While they were traditionally among the lower-class of society, "naco" nowadays can refer to the nouveau-riche or someone who wishes to emulate the habits of the wealthier classes. This term is generally pejorative and is used in contrast to "fresa" (yuppy; spoiled). It is similar to "white-trash", "redneck", or "tav".
