The 2010 fourth quarter numbers are in, and show that median weekly earnings of the nation's 100.1 million full-time workers were up to $752, marking a 0.5 percent gain from a year earlier. That's according to seasonally unadjusted numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
That's the good news. The bad news is that there was a 1.3 percent gain in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) over the same period. That means that your salary increases are probably not keeping up with inflation.
