    Actually in Real Dollars*, workers are making less than they did in the late 70's. Workers wages not growing with inflation has been happening for over thirty years.

    *Real Dollars is used by economists and the Dept of Labor. Real Dollars take in account all inflation by using a constant value.

    It's a buyers market just like the job creators like it.

    Actually deflections are useless.
    Younger workers are having to take lower paying jobs than they did in 2005

    You're deflecting from the fact younger workers are making less now than they did in 2005 10,000 less. However if you want to play the devalued dollar we can do that. The feds are pumping out 40 billion dollars a month QE3
