Field identification

Since nobody seems to know anything about the working class, especially politicians and television "journalists," here are some clues, speaking occupationally (and with no reference to other so-called indicators, such as education, culture, and income). A person of the working class reads the afternoon edition of the paper, or, if there is no longer an afternoon edition, either leaves for work before the paper is delivered or doesn't have time to read it in the mornings, or both. A member of the working class may possibly bathe twice a day but, if it's only once, that will be in the evening, after work, so as to retire refreshed. A working-class household is very likely to keep bars of Lava soap or an equivalent hand-cleaning substance around.
