In the 1950s , most women stayed home and took care of the kids while their husband worked a stable job?

and now? two parents work 1 or even 2 jobs to have similar lifestyle, meanwhile in RICH neighborhoods, people in their 30s and 40s are pretty much set up to be retired already, living in a nice sized home in a rich neighborhood, spend most of their time playing with their spoiled brat kids and their family dog?... show more and now? two parents work 1 or even 2 jobs to have similar lifestyle,

meanwhile in RICH neighborhoods, people in their 30s and 40s are pretty much set up to be retired already, living in a nice sized home in a rich neighborhood, spend most of their time playing with their spoiled brat kids and their family dog?

why this has happened?
Update: ********Reagan? I thought it started with Robert Kennedy going after the trucker union with prosecuting Jimmy Hoffa on some fraud indictments**************
Update 2: I think by Nixon's time though it had become so deregulated and corrupt that the markets were manipulated to screw the middle class and just kept on screwing them right up till now. especially with letting all the third world illegals in to work half price or less!
