A poster on Reddit asks: What are two events that took place in the same time in history but don’t seem like they would have?

Spain was still a fascist dictatorship when Microsoft was founded.

This war will only end when Hamas either stops shooting rockets into Israel, or runs out of rockets, whichever comes first. Also, if Hamas doesn’t want a hospital to be bombed, then stop…

If you want to know why you’re making less money now than you were five years ago, it’s because the recession replaced good jobs with low-wage jobs. 

The NELP report finds that mid-wage jobs, paying between $13.83 and $21.13 per hour, made up about 60 percent of the jobs lost during the recession. But those mid-wage jobs have made up just 27 percent of the jobs gained during the recovery to date. By contrast, low-paying jobs have constituted roughly 58 percent of the jobs gained since 2010. (x)

Mid-wage jobs are being lost, and the jobs that are gained in their place are either low-wage or high-wage jobs. 

The middle class is literally being squeezed out of the economy.
Take a look at the breakdown of the low-wage jobs with the highest growth in the new economy:

The jobs that are on the lower-end of the scale, like food preparation and retail work are experiencing higher growth, while the higher end jobs, like construction work and manufacturing work, hasn’t grown quite as fast.

True Story: My first job out of undergrad, in 2004, was an entry-level editing gig. $20,000 per year, full time, with benefits, and I was hired a week before I finished my BA. Gas was $1.65 a gallon and I rented a one-bedroom apartment about twenty minutes’ drive from work for $325 per month, utilities included.
In 2009, I saw the exact same job with the same company posted again. In 2009, it paid $18,000 per year, full time, with no benefits, and a BA and three years’ experience were required. Gas was $4.09 per gallon and that same apartment was going for $525 per month, utilities extra.
I wish this were an exceptional story, but it’s not.
