During the time of the Great Depression people did not know about mental disabilities and that is why Lennie was not treated fairly. Lennie got into a lot of trouble at work, which caused for him and George to find different jobs all the time. An example of when Lennie and George had to leave a job because of Lennie’s actions was when they were in Weed and Lennie touched the girl’s dress and would not let go.

People during this time period were unaware of mental disabilities which made it hard for them to get jobs.

It was an innate reaction to feel out of place there for Sylvia.
As Ripley’s article states, “The concept of assigning a price tag to a life has always made people intensely squeamish. After all, isn’t it degrading to presume that money can make a family whole again?” Her statement rings true; no amount of money can replace a child’s father, or the only daughter of a family. It feels immoral to try to replace someone with money, so much so, that people will often ask for more, even when dealing with remarkably large sums of money. It is at this point when the victim’s families must realize that the money is not meant to make up for the death of a loved one, just ease the pain. As Phillip Bobbitt said in Ripley’s article, “We’re not trying to make you psychologically

The author’s purpose is to persuade the audience to boycott businesses that use celebrities for advertising their brand. Jozui clarifies her argument in a persuasive manner for consumers. Celebrities should participate in advertisements if they want, because they have a right to and grabbing consumers attention is how companies gain profits. Some people might assume that the celebrities that are promoting a product might not even use that product, and that there is a possibility that it might not work.

This machine can sew faster than people and requires less skill to operate, and therefore will look good to a money-seeking employer.
