Working Class, and the Best of Everything

On your question of how to organize the support group so it will not be divisive, I would call it “working class determined to have the best of everything.” That’s a healthy attitude for working-class people anyway. I certainly think all of us should play in string quartets and have the very best clothes, shoes, food, and so on. It’s not my goal at all for the working class to stay poor—it’s just not to get well-off* at anyone else’s expense.

Harvey Jackins
From a letter written in 1985

* “Well-off” means prosperous.
