(extremely wealthy and the average)

SLIDE 4
-This graph sums up Wrights analysis.
!The bottom shows the strength of different social classes.
!The interest of the higher class: safe working conditions, good income
!The interest of the working class (bourgeois): Long term steady profit rate, and lack of interference from workers.
-On one side there would be maximum exploitation, 24hour work days, and slave like conditions are the extreme for
the working class. On the other end, extreme conditions would be workers being subordinate to larger companies.
!Both are still forms of inequality
-Wright suggest that both classes will have their interest met (social democratic ideal)
!State of cooperation between capitalist and labor
