All three states featured in our show - Texas, California and New York - show deepening economic polarisation and rising income inequality that squeezes their middle class.

But as host Marwan Bishara points out, while US politicians continue to make promises in support of working families, the strengthening of any country's democracy is a reflection of its middle class values.

Empire can be seen from the last Sunday of every month at 2000GMT, and is re-aired during the following week at these times GMT: Monday: 1200GMT; Tuesday: 0100GMT; Wednesday: 0600GMT.
