    actually we have a new paradigm. It used to be big dumb strong guys could make good livings on factory lines like GM without much intellectual skills. information is now the stock in trade. Those who cannot keep up with the changing parameters are falling behind since muscle no longer earns big bucks (unless its on the gridiron, or in the ring etc)

    people who failed to invest in the new skill set are falling behind.

    Trend? You were quoting an AP survey not me. What trend! What surveys document tends? And regardless of said trend just what redistribution wonder is ofailure care? Let's see we have exempt, elites, and politicos all keeping what they have so it's just a redistribution from the middle to the poor....nice job. But hey you did NAIL one fact! That is the shrinking middle class isn't getting rich! And we all KNOW why, just too bad you can't figure it out.

    I think you missed the entire point

    people didn't have to be well educated 50 years ago to make good money. Factory jobs paid well for strong workers who didn't have hi-tech education

    That is no longer true

    Yup. And the middle class was poorer then, too. OP Premise Fail.
