A person might argue that people from the working class should work harder at their jobs, in order to climb up the socio-economic ladder and enjoy the better life that wealthier people are able to enjoy.

Write an essay to argue that there is more to this than what meets the eye. Not everyone has an equal playing field in life, explain why and what are the implications of having such a distorted understanding of one’s class identity and interest and position in society.

2. demonstrate your ability to apply these concepts to reality in an illuminating and
persuasive way.
