Stratification: Class and Caste
Four caste categories
People of a social class share cultural patterns, so a class can be also seen as a "subculture."
Members of a social class associate with one another, more than with people in other social classes.
Friendship and marriage generally occur between people of the same social class.
One's social class is determined almost exclusively by one's income level and amount of accumulated wealth.
People born into higher social classes work hard to maintain their position, often trying to keep others from upward mobility.
