📢Die #Mittelschicht gilt als Rückgrat unserer Wirtschaft & Gesellschaft. Bröckelt sie⁉️In einer gemeinsamen Studie mit der @OECD haben wir eine umfassende Vermessung der #Struktur, #Arbeitsmarkt|entwicklungen und Mobilitätsdynamiken vorgenommen📐. Die wichtigsten Ergebnisse im🧵
(2/10) Die #Mittelschicht in Deutschland ist bis 2005 geschrumpft und hat sich seither nicht erholt: 1995 zählten noch 70 % der Bevölkerung zur mittleren Einkommensgruppe, 2018 waren es nur noch 64 %. Vom Rückgang📉 war vor allem die untere Mittelschicht betroffen.
(3/10) Die #Chancen, innerhalb von 4 Jahren in die Mittelschicht aufzusteigen 🧗‍♀️, sind deutlich gesunken. Gleichzeitig stieg auch das #Abstiegsrisiko⛷️ für die untere Mitte und war zuletzt 3x höher als im mittleren und sogar 6x höher als im oberen Teil der Mittelschicht.

For the record. Among the four major candidates contending for the Democratic presidential nomination, only 1 is a #Boomer. That's Warren, born in 1949. Biden, Bloomberg, & Sanders are all pre-boomers. The #babyboomer generation is defined as those born from 1946-64, post-war.
#Biden and #Bloomberg were both born in 1942, during the war. Sanders was born in 1941, just before US involvement in the war began.

We've had four #babyboomer presidents: #Clinton, #GWBush, and #Trump, all born in '46, and #Obama, born in 1961.
Interestingly, we've had no presidents born in the 1950s, which is sort of the heart of the #babyboomer BOOM!

Ever notice that Han Solo's arc in the original Star Wars trilogy is basically an allegory for the pop-cultural conception of average, middle-class American masculinity? I just thought of this. Consider... 1/4
Star Wars: Han Solo's in his 20s. Young. Vital. Virile. On the surface, he's a hot dude with no attachments beyond his shitty car and his great dog. Inside he's barely holding it together. Beset by loneliness and anxiety. Has zero credit and crushing debt. 2/4
ESB: Han Solo's in his 30s and wrestling with responsibility and commitment. He's a few years into a career, and met a great girl who's too good for him. His buddy is way more successful, but a total sellout. By the end, he's literally frozen and owned by his debts. 3/4
