The Washington Post retracts its claim that wages are rising and Kerry’s just a downer on the ecnony:

On June 19 we wrote that wage increases had kept pace with inflation in the year to May, and criticized Sen. John F. Kerry for suggesting that wages had fallen behind. We were wrong and Mr. Kerry was right: Hourly wages for non-supervisory workers rose 2.2 percent, while the consumer price index rose 3.1 percent.

Then again, I’m sure that wages for members of the editorial board of the Post are rising faster than inflation, so one can see how it could be easy for them to get confused.
