From the Wall Street Journal:
Here’s the good news. After getting short shrift for years after the recession, families in the bottom 99% of earners finally saw some noticeable income growth in 2015. Even adjusted for inflation, average incomes across that huge swath of households grew 4.7% from 2014.
But don’t break out the champagne (or boxed wine) just yet. Everyone else–that is,those in the top 1%–saw their incomes grow nearly twice as fast, by 7.7%.
I finally got me a raise;
now some more bills I can pays.
Of course I must ration
for taxes, inflation —
it’s back to those meatless Sundays . . .
