The Titanic had been designed to carry a total of forty two lifeboats however, when she set sail only twenty of these boats were onboard. Many people even believed that even the twenty lifeboats were making the decks look too cluttered and were far too unnecessary for an ‘unsinkable ship.’ As a result many lives were lost when they could have easily been saved. The captain of the Titanic wished to surprise the presses by arriving early therefore setting the headline story that not only was she the largest vessel in history but he
The Unthinkable Happened, The Unsinkable Sank The story of the RMS Titanic is very well known. The Titanic was the biggest ship of its time, said to be unsinkable. On April 10, 1912 the Titanic set sail under the command of Capitan E. J. Smith. Only four short days later, on April 14, 1912, the Titanic struck an iceberg around eleven-forty at night.

He does this by using a metaphor about boats rising and falling. He puts the routine production workers in a boat that is sinking quickly, the in-person servers goes in a boat that is sinking slowly, and the symbolic analysts are in a “vessel” that is “rising steadily”. He tells us the boat of the routine production workers is sinking quickly, because of the outsourcing, which is moving American factories out of America, of corporations, for cheaper workers. Technology, explains Reich, is also a major factor in the decreasing jobs for routine production workers.
However, if we choose to not let anyone in the boat we are still compromising our safety, as we must then guard ourselves against anyone who tries to overtake the vessel (Hardin 1974).
