Our country is so lucky that we have our lower- and upper-middle class who are the ones who are growing the economy and keeping it moving. A weakened economy hurts all of us by stifling our country’s economic growth.
The people in the lower- or upper classes can also possess middle-class values. They are not exclusive to the people who are actually middle class. The middle-class values include qualities such as hard work, self discipline, thrift, honesty, aspiration and ambition.
Hopefully our great country will repay our middle class for what they are doing because they certainly deserve it.
