This election year, the economic focus seems to be on the "middle class". Strange, because if you really think about it, the middle class is really several "classes" in and of itself. Where do you fall in the U.S. social class rankings and WHICH middle class are all the pundits referring to?
How do you fit into the income/social class in the United States?
Upper (old money/privileged upbringing/ivy league school)
Upper-Middle (Higher degree than a BA/BS)
Middle (white collar professional degree)
Traditional Middle (working - blue/pink collar -4 year college degree)
Working (no college degree)
Poor (HS, GED)
I consider myself in the traditional middle class.
