    They understand things that rich people don't. They're better at refusing money for favours because they know that's a means for the wealthy to manipulate them

    People are also proud of not being working class, so part of it is a reaction to that.

    Also the implication that everything they have has been earned, where for other people there is a higher chance that they inherited their wealth/property etc.

    Also in the same vein, the implication that everything they have achieved has been in spite of not having opportunities often afforded to members of other classes.

    Working class pride pales into comparison to the pride shown by a middle class couple taking delivery of their new AGA.

    To make a point that it's not something to be ashamed of.

    Working hard jobs is something to be proud of in certain regards. So many people are too weak (mentally or physically) for physical labour... if the world turned into an apocalypse I guarantee the working class folk who are outdoors all day would be running the show
