Instiz: Average life of our country’s middle class

– I’m from a middle class family and my education cost was 2~3 time more than that…

– The thing on overseas vacation is correct because I can save up and travel overseas whenever I want but for my parents, they have to work so it’s hard for them to have an overseas trip…

– The 102m² apartment depends on the region

– So you’re a rich-class if you earn more than $5630? Doesn’t feel like it
