U.S. Wages Have Fallen EVERY Quarter of the 'Recovery' - Jeff Nielson

snip:since the beginning of the imaginary U.S. economic recovery, there are millions fewer Americans who are now employed. Their wages have been falling for every quarter of the “recovery”, and they are also working fewer hours. Growing economies create more jobs; shrinking economies lose jobs. Strong economies have rising (real) wages; weak economies have falling wages. Once again we see the supposed U.S. recovery is pure mythology.

However, with respect to the destruction of the U.S. standard of living, to truly appreciate what has been done to the U.S. population (and the populations of nearly all of the Corrupt West), we must look at the picture over a much longer term. In the 40 years before the beginning of this imaginary recovery, the wages of the Average American fell by roughly 50% (in real dollars).

BT customer was left on hold for more than 14 HOURS when he called to try and cancel his contract

Paul Donovan, 26, had rung to cancel some services never expecting to break the UK record for what is understood to be the longest hold time ever recorded.

The carer of Crook, County Durham, called BT at 7.57pm before retiring to bed and getting up next morning to find he was still on hold - 14 hours and 31 minutes later.

BT say their call centre was closed when Mr Donovan attempted to cancel various services from the telecoms giant over the phone.

However, Mr Donovan insists there was no announcement saying the department was closed, just a pre-recorded message telling him his call on Saturday August 1 would be dealt with.

BMW says it won’t give up the Alphabet domain, trademark

Google's Larry Page introduced Alphabet yesterday, a holding company that will, as far as consumers go, not change much. You probably have noticed that Google didn't plant its new Alphabet website on the domain, however, and that if you go to the website it doesn't have anything to do with Alphabet. That's because it is owned by BMW, as is the Alphabet trademark, and the auto maker has revealed in a statement that it has no interest in changing that.

First victim of Spain’s 'gag law' fined for criticising 'lazy' police

The first known individual to fall foul of Spain’s controversial new “gag law” has spoken out against what he sees as the repression of free speech after he received a fine for describing his local police force as "slackers" on Facebook.

Eduardo Díaz, a 27-year-old salesman from Tenerife, told the newspaper El Mundo that the comment he posted on his mayor’s Facebook page about the decision to provide the local police force with a new and larger headquarters was “just a criticism, not an insult. I get the impression that they are trying to silence the voice of critical citizens”.
