Yes. My 3 brothers and myself were all grown men before the 'trickle-down' theory of economics came into place, and I believe my younger brother (60 years old) and myself (68), both members of the CWA, were the last generation whose parents were 1st generation Americans, could almost guarantee their children a better life than theirs, as long as we tried.

Not better, when all is said and done maybe a little worse off, but hopefully not too far off. Higher costs of living mostly. Adjusting to the fact I'm a single adult as opposed to a married couple with 4 kids I guess it would still be pretty close. I feel a lot worse because I grew up in a nice middle class house and currently rent a slightly lower middle class apartment.

Financially? No, not really. My father had a pretty good government job with a high salary, great benefits and a full pension (which he is still enjoying and hopefully will continue to enjoy for many years to come). I can't complain about my situation but barring an unlikely lottery win, my retirement won't be nearly as rosy.
