Reinventing The Dwindling Middle Class May Take A Revolution
As the U.S. recovers from the Great Recession, one fact that’s emerging is that while jobs are coming back, most of these jobs are either high- or low-paying jobs. Middle-class jobs are not coming back, and it’s evident in towns across the Midwest like Lincoln, Ill.
Remind me not to visit Lincoln any time soon. I haven’t seen this sort of decline in Lansing or Leavenworth. The tiny town I grew up in out in the county though is probably a poster child for the situation described in NPR’s article above. Sad and scary.
