Taking into account the percentages provided in the six-class model by Gilbert, as well as the model of Thompson and Hickey, one can apply [[U.S. Census Bureau] statistics regarding income. According to these class models the lower middle class is located roughly between the 52nd and 84th percentile of society. In terms of personal income distribution in 2005, that would mean gross annual personal incomes from about $32,500 to $60,000.[21]

As 42% of all households, and the majority of those in the top 40%, had two income earners, household income figures would be significantly higher, ranging from roughly $50,000 to $100,000 annually.[13] In terms of educational attainment, 27% of persons had a Bachelor's degree or higher.
So..what was your dad's annual salary when you were, say, 10? Y'know, for comparison.

Also. That puts me squarely into the "poor as ****" class. And I don't qualify for, much less receive food stamps. You family didn't get food stamps because they DIDN"T ******* QUALIFY.
