El Paso.- The United States may be one of the richest countries in the world, however, there is a growing trend of financial inequality, and middle-class households are feeling the greatest impact.
The decline of the US middle class can be attributed to several factors, including a decline in unions and manufacturing jobs, and a greater need for college-educated, tech-savvy employees.
The covid pandemic also played a significant role in exposing the harsh financial gap, as those in the middle and upper income brackets were able to keep their jobs and/or work remotely.
At the start of the pandemic in the US, workers in the lowest income bracket were unemployed or had to be out of work, albeit temporarily, because their workplace was closed.
