I did an analysis of  the ~230 industries that the BLS has been tracking weekly salary for since 2003, and found that after you adjust for inflation, most of them are sinking.

I wrote more about it here, and there's also an animated gif of each year that I couldn't figure out how to embed here. Anyways, what do you guys think?
