Yes, wages are up.

After 20 years of lagging well behind other economic growth benefiting owners and stockholders.

Yep, there's been a small kick in the last year or two.

You win! Yay!

Because people are still struggling they are living off their credit cards and are having trouble paying their bills for housing, medical and schooling and everything else.
