    Strong economy not translating into bigger paychecks for rank-and-file workers. Why?
    June 17. 2018 1:30AM Jeff Stein and Andrew Van Dam, The Washington Post

    The average hourly wage paid to a key group of American workers has fallen from last year when accounting for inflation, as an economy that appears strong by several measures continues to fail to create bigger paychecks, the federal government said last week.

    For workers in "production and nonsupervisory" positions, the value of the average paycheck has actually declined in the past year. For those workers, average "real wages" - a measure of pay that takes inflation into account - fell from $22.62 in May 2017 to $22.59 in May 2018, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said.

    Business tax payments plunge, while workers pay more
    Rick Newman,Yahoo Financeā€¢ July 27, 2018

    Treasury Department data for the first half of 2018 show individual income tax receipts rose 8.1%, to $915 billion. Corporate income tax receipts fell 32.4%, to $100 billion. The sharp decline in corporate tax revenue is largely a result of the tax cuts President Trump signed into law at the end of 2017, which cut the top corporate rate from 35% to 21%. Here are the numbers:
