    Default win group/lose group

    These days here in this country, people or
    organizations tend to be divided (by some people)
    into two groups: those who have achieved success
    (especially IT-related people) and those who are
    left behind.
    Do the terms 'win group' and 'lose group' work?
    Thank you.

    I'd use 'winners and losers'.

    I see. Thank you very much.
    How about 'winner group' and 'loser
    group' if we are referring to groups.
    "He is now in the loser group."
    No?

    I think it's correct to say
    winner group and loser group
    I have already read them
