If you read Dharma Sastra books you can see Gruhastha has to work for
couple of hours per day to maintain his family. He has to earn only
enough wealth for maintenance of family and others like Sannyasis
depending on him and not more. But nowadays people want to earn more
and more and are not satisfied. How can they get Mumukshutva?

How many rich people you know are like Buddha and renouncing wealth?
99.9999% of them are greedy and want more and more. They avoid taxes
very cleverly even if they are rich. They are in a mad race to get
richer and richer all the time. The material desires are never ending.
How can they get Mumukshutva?

The very poor people are also thinking of small material possessions
and dreaming of becoming rich one day. They are struggling to get
daily minimum needs. How can they get Mumukshutva?

The middle class is the best class because they have enough comforts
for daily life. They don't have to dream of becoming rich. They can
get Mumukshutva more easily than the other two.
