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 think most workers know this
I learned about this difference between worth and actual pay, when I was young by simply watching good people toil so hard and have virtually nothing DESPITE not being spendthrifts. Most workers should know this, if they don't then I imagine they may be the favorites of the company they work for whether they are expressly told so or not because they are too afraid to ask to be paid their true value.

Can you tell the difference between a real cowboy and a wanna be cowboy? If so tell me how.Is it when their boots cost more than their trucks or what's under them boots that counts? Could it be in the way they walk from all the horse riding or the way they shape their hat? What do you think?
