I don't know about about "labor aristocrats", but if you are talking about
the TU bureaucracy, I guess you would find quite a few of the sort. As you
would in India, Nigeria or Egypt - or in the US in general 60 years ago.
All of those places you would find median household income to be
considerably lower than $21,743.
