Social Classes – Impacts of social class

Social class can impact a person’s life in many ways. Being of a lower class can mean that they are stuck in a never ending loop of being in a lower class because they are not able to receive the benefits of the higher classes that they would need in order to get out of it. Being part of a lower economic class would also mean lower access to proper healthcare and nutrition and lead to increased health problems when then makes their economic situation even worse than it already was, leaving them stuck deeper and deeper in the hole of their predicament. In addition to the economic problems of being in a lower economic class, being in a lower social has issues as well. There is an increased chance of being stopped by police and an increased level of prejudice in job applications or in the criminal justice system.
