Where The Minimum Wage Would Be If It Kept Pace With The Earnings Of The 1% - ThinkProgress.org

Where The Minimum Wage Would Be If It Kept Pace With The Earnings Of The 1% - ThinkProgress.org | Agents of Behemoth | Scoop.it

If the minimum wage had grown at the same rate as the earnings of the top one percent of Americans the federal wage floor would be more than triple the current hourly minimum of $7.25.

Occupy Hades's insight:

This chart confirms what angry Americans have suspected all along:  The backstabbers of corporate personhood are cheating working class Americans out of a living wage, and they've been doing it for a very long time.  

 

Where are the cost-of-living raises we should have received?  We never got them.  Where did all that money go?

 

The dirty, rotten truth:  

 

The money that could have made families stronger and more stable went into the pockets of the greedy executives on Wall Street, the shameless cheats of the corporate world, and the craven lobbyists who comprise the corporate hacks serving the backstabbers who pay the inside traders and freeloaders in Congress to keep us miserable.

 

However, the appearance of Pope Francis changes everything. When the Pope attacks greed, he's going after Behemoth.  When he does, I back him without hesitation.  He knows what he's doing.
