six topics of mobility and how these topics are linked to Covid-19. As we all
know, the year 2020 has brought many challenges and changes. At the forefront,
is the force of Covid-19. At a micro level, Covid-19 affects different people in
different ways. Infected people have had a wide range of symptoms reported from
mild symptoms to severe illness to death. At a meso and macro levels, Covid-19
has brought illness, as well as a shift in social mobility.

macro levels. In this assignment you will critically think about how Covid-19 has affected or has the
potential to affect a person/people, or society’s mobility. You are to critically
think about each mobility topic below and address ALL SIX topics in paragraph
form. You are to have one paragraph for

refers to the ability to change positions within a social stratification
system. When people improve or diminish their economic status in a way that
affects social class, they experience social mobility.
refers to an increase or upward shift in social class. In the United States
people applaud the rags-to-riches achievements of celebrities like Jennifer
Lopez or Michael Jordan. Best-selling author Stephen King worked as a janitor
prior to being published. Oprah Winfrey grew up in poverty in rural Mississippi
before becoming a powerful media personality. There are many stories of people
rising from modest beginnings to fame and fortune. But the truth is that
relative to the overall population, the number of people who launch from
poverty to wealth is very small. Still, upward mobility is not only about
becoming rich and famous. In the Unites States, people who earn a college
degree, get a job promotion or marry someone with a good income may move up
indicates a lowering of one’s social class. Some people move downward because
of business setbacks, unemployment, or illness. Dropping out of school, losing
a job, or becoming divorced may result in a loss of income or status and, therefore,
downward social mobility.
explains a difference in social class between different generations of a
family. For example, an upper-class executive may have parents who belonged to
the middle class. In turn, those parents may have been raised in the low class.
Patterns of intergenerational mobility can reflect long-term societal changes.
describes a difference in social class between different members of the same
generation. For example, the wealth and prestige experienced by one person may
be quite different from that of his or her siblings.
happens when societal changes enable a whole group of people to move up or down
the social class ladder. Structural mobility is attributable to changes in
society as a whole, not individual changes. In the first half of the 20th
century, industrialization expanded the U.S. economy, raising the standard of
living and leading to upward structural mobility. In today’s work economy, the
recission and the outsourcing of jobs overseas have contributed to high
unemployment rates. Many people have experienced economic setbacks, creating a
wave of downward structural mobility.
Americans believe that people move up in class because of individual efforts
and move down by their own doing.
analyzing the trends and movements in social mobility, sociologists consider all
modes of mobility. Scholars recognize that mobility is not as common or easy to
achieve as many people think. In fact, some consider social, mobility a myth.” www.worldwideweb.
