I am respecting FT's copy right & provide the edited for brevity snippet below for the facebook summary feature for linked content. You can edit that yourself by clicking in that field, (it will turn into an input text box, where you can delete the default summary) and pasting what is below then hitting enter to save the changes. This needs to rocket around the internets for the next week at least.

If wages were at their 63% postwar average workers would earn an extra $740bn this year, about $5,000 per worker.
