The middle class — especially the lower middle — has been shrinking. Tens of thousands of jobs have been eliminated by technology or moved overseas, thanks to the low cost of communication.
Meanwhile, the gap between highly-paid workers and the rest has been growing — partly because those jobs in the middle are vanishing.
AJC economics writer Michael Kanell is working on a story about this. He is looking for people who used to work at some occupation that has been greatly reduced by technology or outsourcing. That includes travel agents, bank tellers, secretaries and administrative assistants.
He’s interested in other white-collar jobs as well, along with blue-collar ones like gas station attendant and grocery bagger.
Also, if you are still working in a job like that, he’d like to talk to you, too.
You can contact Kanell at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (404) 526-7044.
