Living standards of the poor/middle class are being decimated! watch

    • Thread Starter

    This is more so of the poor but soon to be middle class

    - Less welfare available
    - Higher rents
    - Less high quality jobs available
    - Even with rising minimum wage, common sense says more unemployment is inevitable
    - Automation is just around the corner most of those first rung jobs will be automated i.e supermarkets, fast food, warehouse etc
    - Rising costs of education
    - Increasing cost of borrowing for the poor (pay day loan sharks)

    It's a perfect storm, i think the UK will end up like the US - Highly divided! will have tent cities in no time at this rate.

    Not my problem.
