This graph, released in a wage study by The Hamilton Project, shows that mean earnings for men have declined since 2000, but median earnings have dropped since 1969. These graphs show wages in 2009 dollars. Though that’s only part of the issue. The graphs shows full-time men only, but if you include all men then the median wage falls a much steeper 28% over the same period. Men without a high school diploma suffer the most from this decline. Their wages have fallen 66% since 1969. However, education doesn’t stop the issue–median wages for men with some college still fell by a third.
