    What is the income bracket for poverty, working poor and middle class???????

    Public Aid sure got a way of things and kept changing all the time about who gets what and who doesnt.[​IMG]

    US Poverty level is an income of $12,500 or lowe. $12,501 all the way up to $99,999 is middle class. Yeah I know, what a joke right?

    My husband says Poverty level is what happens when I go fabric shopping.

    Other than that, I always thought the poverty level was more, but maybe that depends on the number in the household.

    I think it depends on where you live 40000 a year can be a bunch of money in certain parts of the country.

    From what I know, it sounds like per person but I could be wrong until Debra specify what the ratio single or family income.

    Been trying to surf the web on that but nothing really clear or they are too vague.
