So, how come the middle class are skint? Another sob story in The Mail.
Totting up what they’re spending I get to some £43 k a year. Yet earnings?
Granted, I have worked only part-time since becoming a mother, determined to spend as many hours as possible with my children, but my gross earnings have exceeded a respectable £30,000 most years
I don’t know anyone who works harder. He stays up until 1.30am most nights, leaves before 7am most days, and puts in more than 60 hours’ work every week.
Dillon’s pre-tax earnings are nudging £50,000,
Gross earnings of £80k a year then. Just on the verge of the top 10% of households by income then. You’d think they’d be doing alright really, even with three kinds.
Yet in terms of disposable income they’re skint. How come?
I’d run with the very vague idea, just a suspicion mind, that perhaps they’re being taxed too heavily?
