How would you feel people would feel knowing that they were ingesting contaminated foods? This was the case in the late 18th hundred and early 19th hundred many social and economic problems came to be in the United States. For example, one of the many problems that arose during these years were the sanitation conditions in the companies. To be more precise, food companies were getting away with many of the inspections the government would act on. Meat packing industries were becoming more unsafe everyday.
The operations have raised troubling questions about water quality and threat to public health. “Manure from factory farms often contains majority of heavy metals, lake-choking nutrients and deadly pathogens such as E. coli. In fact, wherever factory farms have concentrated industrial piles of manure in small space, big trouble follows” (Dr. Paul Hasselback). Local citizens are concerned about the amount of untreated waste it creates. According to a U.S. survey, people living downwind from hog farms, where such factories originate experience more headaches, runny noses, sore throats, excessive coughing, diarrhea and burning eyes than residents of communities without hog factories.
The American Dream is an impossible vision that leads to disappointment this is equaled through how the workers don’t have empathy. Workers in those time would never get the American Dream because of other people, race, and disadvantaged people. When George and Lennie are at the campsite, George reminds Lennie of their version of the American Dream. “We’ll have a big vegetable patch and a rabbit hunch and chicken.” Before abruptly ending the story by him saying “ain’t got time for’ no more.” George illustrates through his speech that he understands that the American Dream is a fantasy by him saying “ain’t got no time for no’ more” this statement tells us that workers in those time could never achieve the American Dream.When Crooks and Lennie are
But while The Jungle has long been associated with food production (and its disgustingness), the book is actually a much broader critique of early twentieth-century business and labor practices in the rapidly growing cities of the United States. By the time The Jungle was published at the turn of the century, the massive flow of poorer European immigrants into the United States over the previous half-century had changed the demographics of American cities. Many of these immigrants lived in overcrowded, run-down tenement buildings with no access to clean water or proper sewage systems (source). Having come to America looking for work opportunities, the immigrants provided a cheap source of labor for American factories and businesses. As Sinclair, a self-proclaimed socialist, saw it, millionaire businessmen were building up huge fortunes by exploiting their immigrant workers.
The Nazis dehumanize their victims physically, mentally, and emotionally in the concentration camps. The Nazis provide very little or sometimes no food for Jews, which results in death because of starvation. This is used every day by the Nazis to dehumanize Jews mentally. The biggest challenge the Jews face is staying healthy with very little food. If any of the workers are not capable of performing tasks due to sickness or disease, they are most likely to get killed.
The labor union in The Jungle advocates for child labor laws, shorter work hours, and safer working conditions. Many of the machines used to cut and package the meat cause great danger to the workers, causing them to miss work. Since there is no paid sick leave, workers lose their positions and become unemployed. At first, Jurgis sees these people as weak and undeserving of a job. As he starts to experience and understand the harshness and unfairness the workers battle each day, he then agrees to attend a meeting.
He ordered a retreat. The return was treacherous. The food supply was down to practically nothing, and it was a race to one depot to the next. One depot was filled with contaminated pony meat and many of the men came down with a serious case of dysentery. A man named Marshall eventually collapsed due to the dysentery.
The father of four expressed his frustration with the lack of humanitarian assistance, resorting to his prayers “if the government doesn’t approve of people coming in to help.” The conflict for South Sudan’s independence from Sudan ended in 2011, after a referendum approved of a separate South Sudanese state. It’s bloody history leading up to the referendum provides ample evidence of how conflict can cause famine. For instance, President Omar al-Bashir of Sudan was regularly criticized for destroying food production resources in South Sudanese regions, which caused localized famines that contributed to the two million lives lost during the
Since male chickens doesn’t lay the eggs, 260 millions of them are killed upon a hatching and they mostly used for a meat production. With uninhabitable condition in industry, it can also cause bad health issue. Factory farms that raise chickens
The remains produced a strong bad smell. But the bereaved families were kept waiting for an hour and no word came from the chief. After learning that the body had already been brought to the village, the elders fumed. Bringing the boy’s - dead body to the village when he died in the mountains was an abomination.
