Modes of Transport and Socioeconomic Status in Morocco
Based on my extensive social science skills, I have developed this easy rule of thumb for socio-economic classification based on Moroccan modes of Transport as a proxy:
If your main mode of transport is:
Luxury SUV: you work for the government
Luxury SUV with minor body damage and expired plates: you work for the
government but your wages haven't kept pace with inflation
Foreign Sedan: your brother/uncle/father works for the government
Dirtbike or Moped: You'd love to work for the government . . . . why?
Did you hear they were hiring . . . .
Donkey Cart: you work for the government, you just don't know it
By Foot: What government?
