I don’t agree with class labels. Everyone should have a chance to make something of their lives and not be associated with what their fathers did before they were born
Social mobility/meritocracy is a myth. of course, i can only say my class right now based on my father's occupation because i have no job right now.

Its nothing to be ashamed of being working class, the "chav" label in this context is just of the working class who are individualist rather than collective.

I am only a grocers daughter but I got into Manchester uni and my sons got into Oxford. Social mobility is not a myth if you want success badly enough

I prefer your way, but I think the salaries should be changed a bit, imo.

Upper working class - Sub 30k
Lower Middle Class - Sub 50k
Upper middle class - 50k+
Upper class - 150k+

I don't really think that being a homeowner is an upper-class thing, nor having a net worth exceeding 1m.
Doesn't upper class equal the aristocracy/landed gentry?

According to this I am upper working class.

I don’t believe in classes. I was born working class and became middle class. I think of myself as Heinz 57 variety. I judge people on whether they mean well.
