The staff that stayed over got overloaded with the work, which caused the high turnover. La Alianza couldn’t afford to pay higher salaries to retain the staff, due to the low rates of reimbursements from the DSS. The inexperienced and newly graduated case workers had a heavy caseload. The newly graduated case workers failed to find the basic investigation details, such as if parents were lying, or if children were being abused or not. In addition, DSS required time-consuming paperwork with the extremely heavy workload.
People were afraid and concerned since they had a major insufficiency of jobs, supplies and shelter. Many companies began to enforce wage cutbacks and increased workload. Relief was not being offered to all the unfortunate Canadians who did not have a job. Many people were laid off from factories which meant that supplies were scarce as not many people could afford to provide for their family’s, people turned to the government to find a solution. I believe that their expectations were much too high as the government was struggling too.
Typically, one does not think about unemployment being a social problem, unless you are someone that is unemployed or has experienced unemployment. Unfortunately, unemployment is becoming a serious social problem today in society. Many people who happen to be unemployed are more than capable of working they just do not have the proper experience or flexibility that a job requires. Many are also unemployed because there are not enough jobs for everyone. The unemployment rate is rising every day and the something needs to be done to stop this.
Those are some of the reasons why the American Dream is too out of reach for most people. One reason that makes it very tricky to achieve the American Dream, is due to the fact of how much it costs to live and survive life every day on a normal basis. The basic necessities of life are a huge cost in itself, especially with the wages nowadays. That causes the people with the poor wages to struggle
After bills and rent are paid for, people are left with nothing or next to nothing. Over time inflation will cause it to become harder to live because prices on everything will keep rising. When the minimum wage isn’t raised to compensate for inflation then people become stuck and are unable to move up in society because they have to pay more in order to live. If it costs more to live then minimum wage jobs become useless to move up in society because people are unable save money. Thus, minimum wage jobs will not help people move up in society and will continue to increase they wealth inequality between the rich and the
He talks about how an economy of a country affects poverty and how it can be eradicated. Galbraith quotes “A vast number of people both in town and country, he noted, had insufficient food, clothing and houseroom; they were: in “overworked and undertaught weary and careworn, without quiet and without leisure.” Large amounts of people do not have adequate food, clothing and shelter. They have been working hard for long hours, doing overtimes but they are not being paid enough. They are not getting the wages they deserve because they are illiterate and lack skills. They are fatigued, miserable, depressed and worried because they don’t have enough money to earn a living for themselves and their family.
Both of them faced the hardships of how to make a living. They had to make sacrifices in order to try and keep their house, pay their bills and everything else as well. The Neumann’s unfortunately had harder times than the Stanley’s did. Mrs. Neumann ended up having to work more than one job and the hours did not match up with what her
Hinton, because they get jumped, lack of money, get put down by socs, and have titles over their heads. The Greasers have difficult lives because they get jumped and are always getting put down by the Socs. The Greasers have difficult lives because they have to work for what they want or need but still have trouble make ends meet. Many people believe the Socs have difficult lives because they have a lot of pressure on them and do not have a lot of support but they are wrong because the Greasers struggle more because they are always having to work for the thing they want or need. The Greasers struggle more because they do not just have to work but have to deal with the Socs constantly judging
There are many economic and sociologic problems that face our society today. Unemployment, health care, and a failing educational system are some challenging topics in our society today. The issues that face today’s generation are unique to the pressures of the times and the complexity of how we live. Homelessness is at an all-time high in our country today and it is a situation that effects people world-wide. Being homeless is when you do not have a permanent place to live.
And inequality is discriminating a person in all spheres of life which gives a rise to sense of deprivation. Again the responsibility shifts to the government, if a government is economically instable then it is hard for it to make and implement policies which will benefit the people. By far the biggest factor responsible for poverty after government’s policy is the problem of unemployment. Unemployment further worsens the living style of the people and they become economically deprived due to which they are unable to cope with the advancing living standards. Access to quality education also causes poverty because without education any person in the world cannot gain access to a good job and that a person has to work on low
In the early 1900s, The U.S. had faced a lot of problem. The overcrowded cities as a result of too much immigration was one of the major problem. There were too much competition to find a job for most of those who weren’t wealthy, so most of them have to work even in the worst condition with the least wages. The working condition was terrible there were too many workers, and business owners who were interested to pay the least wages to get the most profit. Workers had to work hard to keep their job and be able to pay their bills.
We need to understand that it’s a hard life living in their countries not just because gangs are worse over there but also because there’s no jobs available to get a lot of money to keep families alive. I think that if we sent all this millions of people, The U.S.A is about to go down because we don’t know how undocumented people work so hard in the fields, construction and lots of works that they do for us because we can not do it or
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.
This is another reason Hispanics had challenges, because they had to adjust to very brand new and unfamiliar things in a very fast period. They did not have much time to settle down because they were so busy with everything. That probably made things 10x WORSE because they were not able to settle, familiarize themselves, and on top of that, they had to adjust to so many new things so fast. I also found out that countless immigrants continue to struggle to make a successful life for themselves in this country. This adds onto the fact that they are struggling everyday, just to make a living for themselves, when
Then there is the economy itself that contributes to the homelessness population. With increasing costs on goods and services, the limited amount of jobs available in the United States, and the increase of natural disasters among the world, people are finding it harder and harder to get by, and are often living paycheck to paycheck
