It's not just Americans who aren't working. It's America itself, a country whose economy once worked for almost everyone, not just the rich. In the old America, if you worked hard, you had a good chance of moving up. In the old America, the fruits of people's labors accrued to the whole country, not just the top. In the old America, there was a strong middle class, and their immense collective purchasing power drove the economy for decades. No longer.
