The middle class feels pretty darn dead. Most decent paying salaries are offset by ridiculously high university costs, crippling student loan debt, rising property taxes, and a cost of living that outpaces the salaries companies offer their employees.
But that's not to say I'm not enjoying being middle class a heck of a lot more than when I was poor. I may not have the money to ever own property or buy a brand new luxury car outright, but hey, I can treat a few of my friends to a full meal at Panera. And isn't that what counts?
So if you, or someone you know, are a self-identified member of the American middle class, these memes will be painfully relevant.
