One of the most financially fragile demographics in this country is women who have none prime credit scores. They are a part of the new middle class and these are women who experience challenges unlike many other parts of the population because they are often mothers, caretakers to elderly relatives, and the people in charge of their households. Their financial wellness matters to many people in their families and in their communities.
We’re tackling this important topic today and our guest is spearheading research to better understand and help these women and all members of the new middle class. Jonathan Walker is the Executive Director of Elevate's Center for the New Middle Class. There he conducts research to better understand the behaviors, the attitudes and challenges of America’s growing “new middle class”. We discuss what is the new middle class, what are the specific challenges that they have, and how is the new middle class forming and shaping our country’s economics.
