Parents are one of the causes for child labor especially illiterate parents. Some parents are not able to work so they force their children to work instead of them. Hence, children are more easily employed because they get less money paid than adults and they are easier to get abused. Other cause that is the seedbed of child labor and the biggest cause for child labor is Poverty. In some poor countries, the government doesn't help poor families by providing education, health care or find for them work to get money.
The late nineteenth century was a pivotal moment in American history. During this time, the Industrial Revolution transformed the nation, railroads had dissipated all throughout the country, and economic classes began to form, separating the wealthy from the poor. One of the wealthiest men of this generation was Andrew Carnegie, a Scottish immigrant who fled to America to make millions off the railroad, oil and even steel businesses. Carnegie is considered one of the richest men in history, and even with all that wealth he decided to give back to the community. As a matter of fact, Carnegie donated most of his funds to charities, universities and libraries in his last few years.
They have to deal with only making a small amount of money and working in harsh conditions at times, in order to make that little money that they do. Living in a foreign country and making only minimum wage can be hard and it’s even harder if you have no family or none that you can talk to, many of these immigrants leave their families behind in order to make money to be able to provide and have a better living back home. Cultural awareness: I think that this film was a reminder to me that many families do go through this and it is not easy to do. We sometimes take things for granted, like having our family around or making “x” amount of money at our job. These individuals make less than most of us do and they still are able to send it back home and provide for their families.
In regards the Plummer case, I think that the heart of the problem is that Plummer Sr wasn’t prepared for any management succession. To began with his son who lacked passion in his father business but was obligated to work with him due to his father sickness. Plummer Jr worked in the company from nine years and was named a successor by his father. After the death of Plummer Sr, his son found out that 24% of the company sales were declined. The company suffered from a poor financial managing, which was managed by his father, who 's willingly helped his employee financially that caused a swollen pay roll.
The high classes that could afford to buy these goods had already bought them and the low classes couldn't afford them, even with the high discounts the company made to sell them. Besides, due to the loss of the export market, the industries could only sell inside the US. Prices went down and people still wouldn´t buy the overproduced goods, so companies lost loads of money. If some of this money came from the bank, the owners couldn't afford to pay their loans and the banks lost that money. For example, farmers overproduced goods that nobody bought, and, if they couldn't pay their loans, the bank would take their land away.
In the excerpt, “Father”, Walker states “It hurts me to think that for both my parents, poor people, my arrival represented many more years of backbreaking and spirit–crushing toil.” This suggests that Alice’s parents were poor and barely had enough money to support their family. Unlike Alice, Amir’s dad was actually wealthy enough to support him and Amir. In “The Kite Runner”, Amir states how his dad has maids and even owns a orphanage, which requires money to run. Their differences in finance can create tension because in any terrible situation such as when the Taliban took over Amir’s family would have a higher chance to survive than Alice’s since they have money. Money can create a lot of problems and decision making in their life’s.
Although, The Great Gatsby may be seen as trying to challenge the privilege of the old rich it is really reinforcing their status and casting a critical light on the new rich. Through the characters of Gatsby and Tom, Fitzgerald may appear to be challenging the power dynamic of the wealth, but once Gatsby’s flaws are brought in then the reader can see that Fitzgerald is supporting the power of the old rich. Gatsby always wanted to be rich and does become rich, but we learn that he did not become rich from his own hard work. To try to earn his wealth Gatsby went to “the small Lutheran college of St. Olaf’s in southern Minnesota. He stayed there two weeks, dismayed at its ferocious indifference to the drums of his destiny, to destiny itself, and despising the janitor’s work with which he was to pay his way” (99).
He could have had a stable job and been laid off from work. First, he would lose the car, later the house, eventually himself and is now living as a homeless man. He was just an average, everyday fellow that didn’t get the best set of cards. This does not mean that he is careless or that it’s necessarily his fault for being homeless. Person B, on the other hand, is a successful man, the CEO of a thriving company.
In earlier times, farmers grew their own food, made their own tools, and were generally self-sufficient. They bought very few times from shopkeepers, and they bought only what they could pay for. But when farmers started borrowing money to buy machines, fertilizer, and land, they lost their independence to merchants and bankers. Independence is how farmers make the majority of their income, but as one of the consequences, farmers can 't only rely on themselves anymore. They have to be dependent on the machines if they want to be more efficient with their work.
Social construction is a way of describing the way a person life, what might seem normal or natural to a person who life has been by the way they have been raised up in, but to society it could be bad influences. Another example of social construc-tion is the use of money, which is worth everything, because society has decided to treat it as valuable. Social class has a profound effect on society, a person wealth between the richest and poorest. Oxfam reported show the difference between rich and poor and how it has grown significantly in the past twenty years, to the extent that just five of the richest families are now wealthier than the poorest 20% of the population in the U.K combined. the rich are getting richer and the poor struggling to make their money last, relying more on food banks and benefits (Oxfam GB, 2018).
