According to these What class do you and your family belong to? (poll on the way)
( can be combined earnings )


Upper class,
(ca. 1%-5%) individuals with considerable power over the nation's economic and political institutions. This group owns a disproportionate share of the nation's resources. The top 1% had incomes exceeding $250,000 with the top 5% having household incomes exceeding $140,000. This group features strong group solidarity and is largely constituted by the heirs to multi-generational fortunes. Prominent government officials, CEOs and successful entrepreneurs are among the upper class even if not of elite background.

Upper middle class, (ca. 15%) white collar professionals with advanced post-secondary education such as physicians, professors, lawyers, corporate executives, and other management. While households commonly have six figure incomes in this group, the majority of income earners do not. Only 6% of persons had six figure incomes while 15% were upper middle class. While high educational attainment commonly serves as the staple mark of this group, entrepreneurs and business owners may also be upper middle class even if lacking advanced educational attainment.

Lower middle class,
(ca. 33%) individuals who worked their way through college and commonly have a Bachelor's degree or some college education. School teachers, sales-employees and lower to mid level supervisors rank among those in this particular group. Household income is generally in the range of $30,000 to $75,000. Workers in this group are mostly white collar but have less autonomy in their work than do upper middle class professionals. Members of this class often attempt to emulate those in the two higher classes and have recently become overly indebted by their desire to have a comfortable lifestyle.

Working class,
(ca. 30%) individuals who occupy both blue and white collar occupations. Pink collar workers in predominantly female clerical positions are common in this class. Job security tends to be low for this group and unemployment as well as losing health insurance remain potent economic threats. Household incomes typically range from $16,000 to $30,000.

Lower class
, repeated cycles of unemployment, working multiple low-level part-time jobs are common among this group. Many families fall below the poverty line from time to time when employment opportunities are scarce.

If going off earnings, upper middle class. Going off upbringing, reality and ancestry, working class.

According to your definitions, I'm somewhere in the middle class. Don't know the precise income of my family, especially not in dollars, so I can't place myself too well. Why d'you care?
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

I'm not sure if i'm Working or Lower Middle because those descriptions were pretty damn awful, going on income i'd say lower middle, going on where we live etc. i'd say working.

upper-class. (mom/step dad both in politics and dad/step mom have good paying jobs [federal mail contract driver and an office manager for an established law firm])

however, my dad/step mom live in a middle-class lifestyle, and my mom/stepdad live a middle/upper middle-class lifetyle. both my parents are big on saving money, and there is no need to flaunt anything.
#28
Hard to say.
My mum works at a playschool, we rent our house, from a working class background.
But my Dads a lawyer...yet he left school at 15 and his family were all working class.
He's not loaded though, and i havn't a clue what that makes me.

Working class by that definition. I would probably, and somewhat awkwardly, call myself middle class though, because I've had the opportunity to go through uni, and broadly speaking I tend to have more middle class interests, compared to your stereotypical view of the working classes.
