Step-by-step explanation

C. Domination/oppression of lower class

 

The elite or the bourgeoisie is oppressing the people but taking advantage of their vulnerability.  The proletariat or lower class is susceptible to abuses committed by the elite by giving them a less or low salary but the capitalist or elite is receiving profit at the expense of the lower class cheap labor.

 

Also, the elite is prioritizing their capital over the labor interest particularly where some poor workers are not given much safety in the workplace as well as they are not concerned with the well-being of the workers. Even women and children are capitalized on by the elite just to secure their cheap labor.
