Few ideas are more dear to Americans than the belief that they live in a society free of class, and nothing in modern times has done a better job of putting a lie to that myth than the COVID-19 pandemic.

The janitors, building maintenance personnel and receptionists; the cooks and wait staff in the corner restaurant; the bartenders and servers at the after-work watering hole – most of them now out of work.
