The release of harmful gases into the air from factories pollutes the world 's air, doing harm to the environment, further leading to global warming. Then, though it did boost many job opportunities, the living condition of the workers during the industrialization were poor. Company towns owned by business were rented out to employees. The owners forced them to live in isolated communities near workshops and forced them to buy goods with high interests. The cities were poorly constructed and crowded with people and residents.
Many young children whose family practice native customs are afraid to reveal that they are not “pure” according to Spanish standards. The consequence of such injustice is so tremendous that it impossible to put into words: so many people are suffering just because their ancestors had been conquered by a much more powerful nation. It is unfair that they have to suffer they way. I truly feel sorry for those who can’t put food on the food table every night because there are no job opportunities for them because they aren’t true Spaniards. Unless they people of Mexico don’t change their thinking soon, it shall never
Relationships between the settlers and the Native Americans had always been weak, even with the neighboring tribes that signed treaties with Virginia. The lower class settlers used the Native Americans as a scapegoat- blaming all their financial problems on their presence in the colony (Bacon). After Berkeley gave away fertile land as land grants, settlers became increasingly angry at the Native Americans, and tried to con their way into stealing their land in order to plant tobacco. Settlers accused the Native Americans of multiple crimes, and in his Manifesto, Bacon accused them of murder and theft (Beverly). Accusations spread throughout the colony, and both sides considered the other as being evil or unjust.
Cesar went on a 25 hunger strike to encourage others in his movement against grape growers.. In Document C there is a photograph of Robert Kennedy sitting next to Cesar, the reason for this was having his support would give Chavez more attention about what he was doing. Chavez was willing to sacrifice and die of starvation to prove his point across the world. He began to boycott against California table grapes. In Document D it shows that Cesar “signed a contract with 26 major grape growers in the area, an act that meant some 75 per cent of the state’s growers have now been organized by the UFW.”
The men that were in health care and the sick sometimes could not have “above an egg apiece, and a kettle of boiled garvanzos (a sort of Spanish peas much unlike the English).” This point is argued (Parry & Keith, 3). There was a strong need of medicines to help cure the men. It was so bad that some of the men had to be carried over. There was no doctor or nurse present, so no one was able to help them.
As for the farmers they felt like they were being completely controlled by the government and strongly disliked it. The government would dismiss farmer’s crops being burnt and useless. The government did this to control over production. Not only did the government do this, but also at this time they were working their way from a drought. This was disastrous, and their problems we not fixed.
Throughout the book, Jurgis had to constantly switch jobs because of accidents that laid him off work. No jobs was available to Jurgis except the fertilizer mill. The job at the fertilizer is the worse of it can be, Jurgis describes “...the phosphates soaked in through every pore of jurgis’s skin and in five minutes he had a headache, and in fifteen was almost dazed. the blood was pounding in his brain like an engine’s throbbing ……”(108). The fertilizer mill Jurgis is working at is extremely unsafe.
In conclusion Muckrakers brought change to society by bringing to light what was in the darkness. By exposing how child labor had a negative effect on children and society. The meat packing industry was busted for there unsanitary ways. The railroad was exposed for taking from those who could not fight on their own.
Then, the intolerable fumes from the factory invaded, and poisoned the air and water, which makes it very hard for the Swomee-swans to fly and breathe and the Humming-fish to swim. This is significant because it’s happening in real life too, but people are acting oblivious to it. There are way too many oil and natural gas companies that begin drilling without fully researching and understanding the long-term environmental impact. This is affecting both humans and animals. In conclusion, the Lorax’s message is very important and it is essential that we start to understand it and use it let it affect our decisions before it is too
The working conditions of the laborers working on fruit plantations, clothing workhouses and other factories have be considered barbaric. Worker on plantations seldom receive safety training and often obtain injury while on the clock, either from insufficient training on how to use machines, the chemicals used, or illness from overwork. One could argue that even though these conditions are awful, it is a job and they recieve money to survive, but one could ask whether or not it is worth it. A person could argue that if workers in a first world country worked 12 hour days in such conditions, severe actions would be taken to change the situation. The foreign workers in Asian and South American countries are out of sight, and therefore out of the minds of the consumers living far away from the origin of the products.
There were fights, vandalism of property mainly in the school of “Martin Luther King Junior High School”. There teachers being laid off because the school didn 't have enough money to fund the teachers. The sewage backup, caused by the failure of two pumping stations forces officials at the high school to shut down the furnaces. Even there sports. For example there football field was missing everything.
In the Dust Bowl states when this event was happening the farmer 's field where they planted crops got ruined. “They really needed water so they could start to live there normal lives again and to grow plants. So with all this the farmers were not able to get the water that they needed. Back then for the farmers it was a really big deal. So when the Dust Bowl happened the farmers had to farm which needed to be watered” (National Climate Data Center).
The time of when cotton factories were running was not safe for children or anyone for that matter. This was a time of hiring people to do the dirty work and get hurt. Children working at the mills were beaten, abused, malnourished, and much more. The cotton mills should have never existed with this kind of abuse happening inside the factories. The fact is that these mills were bad for the health of the workers both physically and mentally.
Farm work in America was migratory and seasonal. Migratory workers traveled to different places to find work or seasonal workers only came when they needed help picking crops. So, because they were not permanent workers the camps that they lived in was not pleasant. The camps were made out of burlap, canvas, palm branches, no wooden floors, water was brown with mud: so they were not able to take a shower. The grower did not care about their worker welfare.
The factors that led the three groups for the strike were different in every situation. The miners went on strike because their pay roll were not that good or not that high for live life perfectly. Their working condition not that good, and they wanted their union recognized. The Colorado Fuel and Iron Company also monopolizing them by having to buy good sold at stores run by the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company. In turn the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company also paid the teacher and doctors assigned to the camps.
