We have had a form of stagflation going on since 2001.

Expanding employment comes because of lower overall pay per unit.

Aka we (the 98%) work more but earn less compared to inflation.

Job growth comes at the cost of less per unit pay, so the working class pot isn't growing.

I expect this trend to continue unless we shore up oversupply
