I'm sorry to bother you with this.  I just looked up
the time series for total private average hourly
earnings, seasonally adjusted, in 1982 dollars on the
BLS web site.  It comes back that they've been
more-or-less constant since 1964.

I'm floored.  Is this right, or am I doing something
wrong.  I thought that real wages were generally
higher today than in the past, ups & downs
notwithstanding.  Why are we better off today?

(Better products & two wage households would be a
start, I guess.)
