Not a joke
Sad!

Real wages crushed

I wrote earlier:

Many years ago, I was a math tutor in a high school. My wage was $15/hr. At the time, the minimum wage was $8/hr. Fast forward a few years and I learned that the same school is paying $12/hr to their new math tutor. The minimum wage? $11/hr. In other words, a 25-years-old university graduate was making $1 per hour more than a teenage grocery store worker. The situation was worse for the new tutor -- higher living costs plus a decrease in the nominal wage!

Cernovich provides his experience:

Considering how bogus the CPI is, that wage should be much higher. Just looking at rent, utilities, and food, the wage ought to be, at least, $36 an hour today. Instead, it's $12. To top it off, retarded boomers tell these young workers that they're lazy for not buying a house!
