For now, below is a Discussion Board assignment based on chapter 2 in the textbook. While this chapter addresses issues of wealth, Socio Economic Status is tied to income, education, inheritance (socially and financially), occupational prestige, and patterns of consumption. Also, it is tied to power. Who has power to make people do things against their will? Who has power to move resources? Who has power to declare war? Who has physical power? Who can impose psychological power over others and under what circumstances? In addition, just because a person has money does not mean that they have power. Last, the concepts of Social Stratification/Hierarchy, Social Inequality, and Social Differentiation are at the heart of this chapter.
Below is a list of occupational titles commonly known to us.
i) Please rank the occupations by status from 1-9 (9 being the highest). It is possible to have one occupation have the same score as another occupation.
ii) After you have ranked the occupations, write down the criteria you used in order to generate the ranking. — What is your rubric for rank ordering? How does chapter 2 talk about wealth distribution as a social problem?
iii) Which of the following occupations did your parents not want you to go into and why? How does society think about these types of work? Who is best suited for these jobs and why? Are any of these transitional jobs? How important is each of these to society and why?
