Well this surprises nobody.

Jobs growth in the U.S. since the 2008 recession has been undermined by lower wages, with workers earning an average 23 percent less than from jobs which were lost, a report by an organization representing U.S. cities said on Monday.

Middle-class, now with a quarter less value.

Meanwhile.

America’s richest 0.1%, who have at least $20 million (£11 million) in
net wealth, had at least 23.5% of the country’s wealth in 2012, up from
21.5% from previous estimates.
