There is lots of talk about income inequality and where it stems from...I think most reasons cited are way off base. I believe THIS ONE is a major source of it but the least talked about.
Education (college/community college/trade school, etc) is the key to (1) a better standard of living (materially and intellectually), and (2) the likely-hood of staying gainfully employed thoughout your life.
Nothing is guaranteed, but education is becoming like insurance in many ways. We hate to pay for it but it sure comes in handy when you need it...or something like that.
