It doesn’t get any simpler than this.

It doesn’t take a degree in economics to see the problem here.

Two astounding tidbits from the 2010 payroll taxes data just released by Social Security Administration.

  1. Half of all workers made less than $26,364, the median wage in 2010.
  2. The number of millionaires increased by about 20 percent.

  1. can not like this post as it is such a horrible reality. it is important to see the numbers in black and white. Maybe small changes can start to happen if people wake up and realize the sad truth.
