Why doesn't this form the silver bullet uniting Democratic battle cry?
""But despite the strong labor market, wage growth has lagged economists’ expectations. In fact, despite some ups and downs over the past several decades, today’s real average wage (that is, the wage after accounting for inflation) has about the same purchasing power it did 40 years ago. And what wage gains there have been have mostly flowed to the highest-paid tier of workers.""
""The US inflation rate over the last 40 years is readily available from the US Department of Labor based on the Consumer Price Index.
$35,594 in 1970 got you the same as $200,000 today.""
It should be clear as bell that wages are the issue.
But Totally lost on the DNC.
