How America’s Middle Class Dug Its Own Grave

Americans need to put power back in the hands of workers, for starters

Other ways to do it? Stop voting for politicians who want to cut public assistance and safety-net programs, keep increasing the costs of education, go to war at the drop of a hat, and keep wages at rock-bottom levels. These are all policies that hurt the economy and society at large, despite what political beliefs and supposed tenants about the economy individuals may hold.

If people really want to help themselves and the people around them, then it all starts in the voting booth.
