The controversy over a fired Yelp employee's open letter, explained - Vox

College educated students are increasingly coming out of school with higher levels of debt — affecting middle class minorities the hardest — and entry-level incomes in certain fields have barely moved in decades. According to a 2014 Pew Research study real hourly wages in the US (the green line below) have been flat or declining since they peaked in 1973.

And the cities where labor markets are booming — San Francisco, but also New York, Washington, DC, Boston, and Seattle, among others — also have skyrocketing costs of living, in part because of their restrictions on building new housing.

I love Vox. However, I really wonder if this was worth an explainer. ;-)
