Gilbert Quoted in New York Post

“Every indicator we have shows that the country is becoming more and more unequal,” said Professor of Sociology Dennis Gilbert in an interview with a New York Post reporter for a Nov. 14 article. In “Class dismissed: Why middle income jobs are not coming back,” Gilbert continued, “When people are asked which class they belong to … the bulk of the population says middle class, as they have since WWII. There is a general idea that everyone thinks they’re middle class. Regular folks — not rich, not poor.”

 

Gilbert is the author of The American Class Structure in an Age of Growing Inequality (Sage, 2008). He is a visiting fellow at the Center for Latin American and Latino Studies at American University this year.
