Are you middle class? Depends where you live in NJ

September 20, 2018

The overall average in New Jersey for what is considered to be middle class income for a family of four is between $60,000 and $177,000 a year.

According to Rutgers University economist James Hughes, “middle class” can mean many things these days. But “somebody earning $60,000 in New Jersey would really be struggling to say they’re in the middle class.”
