Economic imbalances resulting from World War I was the main cause for the Great Depression. Consumers were unable to buy all the goods produced causing manufacturers to close businesses. Closing businesses resulted in a rise of unemployment, however, President Franklin D. Roosevelt created the New Deal as an effort to alleviate poverty and unemployment. President Roosevelt believed that it was essential for the government to protect the less fortunate and improve society . One of Roosevelt 's New Deal program, the Works Progress Administration (WPA), employed masses of people, saving them for poverty and despair.
This became significant because as the bourgeois started improving their machinery and producing more, they did not need skilled labor, and they could hire women and children for a lot less money. With this happening unemployment rose and wages fell, thus putting more people into poverty and starvation. This is similar to what happened in the French Revolution because the oppressed were extremely poor and did not have enough to eat. This caused a want for reform, and therefore, the same could happen between the bourgeois and the proletariats. In other words, the oppressed can only be oppressed for so long before a life or death challenge steps in, and they have to step up to the challenge.
In his essay “John J. Macionis” which appear as The Twenty-First-Century Campus: Where is the Men? And this article show how the women have great social equality after long time of being not accepted in college. He describe who the women were not welcome in all the colleges or universities in United States in one century ago. Few years ago the number of women who go to college has increase until they finally matched the men. Moreover, the low income make more women go to college then men, and that because they able to find a jobs without needing for college degree.
The state financials are now a chaos, due to Brownback’s actions. However, his plan backfired and now one of his options are to take budgets from the all the schools as high as forty-five million dollars and more. If Brownback starts to take away the school fundings then the schools would not be able to afford more textbooks, essential supplies, and even have to make the schools cancel games and activities just because they do not have any more funds to support it. This causes students to not be able to have a good education compared to the kids in other states. Not only is Brownback cutting public school funding, which is affecting the kids at the schools, but it also heavily is affecting the teachers.
During this period lots of people had lost their jobs, poor families had nothing to eat and to live off, country 's banks had failed. People were living off what they government gave them which wasn 't much. Herbert Hoover was the President at that time and his response to what was happening wasn 't so good. He believed that the economy goes through a cycle and that the government should let things run their course and eventually things would improve. As result of this many people thought that he wasn 't doing anything to help the country pass through the great depression, but on his last year as president he started to get more involved and try to help those who were suffering.
Because of this the New Deal helped to significantly lower the unemployment levels. “The New Deal reduced unemployment from the very high level of 1933, 12,8 million, to 7.7 million in 1937” Even though there were successes to the economic side of the New Deal there were also many thing that were insignificant in other parts of the economy. For example even though unemployment fell “ As late as 1941 the unemployed still numbered six million” and it remained very high up until World War two started and the unemployment problem almost disappears. This demonstrated that unemployment was still extremely high and no huge change had been made. The New Deal also did nothing to assist the halt in technological advances in farming that causes many farm workers to be replaced by machines.
There were times when some African Americans lived their lives in poverty. According to the article, students who lived in poverty were often left behind in school because they could not get the support due to weak services (Fram, Miller-Cribbs, Van-Horn p. 309). This shows how students were treated based on what they could and could not afford. These students did not have much support so it was harder for them. Classrooms for students of the lower minority were not properly fortified, and most of the students that were in these classrooms were not that efficient in reading as described in the article.
The disparity has been justified that women make less money than men are based on what seem to be logical reasons but According to a 2010 study done by the U.S. Census Bureau, the average of all working women earn 78% of what men makes and 64% for black women. While is is useful to look at the incomes of men and women as a whole, it still doesn’t account for things such as educational level, work experience, hours worked, and type of job. However, even when we control for these factors, the gender pay gap still exists. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released a 2014 report examining the median weekly earnings of full time wage and salary workers that took gender and job position into account. When type of job and job position are control for these factors, the gender wage gap disparity still exists in every field.
He noticed that his richer peers were treated better by his teachers, and he could not continue his higher education because of his own financial problems (“George Orwell Biography”). His negative experiences with education in his early life tainted his perception of the
As the community can tell, money is a big issue for schools today, another huge problem is the academic needs of the schools and students. Amanda Ripley stated that “America Lags behind other countries” around the globe with academics, but if we put more academics and canceled sports we would be able to catch up to the other countries in the learning program. Not only is Fremont high affecting their own learning, but also the middle school had to move in with the senior high school, and the “elementary school hadn’t had a music teacher in years”
During this time, the people had a very limited amount of jobs, a limited amount of rain, and a absence of hope. First, it put many people out of jobs. For example, the text says, “The closing of the Old West Side Mine meant (anything but) a steady job for the next 8 months.” Work gets you money, which is very important to living a good life. So, having a job is very important. Next, the passage said there wasn’t much rain.
The low-income Jobs that once required a high school diploma are increasingly demanding some type of college degree, even though there has been minimal to no change in work or level of difficulty. Lucas states that these hiring managers claim that high school graduates are incapable of good performance because they are not educated enough (Lucas). These claims are a cause for concern, because of the lack of acquired knowledge upon receiving a bachelor’s degree. According to the authors of Academically Adrift, Dr. Richard Arum and Dr. Josipa Roksa, forty-five percent of students in an undergraduate program didn’t learn much. These findings show that students are wasting their money in order to qualify for a minimum wage job.
