Bridging the gap of the middle class

According to a new report released by Pew Research Center, the number of middle class Americans is slowly shrinking.

The report shows that earlier this year, there were more American adults in lower and upper income households than middle income households.

According to the Pew report, since 1971 there has been a steady decrease in the number of adults living in middle-income households at the end of each decade.

The good news, though, is that the median income for a middle class household has increased 34 percent since 1970.

In South Bend, Mayor Buttigieg and other community leaders are aiming to keep middle class numbers high through initiatives like redeveloping downtown South Bend and the area surrounding Four Winds Field.
