"The Upper Class and The Lower Class" ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
Today, concepts of social class often assume three general categories: a very wealthy and powerful upper class that owns and controls the means of production; a middle class of professional workers, small business owners and low-level managers; and a lower class, who rely on low-paying wage jobs for their livelihood and often experience poverty .
The division between upper and lower middle class is clearly visible in every society, whether of a developed or a developing country.
Those in the upper class are assumed to 'just sit' and do 'nothing' while their money works for them. All they do is tap away on their gadgets (laptops, pads, tabs etc) and the money comes rushing into their accounts. They employ bodyguards from the lower echelon to protect their lives and properties. (the body guard is seen standing at all times)
Those in the lower strata have to wake up early and they are seen scurring about trying to meet stringent deadlines and demands to make stipends that barely keep body and soul together.
