How is that possible Miko when the wages have been stagnent since the 1970’s? Only the rich and ultra rich have had their wages and wealth rise to huge levels on top of their already considerable wealth.

@Night-Gaunt: Actually, what you meant to say is that
almost all Americans are over-employed. Since the
anarchists won us the eight hour day, average incomes

live in a state of artificial poverty caused by
government bureaucrats (and their corporate allies)
creating artificial scarcity, because they’re
terrified of what we would do if we didn’t have to
spend half of our waking lives at work.

15 million under employed (temp./part-time/low wages)
9 million un-employed
Note that many of the under employed are counted simply as employed.
