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.

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn Chateau likes progressive politics and loves the canines. In fact, she writes fiction about Chester (the Alpha Bichon) and his friends--always with a dash of humor and a dab of poli-sci. Although JoAnn's views are augmented by her former professional life in Psychology and Information Science, don't take everything she says toooo seriously -- what you think and do is much more important! Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.
