You said it quite well. My father is the epitome of the middle class worker. He did manage to carve quite a nice place for himself but it's far
from secure. He was forced to retire by his boss because his wages were too high and it's cheaper to hire kids fresh out of college. This was after
he denied my father his promotion to vice president (that he promised numerous times) a few years earlier. He gave that position to his son.
Our so called capitalist system (which was never truly capitalist) has failed. This will become clear to everyone soon enough if it isn't already.
A society with greed as not just a virtue, but a cornerstone, is destined to become corrupt. There's a reason that nobody ever includes greed on the
list of virtues. It isn't one. We are paying the price for pretending for so long that it is.
