96. Middle income, not middle class.
Detroit auto workers were middle-income working class, not middle-class. Being working-class does not mean no upward social mobility, it does mean you have to sell your labor power to someone else. I think these are important concepts, and simply defining "class" along strict economic terms muddies the waters when we're speaking of power relationshipd.
