Discussions of social and economic class have taken center stage in the modern American political landscape. Activists chant about the greed; of the people they describe as "the one percent." Middle-class workers face industries changing rapidly due to offshoring and automation. The poorest people struggle for survival every day. With these realities, some are questioning the truth of the conventional American dream-the belief that with hard work, Americans of any class can achieve anything. Assess the facts and decide for yourself in the Class in America series.
