The economy is doing good, no, great!!! From Think Progress: - After adjusting for inflation, wages have not risen during the last three years. In fact, real hourly wages fell for most middle- and low-income workers in 2005 and the inflation-adjusted value of the minimum wage is 29 percent lower today than it was in 1979. - The poverty rate has risen each year since 2001, with 12.7 percent of the population now living in poverty. - Job growth during President Bush’s term has been the lowest since World War II.
