Just a footnote for later reference.
Working Class Movements of the past have _always_ been movements of some
lop-sided fragment of the class -- including the class that made the
great revolution. In the aftermath of the October Revolution the
Bolsheviks had a tough time making the phone system work because all the
phone operators were terrified of "the workers" -- i.e., a major part of
the Russian working class did not consider themselves (and were not
considered by other workers) to be workers.
And I don't remember the exact figures, but I think that in the mid-19th
century there were more servants in London than there were industrial
workers in the whole of Britain.
What is the american working class.
