Class action

The Great British class calculator: What class are you?
Apparently I'm Precariat Shocked - never heard of it before.
So, I'm poor and deprived. Don't actually feel that way, though Roll eyes

Re: Class action

I think the class calculator may be a little screwy, it has me listed as "Precariat" but I've always seen myself as Working Class.

Traditional working class

I'd never really thought about it before  Huh

In the summary it said -
Quote
Tend to mix socially with people similar to themselves

I filled in knowing someone in every job type except "Artist" and "Call centre worker",  so can't quite see how the above statement fits as all the other professions were so varied.

Re: Class action

It is screwed
I come out as Technical Middle Class which is about right
However if I add Artist to the people I socialise with it changes to Elite which is a load of tripe

Re: Class action

It's funny, you can become really, really rich by winning the lottery but be a total hermit who never leaves the (really expensive) house you bought, yet you're classed as "Elite" simply because of your wealth, that's with no social interaction and you spend all day, every day counting your money and swimming in it like I'd do if I had millions.  I'd class a person like that as eccentric rather than elite so I'd guess it's one of the dangers of generalization of classes.  Personally I'm on the very bottom rung though one day I aspire to be an Emergent service worker or, maybe, if I'm really, really lucky.... Traditional working class.
Must suck to be elite though, you have nothing to strive for!  Crazy
