A new study by the Community Service Society in New York City estimated that only half (51.8 percent) of the African American men in that city were employed in 2003, compared to Latino men, 65.7 percent of whom were employed, and white men, 75.7 percent of whom were employed [.The study 's author, Mark Levitan, told the New York Times that this was the lowest rate of employment among African American men he had observed since 1979 . Levitan noted, "We 're left with a very big question.… Is this fundamentally a cyclical problem or is it more deeply structural? I fear that it is more deeply structural" .Racial gaps in male employment have been demonstrated in the Midwest, too, and in many inner cities. In Chicago, general Black-White health disparities are actually increasing.Levitan M. A crisis in Black male employment: unemployment and joblessness in New York City, 2003.

People were sick, but still those who left were cowards. There are many reasons to stay, for example, the illness and death chart, it states that only 50% of people became ill. (document A) As an estimate, 3,989 out of 8,000 people were sick in 1778. Only 1,800 died, that is not very many to die of illness. Another reason to stay would be in the essay by Thomas Paine. It calls those who quit “The summer soldier and the sunshine warrior” , this was because they could not handle the winter, they could only last the summer.
Within the data for the women who belong to the Medina Early Childhood Parent Teacher Association (MECPTA), women of child-bearing age, and the residents of Medina County, there is an overall obesity rate among the women. More than 80% of adults do not meet the guidelines for aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities. Only 10% of the activities within the MECPTA are active and physical. Physical activity decreases by an average of 1.4 hours per week after women have children. Within Medina County, there are 17 parks, but they are rarely used by the MECPTA.
Currently, there is nowhere in our nation that someone working full-time minimum wage can afford housing. I have, as your loving Dictator, increased minimum wage, but that still puts much of the housing out of reach for people. Something as basic as housing should be affordable and within reach for anyone. The rising cost of housing has far outpaced the rise of income, resulting in either abandoning people to the streets or so in debt just trying to keep a roof over their head they slip a bit more behind each month, so I plan on changing that. Government housing is one solution.
no high school diploma). Due to their low success rate with getting hired, they find an alternative to earn their income. “36% of street youth earn money by panhandling, 19% break and enter or sell drugs, 18% receive social assistance, 17% have paid employment, and 10% do sex trade work. [...] 31% including men and women reported engaging in street prostitution at least once in their lives”(1999 Documentary Toronto Youth Homelessness). In the interview on youtube by Stephen Stills, a homeless teen in Toronto explains that he will do almost anything for 20 dollars and makes about 100 dollars a day doing very inhumane
Cause the businesses the gamble on the defends they choose. Nationwide, about 62% of people in jail are not serving time they’re just waiting for justice to be served in their case. I can't believe that the numbers are so high and that there is no one that can help those mothers, fathers, grandmas, and more. I feel that it is breaking the 8th amendment because for that person $500 is excessive. That $500 is probably their only money they have to spend on bills.
This is the most common path into American residency. More than 25 percent of green cards issued in 2007 were spouses of American citizens. Between 2006 and 2007 there were more green cards issued to spouses of U.S citizens than there were issued to immigrants granted for work reasons. Marriage fraud, for the purpose of immigration gets little notice because less can be done about it. State department and Department of Homeland Security have no resources to fight this issue.
This can be seen as only 48% of USA adults in 2013 were able to get the appointment on the same or next day when they were sick. This shows being a specialist care-focused health care system can limit access to healthcare for 50% of USA adults which is a really a big disadvantage. This could be due to specialist care being really expensive which has been discussed in Bradley’s case. Also, if you are not insured then it gets really hard and almost impossible to be able to consult a specialist decreasing access to a range of people (Mossialos et al., 2016). Being a country with no gatekeeping, USA seems to have an advantage of having greater clinical quality of care as the patients can self-refer to specialists.
In 2016, over 106,958 crimes against children were recorded, including murder, physical assault and rape. 75% of India’s population earn less than 5,000 Indian rupees a month, that is 78 American dollars. A person has to physically look to find this information because globalization has covered it with the festival of colours, or Holi, and tours of natural sights away from the overpopulated cities and towns. While some would argue that globalization is the reason these problems are known to some, one could counteract that by asking why globalization hasn’t done anything to stop it. People want to see India, but not the india where less than 5% of people pay income tax, they want Henna on their hands and feet and to swim in the Indian Ocean.
According to the human development report , 1997 , It stated that "No society treats its women as well as its men". The issues of equality in the workplace and affirmative action have been hovering over the working world 's head for many years now. This problem is considered one of the most problems affecting the society , due to its penetration in many fields. Equality should be achievied , not only because it 's fair and it 's the right thing , but also because equality is vitally important to the productions of nations. So It cannot be denied that gender inequality in workplaces is the most negatively effective on women , because at workplaces , employees should be treated on how they work not either they 're men or women.
There has been some cases when the illegal immigrants have been getting fake or copied others social security. There are a couple theories of how they get social security. Either they’re using forged social security cards, or they only pay if they have an everyday job. They cost American taxpayers $10 billion every year (Miller 35-37). The majority of Immigrants that come here illegally pay no federal taxes or state income taxes and they don’t intend to.
And the people that were affected more were the blacks and Mexican. The blacks earned very little. From the Digital History Textbook under the human meaning of the great depression, “But no groups suffered more from the depression than African and Mexican Americans. Macon County, Alabama, home of Booker T. Washing con’s famous Tuskegee Institute, most black families lived in homes without wooden floors or windows or sewage disposal and subsisted on salt pork, cornbread and molasses. In come average less than a dollar a day.” This statement is showing how difficult it was for families and their income that was less than average was a height of concern and how distressed it was in regards to employment.
Before 2016, millennials rarely turned out to vote and had little to no involvement in politics. Before the current race for President of the United States, millennials had little reason to be involved with politics or vote. Asma Khalid states that “In fact, millennials continue to have the lowest voter turnout of any age group. Only about 46 percent [of millennials] voted in the last presidential election…” Khalid also points out that another reason millennial voting was so low in the previous elections was because millennials were not of age to vote. Rachel Gossen says that “By 2016, 93 million millennials will be of voting age and 81 million will be eligible voters,
Although there has been a decline in the number of homeless Veterans since this announcement, the current glide path suggests they will miss the goal unless services are expanded and more success is achieved. In fact, in 2012, VA served more than 240,000 Veterans who were homeless or at risk of becoming homeless—21 percent more than the year before. These numbers suggest the VA is becoming more effective and is serving more of the demographic in need, but it also paints an unacceptable picture of nearly a quarter million Veterans who were faced with life on the streets that year. More disturbing than this is the fact the percentage of homeless female Veterans with children increases each year, despite current VA
The Declaration of Sentiments, a document written by activists Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucrietia Mott, discusses injustices towards woman and the rights that have been withheld from them, such as voting and denied admittance into colleges. Stanton and Mott want readers, primarily men, to understand, to take action, and to fight against the opression that has been put on women of all ages, race and religion in the United States. Without the help of Stanton and Mott, womens rights may have been an overlooked issue yesterday and today, therefore, their message is incontestably crucial. To Stanton and Mott, women were created equal to men, and to further their declaration of this equality, they state that the rights that have been unfairly
