Politifact ruled that the typical income growth for the rich as compared to the poor was much higher since 1970 that the decade prior. What does this mean? The rich are getting richer and the bottom is starting to drop. I don't know what the government can do to help this short of making the minimum wage $15.00 an hour but the future of the economy isn't looking good. When the poor get poorer they spend even less. That means companies make less money. Then the rich start to get hit. Do you see the economy improving?
