The reason why many Americans refuse to take these jobs is that they are low paying and tedious. They would rather do minimal amounts of work for higher pay in the comfort of an office space rather than pick fruits, packaging food, or work at a steel mill. To quote Dwoskins article “Why Americans Won 't do Dirty Jobs,” Dwoskin states “Americans won’t fill them, thus, Americans are too soft.” This may not be entirely true, but according to unemployment rates and desperate employers, it might
Laissez-faire prevented the business owners from having to present workers with safe working conditions, this also led to spending less money which meant making more. Morals, Forget them, child labor was another cost cutter and allowed the business owners to make even more money!

Marx would see these inequality as inherently unfair, and only exists because the bourgeoisie control the political, economic and social resources while the proletariat do all the hard labor. Functionalism does not encourage people to take an active role in changing their social environment, even when such change may benefit them. Instead, functionalism sees active social change as undesirable because the various parts of society will compensate in a seemingly natural way for any problems that may arise.The data in the second table shows the top five reasons the population do not have health care coverage. 30% of the highest percentage of people did not have healthcare coverage because they couldn 't afford premiums. 1% of the lowest percentage of people did not have healthcare coverage because they 're healthy so they don 't need insurance.
For those reasons, the practice of socialism must be limited to only in times of national security, but it must be guided in caution as the government 's influence can manipulate its citizens. As a citizen, one must defend the integrity of the United States by speaking up in times of atrocities when the government is against one’s liberties and rights to the Constitution. The “Price of Victory” was beneficial for the war efforts, but ultimately it was at the price of
Farmers being the backbone to the American agriculture and having it fail because of companies, shows just how deep of a hole the Stock market had fallen in. Small farmers could not compete with the new economic climate and were driven out of business. Advances in technology increased production but also caused overproduction of food;however, food demand did not rise with the increased production.

A major cause of the depression was that the pay of employees did not increase. Because of this, people couldn't afford manufactured goods. While the factories were still making the goods, Americans could not afford the goods and the factories made no money. Farmers weren't doing so well because they were growing more crops and farm products than could be sold at high prices. The uneven distribution of wealth that took place throughout the 1920s grew substantially during the Great Depression and the 1930s.
During the Progressive Era, most employers were not concerned with workers rights and focused more on profit than human rights or safety. The poor working class, as well as immigrants who had worked in the United States for a while, became infuriated over the unfair treatment and working conditions of which they suffered.

Workers wanted more money, an eight hour workday, safe working conditions, and protection against wage cutting.

Immigration had a great impact on America by giving more jobs for more trade. Sadly it also was bad, because it made lots of people homeless and vulnerable to death. Immigration was big in the 1800s but america hasn't even seen the start of it
After all, why search for a job when the government can foot your bills? Minimum wage legislation is also another cause of unemployment. By enacting the minimum wage legislation, the government made it almost impossible for small and medium size businesses to hire qualified persons. It is irrational to hire employees when your business cannot pay their salaries. High salaries is against business operation principle of maintaining the lowest possible level of expenditure to maximize profits.
