The fact that you've gained no purchasing power in 11 years is discouraging and problematic for people in the bottom 20 percent. On the other hand, if you look at other states that have some of the similar structural characteristics of Connecticut, you see that their bottom 20 percent are worse off. Things are bad, but they could be worse.
