No Income Gain for Young College Grads

The latest income distribution numbers are out from the Census Bureau. There’s something there for everyone, Democrats and Republicans. Real median household income is up, real mean household income is down. Real median earnings of both male and female full-time workers rose, but Real per capita income fell.
