So across the entire American workforce, purchasing power was less in 2011 than 2010. So we have not only high unemployment, but even among the gainfully employed less real wages.

All against a backdrop of record corporate profits.
Is it not to the employee's benefit to have an employer that is financially viable? Do they not benefit by added training, equipment, facilities, advancement opportunities?
