Poorer Middle-Class Americans

Coaching Tip

There's little doubt that the American middle class—the 40% of households with annual incomes between $50,000 and $140,000 a year—is in distress. Even before the recession, incomes of American middle-class families weren't keeping up with inflation, especially with the rising costs of what are considered the essential ingredients of middle-class life—college education , health care and housing. The squeeze on middle America will be long lasting. .

These statistics mean that on many campuses affluent students outnumber middle-class students. “We
