  •  Thank you for this face of what people (13+ / 0-)

    living paycheck to paycheck means; we are living in a harsh world where profits are more important than the needs of people. So many of us forget the human being behind all the statistics and economic policy. I was talking with the plumber who told me that he listened to what the government over here says and simply thinks life has always sucked for me and my friends and thinks that only when the middle class starts getting screwed over will something be done. The middle class is getting screwed over; perhaps they will begin to understand what so many have had to live for so long; can we pay the necessities, can we cover our rent, food, how much can we put off for a bit to cover what needs desperately to be done and where a broken appliance puts you into heavy debt. Thanks for this diary!

    I've republished it to the anti-capitalist chat, I hope that is ok.
