Do you know, uh, what the Department of Labor says should be the comfort level of a family of four? A man, a wife, and two children, what they should earn to be comfortable? Not! Moderately comfortable, not you know affluent, but just moderately comfortable in our society. You know what the figure is? Any idea what it is, Christine?
How much? It's a little over 9,000 dollars. So you can imagine-- you know what percent of the American population earns 9,000 dollars? It's not the majority.
