How do you go about fixing that?i agree to a point. i'd simply like to see some of the missing rungs restored to the ladder. someone who works hard should be rewarded, and should have opportunities. this is becoming less and less common, and the eroding middle class is an illustration.
Now tell me how trickle up economics works? How do the poor and those on welfare and food stamps create businesses to hire people?

Said businesses prove to be unsustainable without the consumer activity that stems from the poor and middle classes, food stamps, since you brought them up, provide many local grocers, shipping companies, and farmers with large amounts of demand for their goods that would otherwise be absent due to personal debt and other immediate concerns.
Worker cost is not only measured in pay but also productivity. If the work force is more productive then that can offset and explain higher pay.
