When Is a Worker Not a Worker?

When Is a Worker Not a Worker?

Dear Sir,

Please tell me who are the 'workers' and who the 'middle class'.

From the last paragraph of last week's editorial, I got the impression that only middle class people's children come to university. As the child and grandchild of people who earn/earned their living by working, and having worked for the greater part of the time since leaving school, I now find that:
a)because of all this 'hereditary' work, I shouldn't be here at all,
b)because I'm here, we haven't been working' at all.
