The saying “the rich get richer and the poor get poorer,” seems to be ringing true.
Now there are statistics to back it up. The middle class needs to take notice of what is happening all around them and find more ways to make more money, while not relying on the government to take care of them.
The middle class in America’s cities has shrunk dramatically in the 21st century.
The results are fascinating and disheartening: Between 2000 and 2014, the two years Pew reviewed in the study, 203 out of the 229 metropolitan areas analyzed had a decline in the percentage of their populations that fell in that middle-income range.
