Middle Class Photo Project

Picture This: The Middle Class

Marketplace Contributor May 31, 2012

We spend a lot of time talking about the middle class. What it is, who’s part of it, why it matters. Now it’s time for you to tell us – and show us too! Marketplace’s Wealth and Poverty Desk wants you to use a photo to show us what the middle class means to you.

Is it the first house you lived in after you graduated college? Is it a pair of designer shoes you hope to own one day? Is it a moment from the last vacation you took with your family? Anything goes.

After you upload your photo, take a moment to see what the middle class means to others.



We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
