This is due to social class. The higher the class the higher the standard of care. Researchers found that some of the 7500 deaths that are among people younger than the age of 65 could have been prevented could have been prevented if inequalities in wealth narrowed to their 1983 levels. If a baby girl is born in leeds she is more than twice as likely to die in the first year of life compared to an infant girl growing up in a dorset town. Alot of studies into health inequalities rely on morality, death, and morbidity, illness, data.
Latinos and Black works tend to have to work more than one job to make ends meet. When you have both parents working, possibly more than one job the support for their children’s education will also suffer. The opportunity for minorities to graduate from high school is less than a white student. The ability for minorities to go to college following high school is less than for white students. It is shown that the higher level of education the higher level of income.
Employee knowledge, experience, education, and performance would be reasons for differences in pay within a pay structure level. Someone who has more knowledge and experience should make more than someone who is just starting in a given job or career. In determining raises and other compensation, merit pay systems seem to be fairer than seniority pay systems. The text states that seniority pay and longevity pay systems reward employees with periodic additions to base pay according to employees’ length of service in performing their jobs. In my experience at working for an organization that uses seniority pay, there is not a lot of motivation to work harder than anyone else.
It could be argued that this is not an effective way of researching as people flow in and out of social classes throughout their life. Http; www.statistics.com.uk Social Class is linked to health because of four different reasons highlighted in the Black Report, The artifact approach is where the data between the higher and lower classes is not accurate enough, it’s a result of the way the data is source and collected. The social selection explanation is when people who are fitter and in better health have a better chance of being employed in better jobs. In comparison to people in lower social groups according to this theory will suffer more ill health and premature death because they are naturally less healthy and fit. Cultural explanations is when lifestyle choices are made regarding diet, smoking, exercise have an impact and make people less healthy than others in the higher social groups.
Once Slavery came to America, there were one out of every five Americans were Slaves. (Shaefer, 2012) There are five rules or conditions in which slavery generally followed, now mind you each slave owner had their own rules. Rule one was that slavery was for a life time, until later when things changed, once you were bought that was your way of life. There are only a couple of ways they could of come to be slaves. Originally they were transported here from Africa.
African Americans differ from other races in many ways. Research has showed that about 87 percent of African Americans are a part of some sort of religious group. It seems like blacks have always been on the bottom of the pole all over the world. African Americans are victims of the most hate crimes around the world. Out of 7,624 hate crimes that were reported in 2007, 2,659 of the hate crimes were against African Americans.
At the end of the seventeenth century there were an estimated ten thousand whites and forty thousand slaves, principally blacks. Less than a century later the white out numbered about eighteen thousand, but there were a quarter of a million slaves-an increase of over two hundred thousand.” In Jamaica’s class and castes, most of the nation’s wealth is owed by a small number of Caucasians or light skinned people with large portions controlled by Chinese and Middle Eastern descent. Blacks are usually run small to medium size business. Race plays a big role in how people are judge depending on their color or features. According to Culture of Jamaica “Black skin is still associated with being “uncivilized”, “ignorant”, “lazy”, and untrustworthy”.
According to an article in Slate On, the poor and low income people in our society are more overweight than the wealthy. This psychological behavior transcends to other cultures as well, telling me that people don’t really want equality but superiority. Regardless of the parts of the world you are from, someone always wants to feel superior to someone else. Though Americans did inherit the “wanting more” trait from the frontier opportunities, there were an influx of other nationalities flocking to America for the same opportunities (82). Likewise, they too have adopted the “hunger for more” mentality because they are financially able to adopt the psychological want.
Some believe that wage inequality was caused by educated people versus uneducated people. Many positions search for certain skills and if you happen to be in the right place at the right time then you would receive a position with a decent wage. The wage inequality for the building industry is based off of the fairness of wages paid to all involved. Even when the building industry is booming the wages generally stay the same and do not increase. This is because of the illegal immigrants that will quickly fill any openings and work for lower wages.
The reason, as Sagas point it out, is that since the island was founded, there have been race-mixing and this practice lasted for century. Since they practice race-mixing, many of the citizens turn out to be mulatto so they do not really consider themselves Black. In Dominican Republic, if you have any white ancestry, you have a higher possibility to have a great life and live in the upper-class. This is different than the USA, of course, where if you have any Black ancestry, you are consider low in class. It is not that they do not think of themselves as “white”, but that they are really “Dominicans” for “national and racial purpose” (335).
