The Hollowing Out of America
Why are some people so angry? Because they feel left behind. They struggle with piles of debt, taxes, medical bills, and education costs while some people, the connected, skate on with few of these worries. It creates resentment.
(From Of Two Minds)
People are feeling increasingly insecure financially, but how do we measure this with any accuracy? We can track the number of people working second jobs in the gig economy, those with uncertain work schedules, etc., but even households with above-average incomes and conventional white-collar jobs are financially precarious in ways that don’t lend themselves to easy quantification.
