In a not so surprising discovery, we find out that personal income of those who work FOR the taxpayers have risen during the time that personal income of Americans that work in the proivate sector have dropped steadily.
American incomes have tumbled over the last decade. But for many people in Washington, D.C., it’s been something of a party.
The income of the typical D.C. household rose 23.3% between 2000 and 2012 to an inflation-adjusted $66,583, according to the Census Bureau’s
American Community Survey, its most comprehensive snapshot of America’s
demographic, social and economic trends. During this period, median
household incomes for the nation as a whole dropped 6.6% — from $55,030
to $51,371. The state of Mississippi, which had one of the biggest
declines, dropped 15% to $37,095: Nearly one in three people there have
an income that is near the poverty line.
