Social mobility has different meanings and in general it refers to movement of individuals or groups in their social position over time. It may be looked at within a particular group from various socio-economic lenses such as class structure, ethnic groups or gender.

Striving for better lives and supporting our families is universal. The term American Dream symbolizes an enduring faith that people can start from a humble beginning and reach highest economic status if they wish so and work hard.
