Average? A little more than 30,000. I make 38,000. Not that much. But with all of our real money making jobs sent overseas where do we work? I mean, where does the Government expect everyone to work? They sent nearly every decent job overseas years ago, so now it is either McDonald's or some shit like that. I have seen people applying for Minimum wage jobs that have Masters Degrees.

Our Country, the American Dream, is dead. The Chinese own the American Dream and if you have not seen the skyline of major Chinese cities, they are beginning to live the American Dream.

America is dead and now Obama is dismantling her. Piece by Constitutional Piece. A perfect Marxist. Hitler would be proud of Obama. He destroyed America from the Inside. Well, not like Bill Clinton did not help, but then again, we have Hillary as the outgoing SECSTATE and most likely the front runner for 2016, if Obama does not declare himself "supreme ruler".

No need to lash your frustrations upon me. Many, including myself have not seen this particular data. I've always wondered but now I know the breakdowns. Prior to this all there really is are the MSM headline numbers and vague references mentioned by others.

Now we all know $90k isn't the main class of earners

This is a great topic and a sore point after listening to Rush, Sean and Mitt complain over and over about half the people that pay NO income tax! That's right dumbfucks, even the US government feels sorry for you when you make this little so they don't make you pay income tax!

I used to make 82k but got cut to 41k on the next job after getting sacked. No big deal, we adapt. But at that rate, even using the standard deduction with 2 young children, taxable income is in the 20k range and a deduction or so more that you may be eligible put us at the ZERO tax rate! Not because we CHEAT like the rich boys, but because we make so little that we DO NOT QUALIFY for taxation!

It's INCOME tax Rush, Sean, Mitt. If you make shit for income, you pay shit for tax! Oh that's right, your accountants do your taxes, YOU wouldn't know. Get real.

Catherine Austin Fitts likened our economy to a parasitic tapeworm. A global corporatist-fascist economic model of profiteering at the expense of the community, which is also the way our government functions.
Without a healthy host, the parasite will feed and die with the host. Economic collapse and rebuilding of local economies and jobs is the best vermifuge.

My income has gone down every single year since 2006. I got my W-2 this week and so stunned I thought it was a mistake. I actually asked my employer to recheck it. In 2012 I made almost half what I made in 2005.

Same company different possitions. First they cut the marketing department. Then they merged and reorganized the labels. I left mid 2006 for about 3 months because I thought I would be next. Came back to a different possition that was safer but a lot less money. 2008 they cut the sales department I had been in. It would have been me if I had stayed. 2011 they cut the sales department again. From 20 reps in 2005 the company I use to work for is down to 6.

Now I work for one of the distributed labels at the company I use to work for, so I'm still at the same building in the same profession, but my employer is one of the distributed labels.

Thank God the car and house are paid off. I don't make enough now for the bills I use to have.

The figures are based on W-2 reporting.

It's probably pretty accurate for lower income and even middle income people. (It doesn't include money from drug dealing, which can be pretty hefty.)

It doesn't include 1099's. There are probably a lot of people who pull in significant dough on their 1099's. Maybe not such a big percentage though.

This info needs to be propagated far and wide.

If you have a social media account, please post this info, including the official government link, for all to see.

(Part of the problem we have is that many people still do not fully comprehend the nature of our ongoing economic demise. It is very important for people to see the unvarnished truth about what is really going on.)

 Quoting: Floobarb the Argnorf


So what? Most restaurant servers are poor anyway. I don't see that as being a huge skewing factor in this piss-poor data set anyway. (It's probably more than offset by undocumented workers who earn super-low wages as well.)
