The Servant Class City

University of Minnesota Press

The eighth chapter looks at the challenges that the inner city and working poor have in terms of economic mobility based on a lack of economic or financial resources. This is especially true for the servant class economy, as not only are the structures of opportunity limited, but also the barriers to movement are increasingly severe, making the relative probability of escaping the bottom of the urban-class strata far less likely.
