Little help for working class

We often hear the stock market and corporate profits being at record highs are proof of an economic recovery. While corporate profits and the stock market being at record highs are facts, the percentage of employed Americans has gone from 64% during 2000, to 62% during 2002, back up to 63.4% during 2005, back down to 58.7% during 2009, and slowly climbed to the present 59%. It sure seems like current government policies are benefitting a few sectors of the economy, but doing little for the working class.
