The contrast between the characters Barelas and Seferino conveys the wise knowledge one gains from experience and the bothersome disillusionment concerning money and happiness, therefore symbolizing the disparity between the foolish youth and the learned individual. Growing up, Seferino notices the relatively ill-mannered treatment Romero was receiving for his efforts. He was barely getting paid at all, and according to Seferino’s viewpoint, he wasn’t getting enough respect nor appreciation because of his low wages. Barelas, however, disagrees with his son’s assertion because although his argument logically makes sense, there is still experience from his viewpoint that causes him to disagree: Barelas just knew his son was putting something over on him but he didn’t know how to answer.

George is a typical lonesome man living in the Great Depression that migrates from ranch to ranch to find a place of work. However, his friendship with Lennie makes him different than the other men.
