Veblen in his work heavily describes the idea of the leisure class and how it is a part of all societies. The leisure class in society is made by elite individuals, that because of their status and wealth, do not have to take part in any work that requires manual labor. The leisure class mostly have jobs that include management, and critical thinking because they have an excellent access to the means of production (marx). This allows the leisure class to look down at the working class, mail because they have to take part in hard manual labor. It is sad that this is he case, especially in the UK where the chavs are looked down upon at all times.
Leisure in definition means “to use free time for enjoyment”. The leisure class do not have to take part in hard work, therefore they have the time and and wealth to do things that they like. This ability to be in the elite class allows them to have fun, unlike people who are in the working class. People in the working class are not able to have that leisure time because they are to busy working and taking care of their kids.
