- according to wright, the bourgeoisie have all three forms of control, while the proletariat have none, the petit bourgeoisie have some of the first two forms of control but no supervisory control over workers, while manager have supervisory control. These forms of control then correspond to four distinct classes: bourgeoisie, petit bourgeoisie, manager and proletariat. 1 class PB: own capital but since they employ few if any workers, they exercise very little authority. 2 class M: work in first owned by the capitalist but who have direct authority over large number of workers. Identify with the bourgeoisie but are just as replaceable as any other employee. The upper class- old rich: been rich for generations - new rich: plastic surgeons, athletes, founder of rexall, ebay..the upper middle class- comprised of people working in professional careers (doctors, lawyers). These people are not enormously wealthy but tend to drive fancy cars and stuff, take international holidays and live innice homes. - much of the success in this class results from education.
