I picked Chapter 8: Social Class and Social Stratification because I can somewhat relate to it because when I was in second grade my mother, sister, and I were living in poverty and it changed my life and views on poor people forever but now we would be considered middle class and we are doing pretty good so I have experienced the social classes other, than the upper class, pretty well. As for the reason people end up in the state of poverty, you get there by lack of hard work. If you get lazy when you don’t have margin for error then obviously you are going to end up in a distraught situation.This is a news article talking about the poor people in New York I chose this article because we are staying in New York City and I have seen some of these poor people.
