Class War?

Anytime someone mentions the unfairness of absolutely untrammeled capitalism, they are accused of class warfare. Well, these figures show that American wages are down about 10% since 1972, and the rest of the article shows that figures for net worth and family income are just as bad if not worse. So — if the working class has taken that bad a beating in the last third of a century, and worker productivity is up some 200% since 1980, then just who is fighting a class war?
