50-year trend in real hourly earning for the US wage workers

real wages reached an all-time record of $22.30 per hour in the early 1970.
Ironically, the catalysts for that final wage push were:
- soaring construction wages in NYC obtained by the building unions working on the World Trade Center, and
- a 70-day strike at GM which resulted in the bountiful UAW “pattern agreement” that ultimately took Detroit down.

Whisper (app)

Anyone can post an anonymous message to the service in the form of an image macro
- text overlaid on a picture
- When you open the app, you see 6 such images
- Each one has a "secret" on it
- You can respond to a message publicly or privately,
- choosing a public anonymous post or a private pseudonymous chat
- Users don't have a public identity in the app
- While they do have persistent handles
- there's no way to contact them except *through* the messages they post
