Middle Class Struggle

There's a new book out by journalist Nan Mooney called, "(Not) Keeping Up With Our Parents: The Decline of the Professional Middle Class," that is now on my Wish I Had Time To Read This List. Check out this interview with Mooney on Salon.com (you might have to watch a 10 second ad to click through to the interview). She highlights the challenges currently faced by the new Middle Class (increasing healthcare & education costs, stagnating wages, increased debt, the changing face of home ownership) and redefines Middle Class for the 21st Century.
