As President Barack Obama heads into the final stretch of his two-term presidency, his vice president, Joe Biden, said Thursday that the middle class is “being killed” and in “worse shape than they’ve been any time since the ‘20s.”
Biden was in Charlotte, North Carolina, promoting a $500 billion federal “investment” in infrastructure to provide a jolt to the U.S. job market. In his speech, he also lamented the fact that the middle class “has been slammed.”
“What’s the way to grow the middle class? Jobs. What’s the way to get jobs? Generate a virtuous cycle where you generate more opportunity, more employers, more concentration of work in our communities. And that’s what infrastructure does,” Biden said.
