Can anyone here point to a time when wage growth kept up with inflation? I can't.Why stop with a pathetic $15hr wage or for that matter AOC's $24hr. Who lives the good life on that. How about $50 an hour and make unemployment insurance pay the same, not everyone feels like working.
I do see a lot of instances these days where people significantly over-estimate their worth. The most recent one chose to move on last week. He didn't understand that his math wasn't reasonable, expecting to be paid only 10% less than the highest paid guy with a productivity rate about 60% lower.
