On the other hand, the English were only focused on the settlement and colonization of the New World. This led to ill feelings from the American Indians to the English and vice versa. The French´s value of the fur trade over settlement allowed them to be more successful at trade than the English. If it weren 't for the French´s focus on the fur trade, they might not be labeled more successful in the trade with the American
The long hours effected working mothers who couldn 't be home to take care of their children and had to work instead. Women also faced exploitation in the workplace because it was easier for their employers to get away with paying them less. Ella Mae Wiggins was a famous poet that conveyed the struggles and hardships of female workers of the time though her powerful pieces. She was a part of the fight for better working conditions. Another reason why women faced hardships in the workplace was because women had been on an almost equal level with men in the workplace until men came back from World War I. When all the men left to fight in World War I, they left their jobs open.
“Mill girls had been replaced in the mid-to late 1800s by Italian, Irish, and Portuguese immigrants who would work for lower wages” (“Harriet Hanson Robinson”). Although the textile mills thought they had found a better way to work without spending as much money on workers they were wrong. Most mill girls were already very experienced and good at their jobs, while immigrants needed to be taught all of their jobs and there was a strong language barrier which made everything more difficult. “One out of every three spinners, many under the age of twenty five, would die before completing ten years in the factory” (“Harriet Hanson Robinson”). With many of the mill girls not being able to survive in such harsh conditions and as they got fewer and fewer, it showed how important all of them were in the business.
Mrs. Mallard is such an interesting character to discuss due to the fact that she is such a controversial character. Some would say that she is a sick individual for imagining her life being so much more care free without her husband. Others would defend the fact that that being a wife in the 1800’s was never an easy task. Woman were meant to be seen, not heard. They were supposed to tend to all of their husbands requests and demands.
It is very said to see that those people in the documentary were working hard day and night and still did not have the funds to take care of themselves. They were working hard but receiving a dollar an hour but they were making Nike’s company billions of dollars. Symbolic interaction in also one of the theories that plays a role in inequality as well. Symbolic interaction theory is the norms for people that shaped them into society. It is the life style that people are used to and they try to improve their situations the best the way that they know how.
Women were extremely mistreated in the late nineteenth-century, no matter what amount of money they had. The women that’s family had more money would be treated minimally better but the mistreatment still ranged from schooling, jobs, and how they should live their lives. Women to this day still have problems in society whether it be working the same job as men but getting paid less or playing the stay at home mom but society is still not happy with that. We have come a long way in one hundred years but universally there are a few more kinks before women will be equal to men.
Women are highly underappreciated when the subject of history appears. Many do not like admitting that women have as much to do with the development of America as men do but it is apparent in several instances of history that America would not be what it is today without women. Several women throughout history have helped develop American society as a whole and they should be recognized.
Many people believe that machineries and other advance technologies make the works more easier than the past. But, this is not true in most situations. Workers still have to work hard even more than in the past. Curry writes, “Fully one third of American workers—who work longer hours than their counterparts in any industrialized country—felt overwhelmed by the amount of work they had to do”(400). Ehrenreich’s waitress job is so difficult that when its busy she had to run around taking orders and work long hours without any breaks.
In the early 1900s, The U.S. had faced a lot of problem. The overcrowded cities as a result of too much immigration was one of the major problem. There were too much competition to find a job for most of those who weren’t wealthy, so most of them have to work even in the worst condition with the least wages. The working condition was terrible there were too many workers, and business owners who were interested to pay the least wages to get the most profit. Workers had to work hard to keep their job and be able to pay their bills.
1. Introduction: (give some context to this statement) (5 points) Although New England and the Chesapeake region were both settled largely by people of English origin, by 1700 the regions had evolved into two distinct societies. The motives for settling in New England were mostly religious, and settling in the Chesapeake area was for commercial use and profits.
New England and the Chesapeake region were both settled largely of English origin, but by the 1700 the regions had evolved into two distinct societies. The difference in development occurred because of different religion beliefs, situations the colony was under, and different political views. Starting a colony wasn’t trouble-free. The settlers struggled with: starvation, lack of clean water, disease, and and indigenous people. Some settlers even disappeared almost completely, with the reasoning being unknown.
New England and Chesapeake Settlements Some may think that both the New England and Chesapeake regions were alike, since they were settled by the English. However, they would be wrong as the two regions settled here with different motives. The Jamestown colony was led by John Smith, while the Mass Bay colony was led by John Cotton and John Winthrop.
