But unable to acquire these funds he was reduced to poverty. “…so, had rather leave a Place where I have no Prospect of advancing myself, than to continue here where I have not Friends to relive me.” (16) His only solution was to sell himself as an indentured servant in the American colonies in hopes of creating a new and better life for himself.

The Industrial Revolution brought down the prices of crops produced by farmers, this meant that farmers were not making enough money to pay off their debts. This increasing problem was slowly digging farmers into a hole with what seemed to be no escape. To add on to their everlasting money problems, middlemen and railroad companies were price gouging the farmers. This meant, the companies were asking farmers to pay prices which had been far higher than the actual value of the products needed for the farmers to raise crops. Companies did this, because they knew that farmers could not buy their goods from other businesses due to the fact that there were not any others in sight.
An example of disagreeing with the author would be that people are not wealthy enough to afford tickets or tax codes so they would not care and try to sneak past it. This world has many poor citizens and they would do a lot just to try and get food or they do not have to time to think about the law when they have to worry about where are they going to sleep the next day. Many ways they can avoid this is by learning from thier mistakes. if someone gets caught littering or speeding then they give that person a small ticket so you will not do it again and you will not become a criminal.This example shows that they will teach you to be a better person by giving them a minor law .Many other ways to see what scofflaws are doing wrong can be as simple as being lazy or being in a rush. This argument can extend to many different ways people can improve their social

Most people would not be able or even want to handle that kind of stress.
How would you respond in a society full of standards that you know you had no chance of reaching because of limited opportunities? In Richard Wright 's native son the character of Bigger lives in an area which is strongly influenced by poverty and he has now way to change that, and instead of acting in a civil manner he takes the approach in which society gives him. In this society work opportunities were limited so this already puts him in the negative for him to provide for his family, and even proved for his own personal needs. The standards of this society prohibited any black male from being successful and furthered their possibilities of getting into any trouble. Bigger responds working with a white family and by breaking his oppression
Apart from the class conflict, the proletariat also has psychological trauma in securing jobs as their chances are low and the fact that they could be laid off easily by the bourgeoisie. It is so unfortunate that, people’s way of life have been regulated and structured to norms and values from different groups of ideological apparatus. All these ideas have immensely contributed to the ways people have been exploited. This is because their behaviours have been so structured that people find it so easy to adapt and comply with the rules and regulations governing each set of the
Haiti has had a challenging history, from having an ongoing political oppression, to soil erosion which impacts its food supply for overpopulation in a small country, and the lack of a well developed education program which leads to illiteracy amongst the small country. The life inherited of an average Haitian concludes to daily misery and hardships, where this is unimaginable to people of a richer nation, such as the United States, who actually contributed in the past to their difficult life. Also, these life struggles are also not felt by the rare three percent of the population who have actually obtained the riches that were blessed by inheritance into an upper class
