I'll try to make it clearer and more palatable for you. I doubt that all 4 women are part of the same socio-economic class due to all the various juxtapositions seen in the photo given the stated location at a high-class university campus. I see tension in the expression of the woman on the left who is engaged in conversation with the woman on the right. I see tension in the forced smile of the woman on the right. I see tension in the middle coed with eyes closed (like she can't be bothered anymore) as she had just turned her head away from the women on the right. The juxtaposition of dress alone should be enough of a clue. The photographer always has the advantage; but the photo was not intended to test whether you could deduce that the woman on the right was part of the catering staff - that is just the backstory. Perhaps you have never strolled the campus of Stanford U. Although it is rated as one of the most diverse campuses in the country, most of the diversity calculation counts wealthy Asians - not blacks. The San Francisco/Silicon Valley metroplex is rapidly becoming an upper-class society. Rent for a bedroom (just one room) in a shared house in SF will cost you $1,000 per month. A filthy small one-bedroom apartment in a high-crime neighborhood will cost $2,000 per month. Tuition at Stanford about $45,000 per year.
...you don't need to make things clearer and more palatable for me.
Over 5000 posts - good for you buddy! What's your take on it? Should women be persecuted for doing what men can freely do?
This discussion isn't about me and it isn't about that other thread. If I felt that I wanted to add my commentary to the other thread I'll go and post in it. And I'm not your buddy.
It's a bit tight, but the composition is okay - showing 2 balancing subjects (group of 3 on the left, single on the right). It's generally a bit overexposed and (on my monitor) a little undersaturated, perhaps. The skin tones don't seem quite even, but I'm guessing there was some kind of coloured shade that caused the yellowish tinge (again, on my monitor). There is some context (the catering truck), but without having read the thread, I wouldn't have known or guessed any of the other context. I didn't realise that anyone still used the term "coed" to mean a female student.

Wow, I left this for awhile and it changed a bit.
I'd have guessed person on right exasperated at people on left for taking so long to order. Maybe a bit of 'you kids get off my lawn' and 'eff da police', respectively. I wouldn't have been surprised if they were high school students skipping class, and the right person one of their teachers. I don't consider their clothes to be different enough $$-wise to say either way regarding economic status. Also, there's a whole lot of frumpy rich people/brand-name dressed poor people in the Bay Area.
Is it normal to open a critique with a question? (unless ofc it is in regards to improving on. Which goes without saying in CC anyway)
T'would appear that we are so hung-up on political correctness that we are refusing to label the image for what it is...garbage.

From a photography standpoint,
I can't believe this thread. It went the gamut from insensitivity to outright stereotyping within a very short period of time. So many wrong assumptions from so many people I couldn't stomach it. Even after all that, I am still left clueless as to what the OP's intentions with this image were. There is nothing in this image that would warrant some form of social commentary. All it did was open it for name calling, body shaming, stereotyping and all kinds of negative interaction.

OP how did you reach the conclusion that she is poor?

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
