People in similar social positions are aware of each other and get information regarding their contemporaries from the cars they drive, clothing, the neighbourhood they live in, and the type of job that they do.
To come up with a model of social class, one could use occupation, education, and income based terms to divide the various social classes. Using a model following these markers, we have the upper class, upper middle class, lower middle class, working class, and the poor. Those with institutional leadership, foundation leaders, University heads and International Corporation heads will represent the upper class (Levine, 2010). The capitalist elite are also in this level and include those who own bonds, stocks, lands, as well as other assets. This class derives its wealth from the assets that they own. However, those who have acquired vast sums of money in recent times take longer to be allowed into the old money club. The upper-middle class is represented by those with technical and scientific knowledge like architects, lawyers, engineers, and directors of private and public organizations. In developed countries, this is the largest class of people, and they are well educated (Levine, 2010). This group is hard to define as they are about more than just the resources, lifestyle, and income that this model is created around.
The lower middle class includes those persons who provide support for other professionals, administrative clerics, those who collect data and keep records, as well as paralegals, sales people, bank tellers, and blue-collar workers who work in skilled trades. These individuals have some college education (Levine, 2010). The working class includes deliverymen, garage workers, and staff at nursing homes, restaurant workers, factory labourers, and craft workers. They have moderate education. Finally, the poor are those who either work full time for wages that fall below a dollar a day,
