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.
Humpph humpph, yes yes..
I didn’t see the movie, and assumed from comments by others that since he couldn’t afford to go to college, he was not middle-class. I have no idea what his parents made. Poor, middle-class, whatever, there were resources for him where he could have a higher education. He didn’t have to get an athletic scholarship to do it was my point.
