After alot of research on this issue that has many, many claiming to be experts etc and including government data as well.... Here is my conglomeration of all that information a researched into what I believe are the income classes in the U.S.

Lower Class/Poor: $0 - $22,000

Lower Middle Class: $22,000 - $45,500

Middle Class: $45,500 - $117,450

Upper Middle Class: $117,450 - $500,000

Lower Upper Class: $500,000 - $3,000,000

Upper Class: $3,000,000 - $25,000,000

Super Rich: $25,000,000+

It also seems the Lower Middle Class and the Lower Upper Class are the most disgruntled. Where do you guys fall.

Middle class for my country. Probably middle class for the states as well. The second I move out I'll be poor though.

that is a different way to split classes into then im used to.
Im more used to the jobb based thing:

Lower class
porr, un-employed, perma sick, etc etc

Working class
Ppl who work at grunt jobs.
Factory workers, assistent nurses

Middle class.
With a basic "collage" university degre work
computer sience, nurses, ingeneirs etc etc. <- god what bad spelling

High class
Doctors, VD etc etc

Adel/royalty
u know, those ppl.

By this mesurment im middle class. but by ur version, im lower class.

I'd probably be middle class for my area, but it's fairly rural and the cost of living isn't that high.

Back half of 2012 to the beginning of 2014 I was lower middle class, but barely, back half of '14 till now I'm reaching the ceiling of the "working poor", mainly because of I needed to reduce my hours to cram in necessary classes I needed for graduation this past May from University. I'm searching for work now, mainly federal government jobs, most of the ones I'm qualified for, their salary alone would put me in lower middle class, but I intend to keep my present job at its current hours during the weekend and do whatever job I can hopefully get by way of a federal job, which would put me into middle class. Basically I'd have to carry two jobs just to qualify as middle class with a College education.

Lower Class/ Poor

I'm on disability and only get 8,000$ a year.
And almost all of that goes towards school.

That sounds like a story? Do tell how your family got out of it?

What did you had for lunch? Did you split a bag of potato chips? That's just too sad

Yeah I think I've alluded to it before but I was born and raised very, very poor. My parents couldn't find steady work, and especially when I was born, we were living off selling things just to get a next meal.

When we had $1, I was a teen. It was a rough summer, both my parents weren't working. We went week by week with basically little to no money, just unemployment checks. All our meals were shared and dived out so we could save enough for us to eat, and we ate the same thing everyday, a habit I still have.

I didnt have a TV growing up, and we had our lights shut a few times. I was always the kid wearing hand me downs, my siblings too. We had to just tough it out.

Both my parents worked hard to get work, and are not anywhere near this sort of situation anymore, but yeah there were some bad times.
