Any time in history that you have no middle class, you have the haves and have-nots. It’s just like having a 24-foot ladder with eight feet of rungs missing from the middle. There is no way to work your way to the American dream at the top.
The Republicans would have you believe the trickle-down theory will get you there.
Without a middle class, the have-nots will be cleaning houses, cutting grass, cleaning windows and cooking for the haves. Although these are all honorable occupations, you would never be paid enough to ever think of opening your own small business.
Anyone who doesn’t believe this, just ask yourself why unions had to be formed. They were formed so the have-nots could make a living wage, have decent working conditions and save for that dream.
To break up the unions and get rid of the middle class is the haves’ goal.
