The Upper Middle Class doesn't start at $60,000 household income. $60k per family is squarely middle class.

The upper middle class is better described as the professional or managerial class, and consists of mostly white collared professionals or successful small business owners. Typical professions in the upper middle class are biglaw lawyers, physicians, dentists, accountants, consultants, school principals, and engineers with managerial roles. Many have advanced degrees beyond college.

They tend to live in cities during their 20s, marry in their late 20s or early 30s, and move to wealthy suburbs with good school districts (education is highly valued) when the kids come. The political affiliations of the upper middle class vary greatly with age and region in the country.

Household incomes vary from $100k to $500k. Most upper middle class families still depend on salary and their day job to sustain their lifestyle.
In America, the poor thinks they are in the middle class and the middle class thinks they're in the upper-middle class, while the upper middle class thinks they're typical middle class Americans.

To have grown up upper-middle class or upper class. To be well bred and be respected and looked up to by the rest of the classes. To have good values and been blessed.

Upper middle class usually have at least one parent with a college degree and make over over 60,000 dollars a year. They usually live in the suburbs ( like I did ) and have many luxuries to enjoy.

Upper Middle Class usually have multiple cars, a very nice home and take many vacations. Vacations may be to the Bahamas or Europe. They give their kids whatever they want and the kids get to enjoy many opportunities the other classes don't have.

The Upper Middle Class doesn't start at $60,000 household income. Unless you live in Kansas or South Dakota, $60k per household doesn't get you very far in the typical metro area where most Americans live today. $60k per family is squarely middle class.

The upper middle class is better described as the Professional or Managerial Class, and consists of mostly white collared professionals or successful small business owners. Typical professions in the upper middle class are biglaw lawyers, physicians, dentists, accountants, consultants, school principals, and engineers with managerial roles.

The political affiliations of the upper middle class vary greatly with age and region in the country. Among the upper middle class, there is often a strong emphasis on education and getting into the right college for their children, to the point of obsession (see helicopter parents).

Household incomes vary from $100k to $500k. Most upper middle class families still depend on salary and their day job to sustain their lifestyle (hence they are not Upper Class which relies more on investment & rent income). The upper middle class are the heaviest taxed group in America (whereas those in the upper class have more of their income in capital gains, which has a lower tax rate).

The people who make plenty of money to support a comfortable lifestyle and don't have to worry as much about their jobs, economy, and other things that stress out the middle-class. Most people look up to the upper middle class because they tend to be the role model for what everyone in America wants to attain aka "The American Dream"...

People in society who make well above-average incomes that can afford a comfortable lifestyle. The upper-middle-class tend to be well educated and have a lot of work autonomy in whatever they do for a living. Most upper-middle-class tend to live in more upscale neighborhoods that are too expensive for their counterparts, the middle-class. Therefore, the middle-class and lower classes too, tend to look up to the upper-middle-class and follow in their footsteps.

Persons with a graduate degree, PhD, or professional degree, a household income of over $65k and more than $250k in net worth. This group is also often divided into the professional class and managerial class, as most persons in this group tend to be either professionals such as economists, political scientists, engineers, and post-secondary educators, or hold managerial positions in the corporate world. The division is made since persons belonging to the professional upper-middle class tend to be more liberal in their political beliefs and have more chic-urban tastes. Persons belonging to the managerial upper-middle class, on the other hand, tend to be more conservative in their political beliefs as well as their taste preferences.
