Wow, I am surprised by some of the answers.
I would think it certainly depends on where you live
how you would classify yourself by income.
$30k yearly in a rural community would not go very far in Chicago.

yep taxing the rich will probably negatively affect jobs because after all they can't stop taking expensive vacations, eating out, buying iphones and nice cars or having the best to wear hey lets be fair, they have to save money somewhere if they have to pay more taxes.

I consider my self rich and happy. The way I look at rich ,is how you feel about yourself inside and out. Regardless of what anybody else say, as long as I believe that I am RICH than I am!

I would say upper middle class. The payroll taxes will affect us however because everyone who pays SS is going to get a 2% increase in their deductions and who knows how much Obamacare is going to cost.

Sadly, I work full-time plus a part time business and I still only make just above the poverty line.   :crybaby2:

I was lying in bed the other night, looking up at the stars, and thinking, "Where in the heck is my roof?"

I would use the following classificatonis for classes and ranges/descriptions:

Poor  =  Does not work or receive unemployment benefits, no large amount of savings available
Working Poor  = working but only making minimum wage or slightly above
Working Class  =  working a blue-collar or service type job with at the max earning 2-3 times minimum wage
Middle Class  =  has a good paying job at least 2-3 times minimum wage, can save some money, buy some things, take a vacation.  I think a lot of really woring class people group themselves in the midde class group.
Upper Middle Class =  making a large salary near or abour $100,000 a year with benefits
Rich =  making a very large salary of $250,000 a year or more
Ubber Rich  =  making several million a year
