PROF. HOYLE
BY: JENN HUTCHINGS
PART A
I have interviewed both of my parents for this
Assignment and have my own knowledge to provide.
My
Grandparents have Dementia and therefore, could
not
participate.
During my interview with my Father, I found out the
following:
He has a grade 9 education and successfully
completed 5 College courses for Certificates
throughout the past 40 years. He has had
occupations like Management in Auto Sales, Car
sales at Dealerships, Mechanic Shops etc. He was
in Real Estate for a few years in between his
Mechanics and Dealerships. He was a partner in
an Online Business for about 9 yrs and then went
on to driving a Taxi for the past 11 years. His
current income is approximately $ 20,000
annually. He has no Political Party preference
and is a Caucasian Canadian citizen, born in
Newfoundland. He also has Protestant religious
beliefs.

These are the results from my Mothers interview:


My mother graduated from Secondary School with
her Grade 12 Diploma. She has worked in
Government offices, Sears Canada, been a
partner in the online business with my father, and
is now a Junior Rater at a Custom Brokerage
office.
Her annual income is approximately $25,000 and
she prefers the Liberal Party in Politics. She is
also Caucasian and a Canadian citizen, born in
Quebec, and has Protestant religious values.
PART B
Social Mobility in my family would be
Intergenerational due to my opportunities for a
higher education and careers, along with my
daughters increased chances of being successful
in her life. The social factors that have affected our
social mobility would be: employment opportunities
and discrimination for disabilities. My parents socioeconomic status would be considered Working class
while mine would be Poor class due to my disability
keeping me on Social Assistance (ODSP) for the past
ten years.
