The 99 Percent

A New York Times-CBS News poll finds that 15 percent of the population consider themselves “upper middle class.” (Question 94) That same survey finds 16 percent report household incomes above $100,000 annually. I suspect there is a high correlation between the two groups.

The six‐​figure income must make it easier to cope with being oppressed by the 1 percent.
