My family used to be in the middle-class right up until around 2007, then the rug was pulled out from under us. We are struggling now just as much or more than we did when we were in our 20's and just starting out on our own. The deck is stacked against us with little hope for improvement. We're just trying hard to hold on to what we have and still watching it slip away a little at a time.
It is frustrating as hell to see the politicians say the middle class earnes up to $250,000 and to know they believe the bile they are spewing from their pompous mouths. They will keep eroding our United States until there is no more middle-class -at least not in the old fashioned traditional sense.
How about the Dollar Store because as a middle class citizen that's how much I can afford these days. Everything keeps going up except my salary.
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

[BRIEFING.COM] A solid November employment report translated into a solid day of gains for the major averages. While there was some talk that the encouraging job growth raised the odds of the Fed announcing a tapering at its December meeting, the message of the markets today was either that it didn't believe there would be a tapering this month or that it doesn't fear a tapering this month.
It was just one day, yet there was ample meaning wrapped up in the connection that the 10-yr ... More
