The Different Classes in the US

I recently ran across an interesting interactive piece from the NY Times. Who ever over there created it did a great job. It is called How Class Works and it depicts the different levels of class in the US. It shows Components, How Class Breaks Down, Income, and Wealth.

Why I think it is important is as we embark on a recession we must consider the effects of the last one. Wages didn’t really increase when inflation is considered. Here is the stat:

2006 median household earned $48,201
1999 median household earned $49,244

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
