Joan C. Williams — What So Many People Don’t Get About the U.S. Working Class


Why Hillary lost and Trump won. He got it and she didn't.

But now Trump has to deliver the bacon. So far the strategy seems to be similar to Reaganomics, tax cuts and tax credits for business to increase growth and assume that a rising tide lifts all boats. That has not worked so well since the 70s, since the ownership and managerial classes have increased their share disproportionally over labor.
