I chalk it up to the middle class slowly declining. It is becoming harder to make a living and advance economically, however the amount of poor are growing. I fear that eventually it will be rich and poor with no middle class.
I have my own ideas on how to fix the problem, as I am sure everyone does. This is a problem in itself. We wont fix anything if we can't agree on how to do it.
