Kevin, you're not in the middle class
In response to a letter to the editor of the C-J-- from a Ford union worker earning $71/hour in compensation.
I heard on the news that Mitch McConnell said that President-elect Obama's proposed tax cuts should include all Americans. I am assuming that this statement means that Obama's tax cuts would not pertain to the rich. Does this include the auto workers, or do we make too much money already?...
If being an auto worker puts me in the middle class (which I believe it does), does that mean I don't make as much money as McConnell thinks I make?...
By the way, does anyone know how much hourly compensation a U.S. Senator gets? I'm pretty sure its more than $71 dollars per hour.
If Mr. Prestigiacomo makes $71/hour in compensation, he is being compensated between 2.5 and 3 times more than the average worker. I can't find quintile data on-line. But I'd be shocked if that doesn't put him in the top 20%-- i.e., the upper-class.
