Those working class stiffs have too much money now.

We've been doing a lot of home maintenance projects over the past couple of years. Negligence for 30 years will do that.

$5,000 = Counter tops + sinks + plumbing in the kitchen / (3 workers X 3 days)
$11,000 = New windows (due to bad planning 30 years ago they were custom sizes and serious upgrading) / (2 workers X 10 days)
$6,000 = new shingles + new roof decking / (9 workers X 1 day)
$4,000 = stain & paint + power washing the house and decks / (3 workers X 6 days)

If you do the math and project this out for a year, I don't think any of these working class stiffs are going to be above the $250K threshold that is being discussed.
