Within society poverty has been a factor towards the increase of social class inequality since the 1980s When searching for my sources I came upon a journal which discussed the decreasing level of poverty within society as well the increase of inequality in the states This journal by Michael J Mandel 200288 The Rich get Richer and thats OK stated as long as growth is strong and poverty is low a little inequality is a small price to pay In this case the poverty in the US has decreased while the inequality between the social classes has increased of that result The journal The Rich get Richer and thats OK has significantly demonstrated that the wages between the rich and poor has widened but poverty has decreasingly lowered Poor families from 1993-2000 plunged from 136-96 the lowest level on record Michael J Mandel 2002 88 The Rich get Richer and thats OK This article raised awareness between blue-collar workers and white collar workers by raising a point that people with college degrees will have better job opportunities and higher wages over time This piece related back to the Post-Civil war events which railroads were made and highly skilled workers like engineers and mechanics were needed to complete the job This segregated the social classes in ways that meant people living in poverty ie people living in poor housing conditions because they cant afford decent housing with their minimum wage people with little health coverage or lack thereof suffer from ever rising up in society These people can barely afford to receive the proper education that they want because of their financial difficulties and the lack of community resources within their area repel them from moving forward The book The Inner City contributed to my understanding of the topic on social class inequality The purpose of the chapter was to demonstrate the inequality of the urban working class
