I consider the J. Peterman catalog to be fine prose – right up there with the last page and a half of Gatsby.

It's not a mystery. Companies just willfully refuse to increase wages in a significant manner -- certainly not in a manner that would reflect their profit growth over the past 10-15 years. And they've learned that they can get away with it, no matter what they've promised about trickle-down wage growth. Their P&L sheets bear this out. Heck, if the average employee complains and asks for even a cost-of-living raise, some companies just fire this problem employee and hire a replacement. They know that they've always got someone in the chute -- not to mention the fact that the Great Recession scared most employees into weak-kneed complacency. So for companies, perpetually training new staff is actually cheaper than giving meaningful step increases or bonuses to longer term employees. And why hire new employees and struggle to open new markets when you can just use profits to fund mergers and acquisitions that gobble up market share -- and companies usually get to pare down their labor force after after such a merger. Furthermore, many low-skill, lower-wage jobs involve actually doing work that was once done by two people. Just look in any fast food restaurant (I run drive through and expedite the front) or retail clothing establishment (I restock inventory, then work customer service) and see this in action. Companies call this "efficiency" or "boosting productivity", and it's very profitable. I know this because I invest in stocks and mutual funds, and I actually enjoy reading corporate annual reports where they extol such labor management and the profitability of efficiency. Yes, job growth is often mentioned, but more often than not, profits are used for stock buy-backs or dividend increases rather than "trickle down" hiring or salary increases. To this day I've never seen "TRICKLE DOWN" uttered in a corporate annual report. https://www.cnbc.com/2017/12/08/lack-of-wage-growth-remains-the-economys-greatest-mystery.html
