    There hasn't been real economic growth in this country since the 1960's.  The Nixon era was the beginning of the decline.  There were some improvements in certain sectors during the Clinton years - IT in particular - but now those are being rapidly lost to outsourcing jobs.  A young person's salary should be rapidly growing but with the stagnation we have it's staying still.  Then, there is the crushing cost of college.  All in all, you have the right to feel angry.  No one planned it this way, no one wanted it this way but here we are in a highly globalized economy that keeps salaries stagnant.
