"Sadly, that headline isn't satire, but is actually a real quote from Moody's Investment Service that appeared in the Dallas Morning News in a recent article on spiking energy costs and the effect that they're having on working people.
The quote from the article follows:
"Middle- and lower-income families will take the biggest hit [from increased energy costs]. Still, economists as Moody's Investors Service point out that some low-wage workers might be compelled to seek higher-paying jobs.
"Given the underlying vitality of the economy, many might well succeed at securing higher wages," the firm reported in a reserach note Thursday.""
Gee, why didn't those middle and lower income families think of that before?
