        To be completely honest, I often wonder how working class families make it. Gas prices have more than doubled since Obama took office and with that, the prices of necessities has soared. I feel for these folks.

        The last thing we need is to have two classes; a well off class and an underclass that struggles every day.

            As I have posted repeatedly. The prerequisites for being part of the middle class have grown and will continue to grow. It takes more education, effort and intellect than ever before. The days of a high school diploma and some OJT meaning middle class are gone forever. Hate it if you like, but globalization and technology have made this a fact.

            This is not a new phenomena, either. It has happened many times through human history where technology and exploration destroy a way of life .. only to make life better for us all. Everyone should be teaching this to their kids, yet instead many cry that it is the big evil corporations that are screwing people.

            People are also responsible for their own situation. The people who simply have a GED and cannot find a job are as ridiculous as the people with a PhD in 17th century french literature and cannot find a job. You made your choices, now live with the consequences. Particularly when there are so many high paying jobs out there. We cannot find or hire people fast enough in the technology sector. A kid right out of any generic college can get $45K / year and there is no top end .. earn as much as the value you create. Gain skills in data science and analysis along with the tech behind it, people will be throwing offers from $150K - $250 K at you.

            Seriously, we have to import people from Asia just to fill positions. Most of us will always hire an American worker before seeking an H1B. There are jsut not enough americans with the skills though.

                They ALL care, when they're running for office. Once elected, not so much. This goes for all politicians pretty much.

                  I don't see why everyone doesn't just work harder. Has anyone mentioned that yet?

                      I've noticed that Dems are all about the "middle class" nowadays. I guess they figure they have had the poor dependent on govt for 3-4 generations now, so it's time to start shackling the rest of us. Makings the middle class dependent on govt isn't helping them.

                          The formula for success is easier said than done, of course.....but it is easy to say. And it all starts with the word you used above: effort.

                          I can't tell you how many unemployed folks I run across who believe they've made a "strong effort" simply by submitting a resume to a website.

                          And for those employed and living paycheck to paycheck, many simply don't want to put forth the required effort to improve their situation.

                          As has been mentioned throughout this thread, certainly decision-making skills are important as well. But I've found it ultimately boils down to effort. Even those who don't have the intellectual pedigree can overcome that with effort.

                            Yep. And now with a cabal of Washington elites, agribusinesses, and hi-tech business, it's no longer just the poor taking it in the ass from massive illegal immigration. Wages are being driven downward in Silicon Valley, too. Ever wonder why your Messiah makes so many fundraising trips to the left coast?

                              I agree with about 80% of this

                                Not always. Working harder is a problem or the younger generation. There was a time when there wasn't "jobs Americans won't do".
