According to a new study released by the Pew Research Center, the percentage of individuals classified under the middle class shrank during Obama’s tenure as President.

The cause is linked directly to executive actions carried out by Obama during his eight-year presidency.

Breitbart News reported:

The nation’s middle class continued to shrink throughout President Barack Obama’s tenure, according to a new report from the Pew Research Center.

“A steady hollowing of the middle class, for example, continued during Obama’s presidency, and income inequality reached its highest point since 1928,” says Pew’s new report, “How America Changed During Barack Obama’s Presidency.”

The influx of immigrants alone added to the growing poverty level and the consequential shrinking of the American middle class.

Breitbart News reported:

The population of the United States is also changing amid the massive inflow of 1 million or more migrants per year, says Pew. That is a huge inflow, and it sharply inflates the supply of employees in the economy, so forcing down the wages of the roughly 4 million Americans who enter the workforce each year.

The influx of immigrants is also changing the social demographics of the nation, which is directly related to socio-economical classes.

Breitbart News reported:

By 2065, according to the report, one hundred years after Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy won passage of the 1965 immigration expansion law, the nation’s population will have so radically shifted that only 46 percent of the Americans will be of European extraction.

Furthermore, Obama’s executive actions related to his decisions on jobs in America. While many government jobs have even been outsourced under his tenure as President, the American workforce dwindled significantly.

In relation, many of Obama’s policies pertaining to his promise to lower the unemployment rate only gave temporary solutions to an ever-growing problem, such as creating construction jobs,  which does create jobs, but only for a few months and is not a long-term solution

Many of his so-called “solutions” to the poverty level in America were simply in the form of government handouts as well.

Furthermore, many of the jobs created are projected to be replaced with forms of technology in the near future, leaving Americans unsure about their work situation still, and leaving the so- called “solutions” created by Obama completely insignificant.

Breitbart News reported:

The report also sketched out the growing automation of many jobs which have provided steady jobs to generations of middle-class Americans. The public is worried about the trend — even though many Americans are more confident that their skills and jobs are are relatively safe from the robots, according to the report: 

The technological changes that were such a hallmark of Obama’s eight years will go on, constantly reshaping the way we communicate, the way we travel, the way we shop and the way we work, among many other facets of everyday life. Americans seem to expect major changes: More than six-in-ten, for example, believe that within 50 years, robots or computers will do much of the work that is currently done by humans.
