The American dream is known throughout the world as being something to aspire to, but what is the American dream? If the dream is to be wealthy there are many different ways to make that happen. Doing actual work for a living will make you plenty wealthy but that’s not the dream is it?
According to Fox News– Television host Mike Rowe reacted to a new survey that showed about half of Americans in their 30s are earning more than their parents did at a similar age, while in the 1970s that number was 92 percent.
Rowe said that it may not be reasonable to assume every generation will out-earn the last one.
He said the country is divided, but not in ways typically discussed:
“We’re being divided between optimism and pessimism,” Rowe said.
Rowe said the so-called American dream of living a successful life like one’s parents could possibly be attained if the person looked at all fields of opportunity.
“Maybe your dreams would be better served over here,” Rowe said, alluding to blue-collar trades in which he declared there are about 5.8 million job openings.
