This term refers to a demographic group but it's definition differs from country to country.In the US this group includes the vast majority of Americans,"( All Americans not on welfare or members of a tiny upper class).In Western Europe this group is essentially made up of white collar and professional individuals.The shrinking middle class in the US has resulted primarily from falling employment amongst blue collar workers who are considered working class in other countries but middle class in the US.

Everyone who works and pays taxes is middle class. There has been no such thing as "working class" since the 1970s with the end of mass labour industries such as coal mining and steel.

The other classes are underclass/scum (long term unemployable) and upper class (too rich to need to work).
Kevin empties bins for the council and his wife Sharon is a school dinner lady. They own their own house, take two foreign holidays per year (sun and skiing) and own two cars. They are middle class who work, not working class.

The biggest class of fucking morons (In UK anyway) well known for sitting on 'chav' websites playing the role of keyboard hereos. Look down and are jealous of the working-class. Most of them sniff coke and act as if butter wouldn't melt in their mouth, most of the time it's these who get found out for child abusing and running child abusing websites. Always give birth to tax dodging weedy students.

Financially the largest class. All the main money makers. At the bottom are those in well paid jobs, at the top are multi-millionaires working huge amounts who will become new money
Middle classes in western nations have more money than the upper classes when combined, and more than the lower classes.

A living standard some 75% of Americans think they’re at, but it’s a relevant term. In terms of income, some are college educated people with professional white-collar jobs that are single that live in simple one bedroom apartments, but many tradesman that barely finished high school that have families live in a comfortable home in the suburbs, but can’t afford much more than a mortgage and enough food to eat. And you have union tradesmen making more money than accountants and engineers, but most of them don’t live at the same level because of their mentality. In reality, the middle class are college-educated, work white-collar occupations above a secretary or bank clerk, but not physicians or attorney’s, live in a tract home in the suburbs, two cars usually at least one an SUV or Minivan, have a pedigree dog, favorite restaurants are Starbucks, Red Robin, or Chili’s, their kids are highly monitored and in at least one extracuricular activity, their church is usually anything but Roman Catholic, Hardshell Baptist, or Pentecostal, and vacations at least once a year, usually places like Disney World. Many living in mountain climates enjoy skiing or snowboarding in their leisure time and coastal climates the beach.
They are a middle class family. He’s a project manager and his wife a school teacher. Their kids all get good grades and enrolled in soccer. Their home is a two story 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath with a playroom and over 3,000 square feet.
