Top definition

refers to all within the social group which are not members of the economic and political elite or the aristocracy. Also in contrast to the term used by the left (working class) which effectively refers specifically to those within the social group who are manual factory or industrial workers. Common class however, makes reference to both the employed and unemployed members of the social group as well.
Mike who is a Doctor, Charles who is a manual labourer, Tracy who is a Teacher, John who is homeless and unemployed are all members of the common class.
