Some differences in national stratification structures

As was to be expected, the higher average occupational incomes attained in certain countries have created significant differences between their national stratification structures and the structure obtaining across the region as a whole. In the countries where incomes are higher, a larger proportion of the workforce is employed in non–manual, salaried and non–agricultural occupations. Nonetheless, a more detailed analysis of occupational stratification in the country in which these changes are most evident shows that the increase in non–manual occupations has led to a considerable diversification of such occupations and to growing disparities in the earnings they bring, thus contributing to the maintenance of a polarized occupational stratification
