The Working Poor By David K.

- ... In some cases the immigrants have no idea what they will be paid, or what their pay will be based on. “‘We never knew how they were paying us,’ he admitted. ‘They didn’t tell us.’ It wasn’t by the hour but by the row, he thought.” (Shipler 100). The skills a worker possesses are not taken into consideration when deciding the wage that they will be paid for a job. This usually ends up with many illegal workers working for much less than they deserve to be paid. Illegal immigrants also end up being over worked and mistreated....   [tags: Immigration to the United States]

Working Conditions in the Industrial Revolution

Disregarding for the moment, however, the future societal consequences of this newfound class-consciousness, and looking at the revolution solely from the perspective of an industrial worker, it is easy to questions the benefits of this revolution....   [tags: Factory System, Historic Document Comparison]

Representaion of Instructions in Working Memory

- Following instructions is part of our daily lives and a very important human attribute. It makes implementation of new arbitrary behavior rather effortless in comparison to trial and error, facilitating our learning process. Despite the fundamental role for our behavioral regulation, little is known of how instructions are represented in working memory. How do we plan an action and prepare ourselves to react in a specific way to a new and unpracticed task.
