Reason being, the Latin American elites sold out their own people, which led to a separation in social class. The people who were kicked out of their lands were turned into workers on the plantations. The owners of the sugar refineries were a prime example of this, they utterly dominated the rural economy and forced the native population to work for them for low wages. “Their wages were low, and they earned them only part of the year” (198). This was a negative impact to the native people due to the fact that their wages weren't enough to even get by, not only was it not enough, they didn't receive income for the whole year which meant they would go without money for a large sum of time.
The "illegal" ideology has always been disgusting to me but, I didn’t really know how it was built. Nativists were powerful enough to start the "illegal" status towards Mexicans. It is humiliation to think America only let in a limited number of Mexican workers in the US. It was also ridiculously expensive to legally cross the border, which was not an option to Mexicans due to their economic fall, and all of the discrimination involving looking for a job. The border has always been seen as an evil place to go through because the way people were treated there; and still do to this day.
Unfortunately, the implication of Spanish culture still has impacted today’s Mexican society. 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.
This means that they whole future was determined by their race and it's unfair to have different jobs that are good or bad determined by the color of their skin it's unfair that Asians had the worst job while other races had good jobs. Working conditions were also bad because they had to hike to go to work and some had bad backs.According to source one it says “. Then had to hike up to the field for a long day of backbreaking labor A day in the field usually lasted 10 hours and a day at the mills lasted 12”. This means that some had very bad backs from working too much and having to hike to get back home these workers can get even more hurt if they keep on working but some might still do it to support their
The Jungle exposed the horrific work conditions, the poor food quality, and the deceitfulness of the business owners. Working in Packingtown, Chicago was a nightmare because 99% of the jobs were very deleterious. Finding jobs were very scarce and there were not a lot of jobs that were great, so people had to take anything they could get. These jobs had no safety precautions or safety rules; employees got seriously injured daily and death would happen occasionally as an effect of on the job accidents. Some of the jobs were just detrimental to the employees’ health even without the accidents.
During 1942-1964 many Mexican immigrants were “given” the “opportunity” to enter the United States in order to labor and help the United States economic industry. For many immigrants the bordering country was seen as an exceptional place that offered great opportunities but at the same time many family difficulties. The Bracero Program during the 20th century for many Mexicans was seen as an exceptional deal that offered immigrants and infinite amount of opportunities to succeed; however, in Ejemplar y sin igual we realize that the Bracero Program in reality was not the “exceptional program” everyone thought. In Ejemplar y sin igual, Elizabeth Rosas mentions that “an entire generation of children experienced uniquely difficult childhoods because
For most people, Ellis Island was a wonderful place that would be the entry point beginning of their new life, but for some others it was a miserable experience. The unfortunate people that were denied entry to the U.S. for various reasons, (sometimes because of their occupation; if they were contract laborers, polygamists, paupers, convicted criminals, anarchists, and other times because of a health or financial problem), would have a miserable time at Ellis Island (only 2 percent of the immigrants arriving were denied entry). They would have just wasted a huge amount of money, wasted a lot of time,
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.
They also began to be scared of the police on the north side of the border because illegal immigration has become as a problem in the USA. And many of the illegal immigrant are sending back where they came from. They really want to get I to the USA to get a good job and earn some money to support their family and friends. Pedro and Manuel began to feel thirsty and they fall to sleep . The next day they wake up because of some people.
However they also realised that sugar was an incredibly difficult crop to grow because of the high temperatures, long hours and physical exertion needed which, unsurprisingly, lead to many Europeans not wanting to do the job – they required another solution. They initially enslaved the native population (Native Americans) but it became clear that this was not a permanent solution – the natives did not have the skills to farm and also began to contract diseases that the Europeans had brought with them such as measles and smallpox, so many Native Americans were literally worked to death. The next source of labour came from indentured servants who were men and women working for a specified amount of time, these were often criminals working for their freedom. However this also proved to be only a temporary solution due to the nature of the servants leaving after they had done their time. This left only one option in the minds of the Europeans; African slaves.
