    • Having an education is very important to most people and having an education helps the future generation. The cost of education is very expensive and it has stopped many people from continuing their studies

    • Hey Jack! I loved your article! In this article it quotes, “A college education is not affordable for all Americans. College is necessary for success in any person’s life”. I think that I am going to have to disagree with this quote because college is not necessary for success in someone’s life. College can be a success in some people’s lives yes I do agree with that. Not everyone makes it big in life because of college though. Most of the billionaires did not go to college. Most of the billionaires made it because they had a dream and they had a vision, they thought outside of the box.

    • Hi Jack,

      This is a very interesting post. I strongly agree with what you said in the post. There are a lot of people want to go to college but they couldn’t affort it. That is why we should use this chance to study hard and maybe help more people to get into college.

      Sincerely,

      Clinton Kwong.

    • I agree with what this user is saying. The middle class seems to be looked over and not owed what they are due. The middle class, which are the harder workers, help to make things happen and I think they should be reexamined and should be given their fair equity.

    • Jack, I agree with you. I like when you said that “the rich just keep getting richer, but the problem is that they are leaving everyone behind.” This is very true because the rich control everything, when the middle class is what drives the economy. There is such a large gap between middle class wages and the top 1% earners, causing problems with the economy. What steps do you think we can take to diminish the gap. This reminds me of the documentary we watched in class by Robert Reich. He said that the economy is run by the middle class, so if they earn more, they have more spending money to invest back into the economy. It is not fair that middle class people have to work so hard, for so little. The income inequality is so great between different classes. Many years ago, the difference between the wealth and middle class earners was not nearly as great as it is today. I think you should write on what the solutions could be and what steps we could take to succeed based off Robert Reich’s video. You could also discuss how the nation will look in the near future if the inequality gap increases. Here is a link to an article by the Washington Post, further discussing the inequality in America that I think you will enjoy. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/09/26/income-inequality-america-highest-its-been-since-census-started-tracking-it-data-show/

    • Hey Jack, I actually agree on what you are saying about the middle class trying so hard to gain more, and yet they earn less on the salary they have on the job they are in. The middle class is always the ones that make the work place move, so in which case the middle and high class are like ants (for example) there are three types of ant workers in an ant colony: the travelers, the miners, and the nurtures. Each one of these works help the work place (or colony) to grow for the high class to try to make a few adjustments to the workplace if he wants to. I believe that the reason that they are lowing the salary of the workers because they don’t want to waist the money that they are not using because they are thinking to spent in a higher cost for them. Do you agree what I’m saying?

    • I think that the middle class does often become an after thought. most of the time the upper class will benifit from the work the middle class has done. It’s unfair but this is the system our country runs with. Reagan coined the phrase trickle down economics and we thought it would work.
