Workers Feel Underpaid

The average worker hasn't seen a meaningful pay increase in three years, despite the economy's rebound, according to U.S. Labor Department data.

That may explain the findings of a national survey released recently reporting a sharp jump in the number of employees who feel underpaid.

Nearly 40 percent of employees think their companies pay less-than-market-rate salaries, compared with 28 percent last year, according to an annual survey of workplace attitudes by the Randstad USA staffing agency and Harris Interactive Inc.

Dan do you know you got the wrong date on your website here? I just saw that you had this as Wednesday but it's only Tuesday. Well that is the case where I live anyway. Maybe you're in a foerign country or something and it's different.

Can I ask you a question? You seem like an educated man so why not get your opinion of something. What do you think about all these war protesters we've had over the years. Seems disloyal to me. I was in Korea and served my country. Everybody's gots a right to their view. I have my fingers crossed that you will agree with me. My wife Mabel says she tried reading a couple of your spiritual poems and she is sorry to say they don't sound like Christian poetry like she likes. I reminded her that the world is full of religions. I am convinced if all these folks around the world knew Jesus they would surely convert to Christianity. You're not a Laoist or anything like that are you? Forgive me for stepping on any toes. Last one for today.
