after someone claimed that UG was full of middle class white kids, i decided to take the time and make a poll to set things straight!

EDIT: i put 4 options by mistake, hence the lower middle thing lol

BTW: this is a british interpretation, not sure how other countries really define it. to be fair, i'm still not sure how you really define it

I couldn't decide on Working or Upper Working so I just chose Working. Poor me Its a bitch to be poor in this world, can't buy anything you need easily (music wise) Especially if your in a band and you practice at a rehearsal studio every week.

I just chose working, but bearing in mind that I am still wealthier than many people who are considered rich in less developed contries, it's hard to decide here.

Working Class- council house fodder here. So by global standards I'm rich as ****- clean water and everything.

EDIT: I don't see how anyone with a home computer can call themselves "poor"

That's a good song, and I'd say my family's middle class, maybe upper middle class.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

it's quite interesting to see that, looking from the results, guitar players are better off than most!
#31
My family is middle class, but I myself am poor, being a college student and all.
#32
I find alot of buskers are actually middle/upper class University students who are too lazy and "individual" to get a proper part time job.
#34
hahahaha, all the kids who live at their parents and think they are 'middle class' will be downgrading as soon as they need to find a job methinks lol!

dunno why, but croatian society tends to be very conservative about revealing yourself on the streets and doing something for money, even if its artistic and creative.
ppl do it here only if they`re rly out of money or need some extra or don`t have time for a regular job because of school or busy life. too many ORs lol. ORly? :P
#37
I'm working class. My mom made the decision to become a teacher, and I don't have a dad. But I consider myself lucky compared to people in other countries, I have clean water and enough food and electricity. Working class isn't so bad, though.
#39
middle class asian

why most of UG will be middle class:
1. guitar is an expensive hobby
2. you're using a computer + internet a lot
3. you need to find typing and reading fun (educated)
