Some employers also believe that women are not as smart or that they are the second source of income for a household. There are many misconceptions about women and their ability in the workplace. Many of these thoughts stem from long-lived stereotypes and how women were treated in the past.

The first influence on Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird are the Jim Crow laws. The Jim Crow laws were horrible demeaning laws to keep african americans lower than whites. The laws were designed to keep the white class higher and superior to blacks in all areas of work, education and society in general, the jim crow laws were a racial caste system that was mostly in use in the south. ( what was Jim 1) “ Jim crow was more than a series of rigid anti-black laws, it was a way of life.” (Pilgrim 1). “Beginning in the late 1870s, Southern state lawmakers passed laws that required Whites and Blacks to attend separate schools and to sit in different areas on public transportation.” (“Jim Crow Laws” 1).
The whites feared mixing of the race which is the Mongrel Race; because they were afraid the white race would be diluted. So, they did everything keep blacks at the bottom. The Southern states reacted by creating and enforcing Jim Crow laws. The Jim Crow was a system created as a segregation of colored people and white people, but mainly focusing on blacks. These laws existed because of the idea of being superior (Ferris State University, 2012).
The readers learn about the Cunninghams after Scout gets in trouble at school with Miss Caroline. Scout notices that the Cunninghams do not have lunch and that they cannot even borrow a quarter. Scout argues with Miss Caroline when Miss Caroline tells Walter, “‘Here’s a quarter” she said to Walter. “‘Go and eat downtown today. You can pay me back tomorrow.”’ (page 19).
On Scout’s first day of school, he knows a range of things that the other students do not know about, and that makes miss Caroline anxious. She finds out that Scout has been studying how to read with her father Atticus. Miss Caroline is displeased with her because she already knows how to read. Walter Cunningham is a member of a less fortunate family. Walter tells miss Caroline that he did not bring any lunch, so miss Caroline gives him a nickel, and asks him to pay her back later on.
The black male has a broader range of experiences on oppression than the white male because of the segregation of race in South Africa in 1948. The blacks suffered discrimination and treated as though they did not deserve to live. The whites lived lavishly and were respected in the community. “Don’t you think that more schooling simply means cleverer criminals?” (p. 69) This quote suggests that if a black male is given the same opportunity as a white male, the black male would turn out to be a man who will use his ability for the worse. As seen through this quote the whites have an inherent belief that the blacks are lower-ranking people and therefore will generalize and assume that all black South Africans are the inferior group of people.
Things got worse when her teacher, offered a quarter to Walter Cunningham, a farmer’s son, who kindly denied the money for lunch. When Miss Caroline didn’t seem to understand, Scout explained that Walter and his family suffer from poverty, and would not be able to pay her back with money. Scout then further narrates that one time Atticus served as the Cunningham’s lawyer and having no money to repay Atticus, the Cunninghams pay Atticus in the form of stovewood, hickory nuts, smilax, holly, and turnips. After the incident, Jem invites Walter over for lunch, hesitantly Walter joined them.While eating their meal, Walter pours molasses or syrup “On his vegetables and meat with a generous hand.” Scout instantly made a remark, embarrassing Walter in the process. By making a remark it is clear to see how different the Cunningham and Finch’s lifestyles and status
Thirdly, in Everything I Never Told You, the Lee kids, and particularly Lydia, were not as popular as the other kids, they were not invited to go out on the weekends, they never to birthday parties, and they were not the recipients of after school phone calls to chat about the drama that happened at school that day. During lunch, “Lydia sits silent while others chatter,” because they are not really her friends (Ng, 15). Hurt by the fact that no one will be friends with her due to the fact that she is a different race, Lydia “sits for hours on the window seat on the landing” pretending she is on the phone with friends when, in reality, she is “rattling off assignments” to herself with no one on the other end of the call (Ng, 15-16). The malefactors of these discriminatory and xenophobic acts, whether they were
Ehrenreich chooses to share her bad experiences working at her restaurant, Jerry’s, which shows how degrading the work was to her and other staff members. One short experience she had at her old work was when she tried to eat on her lunch break she was told she couldn’t, basically screamed “No eating!” because the boss didn’t want her to be seen by customers. She didn’t understand why it would be so horrible to be seen eating, so she quit that job and stayed with Jerry’s. It wasn’t like Jerry’s was any better though, she worked hard every day and no matter how exhausted she would be she was told to continue because the customers need to be served. Everyone at Jerry’s was chugging ibuprofens to relieve the physical strain put on their body.
Even if these students entered these classes they had a probability that they wouldn’t have a teacher for that course. “Out of the 180 teacher-slots, typically 25 or so cannot be filled and have to be assigned to substitutes” and that is for the spots the school cannot fill, furthermore some teachers didn’t even show up for class at all they the students would have at least a sub everyday. After attending a teacher meeting Jonathan noticed that the students didn’t pick the classes they wanted to take they just put in classes until they filled up and than move on to a different class. The library was closed for almost a quarter of the year every year because of testing or other stuff that being said the students

It was even worse for females of color as discrimination ran rampant during the progressive era, with lynchings, police brutality, mobs, and other dangers out in the world females of color were degraded for not only being women but for being of a different ethnicity. “Comparison, black women only narrowed that gap by 9 cents, from earning 56 cents for every dollar earned by a white man in 1980 to 65 cents today.” "Racial, Gender Wage Gaps Persist in U.S. despite Some" N.p., n.d.
The Cunninghams were not the richest people. They would only take what they know they could pay back. The Cunninghams were hit hardest by the depression, because of this, they had little to no money. When Walter Jr. was in school and his teacher offered to loan him money, Scout had to explain to her teacher what was happening. Scout was trying to explain their state in class one day during lunch to Ms. Caroline, “He didn’t forget his lunch, he didn’t have any.
