2. 90% isn't accurate, but whatever it is, it's

way too many and way too many more are just making ends meet ó above the poverty line but living a financially stressful existence none the less. Oh, and all those millions of homes that have sold at inflated prices to people who can finally afford a home because they can make a payment on a 2 point something percent interest 30 year mortgage, what do you suppose is going to happen to all those peoplesí finances (and the housing market/economy) when the already occurring inflation directly affects their pocketbooks?

You are absolutely right. We need to do everything within our power to ensure that everyone in the workforce gets a livable wage. And for large swaths of the country, thatís at least $20-25 an hour ( not $15) at the absolute minimum for an individual living alone.
