Class is a concept from sociology where all the people are put into a number of different groups. One such group is the working class - people who do hard work and get paid for it, but who usually do not have a lot of money.

Historians usually see two other groups - people who are rich or have a lot of influence, called the upper class, and all the remaining people who are in between, called the middle class.
