Economic disadvantage can rip away a child’s chance of success from a very young age through deficiencies in physical, mental, and psychological health. Children born to mothers living below the federal poverty line are 80% more likely to be born underweight, and are therefore disadvantaged from the very beginning. These physical shortcomings translate into a child’s cognitive ability, leading to poverty ridden children struggling throughout their academic careers. The struggle many of these children experience deter them from pursuing higher levels of education, and in turn, these young adults struggle to find jobs that provide an adequate income that supports their family, continuing the vicious cycle of poverty. Without some form of outside assistance, many of these children will never experience the American
The accumulation in population added onto the problem by leaving more people to be replaced by machines and eventually become poor. This generation brought many people and there wasn’t a sure reason on why, but the size multiplied by as much as three sizes (Avery 123). Most explanation on why population built was because of longer life span, immigration, and survival of infants (Avery 120). The men tried to get occupations, but all of the leftover positions were unskilled and still left them not being able to provide anything for their families. Wages were so low that even when one worked, they barely had enough to live on, so without a job there was no money to fall back on.
Out of all the problems leading up to this future overpopulation has got to be the top culprit. Overpopulation for humans causes a chain reaction. Having to many people leads to a larger need for many things including resources, space, and jobs. Even though we see a good depiction of the future with the movie soylent green we also have a modern day example, China. China has the highest population in the world, encompassing 1.2 billion or twenty one percent of the world's population.
• Children with ill heath on a regular basis can develop much more slower, this may cause longer term issues such as failure to grow or thrive. • Families who move from different areas and school most of their young life do not have consistency, this could be travelers,
Would you want hard working families and people to get underpaid for their hard work? Well for most people the answer is not clear to them. Minimum wage has been talked upon by many people for almost a century now. Minimum wage has been increasing by a few dollars here and there for years, but many people are not satisfied with the current wage that it’s at right now and want it increased. There are some people that are totally against raising minimum wage because it can lead to losing jobs, but besides that it can make many people and families get out of debt.
Welfare has decreased the percentage of people in poverty by a significant amount and will continue to do so (NCPA). Without welfare, many people would be in desperate need of money and could start doing illegal stuff just to get what they need. People wouldn’t be able to get medical needs to help themselves. Everyone would get sick because sick people would be walking around town and in buildings. Children would get hungry and some might even not be able to go to school.
Social mobility is very strong relationship between high levels of income inequality and lower level of social mobility. High income children more likely to get a high salary, and pay lower income people are more likely to be those of children. The key research are the research shows that the whole of human life existing inequalities and lack of contact between social mobility. The high inequality and low social mobility when looking at the two kids and adults concerned. This linkage is stronger than links between social mobility and poverty.
America also has a dropout rate of 6.5 in 2014. The dropout rate is caused by many things differing from person to person. One theory is that actually that students are just not doing well, so they actually just choose to drop out. Another well-known reason for the higher dropout rate is because of a poor family structure. Could be either a person got pregnant or the family at home just needs more help so rather than the child going to school to get a better job they are sent to work at a young age to help provide for their
Although population growth rate has now been controlled, the problem of overpopulation is not yet resolved, and the policy has brought in many social and economic problems.

Adults who are mentally or physically ill are also more likely to be depressed and abuse substances, therefore making them less likely to work and have a steady income. When children are relying on their parents for food to meet their nutritional needs and the parents can’t provide things can get dangerous. Although the causes of food insecurity are often misinterpreted, so are the government assistance
