Others have the opportunity to be middle class, but simply don't want to bother. People seem to forget that there are a lot of kids that would rather just keep a dead end job in fast food for the rest of their lives. I wouldn't recommend it, but I have seen it first hand plenty of times. Still others place value on different things.

 Being poor is almost always a choice. I say almost always because some people are either born with physical mental deficiencies or who have had brain injuries that limit their abilities to succeed past a certain point. Then again, there are plenty of people with mental deficiencies who defy the odds and succeed while others with very high IQs fail.not within the desire of a person to be born into a rich or poor family. Being born to a poor household is simply destiny, one has to accept his fate whatsoever.However, one can still work his way out of poverty by sheer hard work, diligence and of course love for his work.Remaining poor throughout life is nothing but a choice. This is rightly reflected by a famous quote by Bill Gates :"If you are born poor its not your mistake, But if you die poor its your mistake.”
