The Middle Class Is Shrinking. But You Don’t Have To …
Have you “heard the news?”
Here in the United States, for as long as I can remember, the so-called “middle class” has been the “majority” of our population.
“Most” people weren’t “rich” or “poor” . In 1971, 61% were “middle class”.
However, the trends have been moving people either “up” or “down” lately.
And today, for the first time, the “middle class” touched BELOW 50%!
In the land of OPPORTUNITY … that’s a GOOD thing, right?
That’s the topic of today’s VIDEO …
Melissa and I learned years ago there’d NEVER be an opportunity for us to:
— Live where we love
— Sleep ’til our eyes opened each morning
— Had quality time with the kids each day
— And each other 🙂
If we had settled for going off to work each day in two separate cars to two separate jobs, we probably would have kept sliding down the “middle class” category as the years went by.
In today’s world, jobs actually COST you lots and lots of money.
I actually discussed this on a previous blog post (it’s stunning!)
Thanks again for “tuning in” today!
Final question for you …
“Should the United States tax the rich and give more to the poor in order to ‘bring back’ the middle class?”
I’ll look forward to reading your comments below!
