Desi: April 2008 Archives

Sanjeev on social class stigma in India, vs the US:

“You aren’t just doing a different job than your employer — many perceive you to actually be a lesser person than your employer. And unlike the United States, few in India’s upper classes would ever think of working as a waiter or waitress. The salary differences are so great, the class-based stigma so large, that it would be unthinkable to spend a summer ‘waiting tables’ to come up with some spending cash for college.”
