Our middle-income jobs are disappearing. Evidence shows that living-wage, family-sustaining positions are quickly being replaced by lower-wage and less secure forms of employment.

Thanks Freya,

"But the evidence shows that living-wage, family-sustaining positions are quickly being replaced by lower-wage and less secure forms of employment. These plentiful low-level jobs have padded the unemployment figures, leaving much of America believing in an overhyped recovery."

The 2008 shearing aside, this was repeatedly predicted before NAFTA was signed on December 8, 1993 by Hilliary's husband Bubba.

"....A guaranteed income will only come about if 35 years of redistribution to the rich is reversed"

35 years is a long time to be gamed by the rich and politicians. The middle class wants its money back.....with interest.

Noted. Thanks, Freya.
This broken and corrupted system cannot be sustained. Raising the minimum wage should not happen over a period of time, it should happen right now. The wealthiest & corporations should have their taxes greatly raised A.S.A.P.
We have all been "waiting" long enough. Pitchforks are coming.......
