They Won’t Be Ignored Anymore: How White Working Class Anger Elected Trump

This is a great article from Joan C. Williams at the Harvard Business Review. The white working class, households with a median income of $64,000, have largely been ignored by both major parties. Each party, influenced by neoliberal ideas, supported trade deals like NAFTA that shipped working class jobs overseas.

Trump, whatever you think of him and his politics, spoke to these people.

Hopefully, this will be a message to both major parties. You cannot keep ignoring the needs of the working class and expect to be successful.

  1. I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site
    owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever
    before.
