Future of the Middle Class? 

Future of the Middle Class? 

One main factor that continues to be an issue for the middle class is the stagnant wages. According to The Middle Class at Risk, most families require to separate sources of income to make ends meet when the common middle class used to live off one income for the entire family. The Middle Class at Risk mentions important points such as giving tax breaks to the wealthy, opposing policies that help families juggle the demands of work and home, blocking measures that raise wages, and slashing education investment and undermining a key ladder of opportunity, to emphasize the struggles that middle-class experiences. How are young students suppose to afford college when tuition has increased at least 21% within five years? How are Americans to earn more money by only working longer hours but are not paid overtime wages? How does the middle class suppose to increase income and responsibilities at home when middle-class programs such as social security are cut to pay for tax breaks for the wealthy? When a middle-class person cannot afford education, more than likely their job title results in a waitress, cook or security guard, which represents the middle class at its best, according to Fareed Zakaria in The Post-American WorldThe Middle Class at Risk also relates to No Direction Home by Natasha Zaretsky as she explained arguments concerning unemployment rates, education reforms, and the actions of the presidents and the Republican parties.
