War and other factors throw people into inescapable poverty, however this nightmare can be ended if society would educate the less fortunate. Poverty is one of the most painful experiences to live through, yet millions of people are living through it every day. Poverty may be thought as something “far away”, but in reality, the blanket of poverty is spread worldwide.
As americans it is not only right to help each other, it is necessary for the betterment of the country. It is inept for the government to watch their country struggle, while spending massive amount of money for funding on frivolous things like sororities and fraternities Many cities in America are filled with people who earn less than what the standard of living is in the country .They experience many hardships and often struggle because of the issues within their community. This is the biggest issue with wealth inequality. It hinders the ability of americans to take risks and investments that could be very beneficial to them in the future, while also limiting the success of the less fortunate by supplying them with limited resources . Wealth inequality inevitably has a major role in america's current poverty level, which in turn could possibly lead to crime.
With the fall of the economy and the start of an unfamiliar lifestyle, women definitely had a major contribution in the workforce and economy, but just how impactful was it? Just how significant were women’s roles when it comes to trying to rebuild society during such a catastrophe? Many claims and arguments can be made in regard to the role of women during The Great Depression, though I believe without the role of women, the condition of the United States would had dragged on for much longer, in a more miserable way. Without the women who took action to work and support others, there wouldn’t be very many people who could have taken over their position. Though it was not the ideal lifestyle, women did so much to contribute to both the society, and families of others and their own.
Pakistan is facing many challenges from the lack of access to basic health care services, to poverty, illiteracy, women’s low status, unhygienic water supplies and sanitation and the most important problem Pakistan is facing is unemployment. Pakistan has one of the highest unemployment rate in the world. According to UN Pakistan has approximately 5.8% unemployment rate. The unemployment rate in Pakistan is increasing and due to increasing amount of unemployment many crime takes place, Pakistan has a lot of natural resources but due to poor governance we can’t use them with full potential. You can find many educated people for example doctors, engineers and graduates roaming around for job in Pakistan but couldn’t find a job worth their education.
Moreover, this uneven distribution of wealth has contributed enormously to increased poverty and deprivation in the US. In fact, 1 in 7 Americans today experience hunger and 16 million children live in poverty. Additionally, too great economic inequality prevents the economy from growing. In view of middle-class worker’s reduction or stagnation in salaries, they have less disposable income to spend. Thus, businesses suffer and must cut costs, which inevitably leads to even more reduced revenues for
These people live in poorer conditions and come from a country that grants them less opportunities. If these citizens are proven to be more optimistic than Americans, it is clear that there is an issue with how we view the world. In America, many individuals stress more about the gap between the rich and poor; who has it all and who doesn’t. Graham continues to state that “being poor in a very wealthy and unequal country-which eschews social support for those who fall behind- results in especially high levels of stress and desperation”. As someone is struggling to keep up with society’s expectations along with many other struggles, it may be difficult to remain positive.
Reasons for trafficking include both supply and demand factors. Firstly, many researchers argue that poverty adds to the supply of humans available for trafficking. India is a developing country it is known that poverty is still widespread today. Being a poverty stricken country would mean that their living conditions remain unpleasant and undesirable, often leaving them with no power as citizens remain at the disposal of capitalist, especially in the global economy. Individuals in India who participate in criminal actvity are more often than not caught in the cycle of poverty as well, hence seeing the need to to find alternatives for survival.
legally, that our system is biased toward people who can afford to pay their way in.” (In-text Citations) The current immigration system and the number of visas that are available makes it even harder to people that don’t have that kind of money to enter the country, so “illegal entry becomes the way immigrants respond to the lure of jobs with higher wages than what they would be able to find in their current country” (In-text Citation). A person that I have spoken with and shared her opinions about unauthorized immigrants, and she said, “People come and stay in the states undocumented, they were desperate to have a better life and even though it’s against the law to work here paperless; they still do it because of desperation.” But, immigrating is not all about just seeking for better opportunity to have a better life, but also, people come to the U.S. to reunite with their family that has been away from them for a long time. For example, the U.S. opened Bracero Program which brought millions of Mexican to the states to take jobs at the farm, and after the U.S. government terminate the program, many of workers stayed and continued working in the farm illegally (In-text
And this perhaps is one of the points that WMW protests when it comes to globalization of companies and yet a point of contention. It would appear in developing countries women will accept any form of labour as this helps to lessen the employment gap between men and women, although the exploitation of women is not right. On the other hand, with increased trade that comes with globalization of markets, imported goods often compete with the prices of domestic products, forcing domestic companies to cut labor costs; reduced wages or workforce. “In the developed countries, as plants relocate to sites elsewhere in search of cheaper costs of labor and production, jobs disappear and wages erode in the declining industrial sectors” Moghadam (1999). And while I agree that this one of the ills of globalization, I here subscribe to an altar-globalization, one that makes jobs available for women, jobs that pay fairly well in accordance progressive labour laws.
Breathe Poverty is a global issue that leaves society and government searching for solutions. There are many types of poverty such as generational and situational. Poverty renders many people homeless, unhealthy, and destitute. Confrontingpoverty.org states that “Research has shown that if a social problem is thought to be affecting someone other than ourselves, we may feel empathy towards those on the receiving end of the problem, but it is unlikely that we will do something about it. On the other hand, if a problem is perceived as affecting us directly, we are much more likely to address it.” When we use Mark Rank and Tom Hirschl’s “Poverty Risk Calculator” we can see the probability of poverty intruding in our own lives.
In some cases these are true but there are quite a few cases are due to gender discrimination. Women and men should be paid the same amount for doing the same amount of work. Women today are breaking down social standards. There are more working full time jobs. Women are actually earning more degrees than men, (Perry).
In today’s world, women are paid less than men for equal work which is wrong because it teaches men they are superior to women. The gender pay gap has not been shut down in a single country, in the entire world, since 2006 (Arnett, George. ). Women are working incredibly hard to earn their place in the workforce and to be treated equal, but there is much more that needs to happen. According to the site ("Women in Business.
