Over 28 seasons and 597 episodes of The Simpsons, Homer Simpson has held a ton of jobs. The occasional Simpson’s watcher may only know of his job at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, but the actual total number of jobs that Homer has held is well over 100. Homer’s Wikipedia pages says that at the 400 episode mark, the patriarch of the Simpson’s had 188 different occupations.
But what has all of that work amounted to? His career moves weren’t always lateral, but after 28 seasons Homer is kind of right where he started. Just like the squeeze that is happening in the real American middle class.
A new video released by Vox attempts to analyze his income over the years and does a pretty decent job with it, pointing out the Homer really is the average American – firmly seated in the upper lower middle class.
