How is it that Michael Moore\’s father could buy a house and raise a family on the income of one auto worker, and still have a pension for his retirement? And yet this is not possible in the vastly more productive economy of today?
Who says it\’s not possible?
If you\’re happy to have a 1950\’s style house, a 1950\’s style lifestyle, you can absolutely have one person making manufacturing industry wages (to say nothing of UAW style auto workers wages) and buy a house and raise a family and still have a pension.
What on earth are people talking about?
