Supply Factors and Stagnant Wages
Blue collar workers’ real wages have stagnated because of labor supply factors. These include:
-The baby boom
They have also stagnated because of:
-Health insurance costs and
-Costs of bureaucracy due to workplace regulation.
Social stratification has increased because of:
-Urban renewal and disruption of blue collar social networks and
-Unnecessary college degree requirements.
In other words, supply factors and government intervention have caused the stagnation of blue collar real wages that the US has suffered in the past 30 years.
