For example, a woman might be limited to a position in which she is mostly the “pretty face” of a company, while a man might be suitable for a position in leadership. Similarly, a victim of racism is mentally pre-screened by the prejudiced person, in this case an employer. For example, they might see someone of Asian descent, and the employer declines them, due to his or her particular hatred towards Asians. This process happens daily in a society where many people are racist and sexist. The potential that this process wastes should almost be a crime.
Bias is used in everyday life. It mostly affects our subconscious. When something affects our subconscious, it means that an idea affects us without knowing that it affects us. Bias is used in terms of race, religion, work ethic, brands, and gender.

During the next couple of months many people died due to the violence that was going on in this strike. The Pullman strike soon became a nationwide railroad strike in the United States. Since many people lost their jobs after the depression, they had to go try to find a new job which was not easy under the conditions of a strike. When they found a job, many took a huge pay cut often receiving thirty percent less of what they were making before the strike. The Pullman Strike also had an impact on transporting people and goods.
One of the main reasons people do not agree with the usage of labor unions are because they view it as a system of abuse. When they were first established in the eighteenth century they served a very valuable purpose on fixing the horrible working conditions and extremely low pay. Since this time nonunion members think that people abuse the power the union offers such as members knowing what the company can and cannot fire them for and that all the “loop holes” have been exposed to the union members. Not only do people think that the system is abused but they also believe that unions devaluate hard workers. When a contract states that there will be fair wages that means that everyone will receive the same amount of pay which means that there is no strive to do better and those who are dedicated workers lose the lack of value and motivation that they put into their work.

Racism and discrimination continue to impact the lives of others. Whether it is being passed over for a job or being underpaid, some people have to deal with unfair practice that would prevent someone of color from having equal opportunities at a job. The Declaration of Independence states that all men are created equal, no matter how different they are, from race to religion to the color of skin. For example in Harrison Bergeron racism is expressed throughout the characters differently. It shows discrimination against everyone because they are taking that person's freedom away and judging them on their looks and abilities.
