It’s crazy how many people are unemployed in the US right now and with people believing there will be an 80% stock market crash in 2016, things could only get worse. It’s certainly hard for many people to keep a job or life while trying to live off of $7.50 an hour. Another issue with this rise in prices and decline in wages has resulted in 1 out of 3 Americans to be
In the midst of the 1850s, California society was under a strong effect of hostile to outsider’s act. It was known as the Foreign Miners Tax and the showing viably forced overpowering expense accumulation on the migrant workers. The act also demanded every foreign miner to pay $20 U.S. dollars each month. Due to the heavy amount of taxation, many Chinese miners refused to pay the $20 tax and left the States. The increasing number of Chinese miners leaving the country due to the Foreign Miner’s Tax, the act was then repealed in 1851 (Natasha Rivero, 2010).
According to Ganzel, it was common for families in the Midwest to only eat one-dish meals and most families relied on chicken eggs for food (Ganzel, 2003). Ganzel also stated that kids often wore clothes made from flour sacks and dust pneumonia killed a lot of people across the Midwest (Ganzel, 2003). Parents would use flour sacks instead of cloth to make their clothes for their kids because they did not have to pay for the flour sacks. Farmers and their families would inhale the dust in the air and this would lead to a build-up of grit in their lungs eventually causing dust pneumonia. According to Roop, daily life was very hard for people that lived during The Dust Bowl (Roop, 2012, p.26).
Homelessness in China Homelessness is a problem world-wide. Yet, all of the reasons people become homeless are unknown. Bankruptcy, unemployment, family troubles and illness are many known causes. China is an overpopulated country, with a horrendous number of homeless women, children and men. China is the country with the highest number of recorded homeless beings, next to the United States.
We live fairly okay for these times. Alcohol is not much of a demand for consumers since it is now legal and not many people can afford it. With that said, father’s business is nowhere near as well as it had been ten years ago, but we still make enough money to survive, but we live on the streets. There is nothing thing I despise more than Tuesdays. Since the economy crashed, we lost all of our savings, and are $13,000 in debt.
Scientists found out that natural disasters affect human performance. They showed that after an earthquake, people started to get more depressed, stressed and anxious, causing the traffic fatalities to increase a lot, leading to more deaths in that area. Also, the Pompeii volcano in the year 79 that left more than 25,000 people buried in ashes. That natural disaster almost destroyed all the population in Italy, but somewhere able to survive and escape. "Scientists estimate that more than 260,000 people have died in the past 300 years from volcanic eruptions and their aftermath” (Natural Disasters & Weather).
The supposedly great dynasty that could last for thousands of years fell just four years after the emperor (Shi Huangdi) died. The two ministers that covered up the death of Shi Huangdi assumed power and imposed much oppressive laws. This accumulated the rage of the Chinese with many uprisings being formed yet this news wasn’t disseminated to them. Thus Han Dynasty was formed. (Denlinger,
shantytowns across southern Nepal (Collins). According to Aljazeera, upon entering the United States many refugees have “never seen a washing machine or a refrigerator before” and had to be shown “how to flush a toilet, turn on the shower and in case of an emergency, borrow a phone to dial 911”, few had every used a phone (Kulman and Tsukii). Many Bhutanese have achieved prosperity since arriving in the States; sadly the scares of a tragic past have led to staggeringly high rates of suicide among the refugee communities. Northeast Ohio Media Group reported the suicide rates of Bhutanese refugees living in the United States to be “double that of other people, as 24 out of 100,000 take their own lives”, as of two thousand fourteen the refugee population in America is around seventy six thousand (Harper). There are numerous explanations for the high rate of suicide, many of which can be attributed to the forced exile and subsequent life in the refugee camps; many older refugees cannot part with the reality of never returning to their Bhutanese homeland, and the societal differences in America, including the difficult language barrier, certainly have an impact (Kulman and Tsukii).
In recent reports it has been shown that child labor has definitely decreased over the past 10 years. The only problem is that since China is not obligated to publish or give any information their child labor statistics, it is unclear if there has been a serious decline. It is doubtful that China with their weak government interference and high drop out rates, that they experience the same decrease in child labor. Each year employers begin to adapt to cutting their labor costs and making a more compliant workforce, so there is no need for them to stop hiring children, it is actually beneficial to them. Since child workers do not affect the economic stability of China such as unemployment or migrant workers moving in to urban cities, this cause for their special needs to be overlooked by either the government or special organizations.
INTRODUCTION/HISTORY 33561, that is the number of road related fatalities that have occurred in the United States in the year 2012 alone. This number pales in comparison to that of China’s, its numbers coming in at a chilling 275983 fatalities. The worldwide trend of road fatalities is growing at an extremely rapid rate, this places pressure on companies and governments to come up with a solution to slow down the rate of fatalities and potentially even one day end all road fatalities. Ask any person and they would most likely tell you the reason behind such high numbers of road accidents is simply: bad drivers. These people are not wrong, humans are not perfect creatures, putting us in a fast moving object is bound to cause problems sooner or later.
