Right now, the prevalent rhetoric is widening the class divide: the wealthy are soulless bastards who pathologically hoard money and material items; the working class is comprised of lazy freeloaders who feel entitled to regular handouts. Is either of these universally correct? Correct to any degree or not, does it justify the level of divide being felt right now between the upper and lower classes?
In my new release World-Mart, the class divide among the majority is separated by those who work among the masses, those born to work in manual labor, and the 1% who own them all. The story follows one family’s struggle to hold together when the class boundaries between them suddenly change.
