This problem was especially worse for immigrant workers as their belief in the so-called American dream has been worn down due to the misery they had to endure. Immigrant workers were limited of their freedom and constantly exploited due to the fact that they were working in hazardous working conditions, were living in deplorable conditions, and were being harassed under the intimidating power of corrupt politicians. Such miseries the immigrants had to face included the hazardous working conditions where they had to stay for long hours. There was no doubt that workers had either die or were injured as they worked in such environment. In Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle, the dangers of working conditions are emphasized through Jurgis’ incident at the meatpacking plant.
Instead of there being a prominent government to rule the city, the control lays in the hands of criminal organizations who have been dominating cities in Mexico. This creates a fear of seeing the next day, or wondering if there will be one. The organizations have the ability to take many violent measures at other people and cities in order to make things suitable for them which can make living with “extreme poverty and criminal behavior” (Tang 11) very difficult. Comparing Grande’s novel to Unsettled by Eric Tang, the refugees and immigrants also lived in harsh conditions, having to fend for themselves since nothing was given to them.

Shin Dong-hyuk was born in one of these camps, and he tells his story in his biography, Escape From Camp 14. The book talks about the horrible living conditions inside the camp.
In the "Metamorphosis" Kafka uses metaphors to show several ways that public shaming can lead to the harm of one’s self-esteem; eventually leading to complete isolation. Throughout the story Gregor was isolated from his social life, his family life, and his professional life. The amount of shame that Gregor encountered also led to the lack of communication between him and the members of his family. Although Gregor experienced extreme isolation and self-hate due to public shame, he is one of many people who deal with the pressure of society on a daily basis. The amount of shame and doubt is experienced by people in our society every day and has become somewhat of a norm.
The straining pain is not enough to describe worker's pain at work. There is physical violence by the "soldier" monitoring the workers. The soldiers any whip them, or kick to increase the worker's drive. "The political violence of land wars has pushed them to live in inhospitable climates without easy access to water for crops... forced them to leave home and family... to survive in a new land" (Holmes). The political violence may not appear obvious for the workers, but it is governments fighting to earn the

Many of these countries around Mexico’s southern border are riddled with drug lords and gang violence, many of whom hold more power than the actual government in the local countries. On the government, “It occurs against a backdrop of government institutions that are incapable of meeting the basic needs of the populations”(“FORCED TO FLEE CENTRAL AMERICA’S NORTHERN TRIANGLE”). Many government plans or agencies set up to help people or end up doing nothing to help the citizens of a hostile country.

With nations spending huge on arms and forces, the ill-effects of spending huge and sending huge number of soldiers was leading to poverty. As countries lay in ruins, the economies faced an uphill task of restoring the economy and ensuring people came out of poverty.

Unfortunately, in the 21’st Century we still discover numerous acts of illegal human trafficking around the world. These acts are truly inhumane and intolerable for any human to experience. Human Beings are coerced to work in dreadful conditions with little or no pay at all and are barely given any food to survive. People were not even considered human rather much as animals. We observe the same acts in the novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Where we witness children being sold off to work; Husbands being sold from their wives and; Families torn away from each other.

Numerous individuals in this nation work for a menial pay contrasted with those in industrialized nations, henceforth, they frequently stay poor furthermore don't have adequate protection, for example, social and health insurance. While wealthy companies flourish, small businesses do not have the capital to grow globally and cannot compete in the market leading to a big gap in small business profits and big business profits. Also leading to a crowding after effect on small businesses and more income for the already wealthy corporations which exacerbates inequality between the poor and the rich.
