Radio talkers always try for empathy. I'm just like you. I started poor and learned how to be rich and successful.
There are all sorts of shibboleths that prove ratshit. A fairly subtle one:
The talker will give a statistic like "68.72% of millenials have less than $1000 in savings. 13.65% of millenials have no savings at all." (Talkers love unwarranted decimals.)
Then he wonders: Where is the money going if not to savings?
His answer is always "Must be in the mattress."
Everyone understands that mattress
is shorthand for keeping money in physical form, in a safe or strongbox or some other secure place.
The talkers often expand the shorthand, so this isn't the shibboleth.
The shibboleth is here: Keeping money in physical form requires resources.
Safes are not cheap, and ADT security to protect the safe is not cheap. Putting cash in a safe deposit box requires both money and knowledge. Even acquiring a meaningful amount of physical cash from a bank is difficult for non-credentialed Deplorables.
Deplorables DO NOT keep money in physical form.
50 years ago this was different, because the system was not biased against cash. Since 1970 banks and employers have moved strongly away from cash, and since Deepstate invented "terrorism" in 2001 cash is essentially forbidden.
Where do Deplorables keep extra money? In the checking account.
This was already true in the '70s, and it's exclusively true today.

A more important variable cuts across rich and poor: Savers vs Wasters. I've been talking only about Savers.
Among Wasters the rich-poor distinction is less drastic. Deplorable Wasters lose their money in the Injun Casino, and Upperclass Wasters lose their money in the Jew Casino. It's just a brand preference.
This down-deep variable explains why the talkers don't understand the habits and motivations of Savers OR Deplorables. Talkers are Upperclass Wasters. Their job is simply to move waste into the Jew Casino. Buy stocks. Buy stocks. Buy stocks. Buy stocks. Buy stocks. Buy stocks. Buy stocks. Buy stocks. Buy stocks. Buy stocks. Buy stocks.
