Median Wage is a Bigger Issue Than Minimum Wage

The U.S. Census Bureau reported in September 2014 that: U.S. real (inflation adjusted) median household income was $51,939 in 2013 versus $51,759 in 2012, statistically unchanged.

In St Louis, Mo. the cost of living is 69,445. How is that going to work if the couple in the household is bringing in $52,000? Even if they both drag that home you have to figure out how to pay $800 to house four people, and that’s only St. Louis, one of the least expensive cities in the US.

Median wages in the middle-income groups have been flat for the last 30 years. No politician or party has a solution for this problem or they would have already fixed it. The only solution is the individual. The only people that have been able to save money in this country are those taking entrepreneurial career risk.

If you want financial freedom you better get out of the middle class.

There are some three million people at or below minimum wage compared to some 200,000,000 that make up the median wage. Maybe that is why you hear politicians talk about minimum wage as something to handle because they know the other is just beyond comprehension. I just wish there was one politician that would tell the American people the truth.

I’m going to be showing you how to get out of the middle class and reach a level of wealth where you no longer have to fear unexpected bills, how to pay for what you family wants and needs and to break you free of financial uncertainty. I want to help as many people get to financial certainty.
