Amazing Op-Ed on the destruction of the Middle Class and our need for a life preserver as the rich get richer. A must read this Sunday.

"Trickle-down economics have worked out terribly for most Americans."

"Productivity has risen 80%, economists report, but the average family's income has risen only 10%, and that bump has come primarily because more women have entered the workforce, not because wages have gone up. According to the Census Bureau, the typical male worker made the same hourly pay and benefits in 2011 as in 1978, adjusted for inflation. Three decades of going nowhere."
