I get paid weekly and I live in rented accomodation.
The only sure way to ensure your place in the owning class is to choose your parents carefully.
RICH HALL, a US stand-up comic, explained: when you go to work in the morning, if your name is on the front of the building, you're upper class; if your name is on your desk, you're middle class; and if your name is on your shirt, you're working class.
I grew up living in council houses, I went to the local comprehensive and now I am a groundworker for a building firm.
THE difference between the classes is in their relationship with society's institutions.
The working classes do what the system sets out for them.
The middle classes invent, operate and belong to the system.
The upper classes tolerate the system but know the right people to speak to if they feel the need to bypass any part of it.
The underclass (often overlooked) don't have any relationship with the system at all.
Similarly, for example, working-class attitudes on school are: "Keep your head down and your mouth shut - if they don't notice you, then you can't get into trouble." Middle class on school: "Your school is there to help you learn, and teachers are there to answer your questions." Upper class on school: "It's a pity you have to spend your time with second-rate people but you'll get the real lessons of life here, when you come home for the hols." THE last two of these three terms are confusing.
The important division is between working class and owning class.
Members of the owning class own enough so that they do not have to work to stay alive, while members of the working class have to sell their work to survive.
