• I also believe that companies have to much control over social media. This is also a good thing because it allows the companies to monitor social media websites.

  • The middle class is the most important part of the economy. The middle class need to succeed so that the economy can improve. The majority of people should own most of the money. This would allow the economy to

    • 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/
