Misleading Numbers

The latest economic report indicates that hourly earning are up 6 cents per hour. When CEOs around the nation receive $million plus raises how do you think that factors in to the overall wage numbers? It seems to me that the totals may be rising but the distribution is what we should be examining. Each year we hear about how the wealth gap is getting bigger. Perhaps our economic reports should include that information in their overall evaluation of the economy. Better yet, they should provide a completely separate report for people who earn less than $100,000. That would be a better measure of the real situation. Think about it!
