Also known (usually disparagingly) as 'the great unwashed', 'hoi polloi', 'the lumpenproletariat', plebs, proles, or, personified as a generalised individual: 'the man in the street', 'Joe Public' ('Joe Blow' in the USA apparently), and, quaintly, 'the man on the Clapham omnibus'.

"Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me... I am what I am and I'm happy to be Joe Public." Neil Innes: Joe Public
