Think about it. Nearly half of all working Americans are poor.
Some are really poor. According to the Economic Populist,
...over 16% of Americans didn't even make $5000 dollars last year and in fact this group averaged $2016 for an entire year?This is what happens after years of corporate attacks on workers wages. This is the result of outsourcing, offshoring, misclassifying, wage-thieving, union-busting and downsizing.
The middle class isn't being destroyed. It's already been destroyed.
