This paper describes the class structure of the Australian workforce in terms of the theoretical approaches developed by Erik Olin Wright. The two class profiles presented and discussed are Wright's contradictory class location schema and his second schema based on the exploitation of assets. The distributions of class according to occupational group, gender and age are also discussed.
