Farming was a difficult job that did not provide much money to support a family. People needed to find ways to support their family, but jobs were limited where they were. Due to the amount people moving to Britain, buildings became packed and could not house all the people that were coming in (Worldbook.com,4). Since there were limited jobs outside of the city, lots of people were coming to factories to find jobs and the country was not able to keep up with the flow of people. Families were crowded into a limited living space.
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
However, the high transportation costs made it difficult for the food to reach the people. Additionally, some farmers decided to let their produce rot in farms in a bid to increase demand and inflate prices. This made the condition even worse in many parts of the country. Written by a WPA worker from New Jersey, letter 96 mentions that the people were working, yet they were facing starvation. This particular letter shows that the pay check is always late and when it comes, it is barely enough to cover the debt the family has incurred, let alone buy food.
Therefore, this puts many cashiers in another heavy financial position where they are forced to spend their already low profit income on individual health insurance or other insurance options. The only way to fix these problems is for the cashier or other low-pay employees to work harder and longer shifts which is not a quality, permanent solution. Especially considering their job is emotionally draining due to the negative attitudes some customers continually
They are a very poor country where poverty had hit very hard. Many of the families don’t have enough money to support themselves and keep everyone in the family safe and well-provided. Although the work that the Sherpas are given is very laboring and hard on their bodies, they get paid more than the average person in their area. Because of the higher wage they are given, they make themselves put up with the disrespect and terrible treatment they are given in order to have enough money to support themselves and their family. The higher wages put them ahead financially in their country, but comes with the cost of being treated badly.
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. Since there was one bread winner, increase in rent and landlords were not addressing the issues of the building and women felt obligated to be educated and work has caused a great upheaval in the home. (Louis Phillipe) In contrast to Louis findings Anderson found, kinship ties and networks among the lower class working classes in the nineteenth century were fundamental to insure against the everyday experience of low wages, periods of unemployment, sickness and
He wants society to open their eyes and understand that too many people died for this type of job to be right. He 's blaming society also because even now, when we 've advanced slightly, it 's still as hard to survive as it was back then (To please the boy by giving him the half hour / That a boy counts so much when saved from work). Frost is showing disapproval of the societal heirarchy, and he 's focusing on the lower-middle class specifically - he 's blaming society for making their lives so hard. The lower class work too much, and when compared to higher class capitalists, their salary is barely enough. He 's blaming society for making money and
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.
It also creates more poverty among the less fortunate, and their families, because they are unable to find a job they are unable to support their families as well. Unfortunately not everyone has the funds to invest in all these technological advances. While technology may be benefiting the richer people, these circumstances highly affect those from lower classes. Professor Jeffrey D. Sachs argues the following on his discussion of the benefit on economic growth and technology. “The world is living through one of the greatest technological revolutions in history: the digitization of communications, manufacturing, computing, synthetic biology, nanotechnology and much more.
