The Violence of Johnny’s family impacts Johny’s natural instincts, which means that some of his characteristics were already fixed since he was born, and influenced him in daily life. Johnny grew up in a family without care, love, and understanding. From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family.

Lastly, in the very beginning of the book Peak got in trouble with the law for climbing and tagging skyscrapers. Josh had left all his customers at base camp
The world of business is and always been a pragmatic domain where firms are perpetually competing and will do whatever it takes in order to get ahead. As this struggle played out over time a system has developed in which the prosperity of the business has now far outweighed the wellbeing of it’s’ employees. This imbalance of power has paved the way for businesses to employ abusive labor practices most notably sweatshop labor. Sweatshops are defined by the Encyclopedia Britannica as “A workplace in which workers are employed at low wages and under unhealthy or oppressive conditions.” When it comes to this topic two popular schools of thought have emerged, those who oppose the lack of moral standards practiced in sweatshops, and those who believe

Samuel Gompers, American Labor Union leader, led the American Federation of Labor.
The Knights of Labor included black and female members, unlike the American Federation of Labor. To get workers’ demands unions would hold negotiations with the boss or with the floor manager. If the negotiations failed the labor unions would hold walkouts and strikes. These strikes had to be strategic because the employees wouldn’t get paid while they protested. If a floor manager like Henry Frick, who watched over one of Carnegie's steel mills, doesn’t want to meet his employees' demands he can either hire temporary scabs to keep the factory productive, or he can hire the Pinkerton Detective Agency.
Many people look at convicts as just stupid people that just made all the wrong decisions in life, and for the majority of my life I looked at them in the same way. My father has been a police officer for years, well before I was even born. About 30 years to be exact and whenever you ask him what he does , he’ll tell you “get them bad guys”.
