The War on the Middle Class

I have just finished reading "The War on the Middle Class" by Lou Dobbs.

The hispanic community is very concerned with the illegal immigration issue. But whether you are a legal or illegal immigrant, what future is there for you or your children if Corporate America destroys the middle class?

Every person in America, citizen or not-citizen, should be concerned with the future of the middle class. Without a middle class, America will become another 3rd World country: only the rich and the poor.

There are rich people in Mexico, so why do poor Mexicans come to America? There is opportunity here because the middle class has disposable income that filters down to the poor. The rich do not give any support to the poor. If they did, there would be opportunity in Mexico.

America is on its way to becoming another Mexico. If the middle class is destroyed in America, the hope for all Mexican immigrants will be snuffed out.
