Chew on this
One out of every 34 Americans who earned wages in 2008 earned absolutely nothing – not one cent – in 2009.
Ponder on that.
Johnston writes that while the number of Americans earning more than $50 million fell from 131 in 2008 to 74 in 2009, those that remained at the top increased their income from an average of $91.2 million in 2008 to almost $519 million.
The wealth is astounding, says Johnston. “That’s nearly $10 million in weekly pay!… These 74 people made as much as the 19 million lowest-paid people in America, who constitute one in every eight workers.”</em>
We have been robbed. And it ain’t over yet.
