Wright concluded that not everyone could be easily placed into the worker-capitalist categories that Marx defined. Rather, some people fell into what Wright termed as contradictory class locations because they were simultaneously members of more than one class. Their resulting position could generate contradictory interests. Because of contradictory class locations, Wright modified Marx's model and identified four classes:
(1) capitalists, owners who employ many workers;
(2) petty bourgeoisie, owners of small businesses;
(3) managers who sell their labor but also exercise authority over others; and,
(4) workers who simply sell their labor to others.
