[OP-ED]: The middle-class comeback is real

 09/06/2017 - 12:29
Para que Estados Unidos tenga éxito se requiere una clase media grande—y mayormente exitosa. El renacimiento de la clase media es prueba de optimismo. La pregunta persistente en este Día del Trabajo es si ese renacimiento perdurará. ¿O volverán los recuerdos de la Gran Recesión a perseguirnos?

On this Labor Day, the American middle class survives. Indeed, it’s expanding. That’s not the conclusion of some arcane scholarly study. It’s the judgment of Americans themselves, though it hasn’t received much attention from politicians or the media. Most Americans have moved beyond the fears bred by the Great Recession. The middle-class comeback may be the year’s most underreported story.
