What on earth does 'the average class is poorer' mean?!
Does "middle class" mean the same thing in Portuguese that it does in English? Those who are not rich, but also those who are not poverty stricken?
obrigada, JonnRauber. :)
Is it more common to use ser or estar with pobre?
The person is poor - A pessoa é (verb ser) pobre
Today, i am poor - Hoje, eu estou (verb estar) pobre
