Gamma Minus?

Recommended Posts

I know this is from Brave New World. I have not read it. Have no desire to read it.

 

In the book I am reading, the term is being used insultingly - "a group of gamma minus girls in her home room were picking on her".

 

Google is no help. No matter how I phrase the search, they can't tell me what on is.

 

I understand that the fetuses are designated alpha beta gamma delta or epsilon. I understand that alphas and betas get good jobs while gammas deltas and epsilons get crappy ones.

 

It's the MINUS part that's throwing me.

 

Can someone explain just exactly what a gamma minus is?

Just gradations within the groups.
