and proud? My brothers from another socialist mother hmu ??

I consider myself the working class, and I guess I would say I'm proud of it.

There's a certain #aesthetic that goes along with it too, are you a part of that?

#dreadthread I'm not defining any of this shit for you, sorrynotsorry chrismen

ALSO, is working class about your #job, or your #income? I think it's more about the job.

does it count as working class when you cant find work, have no health insurance, and are facing a potential eviction?

I'm like the middle class if the middle class was in danger of being evicted all the time.


I am sworn to war against the working class, btw.

I dunno. I just know that when I do work, it's not at a plant or in construction, so I'm like the lower-middle class or something.

I worked a white collar office job in midtown and my next job will likely be like that too. However regardless of income I don't fit into the rich people cultural bubble in this country and I don't want to so call that working class pride.

yeah lower-middle is p much where my family has been my whole life. we've never lived in "poverty" and never truly went hungry or anything like that but we've always lived paycheck to paycheck and go through the occasional really rough patch like right now.

that's not much different than working people that are forced to have it but cant afford to use it. sounds like a win for obamas redistribution plan.

I'm definitely working class but I'm not proud or not not proud either. It's just something idk.

I'd like to not work forever but I'm not ashamed of it either.

I'm not sure. I'm a student, but I also work part time to support myself. I made about 35k last year and will probably make around 25k this year, so economically I am working class, but I rent in an upper middle class neighborhood in an expensive city, but I can only do that because we're cramming 5 people in a 3 bed townhouse. I don't identify as working class, but maybe I am who knows LOL

me & my family work the capital that we own
i don't know why i feel so dry
#27
i grew up on a housing estate and my parents were both what you would call blue collar workers so yes

having said that i feel i've had a reasonably privileged existence just without some of the security and luxury afforded by my middle class counter parts

Work two jobs earnings about $2600 in gross per month. My fiance grosses about $4000, sometimes more or less. We live comfortably, but certainly not in excess. Its not fun being working class, working 55 hours a week to get a little comfort
#29
nah, im a student and my parents don't have working class jobs


with that being said, i've went to high school in a small town with a strong workers tradition, one of the strongest in slovenia even, because it used to be home to the second largest mercury mine in the world. working class aesthetic to me means a strong leftist tradition and the remnants of grassroots socialist organization - theaters ran by students and working class people, self-organized literary circles and groups, worker's brass bands and festivals, etc. also the local industry having a lot of support and say in matters, for instance our prom was largely funded and supported by the largest mech company in town and for that reason a very large number of my peers were interested in mechanical engineering, electronics and such. this also means that public life can be very political, where you see people discussing a lot of politics in public spaces like cafés and pubs and a strong punk (and to an extent metal) scene which had very strong ties to the working class throughout the 20th century.

No, I am not.
My parents grew up working class, but I grew up like middle-to-upper(-middle?) class.
I am probably gonna end up being like middle or lower-middle class, but right now I am still a student lol.

I'd say I'm upper-middle class and I have probably just marginally above working class income? Even when I rank up I probably won't be able to buy a house for years, and even then I'd need a partner who had a similar or better wage.

My job title sounds hot (Strategic Development Unit, Performance and Intelligence Officer) but the income is around 16,500 UK. I could probably move up to 18-20 in the next year or something at a push?

Yeah I'm on like 18k a year which isn't a lot at all. Hoping for a pay rise too. However my parents have a nice house, I'm well educated and had a comfortable upbringing so that's why I'd be cultural middle class.

I think that's the case for a whole bunch of people nowadays.

Culturally middle/upper-middle class.

Financially, a student. One side of the family is middle class. The other is working. Both sides are culturally working class.

The area I grew up used to be the area where all the country's coal mining was done. Now essentially the "poorest" area, still as a result of all the mines closing in the seventies. I think like 100,000 jobs depended on it, or something. It had an impact on the mentality of the people for quite some time, but I think that mentality has been more or less replaced by the "normal" mentality in the country/surrounding areas at this point.

The worst part of any mining industry isn't the pollution or fossil fuel dependence, it's the incessant bawwing when they close.

So time to be snobby and point out that upper-middle class in the UK is actually the rich class, upper class is when you're aristocracy. The majority of people will fall into lower-middle (ie white collar jobs of varying quality) to working class.

My family are culturally middle class, but hold working class jobs. I'm probably the first to fall into the middle class bracket in terms of both job and cultural upbringing.

And I still think the "new" classes that were introduced are far more descriptive and usual than this 3 class crap.
