In China for example, the adults [ages 20-40 years old] are working to pay their bills, and have no time to care for their kids. And since most of them know this, they do not have kids, which is causing the population of kids to fall. And the population of the elderly is rising while it plummets. But if the government makes the lives of the working class easier, by reducing taxes [making it easier to pay bills], then they will have time to start a family. And if the government builds nursing homes that take care of the elderly when their family cannot, they will not have to worry about work
Johnathan Richardson DBQ Immigration 3B In the period from 1880 to 1925 the U.S. had millions of immigrants pour into America from all over the world for a variety of reasons. The U.S. government had two outlooks on the situation during this time period. The American people did not agree on the immigrants flowiing into America at such a high rate but as time went on the American.nto the other side of the political spectrum. Many of these theories were based off of racism and the feeling of Anglo-Saxon Supremecy. In 1880 U, S. Congress passed the Chinese exclusion act this act prohibited all Chinese Immigration into the United States, The Chinese were excluded from entering the U.S. because of their willingness to work for less money.
Ronald Takaki begins his chapter with a section about Angel Island in San Francisco. This island was the main point of entrance for immigrants, something that not many American textbooks point. When I was growing up I never even knew immigrants came to any other island other than Ellis Island. The fact that the fire in San Francisco wiped out any evidence of their immigration status, must have seemed like a God sent. The Chinese were able to quickly think of a way to use the situation to benefit them, which to me took a lot of courage and determination.
Amy K. HUM 105 April 24, 2011 Treaty of Shimonoseki influence Taiwan The Taiwanese culture nowadays is mixed with Chinese and Japanese culture. What make this happened is all because of “Treaty of Shimonoseki” which is same as “Treaty of Maguan” in China on April 17, 1985. The Empire of Japan and Qing Empire of China signed this treaty. They signed this treaty for ending the First Sino-Japanese War. China was in a hard time beginning with the political corruption of Manchu government.
This paper will portray the way in which Chinese immigrants helped build Canada, particularly in the West, but in return were mistreated. With the building of the Canadian pacific railway (CPR) the Chinese were underpaid, suffered worse conditions than white workers and were verbally tagged with racist names such as coolies.2 This acceptance of lower wages by Chinese workers threatened the white workers which caused a development of animosity towards them. Andrew Onderdonk, the head man in charge of running the CPR project, was responsible for shipping thousands of immigrants to the west to build this railway from 1880 - 1885. Onderdonk is an example of one of several people who took advantage of Chinese labourers because they were, “hard workers and the least expensive.”3 The Chinese community in the west worked together to help each other out against this racial
Living a busy life can sometimes distract we from standing up for what we believe in, but it’s surely not impossible, shopping at American-made shops supports our country and supports our well-deserving employers. Sweatshops have been around for a long time and we don’t know when they will ever stop being continued. A lot of us Americans oppose sweatshops because of all the bad rumors about the conditions of sweatshops. In the article, “Sweatshops in China” the War on Want team argues, “Factory conditions are dangerous, and basic health and safety protections are rarely provided to workers. According to the United Nations, more than 200 million Chinese workers risk serious damage to their health from occupational disease.
Three sets of theories guide Wong's research: 1) Opportunity structures available to Chinese immigrants in the United States, 2) Chinese immigrants use their non-economic resources (family, kinship ties, community and cultural values), to adapt to economic environments, 3) An examination of how the global economy has influenced Chinese immigrants' social and economic lives (Wong 1986). Wong conducted his fieldwork in the San Francisco Bay area from 1986-1998. Wong has the superior advantage of already having rapport through kinship ties with the people he interviews because his family also belongs to the group of new Chinese immigrants. His ability to speak fluently in both Mandarin and Cantonese, as well as many other dialects of Chinese creates more openness and honesty when interviewing the people he is studying. He relays these first-hand descriptions and includes quotes throughout his work frequently and uses language that allows us to view the new Chinese immigrants how he perceives them- hard working people who try to change and secure their futures as well as for their children.
A. Introduction of Google in China Google Inc, one of the biggest searching engines in the world, was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in1998 and its primary mission statement is to organize the world& s information and make it universally accessible and useful. “Don’t be evil” has been the Google’s unofficial slogan (Google). However, it seems their high moral slogan has been criticized after they launched China-based google.cn search page which has censorship controlled by the Chinese government since January of 2006. Because of the censored search results in China, the Chinese users are not able to reach some political sensitive topics, such as democratic reform, Taiwanese independence, any Taiwanese website, the Falun Gong movement, Tibetan independence, the real story regarding Tiananen Square massacre happened in 1989, and many other websites.
