Another con about Walmart 's that they “are putting to death all of the small business in the world”. While the Walmart company gets bigger, smaller business vanish and run out of business. Shoppers think they are getting a good deal on extremely cheap price, but it actually makes our taxes higher(morris). Walmart makes them look flawless and make everyone else look like crap. But in reality they are not.

The owners forced them to live in isolated communities near workshops and forced them to buy goods with high interests. The cities were poorly constructed and crowded with people and residents. The work was also dangerous with not much supervising by the government.Workers, on the other hand, had little or even no bargaining power to leave the unsafe conditions. Nowadays, When Americans only pay attention when extreme work strike, levels of abuse are the norm hidden in the factories around the globe. Although the condition seems much improved, consumers don’t know the true fact- “Today, American citizens simply cannot know the working conditions of the factories that make the products they buy.
The people who did grasp their money spent less on items that they needed because prices skyrocketed, which in return got people getting laid off from their jobs, worsening the economy and losing even more money. Then, the environment started to play a role. Major dust storms swept through the prairies, leaving farmers with no crops and no ways to get food or make money. These additional effects to the stock market crash made the banks take people’s belongings, homes, vehicles, and anything that they had. The future looked bleak during this time for many.
In document 3, Wang Xijue is a government official for Ming China. He is reporting that although the Chinese government is collecting a great deal of money in taxes, by demanding tax payments in silver the government is actually hurting the economy. Because all the silver is spent to pay taxes there is very little left for people to use to buy farm products or tools or to hire laborers. Since they cannot afford to pay much in silver prices and wages are dropping. This is driving some farmers out of business.

In Luis Alberto Urrea’s Across the Wire, he gives his personal experiences while he volunteers on the Mexican side of the border. Individuals attempting to cross the border, do so with hopes of better lives and opportunities, because most are unemployed and live under impoverished conditions. Many are unsuccessful in their attempts at crossing the border, and as a result they are sent back. This caused a vast population of poverty stricken adults to live in horrific conditions.
Walmart was founded in the summer of 1962 by Kingfisher, Oklahoma native Sam Walton. Although Walton’s original vision for the store was relatively modest, the half century since its founding has seen Walmart morph into one of the biggest companies in the world. Today headed by one Doug McMillon, Walmart boasts more than 5000 stores in the United States of America alone and employs more than 1.5 million people. Walmart is undoubtedly an American institution, yet each Walmart store feels like its own little country. Walmart seems to have its own laws and customs and the people who shop their on a regular basis appear almost primitive in their behavior as they go about raiding the store’s shelves and wrestling with fellow customers for discount flat screen televisions and bulk packages of two-ply toilet paper.

While dust bowls ravished crops in the west, inflation swept the country entirely. Women were beginning to be excluded once again from the work force, and many lost their jobs since not many could afford recreational services or products. Cultural and white supremacy bias ensued the depression, as people of non-caucasian descent were discriminated against; for example, African Americans would sometimes lose their jobs to white men, as they were valued more crucial to the economy, and Asian Americans were often clumped into Chinatowns while the still prevalent hostility existed towards them. Leaving office during the depression, Wilson passed on the fate of the country to Hoover, where minimal effort was achieved; if anything, the economy worsened, as Hoover used government spending inefficiently. The Depression Era was a gloomy ten years with scarce happiness and persistent melancholy due to a series of unfortunate events in American economic history.ll future means of income from this
The health or waste of money for the citizens in this case is not important to the owners. The conditions of the factory in The Jungle were horrid. As previously stated, there were leaks in the ceiling, rodents crawling about, no heat in the cold winter of Chicago, and the work was very difficult which even resulted in the death of an old man employed there. (Sinclair). The owners would not have invested in proper working conditions because this would have cost them money.
"In third world countries, there are people willing to do anything for money. In such extreme poverty these people barely have enough to eat, living in shacks and sleeping on dirt floors. (Page 4 Para 3). "A study in India discovered that in the long run, organ sellers suffer. In the illegal kidney trade, nobody has the sellers interests at heart.
Once they get to America, they realize that life here was not all that it was cracked up to be. They get mistreated, and their daily lives become very challenging. It is very hard for them to find jobs, and once they do, they get paid little to no money at all. Both the Flint Water Crisis and The Jungle have many similarities. They both are real life stories on how government officials let many people suffer due to corruption in the government.
Positions in the government would be sold and votes would be bought. This was also the age with the forgettable presidents because they didn’t do anything. While the presidents weren’t that special some of them did make a couple awful laws that excluded immigrants. Many people disliked immigrants because they felt that they were taking away jobs and making jobs lower wages. It came to a point that the U.S. created immigration stations.
Quoting Wal-Mart, Mr. Holt-Gimenez explains, “If you’ve always lived near a grocery store, or fresh market, here’s something you’ve probably never considered: There are neighborhoods across the United States where it is nearly impossible to find fresh produce. These places are called ‘Food Deserts’ and Walmart is committed to removing them from our communities” (525). Access to fresh, high-quality food is a major factor in today’s obesity problem and the reason why lower income individuals suffer from higher obesity. Lower income residents, often with no access to transportation other than the public system, are at the mercy of the food offerings that are within a few blocks from their home. With no grocery stores or fresh markets around, their choices are limited to fast, low-quality take out or pre-packaged foods void of any nutritious value.
(Grudem, W. p.81) When you see governments working against the poor of their land, you realize that escaping poverty in some countries is rare. More people would probably start businesses, if they did not see them as evil. There are many negative thoughts in the world towards business, and rightly so. We hear about high priced executives with wild spending habits, exploitation of young labor, and their unethical business practices. It is no surprise that many people fear going into business, or view business as evil in itself.
