He completely depends on money to meet his family’s needs and thinks that “life is money,” more than he trust in his mama and family. Walter is a fairly ineffective man in his house, who has be unable to gain his financial freedom. It becomes expected of Walter in his growth in the movie that his economic inconsistency endangers his ability to meet house hold duties. Throughout the movie, he supplies accurate illustrations to live up to the expected character of Walter Lee Younger. He shows his dependency on money instead of the family with definite evidence of anxiety to acquire his father's insurance check, that the family was waiting for from the start of the movie, in order to attain his goals.
The expenses scare a lot of able candidates away from the profession, able candidates from poorer families either take up a loan or they choose another profession. If they choose to take up a loan, they will find themselves in debt even before they have begun working as solicitors. The danger here is that the profession will be dominated by (some argue it already is) elitists, people from wealthy families that can pay everything for them. This tendency is dangerous because the profession will not reflect diversity if all the would-be solicitors are elitists (middle-class/rich, exclusive and so on). However some small measures have been taken, the LPC can be taken over two years, and then the would-be solicitors would be able to take a job and do the course at the same time.
The family signed an agreement to buy a house, but the house was poorly maintained so it was full of repairs which evidently would cost money that they didn’t have. The community the house was in wasn’t much better, being filled with crime and corruption and not very family oriented. As it seems a lot of their family finds jobs, tragedy strikes with the death of Jurgis’s
On the other hand there that middle class of poor that knows nothing about the system or doesn’t have the resources to get a good lawyer they are screwed completely ruin your life and affecting some people around you. Several contemporary concerns impacting criminal justice professionals are, stress, finances, the economy, their family and friends, health and job security.

Along the way however, the way in which the characters lived changed as well. During Kracha’s time, money struggles dominated his life. During his efforts to obtain stability, he worked on the railroad, then moved to the steel mills, where years later, proceeded to open and own a butcher shop, then finally ended up back at the mills. His interests were not in updating and owning a home; rather, they lied in drinking, cheating on his dying wife and leaving three children on the backburner. Mike, however, was committed to his family and did not like the idea of keeping boarders to obtain more money for he didn’t want his wife, Mary, to overexert herself.
The Gold rush began in 1849 when around 50,000 miners (known as the ’49ers’) travelled to California to mine for gold on the Native Americans land. The mining took place on the Natives sacred land which understandably angered the tribes as it caused many problems for them. With all the noise and disturbance from the mining, the buffalo herd that the Natives relied on for food and to make their tipis from, was driven of their grazing land. As dangerous, dodgy gold towns began to populate the Natives area, forcing them of their land the Natives tried to defend their homes and tribes. War broke out between the whites and the Natives, the whites began scalping missions on the tribes and soon disease and conflict wiped out a majority of the Native population.
It is through this bit-by- bit setting of the play where emotions, conflict and tension develop. In addition, the mending of the stocking serves as a reminder of the state of poverty that the Loman family is in. This again is ironic that, Willy a salesman; who sells stocking is unable to purchase stockings for his wife. In the same light, the mending of the stockings shows the disparity within the family; Willy and Biff’s constant bickering and argument, the inequality between Linda and Willy and apart from financial problems the social rut that the family is in. Overall the holes in the stockings represent the need for love, support and harmony within the family.
Without the money, Walter can no longer succeed in his desires as well as anybody else in his family’s desires. Mama shows anger and outrauge towards Walter once she has found out what Walter has just done with all of the savings. As she finds the right words to yell to towards him, she speaks, “I’ve watched him, killing himself...and you- you give it all away in a day,” (129). According to L. Cooper, the quote shows how outside forces control people’s destinies. In Walter’s case, his outside force stopping him from his store is the money that he needs to build it.
More importantly, it hurts the lives of the many people that were working for Hostess. They can't make a living without a job, without a job they wouldn't have the money to pay for their bills or even their house and might even add to the growing population of homeless people. It would also hurt the states in which the bakeries or plants were shut down. Also, the liquidation affects the people who love Hostess, people who grew up with Hostess, and the new-coming babies that won't be able to enjoy any of their products anymore. The Union is supposed to help the economy, not take away businesses that will help it.
Gatsby on the other hand is living in the past and cannot be happy with moving forward. Gatsby acquires all of his money for the sole purpose of making Daisy accept him and want him, but by itself it does not bring him happiness. Although both of these dreams share the need for money to be fulfilled, Gatsby’s dream focuses on love and the past for him to be
