Cultural Insight 4: Class

Why is the USA called the land of opportunity? Do you know the difference between a class based and classless society? This cultural insight podcast sheds some light on this subject.

 

What does the sign say in our featured photo? “We are looking to hire a woman to work at our hotdog stand.” In Ecuador employers can hire based on sex, color or any other criteria they choose.
