America’s middle class is disappearing. Millions of Americans have been looking for work for more than two years, with almost no hope of finding worthwhile employment so they can support their families. At the same time, we have major US corporations just sitting on trillions of dollars in cash who say that they don’t want to create jobs because they are scared that the economy could crash again. And while most media outlets are either completely ignoring this issue or paying a little lip service to it, there are a few journalists out there with the guts to address what’s really happening in America. Ring of Fire’s Mike Papantonio speaks to one of those brave journalists – David DeGraw, founder of the Amped Status blog.
