Wal-Mart’s main defense is all the jobs it creates for American citizens. While Wal-Mart does create many jobs it destroys more than it creates. According to the book, How corporation’s hurt us all, By crushing local businesses, this giant eliminates three decent jobs for every two low-paid Wal-Mart jobs it creates (Dan Butts 167). So basically every time a Wal-Mart comes to a small town, a lot of the employees have to join the superstore and work for less or lose their job all together. Another reason people like to defend Wal-Mart is because they have better prices than most everyone else which is easier on peoples wallets.

Nike was providing jobs to people in areas that was not easy to provide for their families but Nike made some mistakes. “The majority of challenges Nike had to overcome involved ethical issues and debates. Even though Nike was providing jobs to those who may not otherwise have one, it was paying “a mere $1.60 a day to Vietnam factory workers when the living wage is at least $3 a day” (Hill, 2009). Nike could have avoided this challenge by paying each employee worker the living wage of the country he or she lives in to purchase necessary items”. (Phoenix Business, 2014).
At 14, Capone started a fist fight with a teacher, was expelled, and never returned to school again. He ruled with a fist few crossed him for the fear of their life.

Not in a movie, not in a college class and certainly not from Jesse Jackson, but you can find it in 'Freakonomics.' Through an interesting set of circumstances Levitt crossed paths with someone who had spent a good deal of time 'embedded' with the gang and was also able to walk away with years of the gang's financial records. It was a data gold mine. You'll see that street gangs are (not surprisingly) structured much like a corporation, they have a hierarchy, they do public relations and turning a profit really is their raison d'etre. Individual members respond to salary, incentive structures (financial and otherwise), and weigh the opportunity costs just like the rest of us.
In Lithuania, its custom that guests at a wedding-feast leave money to cover the cost, but since they were in America, many of the guest leave the feast without leaving any money since money was being budgeted amongst each person due to the lack of jobs available. Jurgis, who has great faith in the American Dream, vowed that he will simply work harder to make more money so that they may pay off the debt and continue living in America without struggling. Jobs in Packingtown involve back-breaking labor, however, conducted in unsafe conditions with little regard for individual workers. Therefore, Jurgis quickly finds work since he is young and eager to work. The family signed an agreement to buy a house, but the house was poorly maintained so it was full of repairs which evidently would cost money that they didn’t have.
Along the way however, the way in which the characters lived changed as well. During Kracha’s time, money struggles dominated his life.

His interests were not in updating and owning a home; rather, they lied in drinking, cheating on his dying wife and leaving three children on the backburner. Mike, however, was committed to his family and did not like the idea of keeping boarders to obtain more money for he didn’t want his wife, Mary, to overexert herself.
The 18th amendment contributed to the rise of organized crime because it created a lot of underground business. From killings to people living in poverty, that’s what the prohibition caused. If people really thought that prohibiting alcohol to be sold leally were going to help the way that people lived during this time, they were wrong. A lot of people were against the law, they argued that if they banned alcohol legal businesses were going to go broke and that was not going to help the economy get better. But alcohol was not the only thing breaking families apart they said, after the war, soldiers would come home and find themselves in a whole, struggling to find jobs.
Is that fair? It can be compared to today’s economy and a parent telling their child they can’t get that new shirt because they can’t afford it. The only emotion felt for that family is sadness. Dr. King also talks about how the darts of segregation sting. That stinging could be compared to the beatings they have been administered for no
