Topic: sexism and unfair treatment to female workers

Time is always shortest for the people that need it most, and the people that always need

it the most are the people that are constantly trying to affect change and help other people. A

great example of people trying to affect relatively large change would be the suffragettes and all

the people that fought for the equal treatment of the workers and for women. However, there is

always the question of did they do all that they could and or did they have such a long way to go

but stop for others to rise. But with no disrespect it is almost eminently explicit that we have a

long way to go from these few but big steps.Although time seems short to those who need it

most, it actually remains the same and is classified by its bringer.a minutes can seem longer than

an hour to someone while a second feels like a year to others. And still with these changes we

remain within the same closed bubble of secluded perception. And part of this close minded

perception was suffrage, suffrage is about women gaining the right to vote. Women during this

time were looked down upon and told that they should just stay at home and “support”. Women

had very little education and an even smaller value in society which meant that if you were a

woman and you had a job you were mistreated and looked down upon. The expectation for a

women was to get a small education and then marry someone with a good job and the women’s

worth was measured by the prosperity of their husband, and few had the nerve and strength to go

against this idea.

Jane Addams and her friend Ellen Gates Starr founded Hull House in September 18, 1889

on the Southside of Chicago, Illinois, most of the people around that area were immigrants. They

began by simply having read-out along and to view paintings, events that everyone could attend.

Some people still had no help where they were. nursed the sick. a cooperative boarding club for girls. Most of the deaths could have been avoided. a drama group. By its second year of existence. And with these terrible working conditions is why when the fire broke out so many women died because no one knew what to do or had any . and for adults in the evening more clubs or courses in what became virtually a night school. listened to outpourings from troubled people. Miss Addams and Miss Starr made speeches about the needs of the neighborhood. then came a coffee house. convinced young women of well-to-do families to help.1911 where immigrant female workers some 15 years of age. club meetings for older children in the afternoon. The first facility added to Hull-House was an art gallery. Such like in the triangle factory fire. and often they lived in racist and troubling neighborhood. Hull-House was host to two thousand people every week. a swimming pool. that had occurred on march 25. an employment bureau. a labor museum.Then after talking to a bunch of people that lived in the area it became evident that they had many problem that they wanted to fix in the community such as childcare and learning to fit into their new home. a circulating library. a book bindery. took care of children. a music school. The workers were packed into a large loft on the top floors with only one fire escape and an elevator that only holds ten girls. but the workers locked the workers in to keep them at their machines. This was a big step in the right direction but not everyone could be helped by this gesture. the second a public kitchen. There were kindergarten classes in the morning. an art studio. a gymnasium. And those who were not given the opportunity to try and get help had either very struggling times and or died before their time. raised money. They did not speak out about the dangerous and unfair working conditions in fear for their jobs.

did not get these systems to protect their workers on the premises that it would cost too much money. work meetings and juvenile workers were being breached at the Pegatron factories. for example apple “Filming on an iPhone 6 production line showed Apple's promises to protect workers were routinely broken. and how they would rub it up with soda to take away the smell.that would have . This sounds an awfully alike the triangle fire and we can all see how that ended but why does it seem as if this has been going on for so long and people have only found out about it now. This is what is written on paper but not everyone actually did it.way of getting out after a bunch of girls girls trampled on to the fire escape collapsing it. People were eating meat . and sell it to be eaten on free-lunch counters. not just this company but many companies. Meaning that now every company is mandated by law that they have to protect every worker and they can't just leave whenever the boss is feels like they could leave. This type of secrecy is almost like the Jungle article written by sir Upton Sinclair. today it is standard protocol to have fire extinguisher and an emergency sprinkler system in every room of a building but why didn't that not help at least keep the fire at bay. However. Well it could be a result of the fact that. It found standards on workers' hours. ID cards. also of all the miracles of chemistry which they performed. whole or chopped. Exhausted workers were filmed falling asleep on their 12-hour shifts at the Pegatron factories on the outskirts of Shanghai”. any color and any flavor and any odor they chose”. And this was mainly because the people had no previous training in what to do in a fire because they had never had a fire drill before. dormitories. This cheap embezzlement of companies failing to take care of their workers has changed only on the surface. fresh or salted. in which “ how the meat that was taken out of pickle would often be found sour. giving to any sort of meat.

and getting sick and dying with no further information than they ate and got sick for some reason. .been better to eat if it had of been exported from hiroshima after WW2. And “there was no place for the men to wash their hands before they ate their dinner. what this means is people are still struggling to this day to get a proper job. A promise tomorrow is worth a lot less than trying today. Does the world really change or does the deception just simply take another face. There were the butt-ends of smoked meat. that would be dumped into old barrels in the cellar and left there”. But a lot of the job have backwards intentions once you finally get that job. or so they think. and the scraps of corned beef. But that doesn't justify the horrid disregard for safety and sexism. and all the odds and ends of the waste of the plants. There really hasn't been a change yes we have labor unions and anyone could quit their jobs and get a new job. and so they made a practice of washing them in the water that was to be ladled into the sausage.
