The income distribution in the United States is, from a middle class perspective, as bad as it has been since the great depression. Wages, even for college graduates, are falling behind inflation. The number of families in poverty is growing. Middle Class*Union Made examines the economic forces of price gouging, wage cutting, and excessive debt that are weakening the middle class and leading us toward a landlord society that benefits none but the very few. The income distribution in the United States is now as tilted toward the hyper-wealthy and against the middle class as it has been since the Great Depression. Government must help in reversing the trend, but it cannot do it alone. Strong and effective unions are an essential part of any strategy that will restore and maintain the American middle class.
