A Sign of Better Days to Come?

 

I was listening to sports radio the other day and heard a very interesting commercial.  A trucking company was recruiting new employees, which in itself is a good sign.  What was even more interesting was how they did it.  The biggest pitch in the ad was that the company offered union scale wages.  Our economy has been producing new jobs for the last 4-5 years.  The problem has been that these jobs often paid horrible wages.  Workers who kept their jobs received minimal or no raises.  Maybe the ice is breaking when it comes to wages.  Last month’s job report included growth in higher paying types of jobs.  This could be a great time to ask for a raise or test the job market.
