Another, Latin America problem is education. Most of the people that live in Latin America don’t have the proper education they need to get a better paying jobs and help out thousands of people get out of poverty. Some of the governments in Latin America are trying to help out the civilians get out of poverty by making students get an education. But getting education also has some boundaries, for instant females don’t get the same education as males do making a gender inequality around Latin America when it comes getting
Enrique’s family was from the poor side of Tegucigalpa ripe with corruption and drug use most families barely able to keep food on the table. The thought of going to a place as welcoming as the poem states, a place that has open arms to the poor and homeless. The line yearning to breathe free could reference the crushing poverty under which the mothers and fathers would seek out ways to keep their children away from the pain. Parents seeking out ways to improve their children’s life might see America as the only option available at that moment to keep food on the table and the kids in school. In addition the ideal “American Dream” and the media over inflating how perfect America is might just be enough to tear a loving mother from her kids they might be able to live a better life, even if it is with out her.
Economic pressure is one of the top pressures that college students face. Being that America is still in an economical downward spiral, college has gone from being the place where one can reach their their dreams to a place that you will be paying for most of your adult life. There are many people that believe it is a waste of time to go to college because majority of the time you are not going to use your degree and you will still have to pay thousands of dollars over the course of your adult life. Many people believe that it is better to go to a trade school because it is somewhat guarantee that you will have a job working in your field of choice.
Though looking around the world there are more people whose living in poverty and they trying to put an end to it and find food. For example, in the United States a lot of people living in poverty mostly immigrants because a lot of them do not have the right documents to work and some chose not to work at all. In the United States people in poverty are not given much importance nor any help because they are poor and cannot afford much. A source Rethinking Poverty: Which Way Now, states that 1.4 billion people living in poverty. more clearly, poverty is the cause of hunger and death.
After reading “Class Differences in Child-Rearing Are on the Rise” by Claire Cain Miller, I realized that there are many aspects that go into socio-economic status. One thing that initially stood out to me within the article is that, “Poorer parents have less time and fewer resources to invest in their children, which can leave children less prepared for school and work, which leads to lower earnings” (Miller). This stood out to me because children have no decision on what family they are born into, and the fact that if they are born into a less privileged family then they are more likely to grow up to be poorer due to the lack of preparation for school and work that they obtained during childhood. Even though there are multiple parenting approaches, most parents want the best for their children, even if they can not give their children the most financial stability. After reading “The Dangerous Consequences of Growing Inequality” by Chuck Collins and Felice Yeskel, I found that the article to be very interesting and informative.
In recent years American-born poor and immigrants are at a clash on getting a job. Immigrants are willing to take any job they can land as long as it pays, while American poor is less willing to chase for a job. Michael Fix from the New York Times states that immigrants are willing to move into places where American poor left for work. He also states that immigrants are more adaptable to change and moving around for the jobs. He also inquired that the recession is global and immigrants returning back to their home country.
Poverty is a main cause because people living in poverty cannot afford nutritious food for themselves and their families. This makes them weak, unstable, and less able to earn the money that would help them escape poverty and hunger to feed their families. This is not just a day to day problem; when children are chronically malnourished, or “hungered”, it can affect their future income in their daily lives, and then condemning them to a life of poverty and hunger for a long time. Lack of agriculture plays a major role because many developing countries lack agriculture investment causing downfall in their economies, such as enough roads, warehouses and irrigation. The results are high transport costs, lack of storage facilities and unreliable water supplies.
The second cause for poverty is the lack of sufficient food and food costs. Hunger has become a common feeling for families living in poverty. Food is a necessity and something that we can not avoid paying for. Even as much as “66 percent of households… have to choose between paying for medical care and food every year,” says feedingamerica.org. The fact that citizens have to choose between their own health and having enough food to eat really exposes that much of America is living in poverty.
People are accustomed to strive to do the best they can in regards to accomplishing their goals. For some people it is to be rich, famous, or powerful. Others decided that they wanted a safe place to raise their children and obtain wealth, not with ease but with hard work and determination. Based on the reading, I agree with Borosage on the fact that the American dream has died out over the years due to the enormous wage gap and the disappearing of the middle class. The American dream is no longer alive due to the fact that the top one percent owns too much, health care is too conflicting, and the work force is too competitive.
America is a country with a history built on immigration. Many of people immigrated to the United States dreamed of better opportunities, better education, and have a better life. Unfortunately, many of them had already realized that those dreams are not easy to be accomplished, and might be they have to pay an expensive price such as hard working, or doing multi jobs. The true thing is that migrated people in the United State have a very harsh life. Many educated people, qualified to earn in their homeland, but soon realized that their education had little or no significant in the US job market.
