What Does WWC Mean in a Text?

WWC means "White Working Class." Before the American presidential race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in 2016, the most common definition for WWC was World Wrestling Council. During the presidential race, the abbreviation WWC was used heavily by the pro-Clinton New Yorker magazine to describe white, working-class voters who felt ignored by the political elite and who had lost the "American dream." As a result, the most common definition for WWC is now "White Working Class."
