He further breaks down this plan stating, “An American household with an income of $50,000 spends around $30,000 annually on necessities”, and that, “for a household bringing in $50,000 a year, donations to help the world poor should be as close as possible to $20,000” (Singer 665).

In the article, “Bridges or Barriers”, the writer tells the readers that “Community colleges have a critical role to play in providing access to the American dream.” Community colleges do have a critical role in achieving the American dream, but in order to achieve success you’re going to have to want it.

Sixty-five percent of students from families with incomes of less than $20,000 attend community colleges”, that’s a high percentage of families receiving a very low income.

George sacrifices the chance to have a better and more fulfilled life to stay with Lennie. First, when George was introducing himself and Lennie to their new boss, he said, “I never seen one guy take so much trouble for another guy.” This shows that George was portraying that he cares about Lennie enough to be picked up on by others.

The Industrial Revolution resulted in many huge changes in society, including a growth in capitalism. The social and political effects have produced a great amount of debate. Andrew Ure, Karl Marx, and Adam Smith all had differing views on industrial capitalism and opinions about what its social consequences would be. Ure’s “The Philosophy of Manufactures,” Marx’s “The Communist Manifesto,” and Smith’s “Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations” all portray their perspectives.
Moreover, with the rise of industries and the correlated wealth of their leaders, the pockets of the lower classes especially those of immigrants and farmers dwindled greatly. For example, in Document 2, Charles Loring Brace summarizes the lifestyle of the impoverished simply labeling their communities as “vagrant” and “idle” as these people drowned in “wretched rooms” completing “street-jobs” as a way to supply for their families. This portrayal of these people by Brace demonstrates the difficult life of a worker for even if they were able to come home with something, it was useless to their wellbeing. Ways of living such as those presented in Document 2, led to unions that fought to protect basic rights of those who were powerless such as the National Labor Union and Knights of Labor.
