How to fix the hurting middle class: Jobs or opportunities?
Since the recession the entire world has been hurting. Never since the great depression of the 30’s have we seen so much pain, fear and suffering. There have been a bit of recovery, but those have been at the low end of the scale. A recent study and an article by STEPHEN GANDEL OF TIME MAGAZINE suggested that the middle class has taken the brunt of the recession and is yet to recover.

The glory days are over for the middle class when it comes to “posh, high end, office with a view jobs” and it’s about time! Harsh? I think not. For too long the middle class has been cruising through life with minimal effort. They are among the brightest of the world population but they have hardly ever engaged their brains and think outside of the box. If you are so “bright” and educated why can’t you see that 95% of the population is dead broke upon retirement because they locked into the 40/40/40 rule? Working for 40 hours, for 40 years and retire on 40% of your incomes is a recipe for disaster! Majority of the other 5% of people who are living in abundance and wealth are business owners and a few sports stars and popular celebrities. Why are people in the middle class still looking for a job? A full3 year after the start of the recession. It time to wake up and smell the coffee! Its time to engage your brain for even once and look at other alternative. After all was taught early that the human spices were all born with a sense of survival and will mutate to its environment to survive.
