As of the 1930’s the Great Depression occurred causing many people to migrant Midwest and south of California. A lot of these people did not have money for homes, they were known as “bums” and “homeless.” As time progressed, World War II occurred, followed by the Vietnam War. Once both wars were over, the population in what is known now as Skid Row prolonged. Many of the veterans began to settle at Skid Row because they were emotionally damaged, needed an easy way of finding drugs and cheap alcohol.
At that time London 's populations was also growing. In that time the law stated that the government should give money to people who can not work. But, those who could work had to find jobs. And because people sometimes could not find work the government created workhouse where people work hours in exchange for food and if you did this you were looked down at and treated poorly. Londoners at that time had to deal with crime because it was common in London.
People stopped using their cars for leisure and this greatly affected the tourism in California. Southern California automobile tourism saw a huge hit. “Blame seekers targeted advertisers for over stimulating consumer desires,” (J. Otts page 59) for the reason why the stock market crashed. They blamed the advertisements for being so good, that consumers couldn’t resist, which caused them to buy more than they could afford. Quickly people started to notice “a trickle of migrants,” (J. Otts page 60) and they weren’t coming to California for tourism, but instead in look of work.
The precipitous decline of the area’s manufacturing base resulted in a loss of a job that allow skilled union worker to have a middle class life in south central los Angeles . The service sector, which had long been dominated by unionized African Americans earning relatively high wages, so they replaced most black worker with newly arrived Mexican and Central American immigrant worker. Because they would work for lower wage and cause of their lack of knowledge of understanding and speaking English. Because of the widespread unemployment, poverty and street contributed to the rise of the street gangs in Los Angeles central, such as like Crips and Bloods because they need money to survive.

As the Super Bowl festivities continue to grow, slowly but surely many of San Francisco’s homeless people are being kicked out of their spots and are being gathered into shelters. In the article published by Alison Vekshin, “San Francisco nudges homeless away from Super Bowl fan village,” she expresses how the media does not want San Francisco to be viewed with poverty so they are kicking out the poor people to make room for activities and media signs that are associated with the Super Bowl. People are focusing too much on what makes them look good, but in reality when people hear about these unbelievable stories they think of them in a wrong way and it makes them look unpropitious. It is very obvious that people only want to see a
Many people have heard of human trafficking, yet many people just turn a blind eye to the issue. In a sense that if it is out of sight it is out of mind. Which is why we need a response team for the individuals who are able to move past these experiences and make it out on top. They need help as well as support. The problem is many of the victims of sex trafficking are stuck and do not know how to get out.
In Of Mice And Men there are so many human rights problems that it makes me wonder how did some people go from dirt poor to wealthy. The main human right problem in Of Mice And Men is that Lennie can’t get the healthcare that he needs because he is poor. After reading the novel and doing some research I have found a solution to this human rights problem that can help lots of people and could help Lennie. The solution I have found is that the government could tax people a little bit more than they are normally taxed and in return the government can use that money to inform people about people with mental illnesses and the government can also about up healthcare buildings so people can go get the health care that they need and deserve.
What is gentrification? Gentrification to me is nothing more than a system that robs the locals of their neighborhood by changing what made the neighborhood unique in order to turn a profit and make it a more desirable place to live. It is easily recognizable by the amount of construction occurring and the remodeling of homes, stores parks etc. this is commonly seen in low-income neighborhoods because it has a great starting ground.
According to Mother Jones, “Over the past decade, Republican legislators have pushed a number of measures critics say are blatant attempts to suppress minority voting, including voter ID requirements, shortened early voting periods, and limits on same-day voter registration. But minority voters are often disenfranchised in another, more subtle way: polling places without enough voting machines or poll workers.” These restrictions cause a lower percentage of voter turnouts within the population of minorities. Due to this discrimination minorities are not correctly represented in society causing a greater bias towards undermining the minority. According to CNN, minorities in America have “less confidence in the criminal justice system” compared to white Americans.
People migrated from all over the world, there was very high number of immigrants in port cities. Most of the immigrants where too poor to move on further in, which cause very high numbers of population in those areas.
