Those people who live their lives below average not only suffer the economic inequalities but also have to go through the discrimination that has been implied on them by the society itself. They are often lured into the work by being offered various incentives such as breaks and a good salary but little do they know that they are being treated unjustly and the incentives being offered to them are similar to a sugar coating on a bitter pill which they have to swallow daily during their work. The upper class people may also be deemed responsible for creating an unjust society.
They are the ones who are responsible for treating those below them in an unfair manner, taking advantage of the poor people who have no other options but to abide by the rule set by the rich people or the influential people of the company. The upper class society should put themselves in the shoes of their employees and realize the wrong they are doing with them but it is quite difficult to break momentum of something that has already been set and is being applied for several years in the society (Ehrenreich). Social and economic inequality is followed by many wrong acts in the society.
People commit crimes such as robbery as in the money: starting out to become rich and influential. Just like the authors friends stole money from his friend. But how far would one go to get rich and will someone even think about stealing from his very own friend? There is a possibility that people would go to such extents in order to gain a sense of accomplishment or to get to a status higher than they previously were at.
There is also a possibility that someone would commit such an act just to feel better about them, even though it means at the cost of their own friendship. But apart from such people, there are also people in the society who are completely opposite to the ones mentioned by Diaz, they work hard in their life in order to get what they want. These people are more sincere to their work, responsibilities and their social relationships.
They earn their status in the society by working hard and pushing their limits to unimaginable heights. Some might say that being rich and wealthy are two different things. A wealthy person inherits his money from his ancestors but a rich person may not have this luxury and might have had to work on his own with his bare hands to earn all the money in his life. They found a job that provided them money and then they worked hard in order to sum up their money to great amounts eventually making them rich.
