Seems everyone has felt the economic crisis in his wallet. Unemployment remains high, wages are low, and salaries are frozen. Even C-level executives saw little if any upward mobility in salaries from 2008 to 2009.

Compounding the pain is the perception that incomes are fixed, with little opportunity to increase personal earnings.
