When Curley's wife sees Lennie, Candy, and Crooks talking together, how does she characterize them?

It is in the 4th chapter of the book.

In a word, cruelly.

She calls them "the weak ones," and says they are scared, "bindle stiffs." She threatens each of them, which is a kind of characterization of them as less than she is.
