I finally got me a raise

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 . . .
