  • I think everyone's still thinking about this question, lol I do think there is. I work in the public sector and I can tell you I'm so much more fortunate than so many people. I think the question we need to ask is “What is Middle Class?” Is it, what you own, ie. home, cars etc., how much money you make in your demographic area? Hard to say anymore.

  • Are you from Ky? The reason I ask is because that's where I grew up. If I took what I own here, made the same money in Ky. that I make here I'd look pretty damn good, lol

  • I think the middle class as we knew it even 5 years ago is dwindling.

  • It is dwindling with th loss of well-paid manufacturing jobs and the growth in the income and wealth gaps between th rich and the rest .

  • What is considered middle class? So many define it differently and middle class in California will be different than middle class in Kansas.
