As time goes on, the rate of homelessness rises as the population rises. Homelessness then was mostly caused by a family’s history of being homeless, drug abuse, mental disorders, and tyrannical leaders forcing his people into poverty. In modern times, several organizations are now trying to end homelessness by building cheaper housing projects more affordable to the poor and homeless shelters; these projects usually cost a fair amount of money.
Industrialization upgraded machines, but downgraded people’s health due to more pollutants getting put into the air. Along with this there were very poor working conditions that decreased people’s health. Upton Sinclair showed that industries should have safer and more sanitary working conditions before employing people to work and distributing their product, in order to decrease the amount of injuries and illnesses, in The Jungle. Sinclair wrote about how most of the machines in the factories were very dangerous. Many of the machines were run by the working men/women, so when a machine broke the man/woman working at it usually had to try to fix it.
In 1907, Ellis Island was receiving an average of 5000 immigrants a day. New immigrants knew little to no English, which made them targets for exploitation when it came to getting a job. They tended to migrate to neighborhoods of their kind, which caused older residents to move out.

Just like several other ethnic groups in the 1800s, poverty drove many Greeks to emigrate to America. In their home country, agriculture paid inadequately and was long, arduous work. And those already paltry conditions turned destitute for citizens when blight struck their crops. This caused a mass migration from Greece that began in the 1890s and lasted through the 1920s (Iliou, 2007). During that time, many people from Greece sailed to Ellis Island, in hopes of a better future.
History of the Irish immigration to the United States is rich and can be divided into several important periods. Between the years of 1845 and 1855, more than 1.5 million Irish adults and children left the country for America, in search for the refuge. The reasons for such an influx were numerous: many Irish were desperately poor, and many were suffering from starvation and disease. One of the most widely spread reasons was the so-called Potato Famine. It killed more than 1 million people in five years and caused great acrimony and anger at the British for providing too little help to their Irish subjects.

Although America has millions of people working hard to have a roof above their heads, the status of the working poor and poverty level at this juncture seems to be a dilemma that should be taken into serious consideration which would put an end to the competition between the rich and the poor. The working poor has a major role in society but they face many problems along the way. “The Working Poor examines the "forgotten America" where "millions live in the shadow of prosperity, in the twilight between poverty and well-being. " These are citizens for whom the American Dream is out of reach despite their willingness to work hard” (The Working Poor).
Francis Scott Key, in 1814, called America “The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave,” and this motto was heard by people from other countries. These people decided to leave behind their old lives in order to escape their native countries for various reasons. Some of these reasons include overpopulation, unhappiness, and oppression.

This dissertation considers the connection between British naval power and Colonial America in the eighteenth century. To be specific, I concentrate on how the navy dealt with American naval stores and the naval stores policy for its procurement of goods from 1690 to 1770. This dissertation analyses the navy’s use of naval stores both from the Baltic areas and Colonial America and the navy’s views about the naval stores policy. In the eighteenth century, the American colonies were the chief sources of masts, pitch, and tar for Britain. Therefore, the navy used them for building warships and expressed the views about these commodities.
Second, as years goes by slavery and race became closely linked. Furthermore, slavery was one of the reasons about racism. Racism is a faulty treatment against others because of their disparate race. Slavery was also establish by the race of people. The first slaves in this world were the Native Americans and then the Africans.
During the period of the 19th century Africans Americans were held captive because their rights as citizens had always been out of there possession. Freedom was no option until Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863 which declared that “all persons held as slaves within any State, or designated part of a State the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free.” (Archives.org, 1999).

The ratification of the amendment came about 8 months after the civil war, but it represented the highest of the struggle against slavery.
