Castes of the West

Fine breakdown of the social strata.
By my use of the word strata, you could place me presently, but you’d be erroneous to trace my background (hint: dirt poor). That is the problem with these structures, no account of mobility (trajectory upward or bankrupted).
I would like to make a distinction between rich and wealthy.
The rich need to work. That’s it.
