Stagnant Paychecks for Workers Underlies Voter Discontent

bloomberg.com — Eleven days before midterm elections comes fresh evidence of why voters are unhappy: even if you do have a full-time job, you're probably making less than you did before the recession. Adjusted for inflation, the typical American worker's weekly earnings were lower during the July through September quarter than in the third quarter of 2007, the last such measurement before the recession started, the Labor Department reported today.
