The bad news: Your wages are declining. The worse news: Surveys 
documenting falling wage actually under-estimate how much your wages are 

A recent entrant to this labor literature, a research paper titled 
“Decomposing the Productivity-Wage Nexus in Selected OECD Countries, 
1986-2013,” studied 11 advanced-capitalist countries and found that in 
eight of them median wages have not kept pace with growth in labor 
productivity. To put the preceding sentence in clear language: You are 
producing more and getting paid less.
