The Dust Bowl had a negative impact on rural families because most of them could not escape the effects of dust storms. According to Trimarchi, many farmers faced foreclosure on their land because they were not earning enough money on crops to pay back their debts (Trimarchi, 2018). The Dust Bowl also caused soil erosion across the plains which led to crop failure. Farmers were not able to make any profit with their failing crops, this contributed to many farmers losing their land due to foreclosure. According to Ganzel, it was common for families in the Midwest to only eat one-dish meals and most families relied on chicken eggs for food (Ganzel, 2003).
Because they were now wanting to do the work that was previously being done by Mexican and Filipinos there were too many workers for the jobs so the wages were very low. Since they couldn’t afford housing, many of the migrant farm workers camped near the farms irrigation ditches near the farms they were working on. They were living in tents or out of their cars. The lack of sanitation cause health issues for many workers and their
Likewise farmers had to pay a middle man in the East to sell their commodities in the East, because the poor farmers were unable to travel all the way to the East to sell their products then come back to start farming for the next year. Surprisingly, farmers were often detrimental to themselves due to
Children were put into many dangerous situations but their parents were unable to afford to hire workers on the farms because of the financial and ecological disasters. In the face of these disasters children helped their families recover from the
But not everyone is happy. Four hundred people have signed a petition complaining, they received no compensation after being a victim from land, their families have farmed and where there animals have grazed for generations. They spoke unconditionally and it would remain anonymous. One said, we want development of our country, but we cannot because the land is in the hands of government. You can work on your land and all of a sudden they push you out of the
These are both areas which the W B and UNDP believe can make a difference to countries, if they are dealt with. First, geographical problems have a bad effect on the economy of Pakistan and its development. Pakistan has 70 % of its income based upon agriculture, but now there is no reliable source of water. This is because all of the rivers coming from India have no water any more due to dams which were built by India to save water for their agriculture. Due to lack of water the production of food has become less and the income of country is affected.
The poor people are in lack of education, shelter, food, cloth, security and income earnings. Most of all, they are under poverty line. Poverty is their constant companion.We face three mainproblem economically, politically and environmentally. The economy of Bangladesh is mostlyagricultural. But scientific method of cultivation is not yet familiarized.
Due to various limitations they are unable to procure fixed assets which results in them depending purely on their daily earnings. Another aspect to the relatively poor is the presence of one source of income in a household unlike most households where multiple members contribute to the household economy; this makes the financial situation tighter and more difficult to live with. This sector of population in the country mostly consists of unskilled labour so most take up blue-collar jobs, serve as domestic help and other easily replaceable jobs like bus conductors, auto-rickshaw drivers, clerks etc. These jobs provide neither sufficient income nor livelihood security. Unlike the rural poor, the urban poor do not have the advantage of depending on agriculture for sustenance.
Migrant workers are often trapped by debts because their wages are deducted to pay their brokers, who provide them jobs. In some serious cases, migrant workers are never paid and subject to a modern form of slavery. Furthermore, Thai law only provides registered migrants with rights to basic social service and labor law, but the law does not apply to non-registered migrants. Consequently, the latter fails to access social services. (World Bank, 2006) Although there are several sources of information provided concerning migrant workers in Thailand, most of them are the researches which conducted in rural areas, especially in the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS).
In the absence of guaranteed source of irrigation, more than half of the arable land is used for growing few food Cereals only once in a year, which restricts the employment opportunity for the members of the house hold, it means these farmers have only 120-150 regular work days in a year. In the absence of employment opportunity from industrial and service sectors, the district households have no source of employment which directly affects their income and purchasing power. The informants said that the low purchasing power leads them to threaten by food insecurity. Besides low income, other causes for food insecurity in the study area are lack of credit facilities particularly to obtain food during the lean season, inadequate food distribution outlets and non availability of different varieties of food grains. Problem of Low Agricultural Production: As most of the households own small and poor quality of land and are deprived of irrigation and necessary inputs, the crop yields are low and home grown food grains are not adequate to satisfy their
