"Profits" here are adjusted for taxes/inventory/capital consumption, but honestly they have to be.
Another way to look at it is in BEA Table 1.11, which lists everything as a percentage of national income. Git yo' NIPA Tables here.
Even Snarky Mark can be wrong - sometimes.
She's indeed making the turn!

Let's not stop there though. Let's look at the quarter over quarter growth.
Now factor in companies that don't offer customer service at all, companies such as facebook and google come to mind, they probably have a hand in the increasing gap between profits and employee benefits.
Can the types of companies in the graph be split into brick and mortar companies versus satellite economy companies?
Example, a car company is still brick and mortar, but any company that relies on a satellite to transmit their service or product probably has less overhead overall and stands to make higher profits.
Also, what about the companies that go under, should they not be included as the negative aspect to the charts?
The winners make larger profits, the losers lose, bringing the overall profit gap down, no?
pay up. Wealth divide.
Same basic story. Same basic conclusions. Sound the diving alarm. Sigh.
