[nclzdccu] Replenishing the lower classes

The lower classes, constantly working the system to achieve upward class mobility, will have some members, often of the next generation, succeed.  However, assume society needs a fixed size (or fixed proportion) lower class population, probably for labor.  Enumerate the methods used in various societies of keeping the lower classes sufficiently populated counteracting losses due to upward movement, probably methods of class demotion.

Forbidding abortion might be one: unplanned pregnancy, especially with single mother, may demote both mother and future child.
