The Upwardly Mobile Barista - AMANDA RIPLEY, the Atlantic

Starbucks and Arizona State University are collaborating to help cafe workers get college degrees. Is this a model for helping more Americans reach the middle class?
 Our class-based higher-education divide explains more about America’s widening income gap than does any other single factor, according to Anthony P. Carnevale, the director of the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce. Declining union membership, frayed social services, low minimum wages—none matters as much as the unequal distribution of college degrees and certificates. http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2015/05/the-upwardly-mobile-barista/389513/
