“If you have to work, you’re not really rich.”
Agree with this. I wonder if what we’d call the American Middle class is also feeling more precarious than ever.
I wish white collar workers could recognize that while they’re rich compared to the poor, they’re not rich compared to the rich. If you have to work, you’re not really rich. Workers of all classes could build some solidarity together. There’s a lot of manipulative class warfare turning people who should be allies against each other, when workers are not the root of the exploitation problem: owners are.
