Rosalyn plays an important part in the movie, she has the power to ruin the whole plan is she makes one simple mistake. The film was inspired by a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FDI) sting operation, ABSCAM. While the FBI was looking for the people who have stolen a piece of art, they discovered more than what they set out to find. They were able to find criminals that were involved with fake stocks and bonds. They discovered that government officials were bribing businesses.
The meat-packing industries carelessness towards their workers are physically endangering them daily. “Men who used knives on the sped-up assembly lines frequently lost fingers. Men who hauled 100-pound hunks of meat crippled their backs” (Constitutional Rights Foundation). The repetitive endangerment of these businesses’ workers highlight the industry’s unnatural greed and lack of empathy. The damages that are inflicted on their workers can be critical, life-changing or even lethal.
When the building collapsed on them, it should not have been as big of surprise as it ended up being. The building was structurally unsound and the owner knew this, but garment factories can not afford to go out of business for even a day. They earn extremely little money to start with, so any missed days takes a large toll on the owners of these factories. Most people would think that after the tragedy of the Rana Plaza, other textile factories would have higher standards, but sadly, this is not the case. In the film The Cost of Cloth: Ethical Textiles it describes a regular textile factory found today.
Big businesses, such as oil and railroad companies owned by John D. Rockefeller and J.P. Morgan, tended to dominate politics. Even businesses on smaller scales did very little to provide security for workers, which fueled the desire for reforms even more. The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of 1911 was a catastrophic event that proved a change was desperately needed, but when the owners were sentenced and merely fined, it only seemed to, once again, prove that the courts did not side with the victims. In response, more and more people, such as Rose Schneiderman, began to attempt to organize unions because of the lack of support from the government. Although the government did make attempts to stop monopolies and trusts, such as the Sherman Antitrust Act, the attempts were not strong enough to make any progress.
This canal is consisting of heavy metal such as polycyclic hydrocarbons, raw sewage, typhoid, cholera and tuberculosis The Gowanus Canal has been a home to many industries that produced high manufacturing volumes such as its neighboring gas plants, oil refineries, coal yards, cement manufacturers, tanneries, paint and ink factories, machine shops, and chemical plants amongst other industries. Due to poor environmental practices over many years, large amounts of sewage and industrial waste have been copiously discharged within the canal.
I got to see a side of the criminal justice system that I have never seen before. After writing multiple papers on the War on Drugs, I am completely aware of the injustices it entails. Federal lawmakers impact lower-level, nonviolent drug defendants with their enactment of mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines, even though they are attempting to target high-level distributors. Incarceration of these people destroys their lives because a criminal conviction makes it harder to live a productive life as you are not eligible for certain jobs, loans, etc. All things considered, my experience at the King County Drug Diversion Court opened my eyes to some of the changes occurring in our justice system in regards to the War on Drugs.
Alexander 's book is relevant to my research paper because she provides evidence that the criminal justice system is rooted in racism and directly linked to the racist agenda of the white supremacist.

Researches have shown that each year, over 100 million animals are tortured and killed in American laboratories alone, including dogs, cats and more; this shows how far out of hand animal testing have gotten. It’s cruel and inhumane, which is why it has to end right now. If you disagree, you have to ask yourself: “Why not? Why don’t you want to end their suffering? How can you sit there and watch such cruelty?” Making animals test subjects are wrong, no matter what’s its purpose.
The injury rate in a slaughterhouse is about three times higher than the rate in a typical American factory.” The author uses pathos by shocking the reader with a unfathomable statistic on injuries in the workplace. He went on to state, “A brief description of some cleaning-crew accidents over the past decade says more about the work and the danger than any set of statistics. … Richard Skala was beheaded by a dehiding machine. … was pulled into the cogs of a conveyor belt at an Excel plant in Fort Morgan, Colorado, and torn apart. … fell from the top of a skinning machine while cleaning it with a high-pressure hose, struck his head on the concrete floor and died.
Chris Woodford (Water Pollution: an Introduction 1) explains “Each year, the world generates perhaps 5–10 billion tons of industrial waste, much of which is pumped untreated into rivers, oceans, and other waterways.” Radioactive wastes and oil spills affect the wildlife living in these areas in great ways. In 1989, Exxon Valdez created one of the biggest oil spills in United States waters. Around 12 million gallons (44 million liters) of oil were released into the pristine wilderness, enough to fill your living room over 800 times. Around 1,000-28,000 sea
The Homestead Strike is known to be one if the most violent strikes in history. Carnegie and Henry Clay Frick cut the wages of the employees by 20% at Homestead steel plant. Since the workers were angry, Frick locked them out, causing them to surrounded the building. He decided to hire a small private army of Pinkerton detectives, not knowing that the workers would forced the army to surrender. Not only did 3 detectives die but also 10 workers.
Did you know that bloody Sunday was one of the worst massacres in Washington state history? Also known as the Everett Massacre. This day many people died. There was corruption and it was not a good time altogether. And the IWW (industrial workers of the world) had the most control over everyone because they were so big.
