Межгенерационное воспроизводство профессиональных статусов и классовой принадлежности в современном российском обществе
Intergenerational reproduction of professional statuses in modern Russia is less widespread than the professional mobility and is typical primarily for polar groups: managers and professionals, on the one hand, and manual and trade workers, on the other. Th e situation is diff erent with class affi liation, for which intergenerational reproduction is prevalent. Th is imbalance is explained by the fact that people from parental families with diff erent professional status, even being in the same professional groups, occupy job positions that diff er signifi cantly. Th ose who come from families of managers and professionals and have retained this professional affi liation usually belong to the core of the middle class defi ned by criteria of income, education, and professional status. At the same time, managers and professionals who grew up with parents with a diff erent professional status, usually belong only to the periphery of the middle class or do not belong to it at all, since the specifi cs of their resources (qualifi cation, personal, etc.) aff ect their ability to occupy the attractive job positions within their respective occupational groups. Moreover, those who come from families of managers and professionals have a high chance of getting into the middle class even if they hold the positions of semi-professionals or clerks, as well as a relatively low chance of belonging to the lower class if they are manual and trade workers, since they occupy positions that ensure the highest salaries, the functions of supervisors etc. even in these professional groups. At the same time, it is common for hereditary representatives of the lower class to fi nd themselves in the worst job positions in all respects, even within the framework of its typical professional groups (manual and trade workers). Th ese specifi cs of social reproduction largely determine its character in modern Russia.
