Cape Town - Middle class consumers and some with very high incomes find themselves over-indebted because they are reluctant to lower their standard of living, according to Debt Rescue CEO Neil Roets.
Roets told Fin24 in a studio interview that this is a very big problem. "(With) all the price increases, they cannot afford that style of living anymore and (still) don't want to work on that.
He said "we're always comparing ourselves with the Joneses and people don't want to face the fact that they have to lower their standards".
