Obviously, the middle class would find itself disadvantaged if they don’t have the political and economic power to better their situations. There is room to raise them up without encroaching on the upper incomes to any great degree, but one doesn’t move their income up by simply demanding it. The “invisible hand” must have its day. Some of the benefits, such as education assistance, could be extended to the middle and lower classes and give a little space to aspire to. At least in your country you don’t have the immense impediment of health insurance premiums to overcome in any social planning. I think it becomes more obvious with every study that socializing more sectors of common need, such as education and health care, is the only way to maintain a semblance of fairness while also allowing a well regulated capitalism to benefit the economy.
