I like Lucinda Rosenfeld’s Notes on the Upper Muddle because it allows us to be in the white working classes’ shoes. Although Rosenfeld might not represent the WHOLE white working class, she gives us her experience and thoughts rather than just her ideas on change.
She compared both of the societies that she was in. I thought that it was interesting how she states that it is okay to not be extremely wealthy. Rather, to be educated in public schools and explore who you are. Instead of spending tons of money on private schools, you would be able to spend it on other important events and things that would affect your life.
This makes me wonder to who this working class voted for. There will always be the boundaries in wealth, but hopefully the boundaries are not too far away.
