Abstract:
This issue brief discusses the discrimination that Americans face due to their socioeconomic status particularly with regards to political engagement, access to education and class mobility. Understanding class divides requires an understanding of preexisting racial oppression that often aligns with class oppression. The main component of this brief will be highlighting the challenges individuals and politicians face when trying to mitigate class inequality.
