The proletariat, in socialist language, is the people of the working classes who work for wages and salaries and do not own any property. Marx insisted that the proletariat should have the right to the fruits of their labor. That is, he wanted the working classes, especially those worked in factories or on the farm for capitalists or landlords to have their rightful share in the production.
