Bill Moyers with Holly Sklar about earning a living:
“Adjusting for inflation, average wages are lower than they were in the 1970s. Our minimum wage, adjusting for inflation, is lower than it was in the 1950s. One of the things going on is that income and wealth inequality have gone back to the 1920s. We are back at levels that we saw right before the Great Depression.”
I’ve just watched this Moyers’ interview and recommend it highly to “calibrate” your view of our economy, brush away propaganda, bugger illusion, and get on with it.
