Flat/shrinking wages are a real problem for the economy. There is a huge burden of consumer debt. That has to be paid off before consumption can take off as a growth mechanism for the economy. Stagnant wages do not help us overcome that problem.
Why are wages stagnant? If I knew the real answer I would not be sitting here typing rambling bullshiite into BDC.
I can guess though.
One reason is that our education system suucks. Probably even worse is that our culture shiites on excellence in education. Acheivers are ridiculed. Success is punished. I work in IT services. There is a huge shortage of talent in IT here in the US. Can someone riddle that for me? Stop complaining and start studying.
Secondly, we are more than happy to open our borders to labor competition. Republicans like it for business. Democrats like it for votes. The debasement of American citizenship is outrageous. Sanctuary cities and states should be refused federal $$. Employers of illegal aliens should be prosecuted and jailed.
If you want to do something about stagnant wages then abandon your support of policies that create it. Otherwise just Shut the fork up.
