Hinton, because they get jumped, lack of money, get put down by socs, and have titles over their heads. The Greasers have difficult lives because they get jumped and are always getting put down by the Socs.

First, poverty can be a serious problem especially to the youth. To begin with, in The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, the Greasers have to fight to survive (Hinton 4-6). This shows how rough the Greasers have it. This is all due to the fact that they are below the poverty line.
1984 Synthesis Essay Poverty negatively influences how the minds of people work in the world. The fact that poverty exists itself, obstructs people from changing their circumstances in what is known as “the cycle of poverty.” The lower class is incredibly disadvantaged in that it lacks the necessary social and economic resources needed to increase chances of social mobility. In return, the absence of these resources may increase poverty. Therefore, the lower class is unable to change its situation because the majority believes that any efforts to climb the social ladder is highly inefficient. In the novel 1984, George Orwell illustrates a classic example of why the proles are reluctant to change their lifestyle-simply because the costs outweighs
When it came to family life, to say they struggled is an understatement. Along with businesses, homes where degraded to almost nothing and with the desperation of the people inside them, things weren’t much better. People where scouring every nook and cranny to at least find a penny. The wages where so low a penny was worth much more than they are today(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Depression).

However, in the midst of an economic crisis, the people who had stability despised those who could not achieve a steady way of life. Farmers who hoarded the food that could keep people alive would not help those in need. By selfishly withholding aid, the farmers failed humanity in a way, “that topples all our success,” showing that what they did was not right (Steinbeck 349). When faced with the injustice of people being too poor to afford what they need to survive, those who had resources were morally obligated to help feed those

There are three major categories in the types of General strain theory: Failure to achieve positively valued goals, the loss of positively valued stimuli, and the presentation of negative stimuli.

Strain will result from the lack of autonomy disproportionately affecting adolescents and the poor because of their lower position in society.
The lower class doesn’t have the opportunity to express their feelings and achieve reforms. They don’t have this chance because the wealthy oppress them. The poor “[have] the knowledge [they are] small but [they] lack the courage to be otherwise” (20). This example from Smith’s text shows that the poor know they aren’t as powerful as the wealthy but they don’t have the guts to stand up for themselves because they have a fear of not being accepted and ridiculed by the wealthy. Another example from Smith’s text shows that the wealthy are astonished by when the poor speak up for themselves.

As Goldrick-Rab states, todays financial aid is providing “too little to too few.” Our current financial aid programs simply do not give enough of their supposed aid to all the people that need the help, it pits people against each other as they work to get this aid, each one deserving, yet few getting the small amounts of help provided. After getting the financial aid, those recipients are always degraded as lazy, simply not working for the money that their family lacks, despite how difficult it is to get money in our current economy that’s tearing at the middle and lower classes. Once we have more people with the ability to go to college, then we can reach our potential as an educated society, showing that talent is not based on income or how well off your family is financially.
