Let’s play: Spot the Problem

Time for a game. Can you spot the problem here?

Paychecks from private business shrank to their smallest share of personal income in U.S. history during the first quarter of this year, a USA TODAY analysis of government data finds.

At the same time, government-provided benefits — from Social Security, unemployment insurance, food stamps and other programs — rose to a record high during the first three months of 2010.

If your answer is “no”, congratulations! You represent the overwhelming majority of this country.
