Is the 'income surge' real?

NY Times:

Surging Income? Not in Large Swaths of the Country

While the economy is moving in the right direction, the real incomes of most American households are smaller than in the late 1990s, and Mr. Trump’s message of economic decay is resonating.
I suspect this report is closer to reality than previous stories claiming income growth at an all time high.   With the huge number of people no longer in the workforce, it just does not make a lot of sense.
