Human trffickers are also human beings and they too feel a need to survive in their environment. For example, if they have no skills to get a decent job, no access to education, or simply put, a lack of capital, they will find a way to survive even if it means going out of norms and rules to exploit victims. In India, there is a high unemployment rate of 3.6% of the total labour force, and no minimum wage policy implemented, exacerbating the problem of poverty. Given the different amounts of resources in a capitalist system, the more powerful groups will use their power to exploit groups with less power. Put in context, human trafficking cartels have more knowledge and a wide range of networks to successfully exploit and take advantage of victims who have less knowledge and who are vulnerable.
The culture of poverty, according to recent research, entails collective norms and values that lead people to poverty or make them remain entangled in the poverty trap. The culture of poverty is attributed to the behavior of the poor and their attitudes (Bell et al, 2013). This culture is seen to affect majorly the black Americans, who according to research fail to succeed in school and later in life. This poverty trickles down to generations, resulting in the culture of dependency.
Q1 Poverty is defined by Parker as living in a smell that never leaves meaning a life with many unfortunate circumstances. Many people perceive poverty as being tired that is looking for ways to fulfill basic needs but hard to achieve for example a poor person cannot meet the medical needs of the family nor support kids for school leading the person to quit the job. Poverty is also perceived as being dirt meaning that poverty makes the person incapable of buying even soap to clean for clothes hence the person resorts for washing clothes without soap or save a piece for the baby diapers. The person can get to work clean but the challenges in him still never get clean in the heart. Poverty is asking for help that is the poor person could barely
During the Great Depression, many people were desperate for a job, food, shelter, and security, all of which are standards expected in the modern world. However, in the midst of an economic crisis, the people who had stability despised those who could not achieve a steady way of life. Farmers who hoarded the food that could keep people alive would not help those in need. By selfishly withholding aid, the farmers failed humanity in a way, “that topples all our success,” showing that what they did was not right (Steinbeck 349). When faced with the injustice of people being too poor to afford what they need to survive, those who had resources were morally obligated to help feed those

There was terrible wealth distribution to the rich were excessively rich whilst the poor where extremely poor. They would work in factories for log hours, which had no regard for health and safety. Therefore, work was very dangerous. They had an unbearable workload to earn a stable living. Due to their poor pay, they would live in cramped and humid houses making them extremely vulnerable to diseases like pneumonia.
The other represented example of social injustice in the book is the treatment of people who had little income and no education. People lost lots of things during the depression which ruined their lives and quality of life. People are then born into poverty. When people grow up without money, they must leave school early to go to work to help pay for things. When they do this, they lose so much education that they could have received.
Most of families were facing lots of great challenge of their lives, jobs and money problems. At that time, everyone was in desperate need of money. There are a lot of agricultural products that can 't be sold out and can only be reduced to suitable with the environment and the needs of the self, so the excessive agricultural production and agricultural prices fell. Farmers’ incomes fell, the farmers went bankrupt. “750,000 farms were lost between 1930 and 1935 through bankruptcy and
Though this method increased the number of jobs available, it also decreased wages as well as poor rates.(Nationalarchives.gov.uk, 2018). There was a poor rate in wages by which employers were encouraged to employ individuals for less than the living wage. The poor rates were meant to help mostly two groups of people. One was the impotent poor or undeserving poor’ who were unable to support themselves as it wasn’t their fault they were poor such as the old and sick and the able-bodied (deserving poor) who were idle and mostly judged because they were reluctant to work (Longmate, 2003). Children who worked in the workhouse received harsh treatment making the poor hate working

Sociologists have determined, the predominant cause of a revolution in the world is poor economic conditions, where people are not able to get adequate income to take care of their bare necessities to feed themselves and make the ends meet. Hence, many resort to illegal activities, particularly in highly populated areas, where massive competition for jobs exists. As can be concluded, it is inevitable that eventually many of the people who commit illegal acts get caught by law enforcement authorities, and subsequently end up in jail. Accordingly, due to the instability of the economic and political growth, many people feel obligated to move elsewhere, not only to seek employment to support their families, but to find a better and safer environment to live in. This shows how resilient American people truly were.
The banks where going bankrupt due to many loans they gave out. The stock market started to crash because people started to borrow money they invested to survive. Depression was a very hard time but it took all these other factor to cause the Great Depression to
Middle class families are calling out for help. If the U.S. government does not take immediate action all of America will suffer. When the middle class turns poor the wealthy will have no one helping them become richer. The wealthy are too ignorant to acknowledge that the middle class is suffering.
He tells the reader about his life being turned upside down after making one childish mistake. The greaser struggle more than the Socs because they are poor, the Socs jump them, and people think that they are trash. The greasers do not have money or own very much. “We’re poorer than the Socs an the middle class.”
In this Socratic seminar I believe that with all the points that have been given I believe that sweatshops make things worse for developing nations. many of these devolving nations want to get ahead sweatshops do provide jobs but the income is very low. As well these job conditions are very poor so these people actually could get worse because of their health in these sweatshops. With the little pay these workers get it 's mostly spent on food which after that leaves them broke or even sometimes not enough to even purchase food.
