The American Worker
Very, very good article from Truthout by a gentleman named Rick Kepler, talking about redistribution of wealth and why he is all for it... that the wealth in the last eight years has gone to the wealthy while the worker's wages have declined while costs soar. I would take the history back farther than he does... the economy of the US has almost quadrupled since the 1970s, but wages for the average worker have remained stagnant or regressed.
