Paul 's mother Hester can be described as bitter at best. She was a pretty woman but that was as far as her beauty went. She did not really love her three children, but felt the need to keep up a sick facade of being a good rich mother. She lived a double life and valued keeping up her social position so much so that she felt the need to have servants despite not having the finances to do so. She also irritably claimed that the reason they had no money was because the kids ' father and her husband was an unlucky man.
The Great Depression was caused by an overproduction of agricultural goods which led to an increase on imports and falling prices in the Chinese market. It also included widespread fighting among warlords. A quote that represents how hard the Great Depression was for industrial business owners is, “but it was the time of widespread fighting among warlords, who all levied heavy taxes. This, combined with the effects of the Great Depression, made it an extremely difficult time to run a textile factory” (Chang 104). Also, prior to the establishment of the Renminbi becoming the national currency in 1935, there were many different forms of payment.
She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved anyone except me" (130).

This resentment had occurred as a result of how her mother forced her to let go her dream of being an actress. She formed a detachment to her mother because of that. She has a tendency to resent herself too as she married Curley. She despises Curley and blames herself for marrying him and constraining herself to their house and the farm. Curley treats her like an object and she gets to a point where she is absolutely fed up with it but she still has no chance but to stay on the farm, her personal hell.
The Black Death effected the laborers greatly, and because there were less laborers, nobles had to pay the laborers more. In turn this meant that the nobles had less wealth. For example, in 1347 at Cuxham manor in England a labored received two shillings a week, but by 1350 a laborer was paid nearly 11 shillings. Since the nobles had less wealth they were unable to afford the live and luxuries they were accustomed to. Unable to lead the same lives their high social status was affected.
Lawrence, is a short story about a boy named Paul. This young boy lived with his unhappy mother, along with the other family members. The mother had grown to be unhappy because she had married for love instead of money and in her eyes, she was now unlucky as a result of that decision because they didn’t have much money. However, they lived a lifestyle that would appear to others that they were wealthy, but truly they were not. The young boy, Paul, had asked his mother about luck and if she was lucky herself.
Joy’s mother, Mrs. Hopewell, states that it is hard to think of her daughter as an adult, and that Joy’s prosthetic leg has kept her from experiencing “any normal good times” that people her age have experienced (O’Connor 3). Despite the fact that Joy has no experience with people outside of her home, Joy has contempt and spite around her mother and acquaintances alike. In fact, when Joy changed her name to Hulga, she considered it “her highest creative act” and found a self-serving pleasure when the name brought dissatisfaction to her mother (O’Connor 3). When Joy expresses her disgust with her hometown, she also shares that she would much rather be “lecturing to people who knew what she was talking about” (O’Connor 4). Therefore, Joy suggests that the people and ideas that have surrounded her are inferior to her intelligence, and this
Mom also loses her job because she did not want to do it, she thought teaching was hard so the kids had to deal with their Mom’s dream to be an artist, not a teacher she ditches her teaching job for a low paying job because it made her happy because of this it made it hard for the kids to live a easy life but yet they still forgave mom. After the Walls moved out of their grandma’s home in Welch they moved into a rotting house that they could barely afford because they had very little money the rotting house had no indoor plumbing and was also located in Welch. Dad believed that there was enough land at their rotting house to build a Glass Castle so Dad had the kids dig a hole. After the kids dug the hole Dad fills it with trash and the hole they dug up for the Glass Castle was used as a dumpster even after that the kids still forgave him. I believe that if I were the kids and I worked that hard to be lied
This horrible relationship between stepmother and stepdaughter is because Cinder is viewed as no different than a beggar who has found a place to stay and never leaves. My analogy is shown in Adri’s reaction to Cinder raising her voice at her because she was tired of her maltreatment, “ ...I do not appreciate being spoken such a manner by the orphan that I accepted into my home.”(133). The italics used for the term orphan emphasize disdain and disgust which make an orphan synonymous to a beggar. Furthermore, Cinder is not worthy to live in that house because she has no blood ties with the family members that live with her, this unworthiness that Cinder possesses triggers a negative reaction from Adri whenever she accomplishes something positive that is in Adri’s favor. My argument is that this hateful tension between Adri and Cinder reveal that Adri is more “android-esque” than Cinder because of her inhumane personality and poor role as a mother, As humans, we tend to value key instinctual human characteristics such as compassion, kindness and empathy, however, we tend to always recall when we helped someone and hold this over their heads as if they will never be able to succeed on their own (add comma) which does not correlate with the values we so
She is the one female character that challenges the standard of a southern, rural woman. Unlike Cora she isn’t obedient to her husband nor God. She cheated on her husband, Anse, with a minister and isn’t sexually satisfied by Anse. Addie isn’t happy with the traditional way of life of having a husband and kids, “So I took Anse. And when I knew that I had Cash, I knew that living was terrible…” (Faulkner 171).
Women working for the Texas state government suffer wage inequality because all women are held to the expectation that they will leave work to have a baby. Women can make the decision on whether they will or will not have kids, but because their colleagues do plan on having kids or are pregnant they all are held at a certain pay. When hiring women there is this doubt that they will stay the entire time and that it will be a permanent job so the employer does not feel a need to give them an equal pay compared to a man doing the same job. The reality of wage differences between men and women is that above all changes women still get paid less than men. There have been countless arguments that wage inequality has been fixed and that everyone
There were overbuilt railroads and companies had outgrown their markets, farms and businesses borrowed heavily for the expansion (P. 467). The panic also spread to Wall Street, where the prices of stocks fell rapidly. Investments were declined, and all consumer purchases, wages, and prices fell. The Panic of 1893 deepened into depression (P. 468). The depression led people to reconsider the roles of the government, the economy, and as well with society.
Curley’s wife begins to regret living on the ranch with Curley. She starts to regret living there because of the way they treat her. And also because she could be doing better in her life instead of sitting around being bored and only being able to associate with Curley. Curley’s wife states “ I tell you I aint used to livin’ like this, I coulda made somethin’ of myself.” (Steinbeck 88). They treat her wrong because in this novella they only calls her Curley’s wife they never called her by her name so no one will ever know what it was.

As interest increases and the court wants more money it becomes an unreachable goal for a single parent. I believe child support is a lost cause, necessary, but lost. The government is willing to give out money to those in need, but they should not be expecting that full amount back in return. If the government doesn’t help these families, no one will. Some fortunate parents with well paying jobs can surprise the government, but most parents fall far below that portion of the
