Over the past fifty years, we’ve seen how America has changed.
You see it every day.
Salaries are not keeping pace with inflation, and in many sectors, inflation is outrunning salaries.
Salaries, and hourly wages, are going down versus inflation, versus healthcare costs, versus housing costs, versus food, going up.
Just about everything is more expensive… thanks to bad government policies and idiots that continue to elect the dolts in D.C.
The real median salary today, adjusted for inflation, is almost 10% lower than it was ten years ago… even lower than it was in the “boom years” of the 50’s and 60’s.
Salaries are lower than than they were before Y2K, and average hourly wages are lower than they were 40 years ago, according to recent article in U.S. News & World Report.
A salary will not keep you and your family afloat anymore, unless — of course — you can quadruple what the two of you used to make. Even two salaries — and two “part time” jobs won’t keep most families afloat.
Retirement? For tens of millions of Americans — doesn’t even exist anymore. With over 28% of the labor force out of work, or just dropped off the unemployment rolls, they’ve gone underground just trying to survive.
Regardless of whether it’s their fault or not, or whether they just had a bad run of luck, or lack of planning on their part, if you don’t get something to bring in “extra bank” into your accounts, you’re going to continue to bemoan your financial situation.
If you don’t HUSTLE and 10X your efforts into a side project of some sort, be it a business, or a business opportunity, or just picking up some side jobs mowing lawns and landscaping, the future is going to look pretty bleak.
The nitwits in D.C. aren’t going to bail you out. They’re not going to give you anything.
It’s up to you now. You’re on your own…
Follow your dreams, and FOLLOW UP on your dreams… or you’ll spend the rest of your life working for someone who did.
With the help of God, I hope the best for you.
