Frick hired the Pinkertons, a private army, to attack the workers. The Pinkertons fired upon the workers, and many of the workers tried to run many were shot and severely injured and nine were killed in this demonstration of profits over people attitude. One worker that survived the strike said “It was a place of torment. Men were lying around wounded and bleeding and piteously begging for someone to give them a drink of water, but no one dared to give them a drop, although water was all around us…” Often workers would say that if Carnegie knew what was going on inside his mills, he would be horrified. In reality, he was well aware of what went on and just didn’t care.
Another difference was their family life. Chris never had a girlfriend, and was very distant from his parents, truly only finding solace in his sister. Cheryl, on the other hand, Was very close to her mother and became devastated when she died, Cheryl was also married before divorcing her husband once her mother died, and her life began to crumble. Another difference was their connections to their previous worlds. Cheryl had continuous connection to those around her and kept in touch to update them on her location, as well as receive food and money from them.
In the Victorian area, the woman never had much authority over the man of the house but if the man was not home, the woman did everything. They women did not even have rights over their own property. The church also looked down upon a family if the women became in control of certain roles of the house. This time frame was not pleasant to the women, it thrived in the literacy
Helen Robinson, Tom’s wife, was jobless after the trial and, with children to feed, she desperately needed a job. So, in an effort to not let the Robinson family feel forgotten, Mr. Link Deas, Tom’s former employer, took mercy on Helen and gave her a job, even though he didn’t really need her. He just felt bad that things had turned out the way they did, thus using empathy to interpret and assist with the Robinson family’s situation
Now widowed, she must raise her children, maintain her household and work to make a living for herself. Because she is black, a woman, and the wife of a man accused of raping a white woman, Helen was not able to find work. The person that hired her and the only person in Maycomb that would do so, was Mr. Link Deas, Tom’s former employer. He did not really need Helen’s services, but felt bad about what happened to Tom and he was one of the few decent people in Maycomb where colored people are concerned. “He doesn’t really need her, but he said he felt right bad about the way things turned out.” (TKAM, pg.
What is a puppy mill? According to the ASPCA a puppy mill is a large-scale commercial dog breeding facility where profit is given priority over the well-being of the dogs. Puppy mills are very overcrowded and many don’t have proper veterinary care. A lot of puppies have contaminated water and food and many are malnourished. Female dogs are often bred every opportunity that they get and when they can no longer reproduce they are often killed.
The only job that women were allowed to do was to help their husbands in their farms. But that all had changed when the United States went into wars and men had to go fight for the country. Women began to occupy a few jobs like working in munition factories or becoming the angels of mercy and working as nurses to relieve the soldiers’ pain. That was the starting point for women to begin demanding to work like men. Although occupied few jobs for very low pay, women were still not considered a part of the work force and they did not have any formal workplace rights and usually faced discrimination and unfair treatment from the other gender.
A large portion of the population have suffered from diseases and did not get the health care they needed because the big business owners are not aiding their workers. The main company which controlled everyone had been the Packingtown. It was a meat company. There they did everything from producing the meat to packing it and shipping it. This provided many jobs for the people living in packingtown.
She was an immigrant just like my siblings and I, so her getting a job was difficult. From cleaning houses to babysitting kids, my exhausted mother would still make the effort to comfort all of us. She never gave up and did what she had to do to give my siblings and I a roof over our heads. We grew up having nothing, but the only thing that we did get was
They were taught combat training, how to defend themselves and fight back. They were taught that their service to Sparta was higher than their families or loved ones, and although they had no right to vote, they managed family estates while their husbands were away. Although the life seemed hard for the Spartans, I believe it was far worse for the Athens. Unlike the Spartan women, the Athenian women had no rights, and were taught only to bear children, cook for the family, and how to weave cloth. Husbands forced them to stay indoors.
Finally, the cruel punishment of the workers in the workplace is seen in the previously mentioned, “Concentration of Industry, and Machinery in the United States,” Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science. “They [the labor class] reproach the machine with exhausting the physical powers of the laborer; . . . [t]hey reproach it with demanding such continued attention that it enervates, and of leaving no respite to the laborer, through the continuity of its movement .
The Battle of Blair Mountain was “the largest armed rebellion in America since the Civil War” (Grayson, “The Second Civil War...”). Miners in West Virginia rose up against the mine bosses, who were cutting wages and attacking the miners’ unions. Capitalism worked against the interests of the miners. The conditions of the miners were caused by the need of the capitalist mine owners to make profits. The mine owners hired detectives to attack the workers, who were trying to improve their conditions and fight for their rights.
For Jem, it was his aunt. Neither of them went so far as to abuse the boys in any way, but both women kept a tight leash on the boys and lived in the same house as them during some part of their lives. Huck talked about the Widow Douglas, and said “The Widow Douglas, she took me for her son, and allowed she would sivilize me; but it was rough living in the house all the time, considering how dismal regular and decent the widow was in all her ways; and so when I couldn’t stand it no longer, I lit out.” (Page
During the beginning of the war Venet’s writing suggests that many didn’t know quite what to do. However, as time lingered on many women abolitionists both young and old began to find their role in different important movements that had a key focus on emancipation. Further on in the book Venet concentrates her writing on a woman by the name of Anna Elizabeth Dickinson. Regarded as the “Abolition’s Joan of Arc,” Dickinson would become one of the most “popular women lecturers of the abolitionist cause” (Venet 37). Forced in to work due to her father’s death, Dickinson obtained the ability to connect with the working class.
Factories were paying far too little for someone to feed their whole family for that little, so many either would die or would turn to crime to survive; these laborers wanted equality. Men, women, and children were working and got employed in factories to work, and the dangerous and strenuous labor that children were put through to help the family expense caused many young children to die. Workers individually could not stop corporations, but collectively they could make an impact on their wages. The corporations eventually had to succumb to the pressure of labor supplies because the National Trade Union convinced the majority of the labor force to work from 12 hours a day to 10 hours. After the labor unions won, workers worked less, and they still had the same salary.
