Middle Class Meltdown
Tuesday, September 16, 2014
The American middle class, the backbone of our economy, is collapsing. These are the workers, middle managers, small business owners who have fallen victim to rising economic inequality. Their wages have been stagnant for years, employment uncertain, their debt levels have been rising and they face increasing child care, health care and education costs. We hear from the author of a book about why this is happening and what to do about it.
Dr. Scott Fitzgerald - Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Sociology at UNC Charlotte; author of Middle Class Meltdown: Causes, Consequences and Remedies.
- Dr. Fitzgerald speaks on Thursday, September 18, at 6:30 p.m. at UNC Charlotte Center City to discuss his book. RSVPs are requested here or by calling 704-687-1429.
