When experts toil in ignorance

Found this bit of idiocy at Bloomberg Businessweek;

 Any attempt to draw lessons from the 1950s, when many a high school-educated (white, male) person got a job in a factory and joined the middle class, doesn’t account for the changes in the U.S. and global economy since the middle of the last century.

That's what happens when you spend your life studying work instead of doing any. This is for you, Charles Kenny:

GM strikers in Detroit, September 14, 1970

As you can see, Mr. Kenny, it wasn't just white males who made a decent living in a factory. And by the way, you could make a good living without that high school diploma.
