This chapter analysis the constitution of a class or classes lying between capital and labour, an analysis which shall in turn relate to the importance of educational credentials in distinguishing between class places within contemporary capitalism. It aims to distinguish sharply between the service class and deskilled white-collar workers in terms of the market and work situations of their respective class places. Three main groups comprise the independent primary sector: middle management, workers with craft skills, and professionals. The chapter clarifies the distinction between places and persons. The distinction between persons and places is one that is made in recent social theory. The chapter argues that classes are defined in terms of places with distinctive market and work situations, it is only possible to understand them by showing what the functional role of class places is. It then suggests that the service class is best seen as produced by a hierarchy of processes.
