Throughout the years, the way American life has changed in many ways. In the reading, “The Transformation of Everyday Life” Florida talks about how it would be if you told someone from today’s society and have them live in the 1950’s and if you put someone from the 1950’s in today’s society how things in life would be different. In the reading “The Transformation of Everyday Life” I agree with Richard Florida that there are three different class, the service class, creative class, and working class.

When he became the mayor, he started the youth programming there has not been any deaths due to violence in the community for a while. In the reading the Mayor of Dust, he talks about the tattoos on his arms. On the left arm, he stated, “the tattoos are the dates of the five people we lost to senseless violence in Braddock since I took office” (Fetterman 2). This shows that the youth programming that Fetterman started is a great thing and if other people see this then they might move to this community. This also has nothing to do with the creative class that Florida believes is the best thing to make everything
