The Wage That Meant Middle Class
Whatever Senator Barack Obama meant by his less than artful remarks about small-town Pennsylvanians “bitter” over lost jobs, he certainly turned a lot of attention last week to the decline of the American worker, bitter or not.
The talk most often has been of shuttered factories, layoffs, outsourcing and other effects of globalization, especially in a state like Pennsylvania, which has lost tens of thousands of industrial jobs. But there is another way to look at blue-collar workers or their counterparts in the service sector.
Leaving aside for a moment those who have lost their jobs, what of those who still have them? Once upon a time, a large number earned at least $20 an hour, or its inflation-adjusted equivalent, and now so many of them don’t.
Chopping down trees or putting on a roof in 100 degree weather is no easy task. There’s not much glamor or relaxation when it comes to many blue-collar jobs. Workers are asked to work and work hard. In many circumstances the environment is not pleasant and the job at hand can be strenuous, both physically and mentally. It takes dedication and sometimes a lot of sweat to get the job done right. And you don’t usually find too many complaints from those who’ve made it their careers to put in the hours in such conditions.
