`` In 1973 a man with a full-time job was earning $53,294 measured in 2014 dollars.  The latest Census data finds that a full-time working man today is making $50,383.  Keep in mind this is for those that actually have a job.  We have more than 94 million Americans that are "not in the labor force" a record by any measure... While output per hour of work is up nearly 2.5 times wages are simply not keeping track... there is a growing income inequality in the nation. This is simply a fact. We have a larger financier class in the economy that depends on economic rents.
