Across the nation, the economy is growing. There's no doubt about that. The problem is, it may be leaving more than few middle class families behind. Studies and analysis by the Akron Beacon Journal suggest if you adjust for inflation, young middle class workers take home less per hour than they did 34 years ago. So, where's the wealth going? Check the pockets of the over-55 set. You're invited to join a conversation about our shrinking paychecks. Tuesday morning at nine.
