An endangered species without any protection.

They work for a living, buy food with money they earn; try to enjoy some recreation. Unlike the wealthy they have no advocates. Unlike the self-proclaimed oppressed, they have no advocates. They work so they can't get Medicaid - and they don't earn enough to pay for medical insurance. If they have legal problems they must spend much of their earnings on legal council because Legal Aid and other such organizations won't give them the time of day (except when they want donations) - neither have they enough money to buy their way out of trouble, either.

Ultimately, they're the ones who pay for everything for everyone else.

Other dictionary definitions that should exist for the middle class:
Economic Cannon Fodder
Working Class Lemmings
&etc.

(feeling a bit cynical today).

"If you are searching for perfection in others, then you seek disappointment. If you seek perfection in yourself, then you will find failure." - Balboos HaGadol Mar 2010
