Social Class
Social class refers to the system of classification of different groups in the society. The
most prevalent systems of stratification are majorly based on age, gender, ethnicity and
economic status (Weber, 2018). The social class enables different people to live separate lives in
a society. This essay will analyze the observation made in various stores that serve different
economic groups in the United States of America.
In the stores that I visited, they were designed uniquely to serve different social classes.
For instance, there are those of the poor, the middle class, the working class and the rich. The
services offered are designed to appeal to particular social groups. For instance, the bathrooms
for the poor were generally designed. They contained ordinary soap and tap water with the little
luxury. The bathrooms for the working class were improved. They had scented soaps, some
cleaning products as well as improved lavatory papers. The middle-class customer bathrooms
were well designed. They were well scented, had special soaps and some cleaning products.
However, the bathrooms meant for the rich were well designed with various products. For
instance, they were highly hygienic, had special cleaning agents and were scented with the most
artificial scent. They were also equipped with high-quality lavatory papers. They also contained
bathroom mats hugging around the cistern of the lavatory. They were also attached with hand
towels. The bathrooms designed for the rich offered more privacy than those of the middle class,
the working class and the poor.
