Social classes in the USA

Social classes in the USA are groups of people with similar social status, level of material well-being, education.

Although the division into social classes is very arbitrary, nevertheless, in reality, no one doubts the stratification of the US population (as well as the whole world) into various class categories.

There are a number of models for dividing US society into classes. The simplest of them is the division of people into “rich”, “average” and “poor”, but in reality, of course, everything is much more complicated.

Below are the most popular academic models for dividing US society into social classes today.

US Social Class Models
Model Dennis Gilbert Model by William Thompson and Joseph Hickey Model Leonard Bigley
class name Typical representatives class name Typical representatives class name Typical representatives
Capitalists (about 1% of the US population) Top managers of the highest level; high-level policies; people who inherited large fortunes. As a rule, graduates of the Ivy League. Upper class (about 1% of the US population) Top managers of the highest level; celebrities; people who inherited large fortunes. As a rule, graduates of the Ivy League. Income over $500,000 per year. The very rich (about 1% of the US population) Multimillionaires whose incomes typically exceed $350,000 per year; celebrities and major leaders or politicians. As a rule, graduates of the Ivy League.
Upper middle class (about 15% of the US population) As a rule, employees with higher education, specialists and middle managers with a high level of independence in work. Upper middle class (about 15% of the US population) Specialists and managers with higher education. Income over $100,000 per year. Rich (about 5% of the US population) Having a capital of 1,000,000 US dollars or more. As a rule, they have higher education.
Lower middle class (about 30% of the US population) Entry-level specialists and highly skilled workers with an average standard of living. “White collars”. Many have higher education. Lower middle class (about 32% of the US population) Entry-level specialists and highly skilled workers with some level of autonomy in their work. Income from 35,000 to 75,000 US dollars per year. Many have higher education. Middle class (about 46% of the US population) Highly educated workers with above-average incomes (men earn about $57,000 a year, women about $40,000 a year).
Working class (about 30% of the US population) Workers and clerks whose work does not require high qualifications. “Blue Collars”. They have a secondary education. Working class (about 32% of the US population) Workers and clerks of average qualification. Income from 16,000 to 30,000 US dollars per year. They have a secondary education. Working class (40 – 45% of the US population) Low-skilled workers with low incomes (men earn about $40,000 a year, women about $26,000 a year). They have a secondary education.
The working poor (about 13% of the US population) Unskilled workers and clerks. Characterized by high economic instability and the risk of poverty. Some have secondary education. Lower class (14 – 20% of the US population) Working in low-paying jobs or living on government subsidies. Some have secondary education. Poor (about 12% of the US population) Living below the poverty line, unemployed or underemployed. The income level is low (about $18,000 per year per family). Some have secondary education.
Lower class (about 12% of the US population) Unemployed or underemployed. living on government subsidies. Some have secondary education.

It is obvious that in all models there is a dependence of belonging to a particular class on the level of education. Indeed, in the United States (as in many other countries), a higher level of education (and practical skills) is likely to lead to higher income levels.
