Low wages

How the American economy conspires to keep wages down | Gabriel Winant | Opinion | The Guardian:

Basically, workers need more power. We've spent the last 40 years with governments that favor business over workers and low wage growth just goes with that. Give businesses more power and wage growth will lag. Give the people more power and more freedom in their work lives and we'll see some wage growth.

Unions, health-care that's not tied to employment, more support for people moving to where jobs are and less support to keep people where jobs aren't, etc.. all would help.

Hell, a few articles that instead of saying "businesses can't find qualified help" would say "businesses can't find qualified help at the wage they want to pay" would help.
