s, and the move to try and earn equal status for those classes in the lower category has always created conflict, because the classes on the top of the societal hierarchy do not give up their status easily, and thus they have to go down through a struggle (Marx n.p.). Similarly, is the concept that was later realized and discussed by Tabb’s, which he referred to as “race to the bottom”, which perceives the concept of globalization as a channel for advancing social stratification, to continuously create a society that has some category of people at the top, while the others are pushed to the very bottom of the social cadre (Tabbs, 151). This stratification is achieved through the interconnection of global corporate world, such that one organization is able to close its business in one country and shift the same to another country, where the cost of doing business is lower, through paying low wages to the labor force (Tabbs, 151).
The effect of such interconnection is that; the concept of globalization serves to advance the push of the labor force to the lowest levels of the social stratification hierarchy, through ensuring that they are forced to give in to concessions that are oppressive to them, just by the mere fact that should they refuse to give the concessions, then, the corporations for which they work will shift its business to another country (Tabbs, 154).
