However, when New York Times conducted a study they found that class is very relevant in shaping people's education, income, lifestyle and beliefs and they are not as fluid as we believe them to be. The book is an interesting collection of stories from people representing different classes in America from the rich Northeastern WASPS who own their own islands to illegal immigrants working night shifts at diners for low wages and no opportunities.

Some ppl may take longer to rise than others but eventually where theres a will theres a way. At least their nxt gen cud B in better condition , thanx to their perseverance Smile

Interesting topic. One of the books I have placed in my bathroom library is a collection of New York Times editorial articles called "Class Matters". The premise of the book is that people in USA believe that this is the land of opportunity. People can achieve anything with hard work, and that class structure is not rigid.
