The Social Psychology of Class and Classism
Lott, Bernice
American Psychologist, v67 n8 p650-658 Nov 2012
In the United States, one is born into a family that can be identified as working class, middle class, or affluent--divisions that denote status and power, as defined by access to resources. This article explores the relationships between social class membership and a wide array of personal and social daily life experiences. It concludes with a discussion of classism, which contributes to diminished opportunities for low-income families.
