And the middle class is (and will continue to be) the driving force behind ANY economic recovery. So if the "MIDDLE CLASS" is "still hurting", this would imply that THE ECONOMY is "still hurting".
I agree with you. I have had my share of the economic stress. I was laid off from my job last November, and I thought that I would just go out, and get another job quickly. I found out that it was really hard to even get an interview, because most jobs were just looking for employees with certain education and experience requirements. Hopefully my family pulled some strings to help me out, but I believe that the economy is not the best. thanks for the post.
I'm blue collar-ish, middle class.
I have kept my job, but my salary has been cut significantly.
There will be no "correction" - my new salary is permanent.
I now can't afford to live where I have lived for as long as I have had this job.
My building has 12 units, only 8 are occupied.
So, yup. Hurting continues.
