South Africans shared unpopular experiences with money. Those who are earning more are broke, and those who are earning less are leaving like millionaires.

@financially.fabulous uploaded a TikTok video explaining how that is so. The woman replied to a clip about the middle-class compromising of a household that earns between R40k to R70k per month.

She said the middle class is not really about the income earned but about the mindset. She said in her line of work, she has worked with people who made R25k but left off R17k, and she has worked with people who earned R80k and left off R77k and are broke.
