In response to those who claim there is a labor shortage in America, if the employment situation in the U.S. is so good, why is it that the Census on Aug. 30th announced that 1.1 million more Americans slipped into poverty in 2004, while household incomes stagnated and earnings fell? According to the law of supply and demand, which also applies to labor, if there were shortages of employees, incomes should be rising in real terms. Even Secretary of the Treasury Snow noted a few weeks ago that many Americans are not benefiting from so-called good economic conditions, despite the fact that productivity is rising. The latter would normally produce increases in wages--if there were labor shortages.
