Yeah, I don't think anyone in this strip is omgcrazywealthy. The families we've seen look to be kinda upper-middle-class-ish.
I think Cyndi's family was supposed to be super-rich- T addressed it during the kidnapping.
Okay, so maybe one family is omgcrazywealthy. I 'unno.
Stan and Jack apparently have lived in the bad parts of town, so I'd say they're lower-middle/middle-middle class-ish. Aggie's living situation seems a little better than theirs, given that she apparently has her own credit card? (I can't find the strip right now, but she wears the same outfit as Penny just to embarrass her. Penny says, "How much money is in your 'humiliate Penny' budget?" Aggie responds with, "Let's see... What's my credit limit again?")
I would say Penny and Karen are about tied, above Aggie's level, but still not quite Cyndi's level.
Michelle has been painted as "the poor girl," which... I guess she's around Stan/Jack's level. As in, she is not poor, she's just not able to buy designer clothing whenever she wants.
(If T wants to make any corrections, he totally should.)
