Americans are not the only ones harmed by this subsidization of corn. In recent years, hundreds of thousands of Mexican corn farmers have lost their jobs due to the overabundant inexpensive corn from the United States. As Griselda Mendoza, a local farmer’s daughter, stated, “Before [U.S. subsidized corn], everybody here grew corn. People didn 't make much money, but nobody went hungry” (Darlington, S., Gillespie, P, 2017). Due to the ruination wrought by the cheap corn, Mendoza’s father had to leave to find work, leaving her without a father for a majority of her life.
People barely eat, barely play, and barely get clean clothes because they need help. When we all eat there is people out there is no food for them. In order to eat for them, they need money or people give them the food. However, kids that wait to eat, they weight about 50 pounds or 70 - 50, and that is sad. For instance, if you don 't eat you could get really sick and die cause if you don 't eat in 7 or more than you would starve to death because you will be hungry for b7 or more days.
Instead, it was the monumental dust storms that terrorized the inhabitants of the Southern Plains. As a result from the drought and dust storms, farming was all but impossible, leaving many families to rely on the federal government and relief organizations just to stay alive. Also occurring
I grew up poor. Because of my parents and their families being refugees and living in the depths of North Philadelphia, they were looked down upon, “out of sight, out of mind.” My parents would receive glaring eyes every time they pulled out and swiped their food stamp card. Growing up, my parents constantly shared their hardships and their journey to the Land of the Free, just so their children can have an easier life than they had. Since they were capable of work (10 years+), they were forced to work under the blazing sun in rice fields that swarmed with mosquitos just so they could also provide for their family. Some nights, they would go without eating, days without food and sometimes clean water.
The Dust Bowl Introduction Theodore Roosevelt said, “When you’re at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on.” The Dust Bowl was a very bad time for the United States because it was also during The World’s War and the United States was also already in a bad state with the Great Depression going on. The Dust Bowl was a time of economic hardship because people did not know how to stop the problem, people were losing land, the government did not know how to stop the Dust Bowl. Dry Conditions The Dust Bowl was started by farmers growing wheat crops. The reason the dust storms came was because of the wind (Worster, 2017) . The soil was very dry and was cracking from the grass being taken away the grass was holding the earth together.
As previously mentioned, food prices had deflated causing farmers to not be able to make a profit off of their land. Subsequently, they would not sell the crops that they produced, which was not a lot because along with the Great Depression the Dust Bowl was also taking place. The Dust Bowl was a massive drought in the middle portion of the country, while it did not affect Alabama where the story took place, it was a detriment to many families. As a consequence of the Dust Bowl many farms produced a small amount of crop, and it contributed to the money deflation of Great
Because the government had sold all this land to farmers they were all planting and turning and working the land all the time because it was a good job when it was done right, with The Great Depression on the horizon people were working hard to make every little cent they could (Staff). The Dust Bowl was hard on a lot of people, but with courage America survived the Dust Bowl. The Dust Bowl, which happened because of overworking the land and drought, created many issues, it caused sickness and hardship for the farmers who stayed when the dust hit, and a great migration of people, it also fueled the Great Depression that was already brewing. One of the causes of the Dust Bowl was over working of the land. A post war recession caused these people getting home from work to use a new mechanical farming technique and with these new machines they
The problem is evident because out of Roumieh’s 3,700 detainees, only 721 were serving sentences while the others waited for a trial.” Due to overcrowded prisoners in jails especially in “Roumieh”, parents, relatives, wives and brothers of prisoners are taking laundry of their prisoners to wash them and bring them back. Many prisoners rely on their families to bring them food, cigarettes and chocolate. Also according to the international journalism: “Sometimes the food is infected with bugs and it’s often inedible. For example, today is a chicken dish. If you don’t have money to bribe the officers then you will get something not even close to chicken that you won’t even be able to swallow down,” said Ghorra a media professional and collaborator for The National Campaign.
Many kids are orphaned due to their parents dying from HIV/AIDS and this means that they are now other peoples responsibility, the family member that adopts them may not even have enough money to support themselves this is where children are just left stranded somewhere and the guardian expects them to look after themselves. Many poor families see children as assets because they feel that children especially males are free labour for their farming etc. Therefore they reproduce which leads to overpopulation and them not being able to afford to support their family causing poverty. Illiteracy and lack of education are the main causes of
Unfortunate most people are not aware of this because they think that a ugly looking vegetable mighty not be edible because of the shape, which is unfortunate, because we all what to eat organic food but not aware that natural looking food does not look like plastic shape, and picture perfect, This has force our farmers to trow away thousands of pounds of vegetable away every day because of lack of education that really food does not look like what you sees in magazine. Our grosery store are also responsible for wasting food, most of their unsellable goods are throw into the garbage, they don't even allow their employee to take it home and used, and most of the time don't even donate the food to homeless shelter, they will rather save trow it in the garbage which does not make any sense to me. I find most of the waste that happed are unnecessary, because we can do better as individual and collectively; by taking little time to think about our neighbors that might not have food to feed to their children, and even about homeless men and women that are unfortunately might not have a place to sleep, but when when they get to shelter their is food for them to eat and drinks for them to eat. When i look back to where I was coming from and I know that their is still millions mother and father in my country and here in America that are finding it difficult every day to feeds their families; even if they have two jobs, they might not be able to feeds their children some time. This can happed to any of us, because, we just have hope and pray we don't lose our job.
