Furthermore these immigrants are taking whatever jobs they can find, and because of this they are doing some of the most undesired jobs in the nation. Some people would argue that the illegal immigrants are taking money from our economy, but this notion is also quickly put to rest, as these workers are putting there money right back into the economy as they buy cell phones, or parts for their cars, or any number of other goods. Because they purchase goods they help other businesses prosper and more jobs are created. Hence the non-legal immigrants are not a hindrance to our society but rather they help it. These people are close to the bottom of our society and yet they provide a crucial role.
It is very easy for us to look at someone who is impoverished and assume that they are to be blamed for their own poverty. That is not always the case. Millions of Americans are living in poverty. Some are ill, some are unemployed, and some people have devoted too much of their time attempting to better society, as opposed to bettering their own life. We live in a very ethnocentric society, meaning that we look down upon those of a different culture and tend to assume the worst of them, (Leeder, In Class 1/16/13).
While 58% of families below the UK poverty line contained at least one working parent, benefits available still do not bring them above the 60% median household income. [4,7] Along with income inequality other inequalities such as: ethnicity, housing and the neighborhood in which the child lives; all contribute to poverty. People from ethnic minority groups in Britain are significantly more likely to be living in poverty. Around a third of all children are living in poverty; but disadvantage is deeper among children in ethnic minority groups as a whole. Homelessness; poor accommodation such as overcrowding, poor state of repair blights childhood.
They also come in pursue of giving a better educational opportunities to their young children. Also immigrants are more likely to create jobs and pay taxes when they live in the United States which helps the economy grow stronger. Although there are many negative conceptions about immigrants these individuals should have the opportunity to migrate to the United States for a better life. Many of the immigrants that migrate were left with no other option but to enter illegally through the border because in there countries they suffered from poverty, crime, the lack of education and opportunities. In the article “Rethinking El Salvador’s transnational families” by Leisy J. Abrego writes about a young boy named Daniel and his struggles living in El Salvador while his father is in the United States looking for work.
Immigrants allow Americans to work jobs that pay well without having to do unwanted work. Someone has to clean the toilets; immigrants decrease the chances of Americans doing these jobs because they are so willing to do them. In addition, America is really working against itself. The blame for America’s short comings should not be placed on foreigners. The U.S. needs to accept the fact that immigration is very beneficial.
Without immigration it would be harder to get to know other cultures because the only other way would be through traveling; however, not everyone can afford to travel around the world. United States has always being a country known for its high rates of immigration and its diversity; these facts did not stop it from becoming one of the world’s top countries. If it was not for immigration, the US would not be same country. Many of the technological advances that the country has to offer come from companies that were created overseas and brought to America as an expansion method. For instance, the company Sony was firstly created in Japan and then expanded to various other countries including the US.
Since the low class poor people are not usually educated, they often easily “pushed” into the crimes by the high class people. Usually the upper class people are invisible and at the end the poor is the ones who get blamed. Certainly the rich benefit more than the poor. That has always and will always be the case in every society the world has known. Very often the rich push the poor by removing workers rights, by limiting corporate liability, by instigating war.
Apart from the main direct cause like unemployment, poverty in our society today is the low paid, lone parents and children. However poverty can have a great impact on a child’s life. The people as well as the children who are poor could suffer greatly from problems such as social exclusion, employment, education, mental and physical health and social interaction. This is one fact why child poverty is a direct result of adult poverty, however unlike an adult, experiencing poverty as a child can have lifelong consequences in the future lifespan if they are not helped early age. Poverty is measured in two ways, namely absolute and relative poverty.
Society in the Industrial Revolution - Child Labour Orphan children were most vulnerable to exploitation, as they couldn't fend for themselves. Due to their helplessness, they were forced to work in factories. Families sent their children to work in factories due to being trapped by poverty. The children were sent to the factories which put them under poor conditions and they received little pay to support their working families. Factories were very poor health and safety wise, therefore the child 'slaves' didn't have suitable working conditions, severely affecting their health in short term and long term.
Illegal aliens shouldn’t be rewarded with legal status and other benefits. Most Americans don’t want immigrants in their country because they take the jobs away form them. American citizens have different Pros and Cons about immigration topic like Amnesty, Deportation, Mexican Border Fence, Driver Licenses for illegal aliens. Most all of the states don’t allow immigrants to get a drivers license with the right paper work. This does not keep illegal aliens from driving, even though they work low salaries, can’t afford an insurance and they often have trouble the road signs in english.
