No Middle Class Without a Poor Class

An Open Letter To The Middle Class (spoiler alert: F*ck You)

The reason I say “fuck you” to the middle class is that holding onto the status of middle class requires a poor class.

There would be no middle, without the poor. That 1 in 5 kids in the United States live below the poverty line is both immoral and a requirement of our system. This system holds as its very center, heartbeat and myth of the American Dream the cherished middle class.
