This resulted into their rights and whom they worked for. As a peasant, you were almost considered a slave because you were told what to do by higher classes but, the difference was peasants could not be sold throughout different manors by lords (How would you survive in the middle ages 6). Peasants also contributed by doing hard labor for people of the upper classes. Since the manor was self sufficient, noblemen had all the peasants do the work to provide for the entire county. The only true benefit they got from the manor was protection of the knights.
Slavery enters human history with civilization. Primitive farmers and hunter-gathers had no use for slaves as they collected and grew food for only themselves. The extra person would only mean another person that would need to be fed. As civilization developed and people moved to towns and cities, it allowed a surplus of food from large estates in the countryside. Citizens in the town developed a wide range of crafts as not everyone needed to be a farmer.
When the Feudal System was brought into Europe in the Middle Ages by William the Conqueror, it greatly impacted on the peasants’ lives. The peasants had to live a hard life during the Middle Ages working out on the fields. The peasants lived a short life with the average life expectancy being around thirty-five years old for men and twenty-five years old for women. There weren’t many positives for the peasants regarding the Feudal System, but some of them were that they got rewarded fiefs in return for working free labour. The peasants provided food for their family and the community which they grew in return for the supplies needed to live a healthy life.
The Skunk Hollow settlers were more prosperous than other African-American families in the township because most of the Skunk Hollow residents owned property by 1854. Mr. Earnest, Benjamin Charlton and James Oliver were the earliest settlers of Skunk Hollow. In 1806, Jack Earnest, a freed slave, exchanged $87.50 for five acres near what is now Alpine, New Jersey. The wooded terrain had been deforested by its white owners, and then sold off because of difficulty farming the land with its rock outcroppings, steep hills and swamps.
This labor system reducued their risk when cotton prices were low and encouraged workers to increase production without costly supervision (Of the people, 467). Which ultimately created another advantage for the workers because they were now being rewarded with a share of the land they worked so hard to harvest within a year 's time. Overall I greatly believe that sharecropping was an acceptable way to help achieve economic freedom, especially for the blacks. They no longer had to do indescribable work that in the end did not benefit them, only the owners of the land that they occupied. They were able to acquire a contract that not only benefited them, with the chance to actually have a sense of "owning" land showing independence, but also benefiting the land-owners with them still earning a profit from the portions of land they rented out to the free
The middle class were decently off, they still had to work for their things and they had a small amount of money left over, usually. They were usually employed by the upper class or were farmers. The lower/poor class did not do too well. They often had jobs as servants or were workers on farms. The women would have to do all the housework while the men tried to earn enough money to feed their family.
The slaves did America a huge favor since they weren’t allowed to stop working, they got a lot of work done which let America have so much crop and material that the African Americans did for them. The people didn’t disserve the cruel and unreasonable punishment that they received. The
They could support their families without any monetary issues. Since they were leading prosperous lives this brought about great influences among their elite circles. The working class, on the other hand, did not prosper as well as the middle class. They worked extremely hard within the factories. This meant that they would work from six to seven days and up to more than eight hours.
What are the differences that made farming society so different from hunter-gatherer’s society? Hunter-gatherers and farming societies had totally different lifestyles. Hunter-gatherers moved very often, because there was not enough food in the same place for a long time. Farmers had their farms so there was no purpose of moving. Since they had permanent houses, they could storage their food, so it could be regulated.
She depended on her husband's job to support the family financially. However, this varied depending on the family's social class. Poor women usually had more rights than rich women, regarding jobs. They ran the house, but also occasionally helped her husband with his work. A woman living in the county was responsible for maintaining a vegetable garden and keeping animals healthy.
Sharecropping emerged because slaves that did not move away from plantations. IT was a product of the struggles of the Reconstruction and was in part was a good fit for cotton agriculture. Cotton unlike sugarcane, could be raised efficiently by small farmers. Sharecroppers’ freedom meant not only their individuals lots and cabins but also the school and churches. They could work on their own terms and establish rights to marry, read and write as they pleased, and travel in search of a better life.
They thought that working hard on the plantation without any payment would not get them anywhere, so they ran away and stayed in small villages. Lastly, the economic causes of the French revolution were the high taxes for the middle class people during that time. The slaves worked day and night to earn money but because of the taxes that the nobles proposed, they could not pay for it. Therefore, there was a large economic strain on France which was not the case with Haiti since they were thriving due to free labour and surplus goods. Despite their differences, the French and Haitian revolutions are also similar because of St. Domingue which was the common link between France and Haiti.
Their food came from their crops and gardens. Sometimes droughts in Nebraska made it very difficult to feed their families and still have some left over to sell. Which was difficult because this is how they earned a living. Most pioneers lived in sod houses. These were insulated which was very convenient for Pioneer families during the different seasons.
From an employer’s point of view he is under qualified from certain jobs because of the human capital he currently possessed, which was of a hillside farmer in Laos with little to no conversable English. In this situation, all he can rely on is his social capital, whether it may be the refugees services available to him and his family, his relatives who arrived to America before him, or almost any other Hmong person who is able to speak both Hmong and English and is willing to help Hang out. It is safe to assume he was able to find work and support his family one way or another, however one cannot say for certain whether or not he partook in a chain-migration, which typically occurred with many other Hmong
The Europeans lived a different life that the Native Americans might not be able to adapt to so they view them as prehistoric and backwards. The Native Americans lived a life that you have to work hard for, they did not have up to date weapons as the Europeans had. Everything the Native Americans had were made in their village, most likely handmade, such clothes and canoes. They saw the trade with the Europeans as good because they were given things that were not used to. The Europeans viewed the trade with the Native Americans as a huge bonus to them because they gave away small unnecessary thing in exchange for the Native Americans crops that they worked hard to grow.
