They didn’t even know if school would still be around now; they thought that teaching would fail, all together giving up on education. Students didn’t have computers or pens; they had chalkboards and ink pens to work with. In the 1900s every student would have to walk miles to reach the school, if your family was privileged or worked on a farm and had a horse, you could then ride the horse to school, but only the males; females were not allowed to ride. There was one stove in the very front of the classroom for when it was cold. Could you imagine having one stove to heat and warm up an entire room?
The rain causes loss of work for three months, living quarters were ruined, and the migrant worker’s sadness, suddenly turned into anger. “When the first rain started, the migrant people huddled in their tents, saying, it’ll soon be over, and asking, how long’s it likely to go on?” (554). Rain in the fields meant no work for the migrant workers. In the time period this book takes place in, the late 1930’s, working in the fields picking grapes, oranges, and cotton were in huge demand. Migrant workers lived on the plantation in either little shacks, or canvas tents, and worked more than 10 hours a day, for not much pay.
Because each day the population of peasants and workers grow and it seemed like Russia was getting smaller and smaller so that there wouldn’t be enough land to build houses so The farms usually would get houses but the houses would be over populated in at one room there would be ten they lived in very sympathetic conditions the houses we re close together and didn’t have windows which is an unhealthy sate. Source 3 also supports it shows a persons complained on bloody Sunday “they receive miserable wages and generally live in an over crowed space .a woman takes several in her own and subletting to each one and it is common to see ten or more peasants and four sleeping in one bed!! !””
Life on the ship was much like that of all other ships to North America. Steerage was cramped and wreaked of rot and filth. Passengers on The Star received half a pound of hard tack and 1 quart of water each day, and children would get half of that. The Star was an 8- year old ship who’s history included taking slaves to America. Previously called the “Golden Lady”, the Star held 402 and a half steerage passengers and 15 first class.
Seventy five percent of American families lived in poverty. The stock market crashed. People stopped spending money. There were long lines of starving people in the streets. They waited for hours for a bowl
Every day more people die in America than are born. Any increases in population since 1972 have been due to immigration.2 The sociological perils we face are not those of population explosion, but population reduction. The Population Research Institute agrees, and concluded, “Our long-term problem is not too many children, but too few children.”3 The legalization of abortion resulted in a drastic reduction of the number of children in this country. By 1980 there were 6.5 million fewer school-age children in America than just a decade earlier. This required the closing of nine-thousand elementary schools.4 Legalized abortion has resulted in over 46 million fewer taxpayers in America to support the elderly.
The fact that around 40 percent of the miners are children is awful. The miners who were adults would not do anything because all this work was so they could help their families survive. 19 percent said they had seen a child die on an artisanal mining site. 87 percent experienced body pain, and many had been injured. 67 percent reported frequent or persistent coughing.
Although many of them have become settled, many still live as hunter-gatherers organised in small groups, or bands, of about ten nuclear families. Each group has exclusive rights to an area of about 775 sq km and usually moves homes about once a month as the food supply in an area is exhausted. The San live in an unforgiving environment. All of San culture seems to be related directly to their harsh environment. So closely linked that it is reported in several places that San women become sterile during periods of long drought when the land cannot support any more children.
Poverty effects our health in many ways including mental health and diseases, access to vaccinations, malnutrition, and attaining adequate healthcare. According to Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, one in seven people go hungry in the world everyday. That is 925 million people. Nearly 50,000 people, including 28,000 children, die everyday due to poverty-related problems and preventable disease in impoverished third-world countries. That doesn't include the other millions of people who are infected with AIDS and other incurable diseases.
When I first thought of child labor, I automatically assumed the laborers were children stitching soccer balls, making teddy bears, and manufacturing garments. My opinion soon changed. I came across the fact that; of the two hundred and fifty million engaged in child labor, one hundred and seventy of those children are working in agriculture. The number of children working in agriculture is ten times that of factory work, and these children still receive little attention compared to those children working in manufacturing. According to the International Labor Association, child labor is “work that harms children’s well-being and hinders their education, development, and future livelihoods.” Child labor is an obvious problem when children are put into strenuous working conditions, facing with a high injury rate, and are deprived from an education.
