Unemployment is the effect of isolation.
The camps were fully surrounded with barbed wire and remote in barren deserts or swampy areas (Tong). These particular locations were extremely undesirable due to their seclusion and poor environmental condition. Another factor that contributed to the health issues was the food that was provided at camps. The food given to internees were “unsanitary and often gave children cramps or diarrhea” (Tong). Thus, this lack of nutrition and health deterioration from the food greatly contributed to the substandard conditions that internees endured during World War II.
The time of when cotton factories were running was not safe for children or anyone for that matter. This was a time of hiring people to do the dirty work and get hurt. Children working at the mills were beaten, abused, malnourished, and much more. The cotton mills should have never existed with this kind of abuse happening inside the factories. The fact is that these mills were bad for the health of the workers both physically and mentally.

Once apprenticed to Joe Pip’s snobbery is frightful. Pip is ashamed of being a blacksmith and lives with the constant worry that Estella will one day “[he] being at [his] grimiest and commonest, should lift up [his] eyes and see Estella looking into the windows of the forge” (Dickens 108). The snobby Pips is ashamed of being a blacksmith because it affirms his low class status and limits his great expectations. In his statement “it is the most miserable thing to feel ashamed of home, the word “miserable “suggests that Pip
They even did extreme jobs like prostitution to earn a small amount of money for their families. The working conditions were dreadful as safety wasn’t a priority. The chimney sweeps would come out of chimneys covered in soot, their arms and legs would be bleeding due to crawling under small spaces but no one bothered about it. Occupational deaths were not uncommon for Victorian children. Nonetheless, Great Britain was the first country to impose laws against child labour in the nineteenth century which were then followed by the US.
‘Of Mice and Men’ is a novella set at the time of the ‘Great Depression’, this time period was extremely tough for all Americans due to the lack of stable jobs. Unfortunately, discrimination against black people was extremely prevalent as America was a very racist place. ‘Of Mice and Men’ highlights the discrimination towards black people through Crooks, a black stable buck.

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.
