An Expanding Servant Class or a Pathway to Prosperity?

(p.245) Conclusion
The Servant Class City

David J. Karjanen

University of Minnesota Press

The concluding chapter of The Servant Class City provides a review of the key issues and makes policy suggestions. The lack of economic mobility in the United States is a growing problem across socioeconomic and racial/ethnic demographics. The central research question regarding economic mobility is why so many people in low-income families have a difficult time moving out of the bottom rungs. The chapter also criticizes the current status of urban policy.
