My family is like this in a way, than again the whole Puerto Rican "middle class" (we don't even use this term much; in PR we use the term "working class" kinda widely/loosely and yet exclude the unemployed/welfare recipients yet include the petit-bourgeois. The media/political use of the term in the island is interesting, the rhetoric in the island usually puts this "working class" in opposition to both the rich and the people on welfare.) complains about the unemployed/welfare recipients.
Often these "blue" workers support reactionary policies; they complain about the "lazy" unemployed
But they tend to support progressive views. Than again, the issue of US welfare in PR is complex because it's also seen as an instrument of imperialist domination from the US by certain people on the island.
