The lack of healthcare, food stamps, and well-paying jobs can result in people turning towards crime because of issues such as mental health, physical health, and employment options. One reason that people turn to crime is because of the lack of healthcare. Even when healthcare is available to people, a large portion of them are not able to
Of that forty percent, the majority does not have a high school diploma or a GED. The lack of education and the fact that prisoners have a record hanging over their heads, gives them a much greater fight in societies' eyes upon release to find a job which would pay them a living wage and due to the stigma attached with those who have records, the social shunning makes it more difficult and less likely that they will become a functioning member of society. With these disadvantages and their exposure to harder criminals, it makes one think of the life they had, and/or the life that the other criminal had before they were incarcerated. They want that old lifestyle again; depending on if they believed that it was, in their opinion,
This means that those charged with lesser crimes are pushed to the back of their caseloads. Public defenders are overworked and underpaid meaning that many times they cannot do their job to the best of their abilities. Sadly because of this system, many of their clients sit in holding cells for months or years, awaiting for a trial that is continually pushed off by their attorney. While the system of free public defenders seemed like an equal foot for criminal clients to stand on in the justice system, it is in reality a very messy and disorganized system that overlooks those without the most pressing issue. Gideon V. Wainright was a landmark case, arguably one of the most important cases of the sixties.
This quote shows how upper class citizen had very little advantage over the plague just like everybody else. The Bubonic Plague had a grip on the Elizabethan time period and even though the upper class had very little advantage to the plague, it was the lower classes huge disadvantage. “Only the wealthy would receive the ministrations of an Elizabethan Physician”(Alchin).

Relief was not being offered to all the unfortunate Canadians who did not have a job.

Wages are so low that one must work at least two jobs but with housing prices being so high, it makes find a place to live extremely hard. Washington and California have some of the highest minimum wage standards but even that is not a livable wage.

Poverty and deprivation were common within the Black community as the government did not offer them good jobs nor profit them in anyway. Malcolm X stated that after elections, the government employed a few Black individuals big jobs to make it seem like they cared however, they already had jobs and chose to not offer them to those living in poverty. According to Malcolm X, everyone in the room, despite having jobs was still not able to make enough money for their necessities.

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.
