The workers that were protesting outside the farm in The Grapes of Wrath are just like the protesters that protested in New York, they wanted fair and better wages so they could support themselves and their families. Although these two situations happened in different eras, they still hold the same issue that people need fair wages in order to survive. In the book, the low wages were bad because the Joad family couldn 't afford food while the low wages now won’t allow workers to pay rent. The time periods might be different but the issues are still the
Immigrants should be allowed to remain in the country because many families would be separated, they are already accustomed to the American society, and they contribute to the economy. The issue is about immigration in the United States, about how immigrants are coming into the country every year and it seems not to stop. Year after year, it has become a major problem in the U.S, that they ask
It makes me angry because this situation is part of my life and my people. While countries like the United States squanders millions of dollars in wars and military programs, other poor countries like Honduras, Nicaragua, and more struggles resolving problems like hunger and education. Whichever reason that immigrants have to move from their country, we have to support them. Most of the immigrants come to the United States searching a better future and a chance to
It will further elaborate on the ongoing debate about what role laws and regulations should take on the growing issue of sweatshops and child labor, and how they can be improved on without disabling the poverty-stricken foreign workers, who may rely on this type of work to support their families. The proceeding essay will take on the cause and effects as well as a few pros and cons of sweatshops in the United States regarding the beginning of sweatshops and the effects on people involved. A few of the main ideas will include contributors that began sweatshops and how it has evolved, why laws and regulations were implemented and if they’re making a difference or not, as well as the pros and cons that come along with the
An unprecedented number of immigrants have entered Chile seeking job opportunities and a better life that they could not find in their homelands. Chile’s political stability and growing economy have made our country a preference among immigrants, especially Caribbean immigrants. However, immigrants have experienced discrimination and labor abuse, which is far away from their expectations. For this reason, Chilean migration law should be revised and modernized in order to assure the well-being of newcomers. Most Chilean immigration issues are due to an outdated migration policy, as it remains unchanged since the 1970’s.
American Dream and Immigration Immigration has been a sensitive topic and is one of the domestic issues in the United States for the past few years. “Which is ironic, given that this country was founded upon and built by immigrants” (Edward Hudgins). Millions of immigrants have proceeded to advance to the United States with the goal in mind of achieving their American Dream. The American Dream has a different significance for each person, but it’s all tied to the same idea that it’s people’s aspiration in life. In which people from various countries come to the United States to gain prosperity and a stable place in life.
legally, that our system is biased toward people who can afford to pay their way in.” (In-text Citations) The current immigration system and the number of visas that are available makes it even harder to people that don’t have that kind of money to enter the country, so “illegal entry becomes the way immigrants respond to the lure of jobs with higher wages than what they would be able to find in their current country” (In-text Citation). A person that I have spoken with and shared her opinions about unauthorized immigrants, and she said, “People come and stay in the states undocumented, they were desperate to have a better life and even though it’s against the law to work here paperless; they still do it because of desperation.” But, immigrating is not all about just seeking for better opportunity to have a better life, but also, people come to the U.S. to reunite with their family that has been away from them for a long time. For example, the U.S. opened Bracero Program which brought millions of Mexican to the states to take jobs at the farm, and after the U.S. government terminate the program, many of workers stayed and continued working in the farm illegally (In-text
DACA has gave many opportunities to many dreamers in the world and taking that back when every congress feels the need to do so is not okay for the lives of these people. DACA and dreamers have shown to be loyal and good to this country despite the hate and mistreatment the DACA controversy has created and boosted the economy due to hard work. Republicans hate and lack of ability to work with the rest of congress only shows that DACA is just a meaningless immigration act. DACA has been used as a scapegoat to blame for social problems like "chain-migration" which is also a socially constructed concept created by Americans, for them to believe it is okay to forcefully and cruelly getting rid of dreamers. DACA is a positive and economy booster to America therefor it should stay to continue to allow dreamers to open opportunities for
Student debt is one of the biggest issues that people are struggling with. Especially for those graduates whose major does not guarantee a stable job due to the limited amount of job positions, such as art history and music majors, many of them end up being a freelancer because job unavailability. Governments often encourage the citizens to spend more and help improve the economy, but how could the citizens help when they don’t have the spending power due to the heavy student debt that they are carrying. A good way to improve the economy is by solving the issue of student debt. With the help of the “Organ for Ed” program, both the job seeking and economic problems would dissolve at once.
There has been a debate on that people from other countries are taking the jobs of American citizens. Not every American citizen knows the problems and struggles that a person from another country goes through to get to the United States. Change towards racism in work places is needed because people from other countries come here for a better live. When they do end up with a job most times the boss or employer, and even the co-workers are disrespectful, and dishonest towards them. All humans are the same and should not be disrespected or dishonest with each other.
It is unethical that undocumented immigrants are treated like they are worthless. They should be provided the same rights as everyone else. We need to value that these undocumented immigrants bring so many benefits to our country. Their presence in our country, according to Eastman, “not only establish[es] their own new business which then creates jobs […] but also increase[s] demand for housing, food, services, and other forms of labor” (38). As a society, we do not think of these long-term effects that will benefit us because instead we are worried about not having strangers come take away what is “ours.” We need to be able to take into consideration all the outcomes of the decisions that are made before they affect our country
Corporations and workers both need each other to survive, but they don’t get along very well. Corporations are trying to get the most money they can get in the most efficient way possible. Workers on the other hand, are trying to get the most compensation for the labor they supply to the corporations. This leads to conflicts between both parties resulting in a strike. Strikes are good for the common worker because they help the worker get a good deal.
Americans still think it is unfair that immigrants get financial benefits when US-born Americans worked hard for generations to earn their pay. As a result, millions of Americans cannot pay the bills, which leads the American economy to suffer more debt. However, America have humanitarian duties to invite immigrants who seek opportunities while protecting its own economy from thieves outside the United States. To state that immigrants do not create positive contribution to the economy is creating a single-centered story about immigrants. Legal immigrants have a desire to create the America dream come alive.
The Earth can be improved All we need to do is work together The world needs to see that immigrants are struggling Immigrants are important to our countries in ways that can’t be explained We need to create more job opportunities for immigrants because they help out a lot There are many arguments about minority rights and freedoms And they need more of both Society has a problem and it is called greed Let’s end greed and fund educational opportunities A big reason why people are homeless is because housing is so expensive You can’t expect people to be able to go post-secondary and pay for a house When it is so expensive, even with a full-time job a house can cost too much Let’s take a stand We’ll be hand in hand
In addition, dealing with families also involves juggling the economic side of funeral services and possible ethical dilemmas. As a matter of fact, as we live in a capitalistic country, funeral homes are businesses and still do need to make profit. Alexandre admits that he felt very uncomfortable selling products and services to families at first, especially for those with lower incomes. However, with more years of experience and practice, he feels more at ease in dealing with families emotionally. Furthermore, with new financial aid programs for less fortunate families, the ethical gap between death and business is smaller.
