This is because of something I like to call the Wages Bubble. Right along side the housing bubble, a bubble in wages also formed. There was plenty of money to go around and a good portion of it made it's way into wages. Now if you think it's hard to convince a lot of homeowners that their houses aren't worth what they paid for them, try to tell someone that their job was never worth the money they were being paid. My buddy in Maryland was paying starting trim guys $15 an hour cash. Try getting some of that back now that the wage bubble has burst.
