What Wage Growth? Real Earnings Tumble For Second Straight Month

<p>Despite the surge in consumer confidence and exuberance at what lies ahead, real wages for America's average joes declined year-over-year in February (down 0.3%). This is the<strong> first consecutive monthly drop in real wages since 2011</strong> <em>(which forced Bernanke to to hint at and then unleash QE2 later that year)</em>.</p>
