Why is the Middle Class Evaporating?

If you listen to leftists and big-government stooges, the middle class is evaporating because of low minimum wage, greedy corporations, and tax-breaks for the rich. Which would indicate that, in order to grow the middle class, the civil government needs to get more involved. No one argues with the fact that the middle class drives economic growth, and is therefore a crucial component of economic recovery, but what is the real problem here? I think it can be boiled down to a few things:

Crony Captitalism: the civil government needs to stop making laws on the basis of lobbying concerns and kickbacks. The civil government protects businesses from competition. This is bad for the middle class. It means that some banks, corporations, and other firms are able to treat customers and employees badly, yet continue to grow and amass wealth for a small percentage of owners. These owners are basically using government protection to screw the middle class out of money. No good.
