In this essay I will analyse and discuss the obstacles regarding social mobility there is in Britain.
Britain is at the moment dealing with a huge problem, where it is almost impossible for the younger generations and “treadmill families” to move up in the social classes.
The former Labour Cabinet minister told, that the social mobility ladder is growing further apart. It means that it is harder for people and families in the lower classes of the system to move up.
The reason for this problem is an unfair education system, a two-tier labour market, a regionally imbalanced economy and an unaffordable housing market.
These social divisions they face in Britain nowadays, do not only impact the very poorest in society or the few thousand youngsters who do not go to a top university.
