I'm not sure of the difference between working class and middle class in the US. I mean, I hear politicians talking about the middle class and I'm thinking that they mean just regular people too. And I know that they would be considered just working class in the UK. Do people here not like to be called working class and want be labeled middle class?. I hope it's not a naive question. Sometime I just get the feeling that people, in say low paid jobs without even health care may still consider themselves middle class. Someone please explain, I know this could be a complicated issue.
