Everyone faces problems at some point in their life; some more than others. In the novel The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, it shows that both Socs, the affluent, and Greasers, the poverty-stricken, have problems. However, using the novel and two other sources, “Alarming Number of Teens are Quitting School to Go to Work,” and “A Generation Struggling: Rich Kids are Losing,” an observation can be formed on the Greasers, Socs, and the similar and different struggles each of them have to face. First, poverty can be a serious problem especially to the youth.
It is important to understand these social themes because they occur in every society and it is up to the society and the individual to try and make a change. Overall, poverty class barriers show up everywhere. The Gallagher family in “Shameless” is a good example of this because they are very poor and most of the siblings end up dropping out of high school or not amounting to much within their lives. They are never truly able to get away from having this status, and it is truly sad because they represent actual families in the real world struggling with this everyday. Money is the true root of all evil, whether you have it or don’t have it there are still issues that show up in your
It wasn’t until the great depression that real change was happening. “Because so many people were out of work during this time period reformers pushed the issue and giving the jobs to adults who needed them” (Child Labor, 1) Even though they accomplished their goal the process of getting it was hard and was very violent. Luckily now a days America has child labour laws that protect the youth from having to endure such horrible conditions again. Young adults are provided with better working conditions and minimum wage so America will not repeat history.
These outcomes present impediment on academic advancement for the victims. In the United States both governmental and private, non-profit organizations work around the clock to alleviate the devastating outcomes of food deficiency in some of the poor families and individuals by offerinf food pantries, food stamps, and cash
They are our future. According to society, our entire world may be in the hands of our children. But if children are the future then why do they still suffer from hunger due to poverty and food insecurity? The amount of children suffering is higher than a number than you could’ve ever anticipated. It’s horrendous that while living in one of the wealthiest countries in the world we still see children starving.
Justice for Youth said that the slave trade prey on families who are in dire need of income. This proves that homes are possible to achieve for the reason that families who have somewhere that can bring them back on their feet, they have a less likely chance of putting children into the slave trade. Another problem is these families are looking for something to help them back on their feet,so having this home to live in would help. If these families have a place that will help them obtain a source of income, then they will not be obligated to sell their children or themselves. Thousands of kids are dying daily around the world because of hunger, this is actually one of the root causes of child trafficking.
“Poverty a major and ubiquitous causal factor, which greatly limits vocational and economic opportunities in rural areas in particular and pushes families to use all available avenues to increase their meager incomes”(Harsch). The family experience poverty because of the stress they take to find the child. The family have to deal with the pain of not having their child around and be stressing so much they sometimes they pay the bills on time and suddenly everything is taking away from them. Some families believe they have nothing else left when they child go missing so they just live a dirty low life, and sometimes the parents will start even using drugs and drinking to ease their minds. Also sometimes the kidnapper wants money for ransom, which the parents are willing to pay, even though its possible they want get or ever see their child again.
“It is about ending the incredible despair that exists in many parts of this country where – as a result of unemployment and low wages, suicide, drugs and alcohol – millions of Americans are now dying, in an ahistorical way, at a younger age than their parents (Sanders).” Suicide, drugs, and alcohol are all hard hitting subjects to most, especially suicide. And the fact that he mentions young Americans are succumbing to these things evokes pathos because children are seen more innocent and untouched by society than adults. Therefore, seeing a child, adolescent, or young adult succumb to any of the previously mentioned things would be devastating for most to hear and see.
Dropping out of school is one of the reasons that lead to child labor. This Wonder may be totally spread in the Egyptian nation over side particularly to boys, basically due to the growth of the educational instruments and tools such as: school clothes, books, private tuition. So, poor people are forced on getting their children out school because they cannot afford the cash. This mix abandons children with not a guaranteeing future through academia o strong practical skills. Ragab (2010)Also, working children cannot find a compensation land between work and education.

This editorial focuses mainly on pathos but also uses ethos and logos to support their argument. Pathos plays a large role in the argument of this editorial. The authors bring out the emotion sympathy when they say, “Many families have exhausted their savings, and children are forced to work menial jobs instead of attending school” (“Refugees,” 2015). People feel bad for children in terrible situations because they are not yet fully grown and often do not understand their circumstances. In
The life of an African American consists of hardships. People are constantly becoming infected with diseases, then left to die without any medication or treatments available to them. Children in Africa are most prone to diseases due to their extremely weak immune systems. Moreover, children are not the only victims of diseases because when parents become immensely sick, their children take on the responsibility of running the family. In this case, children try to overtake jobs their parents abandoned to help support their suffering family; however, continuing an adult job can be overwhelming for a young African.
Many families are still living paycheck to paycheck or even worse unfortunately resulting in giving their children no chance to excel in school and promoting very low self-esteem that if nothing is done will have a permanent and damaging effect on them as adults. Children in poverty are more in danger of not only repeating the cycle and living in poverty, but also becoming totally dependent on the federal and state assistance. As the rate of federal assistance for families increases the focus on hunger, starvation and death among the poor decreases. Many families that are still living at or below the poverty line have to choose between food and paying the life sustaining bills like water for example. Prior to the recession in 2008 the United States had not seen such a drop in finances in individuals and families since the Great Depression.
