Letter: They know nothing about working class

Both presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, promise to make life better for middle class working people.

But have you noticed that both have created very high-salaried positions for their own children, making them instantly rich? This ensures that they will never have lived the lives of middle class working people — not for a single day. It would not have hurt those precious kids to have served for a few years in the military. Or to have the kinds of jobs that we working people toil at for our entire adult lives.

The British have coddled their royalty for hundreds of years. We have our own royalty: families living in luxury and passing it on from one generation to the next. I only wish they wouldn’t pretend to understand how the rest of us live.
