Resulting, unsatisfactory in the home and on the work place. Not all the women were married as how the functionalist saw it to be, but, they were also fighting for survival. (Elaine Leeder, 2004) emphasized, “Men became wage earners, dependent on their bourgeois bosses and women become dependent on their husbands and fathers. Poor women, if they had no husbands, and children without father were the most marginal laborers and worked in the most exploitative condition.” As result of such condition emerge conflict between classes that would lead to a social revolution. It was the springtime of the people revolution, the basic needs of the family could not be provided due to a high rate of unemployment and bad working condition including poor health system.
Also many homeless people have a mental illness or disability making them unable to have a job. Even those with a job are unable to make a sustainable living off it. Wages are so low that one must work at least two jobs but with housing prices being so high, it makes find a place to live extremely hard. Washington and California have some of the highest minimum wage standards but even that is not a livable wage. We as a society have simplified a solution because many of us do not understand the complex issues that these circumstances
Also because they didn’t get their rights in their country so they went for another one to get the main rights of any human which are a shelter and food and an amount of money enough for him and his family. I don’t think there is another reason for taking the risk except for money. Those people are one of the main reasons behind their deaths but they are poor fellows that can’t
The other represented example of social injustice in the book is the treatment of people who had little income and no education. People lost lots of things during the depression which ruined their lives and quality of life. People are then born into poverty. When people grow up without money, they must leave school early to go to work to help pay for things. When they do this, they lose so much education that they could have received.
The face of poverty. Typically the face of poverty in South Africa is in the rural areas where they face problems of unemployment, Aids orphans, drought and little food supply. It then moves to urban areas as people flood in looking for work to earn money to send home and support their families, this causes them to live in dangerous and unhealthy conditions and they often turn to crime to survive. The cost of food rising and oil prices stops people from being able to afford food and using transport to get to work. Many kids are orphaned due to their parents dying from HIV/AIDS and this means that they are now other peoples responsibility, the family member that adopts them may not even have enough money to support themselves this is where children are just left stranded somewhere and the guardian expects them to look after themselves.
The rural population was fighting to stay up and not fail because of the bad events going on in the world but it didn't happen that way. Due to the start of the second world war, the extreme dryness from the drought, and the economy declining faster than the government could fix it the rural population was going through more than they could handle and times were getting tougher and tougher. Since the economy was dropping and they were losing money they didn’t have the money to buy groceries so they demanded on their own crops more than ever but with the drought and not a lot of rain to water all their fields of crops the rural families were very scarce with food and had to limit what they ate. It was so hard for the rural communities because besides the crops they kept for themselves the crops they sold weren’t surviving so besides losing food to eat the crops
Many people across the US live in poverty, all those people have completely different definitions of the dream. The dreams could be so simple like just getting a job one day, or feeding their family. People who live in the US have lots of obstacles for getting the american dream, they’re just different than
Many were out of a job, and others experienced pay cuts and reduced hours. The Great Depression affected the economy in the United States and throughout the world by businesses reducing their goods and services by half the amount of the 1920s or they went bankrupt. Europe could not buy American goods or pay America its debts, which Caused unemployment to rise. People during the Great Depression could not afford rent or food because there were no jobs so they lived in shacks.
People were unable to pay their mortgage bonds and were evicted out of their own homes. Many ended up homeless or lived in shanty houses which is shown in source F (known as Hoover villes). Many tried to look for jobs as shown in source D, but needed the government’s assistants to get the jobs. It shows how people viewed the their own points of view of the dream( source J), it also shows that the American Dream was over and the government now needed to intervene in order to restore the economy to where it was, at times the government tried to restore the economy but failed as the problem was too massive. In conclusion the USA slowly recovered from the Great Depression, as it also affected other countries parts of the world that were linked to the capitalist system.
As rural citizens were forced to move out of the country to the cities where factory and mining jobs were being advertised, the large powerful businesses knew that the best way to make money in the millions was through cheap manufacturing. This resulted in all the employees being paid ridiculously low wages and some no wage at all. Parents on these extremely low wages couldn’t afford to feed their usually many children, so children were forced into labour. They would mostly work hard, dirty and dangerous jobs in the mines and factories that no-one else wanted to do. They much too often had devastating effects on the children such as diseases, infections resulting in amputated limbs and death.
