The greasers struggle more than the Socs because people judge them before even knowing them, they have less money than the Socs, and they are targeted by them. Money was a struggle for the greasers, which increased people’s perspective of them as hoods. “We’re poorer than the Socs and middle class.” (Hinton, 1965, pg.3) This quote is persuasive because it shows the class, the greasers were identified
Veteran Benefits The issue of veteran benefits in the United States is not taken as seriously as it should be in our country, even though it is a growing problem that needs to be addressed. The lack of available funding for veterans is especially obvious when compared to that available for lower income citizens, or even illegal immigrants. Also, what does exist appears to fall short in taking care of veteran’s needs. Considering that these veterans are people who have risked their lives fighting for this country, the fact that they are not receiving immediate benefits or even what they have earned is unfair. The VA needs to change the way it deals with Veterans and their bout with homelessness, consistent and worthwhile employment, and mental
When a person over thinks, it leads to procrastination which leads to being stressed out . Overthinking is not healthy for our minds and it disrupts our way of life, while ambition itself is a great thing to have. Overthinking is almost never a superior trait to have. If you are overanalyzing too much, then you can never come to a decision because a lot of times, you are just supposed to quickly think. In our modern society, many occupations require quick thinkers such as police officers, doctors, firefighters, and world leaders as the lives of others are in their hands.
With both of these problems continually getting worse, and very little being done in response, our own society, like that in Unwind, will eventually be desperate for anything to be done to alleviate the growing dilemmas. Nonetheless, this alarming outcome may be avoided; both issues are predominantly fueled by selfishness, and therefore, if Americans put aside self-centered attitudes and helped others, whether by registering as donors, helping at-risk teens, or in some other way, our society would be a much better
Changing the way economy is setup can drastically affects the lives of its citizens. The changing in economy has hurt many of it’s working class people. Some people can 't find any jobs and they are struggling. The lack of job opportunities in the country is hurting those who are americans and immigrants that are homeless. The creation of political machines are taking over the jobs that the people need.
And inequality is discriminating a person in all spheres of life which gives a rise to sense of deprivation. Again the responsibility shifts to the government, if a government is economically instable then it is hard for it to make and implement policies which will benefit the people. By far the biggest factor responsible for poverty after government’s policy is the problem of unemployment. Unemployment further worsens the living style of the people and they become economically deprived due to which they are unable to cope with the advancing living standards. Access to quality education also causes poverty because without education any person in the world cannot gain access to a good job and that a person has to work on low
Minimum Wage Low-skilled workers are steadily pressing to raise the minimum wage, but this would be a disastrous idea. There are many people giving input on why the pay should be raised and saying they cannot live on such a low wage, but the minimum wage is not for someone 's career, it is for people with low skills to get eased into the workforce like teenagers. They do not realize how detrimental a hike in the minimum wage would be on them in the long haul. The people need to be informed on what they are asking for before they get an even worse outcome than before. The people who make minimum wage very clearly express their theory that higher pay will benefit them and show many valid points on why it should be increased.
Typically, one does not think about unemployment being a social problem, unless you are someone that is unemployed or has experienced unemployment. Unfortunately, unemployment is becoming a serious social problem today in society. Many people who happen to be unemployed are more than capable of working they just do not have the proper experience or flexibility that a job requires. Many are also unemployed because there are not enough jobs for everyone. The unemployment rate is rising every day and the something needs to be done to stop this.
Depression Teen depression is much more than feeling temporarily sad or down in the dumps. It 's a serious and debilitation mood disorder that can change the way people think, feel, and function in their daily life. Teens who are depressed may feel hopeless and helpless and it can seem like no one understand and depression is far more common in teens than you may think. Many people assume depression is just a change in behavior that may die out in a few weeks or even a month; however there is much more to it than that. Often, it goes without notice because people don 't want to face the fact or don 't know what is actually going on with them.

Young Americans: Generation Screwed Looking at the article it does indeed put the Millennials into a situation where this generation has nothing left to do, but fix what has already been broken. So what will be the larger repercussions of a “Screwed Generation”? Considering that the Millennials (my generation) are growing up into world full of economic hardship that is not due to the Millennials, but is what they are inherited due to the fact that the generations before them didn’t understand the process of structural factionalism. This does indeed seem unfair for the Millennials; however, we have to be the ones to make it better. On the other hand, Millennials may not have the same opportunities as the generations before them, and they may
Maybe it is because there are many risks involved with it. Some people worry that some jobs will not have enough people to work them. However, illegal immigrants should be deported for entering the country illegally, because the government can not afford their costs, this encourages more illegal immigrants to come, and this causes more poverty. First of all, the
The immigrants are viewed as criminals. The superstition that the immigrants are hurting the U.S economy results in a lack of any rights for the migrants. However, According to “Immigration Surveillance”, “some sectors of the national economy would have been devastated without their labor” (Kalhan 42). Immigrants provide a large amount of labor for the tough,
The at-risk youth population is already functioning at a disadvantage to other youth in more affluent communities and socioeconomic groups. The writers for the Journal of Sport & Social Issues, Brian Wilson and Philip White, state, “Implicit in the more progressive approaches is a recognition that contemporary at-risk youth differ from less vulnerable youth because of their deeply inscribed senses of powerlessness and dislocation from stable social support networks” (4). This causes a serious cost to the stakeholder while having long-term negative effects of on the at-risk youth. Preventative solutions are imperative to overcome this growing
It is nearly impossible to pinpoint the ultimate causes of poverty. However, I do strongly believe that unequal schooling plays a huge role in furthering this cycle of poverty for generations to come. Having a great education especially from a prestigious school equals to boundless of financial opportunities. The real question now is that who are the majority 's that are able to obtain this great education? According to the reading on unequal schooling we did in class called, Still Separate Still Unequal By Kozol, it was known that wealthy people were able to provide their children with prestigious Pre K that almost guarantee success later in life.
