6. No - it should be called 30+ years of wage suppression

Wages have been dropping or at best stagnant as workers productivity has been looted by the top 1%, with some "trickle down" going to the top 10% - but virtually none to the actual producers of wealth, the workers.

There's lots of info on this out there, which I don't feel like looking up right now but is easy enough to find.
