not in good shape. In fact, the median income for men went down by 2.5% in 2011, to about $48,202. And it wasn't any better for women, whose median income also dropped by 2.5% in 2011, to about $38,118. And the wage gap between men and women didn't close any in the last year (or actually in any year since about 2000). Women still make about 77% of what men make for the same work.
But have no fear. Willard Mitt Romney (aka Wall Street Willie) wants to give a tax cut -- to the rich. Anyone making the median income will get to pay for Willard's tax cut by seeing their taxes go up by about $2000. Makes you want to run right out and vote Republican, doesn't it?
