The social class system in the U.S

Examine the social class system in the U.S. and how all aspects of our lives are impacted by our social class position.

Using Dennis Gilbert and Joseph Kahl’s model of social class, identify your family’s social class position on the social class ladder, while explaining what general factors you are using to place your family in that position, as well as noting any examples of status inconsistency. Please remember that the income levels that Gilbert and Kahl use are not accurate for California. To have a more accurate idea of the income levels of each social class group in the Bay Area we would have to just about double the numbers that provided in the textbook.
Predict (or imagine) the social class to which you see yourself belonging twenty years from now, while noting whether it is the same as or different than your family’s current social class position.

Consider several different advantages and/or disadvantages your family’s current social class position provides or poses in helping to determine the social class to which you see yourself belonging twenty years from now. Choose three of the advantages and/or disadvantages to explain in more detail for the discussion board. (You do not have to tell us all the advantages/disadvantages, only three.)
