Stepping Around the Mop Water: Views of Status and Occupation in University Custodians and Students
At VU, people holding lower-class and potentially high-class occupations meet in the same buildings day after day. While custodians and students occupy the same institutional space, they experience a wide gap in status----while students are highly visible products ofthe university system and the dominant ideology, custodians are intimately and invisibly situated in an institution whose mission fails to provide for a way to affirm their occupation.
