This article upsets me. Salaries do not increase enough to keep up with costs of housing and education, which increase leaps and bounds over inflation. Even if you compare today’s two-income houseold with a one-income household from thirty years ago, today’s family can afford less.
It upsets me mostly when I think one generation into the future. How will my (future) kids’ kids afford any sort of education? The only people who will be able to be afford college will be the super-rich.
