Abstract

The current paper talks about the unavoidable class system that we all are entrapped
in. The basic issue lies in the fact that the society we live in and grow operates on
the system of class consciousness. The rich /bourgeoisie class uses and abuses the
low or poor class to get their work done, whereas the poor or the proletariat has no
choice except to be manipulated by the rich class for the cost of labor, for they know
that their survival lies in manipulation. It has become an accepted phenomenon that
the rich class/bourgeoisie exploits the poor class for their needs and desires. The
rich class has become totally dependent on the proletariat and they know they
cannot move without them. As the society is designed and planned on unequal
footings so, on the one hand, the rich class has found a medium to exploit the labor
class but at the same time the proletariat are not allowed to interact with them and
furthermore there is bleak chance of their unification as the lower/labor class is
itself a stigma in the eyes of the bourgeoisie.
