Robert Reich on the Rich and Poor

            In the essay, "Why the Rich are getting richer and the Poor, poorer " Robert Reich writes about the topic of global economic structure and each set of workforces in the social spectrum. Reich's essay seems to be warning the general public of what is happening all around us. We ourselves are classified under his hierarchy of social class and he effectively proves so as he addresses the economic gap with valid evidence regarding history and statistics. Robert Reich intends to inform the readers of the growing gap between the upper half of society and the lower half of society, by using a metaphorical structure, and effective examples and statistics in history.
             "Why the Rich Are Getting Richer and the Poor, Poorer"" by Robert Reich, states that we as Americans were once in the same economic boat, however, the three identities within the economy, being routine producers, in-person servers, and symbolic analysts are now classified as three different categories. Reich first states how routine production workers in the rapidly sinking boat were once paid relatively well, but as time progressed routine workers would be replaced by people in different regions of the world working just as hard for less money. The second slowly sinking boat of labor workers are the in person servers who are fiercely competing for their job against other routine workers and now machines such as automated tellers, computerized cashiers, and robotized vending machines. Lastly, the only boat that stays afloat are the symbolic analysts. American businesses itself became a global web almost unmarked by eminence from any other global business.
             The essay effectively informs the audience about the growing gap between the higher class of society and the lower class of society. In no way does the author intend to persuade the reader. The author uses no persuasive diction, entail a call to action, or choose a side to argue or support.
