Working class expert: Focus on working class issues

Joan Williams notes that the liberal elite tend to focus on self development and social issues instead of working class issues like a good job, healthcare and education. Working class people are more concerned about the end of the month, not the end of the world, hence economic populism should be our main selling point.

We also need to frame those policies in working class language, so that's one difference between Sanders and Warren: The former does exactly that, the latter comes off as more professorial which doesn't connect as well with workers. That is born out by the majority of contributions to each of the candidates: Bernie gets more from the working class, Warren more from liberal elites.
