‘It’s not even the third day yet, ma’am has spent 350 HKD. She usually gave me 200 HKD for three days’” (Sorrita 83-4).

The power differential between the migrant workers and their employers has indeed positioned the employees—the migrant workers—as subordinates, and most of the time IDWs have to be willing to accept any
The great majority of society go to work everyday and although they may not enjoy working, chances are they are most likely in a clean, friendly, and safe environment. Some employees around the world do not have this luxury. In fact 75% of Nike factory workers quit every year because of the terrible conditions discussed in this essay. Despite the fact that Nike updated their working conditions in 2002, they still need to improve their working conditions in their factories abroad by making the conditions in the factory safer, treating the employees fairly in the workplace, and increasing the workers pay. This will help the employees because it will decrease injuries/ illnesses, and help the employees live healthier and happier lives.

He claimed that Foxconn was not a sweatshop. In addition to this, he did praise his largest supplier for having restaurants, movie theatres and swimming pools despite being a factory. A 30% pay rise was given to its assembly line workers, which then led to forced overtime hours. Though Jobs and Cook have repeatedly denied any worker’s abuse, and have tried to cover it up by sending their executives to these factories, which yield little to no results. This is backed strongly by a video footage of Richard Bilton, who underwent a secret operation in the Shanghai factory.
However, he wound up returning to Apple a few years later. Upon seeing the evolution of the company since his exit, he only became more frustrated. He was particularly annoyed by the lack of attention on the Apple II division of the company, and so he left once again. Wozniak never took his name off the employee list, so he is still technically an employee and receives a stipend from Apple of about $120,000 per year. He joked in an interview with CNBC that “...since he reported to the late Steve Jobs, he can’t be fired.” (Shinal).

This belief makes it incredibly difficult for people in Mexico to raise above the social class they were born in. Marco’s family was relatively poor mainly do to the fact that his father was only paid five dollars for a nine hours work day. After many years with no financial relief Marco’s father finally makes the journey to America (Ryan). Beyond Smoke and Mirrors, a 2002 book written by Jorge Durand, Nolan J. Malone, and Douglas S.Massey --explaining reasons behind Mexican Immigration-- states that, “Simply by crossing a line, he or she [mexican immigrants] would not only earn more income but gain access to better schooling, a richer infrastructure, improved social services, superior medical care, and a fuller array of consumer alternatives.” This statement directly connects with Marcos experiences in the “First Crossing”. After Marcos father starts crossing the border their family’s economic status improves.
All these examples show that poor and working-class whites also had little opportunity to realize the American Dream. In the 1970s article, “Pre-Election Mood: ‘There is No Time for Dreams’” James T. Wooten indirectly talks about the perspective of the working on the American Dream. A man named Dewey David Burton basically comes to terms with the fact that he can not achieve his dream. After years of working as an auto worker, he has not made any significant improvement. Even after his wife gets a job, his family makes just enough to maintain their standard of
