Current Events – 27 September 2017

“Our country is failing to live up to its promise of opportunity and fairness. It used to be true that if you went to college and you worked hard, you could count on having a decent middle-class life – but that’s just not true anymore. Economic and political changes that have occurred over the past three decades have made the middle-class American dream for today’s twenty- and thirty-somethings far less possible than it was for their parents’ generation. It’s not that we’re lazy, that we have no work ethic, or that we have outrageous spending habits. It’s that we’ve been screwed.” – Camille Perri, American writer and editor.
