Shrinking Middle Class

A new report from the Pew Research Centertakes a close look at a growing phenomenon: America’s shrinking middle class.

In most American cities, lower- and higher-income groups are growing while the number of people making middle incomes is shrinking.

Jacksonville is one major city following this trend.

We examine possible factors behind this decrease in the middle class with Dr. Jenny Stuber, associate professor of sociology at the University of North Florida.
