His desire to separate himself from them—to prove that he is different—compels him to quit his job. He is given the opportunity when Queenie and her friends attempt to pay for their goods and the girls are confronted by the manager who insists that the their attire isn’t “decent.” Sammy then comes to their defense when he decides that the way that they are being treated is poorly enough for him to quit. “You didn’t have to embarrass them” (Updike 238).

To sum it all up, Esperanza went from riches to rags, bratty to well behaved, and from not working at all to working very hard thanks to her experiences throughout the book. Looks like being poor was more beneficial than being rich.
