Ultra-rich just getting richer

So what is this outrage at middle-class Americans having a public pension? Thirty years ago members of America’s middle class would celebrate pensions for others and spend their energy demanding their own. They would not quarrel amongst themselves about what is fair. What is not fair is the growing wealth gap between the ultra-rich and the rest of us. The last 30 years have been a “trickle-up economy.” The top 1 percent has more wealth than the bottom 95 percent combined — and that wealth is not diminished, recession or not. But those fat cat employers are not about to grant you a pension. That is up to you. Patricia Grenfell, Auburn
