Salt Lake City, UT – The journalist Anthony Brooks says that being part of the middle class in America isn't so much about your income level. It's about a set of cultural values and aspirations - and a connection to the American dream. But today, middle class families are in distress. Wages have flattened while the cost of living has increased. Hard work is no guarantee of a move up the economic ladder. Brooks joined Doug to talk about The Vanishing Middle Class. (Rebroadcast)
