The economy of the West Coast would only be improved with the relocation of the Japanese, as many American farmers were missing out on work due to immigrant success. Pushy military persons used their positions to persuade the government to introduce mass relocation, when in reality, the necessity was only due to wartime hysteria. The biggest factor that led to the mass relocation of the Japanese people was racism. It grew out of the many acts that established the belief that Japanese people were not American citizens. Overall, the relocation of Japanese people in America was neither justified nor necessary.
In the Gilded age or the start of the industrial era, women and children were forced to leave their homes and try and get jobs in factories that were fit for them. This era created many new job opportunities than before. The number of women who now had actual jobs had increased drastically. Even though all these jobs had opened up women were only seen fit to do small tasks such as desk jobs that require little knowledge and skill to be able to do. Women forced into the work force tended to be poorer struggling individuals whose children were bound to labor as well.
This weakness lies in what Singer failed to mention. There is no doubt that he is correct when he states that American consumers spend money on what they don’t need. He is also accurate when he states that many families have the opportunity to do chartable work but chose not to. For example, he mentions a study done by Peter Ugne. In this research, it was found that $200, is all that is needed to save the life of a sick child in a foreign country.
Americans had rarely accepted outsiders as equals, and that was the case with immigrants coming to the U.S in the 1840s to the 1920s. A time in America where immigrants were not considered inferior to native white Americans did not exist. The hatred of anything non-American, especially with the coming of World War I in 1914, would only cause more Americans to despise immigrants. Part of this was rooted simply in racism, which existed towards groups other than African Americans, but much of it was simply that Americans considered themselves the chosen people while everyone else was below them. Thus, despite immigrants being accepted into America, those immigrants were still treated far worse than white citizens between the 1840s and 1920s, for the prejudice against them was obvious even in the laws created.
Growing up, my parents couldn 't always afford what I wanted, but I always had food and shelter. My dad’s family brought him to California chasing the American dream. He had to dropout of high school in order to help provide for his family due to economic problems. He was only sixteen having to work in the fields. My dad is currently working as a forklift driver for Driscoll’s where he has been working for over twenty-five years.
with regards to immigration. Several poll questions suggest that immigrants are unequivocal in their desire to remain in the United States and are enthusiastic about being U.S. citizens. The vast majority of immigrants do prefer U.S. to their homeland when it comes to job opportunities available for themselves and their children, and most think the United States superior in terms of legal justice. Two-thirds of all immigrants also think the chances of being treated fairly under the law are better in the United States; only 15% think the chances are better in their homeland. Poll findings suggest ethnicity is not related to general feeling of welcomeness, but age at the time of immigration is.
First was the jobs in America. Well that is because industrialization helped the United States to provide jobs for newly immigrated Japanese people. The immigrants would fill low-paying, low-status, or dangerous jobs that Japanese immigrants rejected. Another object was their homes. Many Japanese immigrants did not like their new jobs because the distance away from family and friends was a long disconnection.
She would accept any job, no matter how hard it is and how low they pay because she only wants the best for me. My father is also an immigrant, arriving all the way from Sri Lanka at age 22 with his best friend. They came here to escape hardship in their country in order to experience the American dream. He worked hard all his life just like my mother, holding a physical demanding job at a shipyard for over 20 years. While they are now divorce but they still both mutually putting me as the first in their priority.
Non-Mexicans have strongly been influenced by the media, entertainment, and news. These negative perceptions have contributed to prejudices and discrimination of the Mexican people. Most people who have these negative perceptions of the individuals in this culture have little to no direct exposure to the culture. If society has direct exposure to the culture, it would reveal a culture that is hardworking and grateful to be here in the United States. Mexicans are often working jobs that Americans believe they are too inferior to work.
Living in this beautiful country I have come to realize that our government feels as if they need to make up for our past political parties mistakes. Although they had good intentions, it has only made it harder only the majority of the population. America is unknowingly judgmental towards any select person that has a belief or opinion that is not supported at the current time. As an example people have seen the harsh behavior gay people have faced over the last hundred years so they decided to make their beliefs the most important.
