Middle Class: I

The Middle Class.  The new [or continued] prize in American politics.

All we hear about these days is that the middle class is getting hammered.  Taken advantage of and squeezed.

Only the rich survive; the rest of us are fodder to the wealthiest Americans.

So I am going to begin a series that attempts to explain the situation of the Middle Class in America.  Not only how we [isn’t it funny that almost all of us consider ourselves in the middle class] are doing at present but how we’re doing compared to where we were.

Before I even begin, I’m gonna bet that we’re better off now than we were 10-20-30-40-50 and even 60 years ago.

And to start it off, check THIS out.

Available to every class.  Pretty freakin’ cool.

  1. Not scientific at all I admit, but my perception is that brands that were middle class, like Sears, JC Penny and so are being hammered by brands that are at the upper and low end like, Walmart and Nordstrom’s respectively. That gives me a sense that the gap from top to bottom has widen and the middle class is disappearing. That does say that in fact top and bottom may be better off than they were 20-30 years ago.
