  1. The fallacy of this report is that those lucky to still have jobs have jobs that pay well above the average blue collar worker. These highly paid employees have also seen the price of their homes increase and the value of their company stock and/or 401-k plans sky rocket. WSJ and other financial media have lost touch with reality and their staffs are stuck on the 1930’s BS hand fed to them by their college professors.
