Economy Not Working For Many Americans

The economy is going great, right? Wages are up, unemployment is at record lows, so why do so many Americans feel that the economy isn’t working for them?

And what does that mean for the upcoming presidential election?

Wall Street’s War On Workers

These are the questions Les Leopold answers in his latest book Wall Street’s War on Workers: How Mass Layoffs and Greed Are Destroying the Working Class and What to Do About It. As the title makes clear, the crisis of mass layoffs and the failure of either political party to address it has left Americans feeling like the economy is rigged against them – and no one in politics is taking their side.

Leopold says that the failure of the so-called “party of the working class,” the Democrats, to stand against mass layoffs is the real reason many working class people have abandoned it. And he says workers are far more progressive, even white workers, than the pundits would have you think.
