Better definition?[edit]

The definition given here, about being "between the working class and the upper class" is problematic. It implies that the middle class does not work, which is not true. For industrial societies it really consists of "labour aristocracy, professionals and white collar workers", as mentioned in the Wikipedia. The Wikipedia article [1] discusses how the definition can depend on historic period, society, etc. I suggest instead the following:

"The class of people in the middle of a societal hierarchy."

I don't see where you read that the middle class does not work. The "upper class" also works. "working class" has a specific meaning, and not just "the class that works" (wikipedia). --Kip 19:39, 3 September 2012 (CEST)

The German definition mentions Unterklasse und Oberklasse. So in English, it may be better to say

"A social and economic class lying between the lower and upper classes."
