Social mobility 1

  1. 1. Social mobility is the movement, usually of individuals or groups, from one social position to another within the socially stratified system in any society. (Social mobility allows individuals to move either up or down the hierarchy.) It may refer to classes, ethnic groups, or entire nations.
  2. 2. In closed systems, like in the plantation society, social mobility was impossible. Now in the Caribbean it is quite possible according to what people have accomplished.
  3. 3. Vertical Mobility- there are two ways vertical mobility can take place. They are upward mobility and downward mobility. Upward Mobility- this is where an individual or a group can improve their position in the hierarchy. Example: an individual gets a seat in parliament. This allows the individual to attain a lot of money and improve their status thus moving up in the hierarchy.
  4. 4. Downward Mobility-this is where an individual or a group can worsen their status thus lowering their position in the hierarchy. Example: a person loses his job as a lawyer and decides to work as a plumber. This new job shows that their status has been lowered as well as his position in the hierarchy.
  5. 5. Horizontal Mobility-it is a change in an occupational position but not a change in status. It is a change in position but within the range of the same status. Example: an accountant leaves his old job to work for a different company because it is closer to home.
  6. 6. Social Mobility amongst East Indians: In the larger island territories such as Jamaica, Trinidad and Guyana, which received East Indian labourers, these workers were designated to the lowest position in the social structure. East Indians are no longer situated at the bottom of the social structure as a social grouping, but rather, they rank at various levels. This change was influenced by marrying someone successful, attaining a good education, getting a good job, wise investments etc. Indeed, overtime, East Indians have acquired a great deal of economic power. This is mostly seen in territories such as Trinidad and Guyana.
  7. 7. Social Mobility amongst Africans: The African population of the Caribbean has been largely descended from the formerly enslaved populations. For almost 400 years, enslaved blacks were stereotyped as inferior. They held no political power, no wealth, and no citizenship and were denied to actively and openly participate in their own cultural traditions. All of these factors placed them to the base position of the social hierarchy. After Emancipation, Africans abandoned the estates, in a bid to seek out and create a socially and economically independent life. Most Africans sought to educate their children. Africans rose to political dominance in most of the island territories and maintained such power from the 1960’s unto the present.
