Across the Wire: Poverty, Violence, and Corruption Numerous people are ignorant of the horrors the people on the Mexican side of the boarder are forced to endure on a daily basis. In Luis Alberto Urrea’s Across the Wire, he gives his personal experiences while he volunteers on the Mexican side of the border. Individuals attempting to cross the border, do so with hopes of better lives and opportunities, because most are unemployed and live under impoverished conditions. Many are unsuccessful in their attempts at crossing the border, and as a result they are sent back. This caused a vast population of poverty stricken adults to live in horrific conditions.
The model eliminated the Glass-Steagall legislation, which prevented large firms from making risky financial investments. Deregulation is the key to runaway equality and deregulation allowed it to happen (Leopold, p. 35). Lastly, reducing government social spending eliminated many safety net programs that aided and protected workers and families during tough economic times. The cutting of safety net programs does the exact opposite of what the Better Business Climate model promised. The model is supposed to bring renewed prosperity to the United States but it brought more inequality and stripped safety net programs that actually helped most Americans.
This proves that the stereotype that Mexicans are lazy and terrible workers is completely ridiculous. There is a stereotype that Mexicans/ Hispanic Americans are uneducated just because they don’t speak English. Of course, if you’re new to the country you won’t know the language at first. Surprisingly, a study shows that many more Hispanic Americans are better at speaking in English than they were 10 years ago. Hispanic Americans are known to be very poor.
The lack of food is the reason so many colonists died of hunger. The second reason to why so many colonists died was because of occupations. There were too many gentleman in May 1607 and January 1608 that did not want to do any work at all. One surgeon in 1607 and 1608 was not good.That was bad because there was only one surgeon to help to cure so many people injured. In 1608, there was 51 occupations unknown that really did nothing as well.
They did not have enough money or want to spend extra money to provide proper facilities to children. Poor-ventilation: this occurred due to tuberculosis (which occurred due to malnutrition) Lack of food: The children were not fed properly. Lack of clothing: Children were not provided appropriate clothing, but summer clothes during the winter which caused them to freeze to death No fire exits: many children died due to this. Since the schools refused to spend money on fire escapes and sprinklers they built poles outside the windows. During the fire the windows are locked and many children were not able to reach it in time.
I believe that their expectations were much too high as the government was struggling too. Many people had no solution to their problems and we can easily see that this era was horrible. The economy had been damaged as the PM’s refused to provide work for people who were jobless as they didn’t believe it was their responsibility. More people from communities began turning to churches as a way to aid their struggles. I believe that I would never want to live during this time, there were a high amount of savages fending for themselves and their families.
This negatively affected the people who were migrating and were in direct competition for jobs with longer- established residents and would keep creating conflict with those people. “Many people were not able to make a living in drought-stricken regions and were forced to migrate to other areas in search of a new livelihood. ("Drought in the Dust Bowl") Many people had no choice to leave which affected them in a personal way because they had to forced to leave in search of a new livelihood because they will mostly not survive through the Dust Bowl.”In addition, because of poverty and high unemployment, migrants added to local relief efforts, sometimes overburdening relief and health agencies. ” ("Drought in the Dust Bowl")People were super poor and were not making enough money to pay for things while migrating so this would affect people and families and it was too much for relief and health agencies.“The poor economy displaced more than just farmers as refugees to California; many teachers, lawyers, and small business owners moved west with their families during this time. ( "Dust Bowl")The wealth and
The “dirty 30s” was not the time to be a farmer. The Great Plains were very unpredictable when it came to weather and natural disasters. Farmers were constantly battling against mother nature’s tragedies. Because machinery was not very advanced farmers and ranch hands spent numerous laboring hours in their dying fields. Crop prices also plunged to an ultimate low during this time.
With the increase of population the number of vehicles in the urban areas will also increase, but if the land area won’t get expand it will lead to traffic congestion. This is a huge negative impact on the country’s economy. The main negative impact from traffic congestion is the wastage of fuel, energy. Other than that; wastage of time, difficulties in parking, less efficiency and effectiveness are some negative impacts of traffic congestions. • HIGH MAINTANANCE COST To meet the higher urbanization and higher population new infrastructure has to be provided and as well as has to upgrade the current
The men could no longer hunt or farm as irrigation was difficult and the soil was not fertile. The men could not provide for their families even in the way the Anglo’s had previously forced them to do so. Women were still supposed to go through a series of domestic lessons to learn how to take care of the children and the home. Everyone on the reservations became poor and malnourished as they had to line up once a month to try to get their ration of food for their families (Hudson, Lecture 18). It was demeaning and an insult to the Natives’ sovereignty.
