Conclusion - Today, social class does not really mean much about how people treat others. Back then, it was a huge part of your life, how rich you were in the social ladder. In Wuthering Heights, most of the characters social status fluctuated. We can see the way these characters are treated in the book, whether they're treated well, bad, ignored, as if they just exist, etc. This book has taught us a lot in how much the world has changed. We should not treat people the way that they were treated in the book. Everyone should be treated equally. Learn they're WHOLE story, not just what you see on the outside.
