It was called the Poor Law Amendment Act. It was passed to cut down finances as limited funds were available. This New Act distinguished between ‘deserving’ and ‘undeserving’ poor (Raphael, 2011) .

Thirty-five percent of Americans recieve help from welfare every day, and if we drug test them that number would suddenly drop. Some individuals claim that drug testing would help individuals by putting them into treatment; however, there are several reasons why drug testing would not help recipients. While drug testing could recognize the individuals who need help, problems would be caused such as impacts on the person, the cost, and other impacts such as on children and poverty levels. I A. First, drug testing will cause problems with the money people are receiving. If the test is positive the recipient will have reduced income and they may not get any income at all (US Department of Health and Human Services 8).

According to White (2012), “For-profit hospitals are typically owned by large corporate systems or smaller investor-owned corporation. Not-for-profit hospitals may be further segmented into those that are publicly funded and those that ae privately funded. (p.10)” Therefore, the ownership and taxation process of these two hospitals are what makes them different. For-profit hospitals are required to pay taxes while, not-for-profit hospitals are exempt by the government.

They compete with each other, to be more luxurious than the next. These “ boutique “ hospitals or 6-7star hospitals, charge a lot for their services and their mark-ups can be 100-200 percent on some items. We have nothing against “ boutique hospitals “, but it would be very unfair to include the cost of care there into the healthcare budget as private healthcare expenditure. Afterall, healthcare is for making people well to return back to society, not to let them be pampered with luxury at our expense. There is no end to cost of luxuries and pampering all done to boost the bottomline.

One law was the Interstate Commerce Act which helped to economically aid workers. This aided workers because railroads had to openly publish their rates, so their companies could not be charged more than they deserve to be charged. Prior to this law, railroads could charge large companies very little and small companies too much. Another way the industrial worker was affected by government actions was through the Chinese Exclusion Act, which affected the workers socially. This act outlawed all Chinese immigration to America for ten years, although it actually lasted until 1943.

At that time London 's populations was also growing. In that time the law stated that the government should give money to people who can not work. But, those who could work had to find jobs.
