Clyde started his own problems because he didn’t have anybody to tell him what to do. While Marek and Clyde live their lives involved with similar families and robberies, the outcome of their lives ended different. Although Marek and Clyde seemed successful by themselves, their families live a similar life because they both grew up in a lower class family. Marek had to do a lot of illegal tasks the keep himself and family in good health.
My first point which shows sympathy in Hunchback In The Park is that the Hunch back does not fit in a class because of his disability. This point is backed up by "slept at night in a dog kennel". That quote is showing that he is almost in the same class as a dog, this quote is also showing isolation as he has he can't go anywhere else because of how cruel the society is. Society is cruel towards the Hunchback because of his disability. The author is referring back to isolation and poverty as he is homeless because of what he looks like, the author is referring back to poverty as the Hunchback had to sleep in a dog kennel because he had nowhere else to go.
The indigenous workers were treated very badly and paid very little for their labor. Two of Menchú’s brothers died while working on the plantations. Menchú also worked as a muchacha (a maid) for wealthy families who often treated their dogs better than the muchachas (“Rigoberta Menchú Biography”). Life for indigenous people became increasingly difficult in the Guatemalan highlands when guerilla groups that resisted the military government hid in the highlands near their homes. The military violently sought out these groups and arrested and killed anyone that they believed was associated with them (“Rigoberta Menchú Biography”).
He believed that the prominent feature of a black man had been destroyed because of the not having a proper paternal structure. He also explained about the problem like unemployment of black men, increase in the birth of children without wedding and Lack of government support. His article, in the beginning, explained about what are effects of incarceration on the family members and also how they are financially affected. The impact of incarceration will also continue even after their release because after the incarceration the owners are worried to trust them and give them a job.
Through indirect characterization, Sandra Cisneros’ vignette “Geraldo No Last Name” demonstrates that your social status is a big contributor to how you are treated in society. For instance, when the narrator describes Geraldo, they acknowledge the fact that “They never saw the kitchenettes. They never knew about the two-room flats and sleeping rooms he rented”. Cisneros gives readers enough details to conclude that because Geraldo is recognized as just another brazer and wetback, he is forced to live in these poor conditions because society views him as irrelevant. People with low social status are often ignored by society because they are seen as insignificant.
Sharecropping becomes a minute step up from slavery when the fact that the workers rarely were paid if at all, that due to their debts, workers never owned their own land so they couldn’t support themselves, and that this practice
The Jim Crow laws made it so that many black people became powerless as they couldn’t vote. They couldn’t vote because the lawmakers passed a law to make it so that people had to pay to vote. Because many black people at the time were poor many of them couldn’t pay this fee of voting and were left powerless when it came to political decisions. That is not the only way that the lawmakers made it so the blacks were powerless. They also made it so white and black people couldn’t be together in public so there had to be different railway cars, water fountains, stores, restaurants and pretty much their whole lives were apart.
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. We as a society have simplified a solution because many of us do not understand the complex issues that these circumstances
Many people were not able to find a permanent job but instead working for temporary jobs that offer low wages. Some families were forced into refugee camp and barely passing with selling the few goods they still own. Selling used goods was not enough support families with many children. As a result, the vulnerable children died due to lack of nutrients . This man-made famine was a massage from the environment.
He feels that if he cannot achieve greatness and get his family out of the slums of Chicago, then he has failed at everything. It not only concerns his family that he sees his human worth out of money, but it worries them because they are not able to trust him to be responsible and just when making decisions. While the Younger family wants to own a house and receive a stronger income, Walter is the only one who obsesses over it and allows it to alter the ways in which he treats important people in his life. Segregation caused dreams to become deferred, and weights were put onto the families during the 1950s. Due to segregation, they could not afford what white families could, and this was because they were paid less in the workforce.
He feared there would be no one to maintain the house and take care of the children if she was working. It also threatened his masculinity, but similar to the families in the museum, they had no choice. If he wanted his children to eat and have a home he had to allow Katie to work. Several other ideas also overlapped between the Tenement Museum and Jews without Money.
Desmond Holmes came from a long line of aristocrats, however his distant relatives would most likely turn in their graves if they knew what had become of the clan. The family had fallen on hard times; they were poor. Not poor like the “unfortunate” citizens of Oftbrook, Virginia, whose hardship consisted mostly of not being able to eat out every night. The Holmes were outsiders, and none of them were particularly bright, especially Desmond. Being an outsider makes one a target, but who could be a shooter in small town Virginia?
The Appalachian South was used for its resources. Very few people lived there, therefore it was difficult to maintain, or as the book states, “...little to reinvest in its physical or human resources.” Also the textbook mentioned the working conditions. For example: employees viewed as cheap labor, requirements to buy from company stores, and low life expectancy rates.
They were regularly paid far less than the wages they were guaranteed, and subjected to the abuses of the employer-favored piece meal system of payment. (cite, 147) Additionally, braceros were often forced to pay for their room and board, often at exorbitant prices. This made it virtually impossible for them to save any money. (cite from film “Harvest of Loneliness”, go into depth)
Wes realized that his job wasn’t a real ‘job’, it was a source to feed addictions like Cheryl’s. In an attempt to revise his life, he entered the Job Corps program, sadly, it didn’t last very long. He wasn’t making much money from the low paid jobs that he was offered through the program, he needed to take care of his children with both financial and parental support, with all of these situations happening one after the other, he was feeling very overwhelmed. Although Wes knew he didn’t want to stray back to his old habits, it took the best of him, the one thing that Wes took away from his childhood was the easiest way to make money, and that consisted of one thing; the drug business, the chapter ends with him preparing a bag of cocaine with tears welling in his eyes, with disappointment for
