No such thing as the middle class
I saw some posts by crybabies lately about how the middle class can’t pay their bills and the middle class is under attack.
Look friend, there is no middle class.
All there is, is your family against the world. And I say FAMILY because that is who has by far the biggest role in determining your future success. So many people want to blame the government as if it’s to them to fix your life. How about blame your parents for not being more successful in life so they could help you out the way so many other parents do? Why is it unfair that my parents did well and yours didn’t? If you like a huge welfare state then go check out Sweden, but I’ll bet you won’t like the 100% tax added on to buying a car lol.
The middle class existed from the 1950’s-1990’s back when a huge number of people were doing essentially the same work for the same pay, that being manufacturing. Back then a senior manager might earn 2-3x average wage and the CEO maybe 10x. Those jobs and their limited room for advancement no longer exist but today we have more opportunities than ever.
There are more high paying jobs and careers than ever before. There are more wealthy Canadians than ever before. You can no longer thrive by just showing up and having a pulse, you need actual skills nowadays.
So if you’re falling behind in life, it’s not the country’s fault. It’s yours, and your parents’. You’re falling behind the pace in the race of life. So get moving faster or accept your place in life bud.
If you want to talk class this is how it actually works out:
1-people who work or are owners/investors and are increasing their net worth
2-people who work but are not increasing net worth
3-people who don’t work but are self-reliant (employment pension or rental income )
4-people who don’t work and rely on social assistance to survive.
So many people want a handout without even lifting a finger to turn their lives around. I’ll tell you this, when I’m retired and it’s time to share my millions I’ll be leaving it to my kids for them to have a nice life rather than giving it to charity.
