Are You in the Top 50% of Wage Earners in the USA?


“Fifty-one percent of working Americans make less than $30,000 a year, new data from the Social Security Administration (SSA) shows”, according to a recent article at the Daily Caller. “That’s $2,500 a month before taxes and just over the federal poverty level for a family of five.” Forty percent of American workers are now making less than $20,000!

The new numbers come from the National Wage Index.

What the study does not point out is that the average household income in the US is now about $52,000, which means it takes two workers in the home to make ends meet.
