Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm probably overstating it when I say "compulsion", but to quote you:

Now. An average middle-class American family that has no savings, is in deep debt and buys junk on credit using their 20% (or more) interest rate credit cards, has no choice but to work, and work, and work.

...unfortunately, there are a lot of people that fall into this description. And with down-sizings, if you have a job, you work more...that's a fact. Maybe "compelled" is a better word...
