The accumulation in population added onto the problem by leaving more people to be replaced by machines and eventually become poor. This generation brought many people and there wasn’t a sure reason on why, but the size multiplied by as much as three sizes (Avery 123). Most explanation on why population built was because of longer life span, immigration, and survival of infants (Avery 120). The men tried to get occupations, but all of the leftover positions were unskilled and still left them not being able to provide anything for their families. Wages were so low that even when one worked, they barely had enough to live on, so without a job there was no money to fall back on.
Every immigrant who came to this country in the 1920’s chose the short straw. Everyone faced a hardship whether it was economic, social, or spiritual. Americans then saw this problem and falsely concluded that these people don’t work hard enough to battle their hardships, which is why they cannot move up the social ladder. However, there are other factors such as class to oppress, repress and create a false mindset of the poor. This is portrayed in Betty Smith’s A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.
Instead, it will bring about social exclusion and lead to social segregation between the rich and the poor. This is evident not only in the aspects of income but also other aspects such as education, health and housing. Children often have to work outside of school so that they can provide income for their families. Hence, they are unable to fully enjoy the benefits of education, even though it is fully funded for. This leads to a poverty cycle, as they often do not have the skills and knowledge required in the workforce, reducing their potential income, therefore being unable to walk out of poverty.
The lives of people in some of the third world countries are completely different from the developed country in much more prosperous condition. Thus, when people in developed country heard about the people working for $0.30 to $0.50 per hour, they would think that it’s completely absurd the labor forces but those people did not realize that those amount of money is acceptable to those people in the third country and it can keep them out from the street. Also, many children in the third world country have no other option but to go to the sweatshops to work to support their family rather than on street begging the people for money. Otherwise, those children would be left on the streets with danger, crime and with no other means of earning a living to support their family. Sweatshops give them an opportunity to try and support themselves and this maybe the only hope that those hopeless children can have.

They are paid very low wages and are also treated like slaves, such as cruelly punishing them for errors and straining them to work for long periods. As a result, they are not provided with proper health care, which consequently, causes malnutrition in some situations. The Human Rights Watch observes, “In June 2007, 500 middle school children in the western territory of Sichuan were found actively in work for 14 hours in a factory in Dongguan, Guangdong Province, as part of their summer employment.
There are many other traps around America that deceive the immigrants because their weakness of not knowing English and the desire of getting a great life in America which lead them unpreparedly get fooled by the businessmen. These traps prevented the immigrants from leaving America, because of the significant amount of debt that they have to pay each month, which forced them to keep working and become the slave of this capitalistic society in America.
