The Melting of the Golden Spoon: Getting Back the Middle Class

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, Dec 12, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 124 pages
Through my ability to listen I constantly hear how middle class people are disgusted with our society and wonder where it all went wrong. This book takes you through my own life experiences and stories of frustration I have encountered along the way. I translate throught the eyes of the common man how the country has digressed since 1969 the year I was brought into this world. The book depicts how things used to be compared to today and a few off the wall subjects we think about as well. It also expresses the opinions of the people about the state of our country and their anger toward corporate greed and our government. Like it or not I am getting it out there for everyone to hear. There are some touchy subjects that are considered taboo to speak about but I do believe we have freedom of speech don't we? Agree to disagree but everyone has an opinion that counts whether it be politically correct or not. I warn you my writings are not sugar coated and tell it like it is. I know everyone will be able to relate in some way and even crack a smile or shed a tear in between.

About the author (2011)

The author started his life in poverty in a small midwestern town. His father, a factory worker, later created the American dream for his family through a union and middle class wages. He learned through him the value and stability in the home and in the workplace. He also learned that these necessities were fought for through hardship and solidarity. He has continued the fight for many years trying to restore the middle class and worker's rights. The author has worked as a union representative voicing concerns and emotions of employees to the best of his ability. He has watched and listened not only in his own workplace but anywhere there is a conversation. The only opinions heard are the people making the rules and not the people that live by them. People are fed up and bad things will happen soon. It is already starting and no one is listening. With a degree in communications and the ability to relate, the author wanted to be the voice for the people that don't have one.
