9 ways to know if you're middle class
There's no hard-and-fast definition, but surveys show what kind of income and lifestyle you're likely to have if you -- and others -- think you're middle class.

Again some idiot with zero qualifications or knowledge about the subject writes an artical. Im tired of useless people who do not deserve more that a min wage job getting the chance to write something. They just throw it together with no research and zero proven facts. As a country we believe it! As a country we have to stop this BS because there are people out there that cant make a decision for them selves so they are influenced buy these over paid retards!
"Middle Class", is a state of mind.
Statistics will tell you that you need to make a minimum of $90K to be considered middle class. Anything below that is "working class, upper lower class, lower class" and so on.
Forget what label you want to fall under, forget what statistics tell you where you fall.
If you work, you try to support your family, and you do the best you can with what you have, regardless of how much you have, then there is only one label that you should fall under...and that is "Hard working".
lol...this post clearly tells you I'm "poor". haha
Two incomes of 50k, home with 298k to still pay off, 8 years from retirement, and thanks to greedy creditcard companies charging high interest, walloing in debt. Equity in the home is gone because of the values plummeting, and now underwater and unable to get out from under the debt.
Worried about the job not being there tomorrow, 401k depleted, worried about retiring. living like we're poor because everything we counted on has been squeezed out. Everyone takes a piece, and is getting rich, while our debt mounts.
There is no middle class, we are all poor on different levels.
How do you know you are raging liberal who wastes there time labeling people.

Slide two- you think this is a good article.
Funny I do all mentioned above and I am poor period. I also know some people that are rich and also those this.
It's been said that the great middle class this country once had was just an anomoly in history. Now things are getting back to the way it has been through ages; the haves nad the have nots.
I feel like middle, only worse than the average middle class person.
I dont see based on this article how which way you lean poltically has anything to social class
Wow, I wouldn't have thought that the average middle class family would have $48,000 saved for each of their kid's college education by the time they graduated high school. Anyone else think that figure seems high? Most middle class people I know, even at the higher ends, don't have that much saved for sure.
