Precariat

This is the poorest and most deprived class group. According to the Great British Class Survey results, lots of people in this group:

Tend to mix socially with people like themselves
Come from a working class background
Rent their home - over 80%

I think that they have a fucked up questionaire. Not that I mind being a prewhatever, it's that their presumptions are based on a very middle class mindset.

I'm precariat too - ironically "poor" would have been a more economic word to use.
