56. Petit bourgeois is a Marxist term
It is term to mean low end management and other low end members of the classical definition of middle class. The classical definition of the middle class excluded peasants and others workers, but included foremen and low end management. Marx pointed out it is when such low end members of the middle class start to see their income drop steadily, a revolution is due. This was based on Marx analysis of history, and as to this observations, Marx has been found to be correct.

Just explaining what the term means.
