The day before Thanksgiving I woke up the day before Thanksgiving wondering how we were going to get all the food done. I wanted this Thanksgiving to be the best Thanksgiving our family has ever had. I got up, went upstairs and my Grandpa was already cooking and my grandma was already cleaning, so I decided to just jump right in. At the end of the day, some of the food was already done, and some of it had a lot to go, but we all knew we had tomorrow too. "
The life of a coal miner is not so different from the views of Andrew Carnegie. In the Gilded Age, a lot of youthful boys and men would work endless hours to only get from sixty cents to a dollar every day. Carnegie would focus on how the upper class would misuse their money for selfish needs. These young coal miners would work more than these rich “snobs” and still get a salary of less that 200 dollars a year. That is what Carnegie was stressing in his Gospel of Wealth.
Gregor delivers for his family in much the same way as a creature would offer for its nest or store. He expenses almost all aspects of fun, and does not desire to do anything but work. Eventually, his income becomes less of a substantial act, and more of an anticipation. His family 's existence rests solely on his shoulders, just as a queen bee relies on the worker bees. Gregor’s metamorphosis is representative of this commodification of man.
The people of United States make up what society is, when people talk about society they are talking about all the people. As citizens some people feel the need to fix society’s wrongs.

The Dr. Seuss book, The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, initially had themes of social class distinction and dominating social elites. As the novel read on, authority seemed to create social order by controlling the lower classes with foolish rules. The social elites such as King Derwin, were protected by the royal guards. Dr. Seuss poked fun at authority figures and their foolish rules in this children’s book. The children’s book displayed Marxist themes of the feudal system, capitalism, and alienation.

If Crooks does anything people don 't like, he can get easily killed.

Crooks is marginalized because he is isolated, he is threatened by the other people on the farm, and the boss takes out his anger on Crooks.
When reading the introduction from the text “Critical Race Theory Matters,” I learned some of the main principles that are discussed are that race, history, voice, interpretation, and praxis matters. First, race matters are a central structure of society nowadays and is believed that it isn’t as important because racism has been illegal for many years. “Critical race theorists (2011) believe that not only does racial inequality continue to be embedded in the legal system, but that racial inequality permeates every aspect of social life from minute, intimate relationships, to the neighborhoods we live in, and the schools we go to, all the way to the macro-economic system” (p. 3). The idea that race no longer matters clearly states that racial
Moreover, the article of “Wealth,” and the story about the life of a miner both emphasize on the poor. The fact that most are uneducated and comfortable living in their familiar setting is why the unfortunate have not progressed in the human race. Some may eventually rise up like Andrew Carnegie in his “rags to riches” story and some will stay where they are in a tedious workplace. In contrast, the miner in the story is hardworking; however, that quality does not get him anywhere in life.
The novel was published during the Industrial Revolution, a time of great economic change in which laborers fought for fair conditions at the workplace, and employers fought to defend themselves. People formed groups to work for their own benefit, thus causing the separation of classes. As a novel written during the Victorian era, Emily Bronte’s intensely class conscious novel Wuthering Heights is a story of protecting and improving one's social and economic class. Much of this struggle results from a distinct division of classes and is described through such ways as personal relationships, appearance of characters, and even the setting. The division of classes is based on cultural, economic, and social differences, and it greatly affects the general behavior and actions of each character.

Another position of employment was being a trapper/door boy. They had to be there to open and close a heavy wooden gate when a coal car was coming through. It was a very lonely job snd they had to sit on a bench all day, occasionally opening a door for the coal cars. Another big industry of employment was glassblowing. They had to work in a 130 degree room with a salary of 65 cents per day.
His family started out very affluent, but once the communists invaded South Vietnam, everything was taken from them. Furthermore, my father went to school with ripped-up clothing and no food to eat. At one point, the shortage of food was so crucial that my dad had to eat horse food along with uncooked rice grains. As a child, he tried to learn as many subjects as he can, such as soccer, martial arts, guitar, and piano. In comparison, Anne Frank was forced to go into hiding and barely had any food to eat-while my father was lucky to be able to go outdoors and school.
hroughout all of human history social standings have been determined by a hierarchy. John Steinbeck examines the social hierarchy in his novella, Of Mice and Men . The story is set on a ranch in the 1930’s and follows two migrant workers named George and Lennie, who work on a ranch in Salinas, California. There is a hierarchy among the residents on the ranch, and each individual’s ranking is determined by social status. Using the character of Curley’s wife, the only woman on the ranch, Steinbeck reveals how women are segregated from society furthering his argument that the social hierarchy is determined by factors created by society.
Comparison of The Bunkhouse and Crooks’ Room John Steinbeck’s novel Of Mice and Men reflects the lives of migrant workers struggling during the Great Depression of the 1930s. For many migrant workers, California was the place where their dreams of success could be achieved. Unfortunately, instead of gaining the grand life that they had expected, they lived in poor conditions, were excluded and treated as less than human, and life proved to be hard and meaningless. Steinbeck uses few settings to portray the overall tone of his novel; for example, even two single rooms can reveal much about the living conditions of the disadvantaged men who live and work on the ranch. While both the bunkhouse and Crooks’ room are described in detail and set in primitive and unsubstantial living conditions, the Bunkhouse is a lonely room where workers come and go, while Crooks’ room is
