Member Brief: The New Class System

Everyone is quitting and few understand why. I believe that I do. We are redefining our class system, and some are dissatisfied with their ranking.

Technology has always played a role in designing class structure in the United States. At the 1939 World’s Fair in New York City, Westinghouse Electric screened a one-hour film called “The Middletons“, featuring an Indiana family who visits the fair and sees the futuristic definition of the middle-class lifestyle:

The Middletons are designed to represent the middle class response to the Fair’s imagined future.

The past is prologue because our class system is once again reconfiguring around consumables and societal improvements. The current influx of resignations are highest in industries like leisure, hospitality, trade, and transportation.
