In today’s society, the separation of social classes and the variation of socioeconomic statuses continue to increase. According to “Class in America,” which was published in Race, Class, and Gender in the United States, wealth distribution in the United States has continued to change over the years. It appears that the rich are getting richer, and the poor are getting poorer. Due to the way wealth is distributed in today’s society there are 3.4 million homeless individuals in the United States (Mantsios, 2009). As a result of the wealth distribution in our society, more individuals are being considered lower class as a result of their socioeconomic status. People that have a lower socioeconomic status are often considered to be very poor.
