  •  median hourly wage.... not average (0+ / 0-)

    $16.71 times 40 hours.

    But thats not really how it works, median for all workers was IIRC, 23k in the 2011 Census report. Thats part time, Seasonal, teenagers etc.

    Full time male year round was 36k.

    Average numbers are much higher, and dont properly reflect trends, of either the well to do or the working poor.

    .................expect us......................... FDR 9-23-33, "If we cannot do this one way, we will do it another way. But do it we will.
