246 Words1 Page
In the book, “The Working Poor” by David K. Shipler in chapter three of his book “ Importing the Three World” he explains how illegal immigrants/ people with low education are taking advantage of since they don't have options and are willing to accept the conditions they are placed in. “Those big names often hire the abusive sewing contractors to do their dirty work by underpaying workers to assemble garments. In 2000 a latino couple and their daughter, who were paid as little as $3 and hour….” (Shipler, 80). Taking a closer look at the author text we see that people with little to no education don't have priorities when it comes to a job. The reason for that is because they accept to work low minimum wages because they run out of options.
