30 Statistics About the American Middle Class.
The Economic Collapse
The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

In the 90's, the decline of manufacturing was presented to us an inevitable. And even desirable. Each manual job lost would be replaced a better-paying, safer white collar job. We were transitioning to a "service economy" or even more lofty: a "knowledge economy". It just seems so laughable, in hindsight.
Even the white collar jobs are being hit. There was no reason for outsourcing to stop its destructive march, especially with advances in technology. For instance, lawyers in India moonlight as legal assistants for American lawyers, drafting documents for less than.

Yes, I come from a very small town in Northern Wisconsin, and I could have told you all of this years ago. It's a small town of 1,000 or so people, and all of us pretty much workers in labor, except for the specialty fields. I worked my entire teenage and beginner adult life doing concrete construction making, for the area, a good chunk of change! Now, that business is completely dried up, and the guy I worked for has to drive to other states just to work.
My father owns a body shop, which is probably why he is still okay, since vehicles will always need to be repaired.
I tried to tell my Dad once that the America he "remembers" is not the America we live in today, and that for him to understand why I simply just can't "get a job and buy a house" in this day an age, he'd need to re-evaluate his beloved country.
