I'll take that job for $80 an hour

"Executive excess and it's contribution to the financial crisis gets alot of ink these days, but what about the excess of the regular employee? For a forklift operator to get $82/hr plus benefits, a pension, and a 401k seems slightly excessive to me."

If that seems excessive, how about looking at real wages and benefits instead of made-up ones?
