Nah, the cost of living is rising higher than the poor people's wages. There for, getting poorer.

Nah cause the price of various goods, especially in terms of technology, are getting way cheaper. So the overall standard of living is basically improving.

Wages have stagnated vs inflation etc in America recently.. but that's over the last few decades alone. In general, you're living way better than Marx ever did.

Better tools and advancements in technology doesn't mean I'm richer. I can't afford my own home, vehicle, bills and food if I was on my own. I know this. Even with the help I've gotten from living with friends, etc. I've had to save my money for months just to afford most of the tech I currently have.

100 years ago you might be in a bread line hoping not to starve.

in the US, the growth of millionaires to billionaires has meant a shrinking middle class

however, you can look at the world globally over a long period of time, and you will see that poverty is shrinking, as many countries that were previously under crushing imperialism have begun developing i.e. India
those countries are just going under the basic process if industrialization, lol. The same process we went through 100+ years ago. They're richer for it and so are we. Basic things like running water, electricity, and food are a given. On top of that, the poor walk around with smart phones in their pockets more powerful than the best computer IBM could buy like 50 years ago.

Like I said, in general everyone is getting richer.

I ignore references to women reading to keep my blood pressure down.
