Occupation and Stratification

Discussion 7.2: Occupation and Stratification Answer the following questions for the initial post. 1. SELECT a career from the "Prestige Rankings of Occupations" on page 188 in the class text. What is your chosen career and prestige score? 2. Do you find that this number is low (or high) based upon the other rankings? Why? 3. Review the list again. What is an occupation that has a high prestige number yet might not pay that much? 4. We are prone to judging people by how they appear. Suppose that a person is lower-income. How might they dress and act to give the appearance that they are of a higher class? Finally, read and reply to your fellow students' answers to number four above. Can you provide an example where you witnessed this personally?
