    Is There (Middle Class) Life After Maytag? - Wilmington Morning Star, NC
    The downshift is reflected in the Labor Department’s national data. Median family income has risen at an average annual rate of only six-tenths of a percent, adjusted for inflation, since the mid-1970s — in sharp contrast to the 2.8 percent growth rate in the preceding 26 years.

    Hardship, however, is initially postponed in Newton. Local 997 of the United Automobile Workers, representing Maytag’s blue-collar staff, negotiated a severance package with Whirlpool last fall that extends each departing worker’s health insurance for five or six months and pays at least $850 for each year worked, up to 30 years.
