His first play won him notoriety and wealth, which fueled his desire to speak out using his writings as a sounding board. “Voltaire wrote Candide in part as a response to a piece of news that shook him, and many of his contemporaries badly.

This is shown in the book when Elie thought that he was going to die by the
Coal miners will always continue to fight for their rights to fair wages and health benefits. However, its apparent from the readings in class and this documentary that because coal miners were of a low social class often called hillbilly’s the mining corporations thought they could use them without giving them their full rights to fair wages and health compensation.
