This was similar to the United States of America, as the US was also trying to industrialize with a purpose of factories and people working in them. A big factor of the industrialization that both America and Russia shared was that both of these countries had a very unfair system for workers. The pay was not great, and people who were poor had it even worse. There is even an old saying that fits this very well, “The rich get richer”. This is true because the people who were already poor, who were working for the money so they could afford things like homes, food, water, and clothing, were staying poor, because their pay was so low that at the rate of them using their money for necessities, they were earning barely enough to afford them.
The ones responsible creating these policies are the ones who want the lower class to suffer to gain money. Peace is granted to the upper class because of the power they have ignoring the poor. The state needs wealthy allies to become powerful and richer which the laws that are created limit the poor having no access to
Industrialization in America between 1865 and 1900 completely modernized America; however, it came at the cost of nearly everyone who was not at the top of the big business hierarchy, especially the poor.
Carnegie stated that it is “much better this great irregularity than universal squalor” (Andrew Carnegie, “Wealth”). I believe that Carnegie contradicts himself with this statement, and I feel that it could be considered to create an ethical situation. Through his works he emphasizes the importance of sharing wealth for the greater good of society and to bridge the gap between the classes, but yet this statement seems to say that only a few are chosen to be wealthy while the rest of society is not. It in some ways undercuts the capabilities of the lower class. The giants of industrialism made their fortunes because of the labor of those worked for them.
The Provisional Government: The Provisional Government was the system appointed to rule Russia after the citizens had lost faith in their leader, Czar Nicholas ll. This system was planned to be permanent, until the Soviet inflicted. On March 1st the Soviet issued its first order into taking over Russia; taking control of the army by commanding them to only obey the Soviet. As the Soviet was becoming stronger, the Provisional Government was becoming weaker. They reorganized four times.
However, Americans were able to succeed because of their quick increase in population and economy. One of France’s financial problems came from the money they loaned America during the war. Arthur Young traveled throughout France and saw that “lands held by the nobility are taxed very little [and] lands held by commoners are taxed heavily” (Doc B). This comes back to the idea of inequality and how the government supported a class system in France that negativly affects the third estate. Because commoners’ land was taxed so much, they were unable to feed themselves.
Actually, unemployment remained high in the twenties. Although the government had policies to take income tax in order to balance the income between the rich and the poor, the actual income of the big companies were much more than what they pay for tax. The effort made by government did not help workers effectively. After the Great Depression, the New Deal programs benefited people who suffered from inequality a lot. As Franklin D. Roosevelt declared in his inaugural address, “through this program of action, we address ourselves to putting our own national house in order and making income balance outgo” and the main purpose was to “put people to work” (SR 226).
Compared to Europeans, Indians had a lot more, which the settlers were not used to,because the landscape in England was restricted for landowners. Heavy forests covered New England, which was also unusual to the settlers, England had cut down all of its wood for fuel. European settlers were amazed by the lack of domestic animals, which was very common in European agriculture. The European settlers and the Indians had different ways of how they live and different opinions on how they should use the land around them. Cronon expresses, “Many European visitors were struck by what seemed to them the poverty of Indians who lived in the midst of a landscape endowed so astonishingly with abundance” (Cronon 33).
Many peasants died from the disease, probably from their poor diets and lack of nourishment. Workers were in high demand and the peasants knew it. At this time, most pandemics were deadly since there was no medicine or technology. The Black Death was not the only pandemic going around Europe, other diseases include syphilis and gonorrhea.
People are overcrowded in these households and only earn social security, veteran or disability’s income. The reservations do not have industrial employers and most of the employers include federal and tribal governments. The condition has resulted to high level of unemployment, which does not only affect individuals but the entire society. The employment problems are driving many Native American families into a state of poverty which has forced some to become homeless. Housing is another factor causing poverty in the Native American Reservations.
They began to realize that the government was mostly controlled by the wealthy and mostly benefitted them. The 1824 presidential election results proved their sentiments even more because even though the War Hero of the West Andrew Jackson had the most electoral votes, the wealthy New Englander John Quincy Adams became President. When the next election came, the
The rich use tactics to gain the support of the middle class, but without losing any of their own riches, like wealth or power, for their own gain. It was at the cost of the “slaves, Indians, and poor whites” (Zinn 1). It spared the rich any expenses, but brought them much gain, from the support. Finally, the growth of the colonies positively impacted the rich as well, as they received the profits and benefits from the expansions. With one percent of property owners owning forty four percent of the wealth, it shows how the majority of the wealth was given to the rich, and not distributed among the other classes at all, deepening the division.
Those who are poor and believe that job opportunities and advancement are able to actually happen are more happy than the rich who think that the ability for job advancement and higher pay for the more poor and unfortunate people
The living conditions for the slaves were usually a small building that housed all the slaves in one room. The nutrition that was given was too small amount for the amount of work that was done. But after generations of whites and backs living together there became a bond almost friendship with some of the people on the plantation. But this did not justify the owning of another human being. As time went on we began to grasp how the use of slavery was cruel and inhuman.
Low wages afforded a means of subsistence and little else. This kept the black population from any economic advancement in society and thereby forced them into a poor laboring class with no way out. This, Straker stated, institutes a large disparity between the two races which the nation is the worse
