The Richest Americans Got Richer Last Year While The Rest Of Us Muddled Along
Average Americans haven’t seen much improvement in their income recently. But according to updated Census Bureau data released on Wednesday, the rich keep getting richer.
The income earned by Americans at the median was $53,700 in 2014, which represents the third consecutive year without any statistically significant increase, following two consecutive years of declines. Other research has found that the typical American worker hasn’t gotten a raise in a decade despite steadily increasing productivity.
