    Census: Middle class shrinks to an all-time low

    'For many economists, the most troubling statistics were those on income inequality underscoring the middle-class squeeze.

    The 60 percent of households earning between roughly $20,000 and $101,000 collectively earned 46.6 of all income, a 1.5 percent drop. In 1990, they shared over 50 percent of income.'

    - The Washington Post



    This certainly begs the question..
