Poverty Rate at 32 Year High

Posted by Jack Stephens on March 11, 2007

Sheelzebub blogs about the U.S. poverty rate at her blog Pinko Feminist Hellcat:

Although productivity is up, wages are down. Middle- and low-wage workers are not seeing their pay keep pace with inflation, let alone productivity. They’re being squeezed. The power of unions have been eroded, and some of our so-called allies buy into the anti-union rhetoric of the right. We buy into and never question the ideals of personal responsibility for everyday people, without holding the people in power accountable or pushing policies that provide working people with fairness and justice.
