For some reason that’s a common assumption nowadays, typically amongst young people who were taught that any disagreement is evil.

If you think you have “triggered” me, you’re very wrong. Picture me laughing as you read my posts. While I’m not actually laughing, it is much closer to what you’d see if we were having this discussion in person.

It seems that I have triggered you.

Because “I triggered you” is a typical millennial response to any disagreement. You can’t discuss any topic with them which might lead to even the slightest difference of opinion without being labeled as “triggered”.

Anyway, being a 70’s/80’s kid myself, the only way to trigger me is to leverage physical force against me or someone I love. I don’t care about most people enough for their opinions to elicit much more than a chuckle.

Staten Island is the wealthiest borough by household income according to recent information. Large part of this is due to two things: high levels of home ownership, and large number of uniformed NYC civil servants and other municipal workers making very good livings. That and many are married to other "blue collar" workers (such as nurses) who also earn.

That's fine. But they still may be working class people.

*sigh*

Again with this; class structures are constructs. It doesn't matter what you call someone, nor has it in decades.

As myself and others have pointed out numerous times throughout this tread many of those you people call "working class" could buy and sell half (or more) of the people posting on this forum ten times over, and still get back change.

Go out to large parts of SI, certain places in Brooklyn, Queens and Bronx, and you'll find plenty of "working class" households that *own* (not rent) their home or homes, have two or more rides (largely all paid for), kids in private schools, etc.... You don't see them here moaning and obsessing about "affordable" housing lotteries and other hand outs do you?

Some of you seem to have latched onto "working class" to equal working poor, they aren't the same thing at all.

I've read somewhere that nurses are considered 'pink collar' or even white, rather than blue collar.
