I voted other. Right now, we're poor. We live on $8000 per year income and student loans, and get medicaid and foodstamps and other state assistance.
On the other hand, we're graduating this year. I'll be an attorney, even though I'll probably be a broke public interest attorney, and my husband is a medical lab monkey, so we can expect to command a high-middle to upper-class income. On the other hand, we'll have 6 figure student loan debt, which I figure makes us pretty much middle class.
I also have always considered class to encompass not only how much money you make but a whole lot of other behaviors attached to how you view the world. In that sense, we're both pretty upper class people. We're frugal and we don't spend a lot of money, but we have upper class ideas about how to live -- travel, investments, risk-taking, making choices, even the books we read, films we watch, and food we eat reflect upper-middle or upper class choices, even though we don't have a lot of money. And I'm pretty sure a lot of people here at MDC are in a similar position... montessori, natural parenting, and whole/organic foods aren't exactly low-class, you know?
