Looking in a low wage worker’s perspective, they see a world where people assume they are substance abuser, because their lives seem miserable, however in the wrong way. Ehrenreich claims that low-wage workers spend their money wisely especially on rent and food. She shows a low-wagers real struggle as they try to find a home: “the big pr... ... middle of paper ... ...ful for creating a negative label on the working poor. Since no one will accept low wage workers in society, they only think of them as the ‘outcasts. Ehrenreich lastly states, “guilt doesn’t go anywhere far enough; the appropriate emotion is shame- shame at our dependency, in this case, on the underpaid labor of others” (221).
They left them in the dark and now because of that bad decision they now have to live with those choices whether they are good or bad.

In Rome poor farmers were having their land taken away by the rich to have their villas on that land now.

Everyone must know the destruction of society through ObamaCare, Medicare, and the welfare system. All these programs give handouts to people who really don't need them at all. The government is wasting money and ruining the economy by giving these hand outs to people. ObamaCare and Medicare are also hurting small businesses by giving businesses high taxes that small businesses can't handle. People will continue to receive hand outs because they don't want to work.
Douglass was not aware of what slaves were and why they were treated in a bad condition before he learns how to read. He was deeply saddened upon discovering the fact that slaves were not given the rights every human being should have. In an effort to clarify Douglass’s feelings of anguish, he states: “In moments of agony, I envied my fellow slaves for their stupidity” (Douglass 146). The fact that other slaves are content with their lives is what brings awareness to him because he knows that he is stripped of basic human rights. He envies his fellow slaves due to the reason that they are pleased with the life he cannot live to like anymore.
(p. 6) Riis also thought that the "other half" justly punished the community because the community gave them no other choice.

When property owners over price a small "room" for these people, is it the poor man's fault? The law and community had turned away from the lower class and let things get out of hand. "In this matter of profit the law ought to have its strongest ally in the landlord himself, though the reverse is the case.
Job losses, illnesses, accidents, and other tragic events can effect anyone’s financial situation. The culture of poverty, which is a false assumption people have of those who are poor and poverty stricken. This belief states that, the poor are where they are because they have low standards and poor morals. They like to be poor because they don’t pull themselves out of poverty. They teach these beliefs of laziness and bad morals to each new generation and perpetuate poverty.
The book two dollars a day by Kathryn Edin is a book that highlights a spiraling poverty in America. One thing I feel contributed to the poverty talked about in the book is some types of American political culture. People in America who are in need of welfare often won’t take it until they have become so impoverished there is no other option due to the stigmas that come with welfare. American political culture also creates a persona for poor people it often paints them as lazy minorities that don’t want to work though they would be capable if they tried too. The pull yourself up by the boot straps mantra only creates more detestation for the poor and impoverished that already don’t seem to fit into the American dream.
This may sound simple yet it is not. World hunger is a terrible effect of world poverty. People at this state always become worst since they experience different illnesses and malnutrition.

That is why health is an important aspect towards advancement (Sachs, J., 2005).
This concept is in essence designed to maintain the welfare of citizens from birth to the grave. The notion of overseeing welfare wasn’t always the case in the UK. Before this the ‘Poor Law’ was operated. (1598-1948) This consisted on a basis that the poor amongst society were essentially a problem of their own making and in turn needed to be punished because of this. ‘Those without jobs were lazy, feckless or in some other way delinquent’ (Coats: 34: 2012) Welfare was deemed to be a privilege, a goodwill gesture from the rich to the poor.
While knowing that supermarkets and food chains are the root causes of the injustice, we can only feel anger towards them because we want the farmworkers to have justice. I was so angry at the franchises that I stopped taking my business there. With time, I concentrated my anger so that it was not with specific people, but with the root cause. The third stage deals with realizing that only the poor can help themselves and that we cannot help them. This can be shown by the CIW; the CIW has helped expose their cause by protests, presentations, and even producing a movie on Netflix.
