I have no idea what you are talking about when it comes to productivity vs wages. It’s been by and large accepted that there have been massive upsides with productivity, with pretty much flat-line compensation. Employers are generally not providing extra pay despite increasing productivity.
It would seem to me, Pappadave, that you are trying to wring blood from a stone. After all, the top 1% now own over half the worlds wealth, and yet you want the poor to bear the cost of… the poor?
As much as I hear about the baby boomers whining about the “entitled” millennial generation, it seems to me that the millennial’s are pretty much poorer most generations these days.
I mean, do the rich just get off on making sure this income/wage gap just continues to get worse and worse? It seems that way.
