The unemployment level in Haiti is also very low. In 2010 it was documented that 40 percent of the population in Haiti was unemployed. 70 percent of Haitians live in terrible working and living conditions. Homes are poorly built, small, and packed. Haitians get paid very minimum, and conditions are basic.
How far did conditions for black Americans improve in the period 1945-56? Civil right was a major issue in America during 1945-56, especially in the Deep South. This was because conditions of African Americans didn’t improve much, it was mainly the start to any change that happened, with some limited progress. The first issue is ‘Jim crow’ laws; this was a law in the Southern states of America that introduced segregation between black and white people, by passing laws which denied them access to white facilities. Many of these facilities were, education, healthcare, transport, cinemas, restaurants and churches and even housing and estates were segregated.
How far had the status of Hispanic and Native Americans improved by the late 1960s? Black people were not the only racial minority that was discriminated in America. Both Hispanic and Native Americans were victims of discrimination and poverty, but inspired by black activists radicals from both communities became organised in the 1960s to fight for an equal America. There were several factors which affected both communities such as, poverty, lack of education and little opportunities for employment. Hispanic Americans predominantly worked in the farming industry within California, but were only employed seasonally during harvests.
Black Detroit has a very interesting history. African Americans migrated to Detroit in very large numbers during the "Great Black Migrations". The largest percentage came from Alabama, while many others came from Georgia, Tennessee, and Kentucky. This increased Detroit's black population from under 6,000 in 1910 to 120,000 in 1930. The city of Detroit once boasted the largest Black middle class in America.
Bolivia lacks foreign investments many other nations receive, but for the first time in years had a fiscal surplus in 2008 (CIA). Roughly 40 percent of the working population is agriculturally based, 17 percent is industry based, and 43 percent is service based (CIA). Currently 60 percent of the population is living below the poverty line (CIA). A major concern in Bolivia is that they are the third largest producer of cocaine which greatly discourages other countries from providing foreign aid for a poverty stricken country (CIA). The largest of the Bolivian
African slave labor became vital to Saint-Domingue’s economic development; one of the primary reasons that Haiti was such a productively rich land was because of slave labor. Under French colonial rule, nearly 800,000 slaves arrived from Africa, accounting for a third of the entire Atlantic slave trade between 1783 and 1791; many died from disease and the harsh conditions of the sugar and coffee plantations. Statistics show that there was a complete turnover in the slave population every 20 years. This huge slave population was ruled by a white population that by 1789, despite the short life expectancy
Laws regulating work and production were limited. Additionally, most manufactured goods were imported, subsequently limiting the quantity and selection of available goods. In response to this industrial growth and prosperity, drastic changes in the lives of Americans took place. The population increases in cities across America were astonishing and contributed to a decline in rural population. By 1890, several cities touted populations over 1 million people and by 1900, New York City was the second largest city in the world, outranked only by London.
After doing the research, we realized that living in Jamaica would be entirely different than living in America. Aside from being a widely known vacation spot, Jamaica has many poverty stricken and slum areas. Jamaica is a 4,243 square mile island. It is in the Caribbean Sea, 90 miles south of Cuba ("Mobay"). With 2.8 million people, it is the third most populated English speaking country, after the United States and Canada.
In some poor countries, numbers of slaves are increasing day by day. And there are a lot of slavery workers who worked over twelve hours per day and low pay. By my knowledge, I know there are many children who are working under bad working conditions with low pay in developing countries such as China, Vietnam, and Thailand…The International Labor Organization (ILO) has estimated that of the 250 millions children who are from five to fourteen years old that are forced to work in developing countries, over fifty percent are in Asia (ILAB). In China, there are lot kinds of slavery such as forced labor, marriage, sexual slavery, and child labor. But child labor is a big issue right now in China.
Also, the vast majority of black Americans were disenfranchised by grandfather clauses and literacy tests which made it very hard for black Americans to vote. Finally the Ku Klux Klan terrorised black Americans using techniques such as lynching. By contrast in the Northern States, segregation was rare. What is more, Black Americans has greater access to higher-paid industrial jobs and many were organised in unions. However, on average black workers earned 50% less than their white counterparts.
