The truth about our glowing economy

We keep on hearing great things are happening in America's economy, but it appears those great things are limited to the select few who own businesses or who invest in them and make a profit when jobs are eliminated or are sent overseas.
Whenever we hear of layoffs, we hear of job training to help people land different or better jobs. That invariably does not happen, according to an article in today's New York Times.
When politicians talk about all of the jobs that have been created, they almost never mention that those jobs come at a lower wage, with fewer benefits.
