U.S. median income worsens following the Great Recession


Apparently no one notified the folks in charge of the Great Recession, that supposedly ended in 2009, that things were suppose to improve. However, U.S. household median income fell to $50,054 in 2011 from the end of the Great Recession when the median income of households was $52,195 (each figure measured in 2011 dollars). This according to the Pew Research Center. That equates to a 4.1 percent decline in household income.
