The Ancient Times

News about the Past


Ancient Rome had many options for jobs, depending on the Social Class they are in. They had many jobs we have in America today!


The Roman slaves and Proletariats were poor and couldn't get good jobs, Plebeians had decent jobs, and a lot of options. Patricians didn't have too many or to little job options, but they were the 'most important' jobs, and the jobs relating to ruling the nation. This show the Romans job options depend on the social class they are in.
