DEAR WALMART, MCDONALD'S, AND STARBUCKS: How Do You Feel About Paying Your Employees So Little That Most Of Them Are Poor? - Wages As % GPD At All Time Low, Corporate Profit-To-GDP Ratio At All Time High

One of the big problems with the U.S. economy is the disappearance of the middle class.
The rich keep getting richer and the poor stay poor, and many folks who used to have decent jobs and lives in the middle are now joining the ranks of the poor or near-poor.
