If I were to meet a woman who made minimum wage it would not be a problem.
I don't care about her socio-economic status but rather what kind of person she was. My uncle is a Ph D in economics and used to earn 0,000/yr as a financial advisor for an oil company. Not only that, my uncle is Indian and she is white (Swiss) so it's an inter-race marriage.
Someone who is the same socio-economic status can make for a horrible mate and someone who makes nothing can be the best life partner ever.
My $0.02There were a couple of times I dated guys who I felt were way, way better than me, due to what their income was and what mine was.
One was a chief editor for a newspaper back in Calif and his salary was incredible...while I scrubbed toilets for a living (he actually was one of my customers when I had my homecleaning business).

Take it from me, it can be very hard to maintain a relationship where the two families are miles apart economically.
The economic part usually affects the education, class, and general way of doing things in life. I once dated the guy that worked at the gas station.
He made 1/18th of the money I did and we were just fine. He was romantic and thoughtful and really a lot of fun.
