I was raised middle class on less than $25/hour, in fact much less when my parents were starting out, and I never considered us poor. Of course my parents' economical choices sometimes appeared less than cool to my peers, and I resented it at the time, but in hindsight I admire them for it. I realized later on that the kids who were getting expensive brand name clothes and all the lasted toys were actually poorer than us - and that was part of the reason. We always had healthy food, clean clothes and a reasonably well kept home. I don't know what else constitutes a middle class upbringing.
