United States. “It is plain that these requirements are imposed in order to govern the details of defendants’ management of their local business.” Hughes is talking about how the requirements are imposed to govern manage their business. “Their wages have no direct relation to interstate commerce.” Huges is saying people who are working wages that don’t have any relations to interstate commerce. Document G is from a radio broadcast by John L. Lewis on December 13, 1936. “The strikes which have broken out… especially in the automobile industry, are due to such “employee trouble”.” In this sentence Lewis is blaming the strikes on employee trouble.
Chapter six examines the anti-Chinese sentiment with the emerging class antagonism and turmoil between white capitalists and workers. The unwelcomed arrival of Chinese immigrants brought along their own social organizations such as the huiguan, fongs, and tongs. These types of social organizations secured areas of employment and housing for Chinese immigrants in California. This social structure that was unknown to Anglos led them to also categorize Chinese on the same level as Indians by depicting them as lustful heathens whom were out to taint innocent white women. These images were also perpetuated onto Chinese women, thus, also sexualizing them as all prostitutes.
Saunders also conveys how business marketing tactics breed cruelty and vanity in society’s elites. The lack of ethics fuels a sense of superiority in product users through brutal subjugation of those who don’t use them. In this society, violent imagery is commonplace and immoral behavior is encouraged to sell products. Society pardons characters like Kevin for their actions because they are winners who are propagating the consumerist message (they help sell the product). This vindication is further illustrated in the third vignette when an orange’s polite questioning of a Slap-of-Wack bar is answered by violent stabbing.
Instead of going to school, the majority of children opted to work. The reason they were hired continuously was due to their “[usefulness] as laborers because their size allowed them to move in small spaces in factories or mines where adults couldn’t fit…[and] could be paid less than adults” (History). These children had the ability to rise above their dismal situations, but were denied it because their parents, who also worked for these millionaires, had low wages. Taking away such a fundamental right is disgusting, and none should have the power to limit other’s success for their own. The labor shortages with men left the undesirable jobs to the women and children to
The distinction between the ruled and the ruling class was created. Humanity was lost and the ruling class became crueler and enjoyed the power. The rulers became dictators. People do not rebel against brutal dictators out offear -they are afraid of retribution if their rebellion fails, they do not know what atrocities the brutal dictator can do to them so they are afraid. Here the workers work even though their body hurts, they have pain they have to work because they are powerless “the powerful tend to believe they deserve the success they have had and that the powerless have bought their problems on themselves” (Holmes 44).
Socially, “The Jungle” was created to explore “unhealthy conditions, and general absence of meaningful safety standards in the workplace”. This book caused society to “think about the nature of the system that was making such conditions necessary”. Conditions such as the ones presented in Sinclair’s book appalled the readers. Economically, Sinclair wrote “The Jungle” after she decided to investigate immigrant workers in the workplace. The book led to the “loss of the European market caused by their smaller competitors”.
In both stories the people in power focus on the wrong things and it ends up hurting their citizens. The people in both worlds rely on technology to do very important jobs and this reliance causes the societies to misuse their technology. When people feel as if their freedoms are being restricted, they will rebel. In “Harrison Bergeron” and “The Pedestrian”, the controlling government, dependency and misuse of technology and the significant rebellious acts caused by these things create a dystopian world for its
This was seen in Parsons writings where he talks about the bribing of court officials and the environment that it created. This environment led to apathy towards workers on the part of corporations. This is outlined in Gompers’ writings when he talks about the direct relationship between the working class and their employers. He shows the relationship is one-sided, meaning that the corporations had been treating their employees negatively. Nevertheless, when considering the success that the initial implementation government regulations had with balancing the relationship between employers and employees, it would have been beneficial to all if there was more widespread regulations throughout the early nineteenth
In Goodsell’s “A Case for Bureaucracy” Goodsell makes several valid points about the argument for and against Bureaucracy. Before reading I too would have assumed bureaucracy is a waste of time and that most bureaucrats are just lazy, rude and tend to hate their job. But now I've realized that Bureaucracy does succeed. People, Americans, tend to expect bureaucrats to be able to do anything. Even when the tasks seems impossible they expect the problem to be solved immediately which ultimately sets the bureaucrats up for failure from the beginning.
It is more than a matter of ethics. Its matter of how production is organised. For example the most recent one is the company Nike, world recognized sporting clothing business however had a very bad public image as it was associated with being involved in employing young children to make their footballs. The information effected there brand and as a result they lost customers, one of the largest clothing retail less gap were found to be using children at a very young age . This damaged the company’s reputation.
Two or three radical scientists have out and out rejected the money related structure is to blame. Preparing, or more especially alluring aptitudes, is logically a fundamental for finding a professional class work. Be that as it may, according to business investigator Joseph Kennedy, our present structure makes a not as much as noteworthy show with respect to of giving the most legitimate getting ready to negligible measure of money, the common limit of a market. He communicates that various review schools, especially in the poorest neighborhoods, disregard to train the fundamental capacities of examining, forming, and number juggling. Auxiliary schools in like manner encounter the evil impacts of poor execution, even as a bit of the brightest understudies spend their lesser and senior years in a holding configuration sitting tight for colleges.
Both protests involved strategic public protesting and confrontation of the company to increase its standards. After loss of profit, the companies changed their ways and readjusted their contracts to better fit the demands of the protestors. Both of these cases show that the public are interested and concerned in the way that the products that they use are made. People do not want to give money to a company that uses sweatshop labor. 2.
This was a political act (taxation) derived to address political and social concerns of the white laborers. Argument3: An example of economic racialization can be observed in the “dual wage system.” This system was employed to racially segregate the Chinese laborers from the white laborers and paid the Chinese less than the whites. This was an effective way to keep the wages low, however, a blatant racialization as it discriminated pay solely based on race and not on other factors such as performance. Author, Jonathan H. X. Lee, also states that this created a rift between the Asian and white laborers and ultimately led the white workers to demand “immigration exclusion” (2015, 16). Argument
