The U.S. economic news slowly began to improve in 2004-- but many Americans are still struggling in a challenging job market.

More and more companies are giving bonuses instead of raises to keep fixed costs low.

Despite the long awaited job market turnarond, 2004 was a tough year for msot workers. Job creation wasn't strong enough to lower the 5.4 % unemployment rate or to boost wages. The median weekly salary was $638. The median salary for men was $713; for women, $573. Adjusted for inflation, average hourly pay -- $15.68 -- shrank by 0.7%. Experts say that average white collar job pay raises-- 3.5% in 2004 and 3.5% projected for 2005-- are the lowest in almost three decades.
