When delving into the global issue that is stratification, it is evident that all the societies in the world are stratified. Sociologists use the term Stratification in definition of the social inequality that does exist not only in the United States of America, but the whole world. There are social rankings where a certain group are deemed special than others to a level that they get special treatment. The Global stratification is categorized under three broad classes: industrializing, industrialized and least industrialized state.
The American and Global stratification systems will change over the next ten years and the stratification will vanish to a point that all the nations in the world are at par. The reason being, with the current rates of development, even the less fortunate countries will rise from the dust and become industrialized themselves. This also goes hand in hand with the education levels of the people in the countries discarded as underdeveloped. The ladies are digging their heads deep in stacks of books to secure employment slots, and enhance their social mobility up the societal ladder. Another catalyst is the issue of gender and equality. They seek jobs that were for ages believed to be for the alpha males, and this will eventually even out all the effects of stratification globally.
These changes will occur for one sole purpose, among others. But the major one is to ensure that all the human beings on the planet are equal, and none should be considered as superior for whatever reasons. The “superior nations” will no longer have to take advantage of the less fortunate in terms of cheap labor, cheap materials or more. The American stratification system and that of the whole world, on the basis of power, prestige and wealth will be no more. Inequality will be at arms lengths.
