Important point: Wage growth is at a 9-year high. But corporate profits are at an all-time high.
The reality is workers are still getting a small share of corporate income. We aren't seeing any signs that's changing, even in this strong economyhttps://t.co/iIPAEDvl6h #jobs pic.twitter.com/Y48sxkADJ6

earlier this week:
U.S. workers are seeing the fastest wage increases in a decade.
Today's Employment Cost Index showed wages & salaries growing at 2.9%, the best in 10 years.
Friday's jobs report is likely to show wage growth over 3% for the 1st time since April 2009.https://t.co/odMblynqUM
