I am wondering what everyone considers rich, poor or middleclass as far as finances go. I have often pondered this question through the years. I've met a few rich people(excluding bulti-billionaires), some middle class and a lot of poor people. What is rich? I would consider rich as those who do not have to work yet do. (I've never been that blessed myself) What is poor? I define the poor as those who are force to live in substandard conditions of any kind. What is middleclass? Isn't a middle class worker is one step away from poverty unless they have their own home paid for and some cash in the bank?
