Chart: The illustrated history of you being screwed by people like Mitt Romney
by David Waldman Follow for Daily Kos
Quick and dirty, folks. Basically, the upper line represents the value of your work. The lower line represents what you got paid for it.
The empty space in between the difference between what your work was worth and how much you got for it represents the money the executives skimmed off the top and kept for themselves.
How did they do it? In part, by so destroying the notion of job security that workers increasingly felt lucky just to be able to live paycheck to paycheck.

I've read so many comments on this forum by 'believers' that they possess supernatural abilities. Everything from getting advice from God on a car purchase, to personally performing miracles, to saying the name of...
