What’s interesting is even if you look up information on the notion of classes in America such as Lower, Middle and Upper class, which is our 3 general socioeconomic classes, it’s described in terms of Marxist theory.
Interestingly, the GI Bill is hailed as the start of the Middle Class in the USA: there was no middle class in America before that. I don’t know when they starting using class language in the USA and if it was at one time controversial;
“What Constitutes the Middle Class
The birth of the middle class, in some respects, has been linked to federal funding and support through programs such as the G.I. Bill, which offered funds for education and the start of businesses created by veterans who were discharged”
