...I'm okay with being REALITY-based.

PRODUCTIVITY IS UP!!! Everyone is wetting their pants in delight that this is yet ANOTHER SIGN THE ECONOMY IS IMPROVING BY LEAPS AND BOUNDS!! Companies are showing big profits because their strategy of laying off thousands of people to cut costs has worked - so the stock market will go up and everyone will be rich again!

So... let's get this straight. Today's report tells us that productivity levels are higher than they have been in 20 years... which means that fewer than ever people are working more hours than ever for less pay and benefits than ever before.

Happy Happy Joy Joy.
