"never...afford college"

Maybe not afford to go to an expensive school, but I'm sure he could afford, like thousands of other low-middle class students, to go to much less expensive state college. Like I did.

If the story is to be believed, he couldn't even afford JC without help.

low-middle class students
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Why is it assumed that he was “low-middle class”. In the movie he was a steel worker. Isn't that union work with union wages and benefits?

While he may have come from **culturally** lower-middle class family, I did not get the impression that he and his parents were **financially** lower middle class.
