One example of discrimination from and John Steinbeck is that migrant workers and women we treated poorly by society h Since the early 20 century Steinbeck has been exposed to workers all throughout his young life because his father once owned a ranch that he used to work on While Steinbeck was there he realized that during his early work life he often looked at what happened when the hopeful expectations of immigrants and the poor ran up against the realities of the w irking world (Bloom This means that migrant workers working all had an American dream but all their dreams got held up during the working world .
In his novella he migrant workers George and Leonie had a big dream about owning their own ranch but they never got to pursue that dreams because of their work This shows that the migrant workers during Steinbeck childhood and in are related just like the women during that time Women during the Great Depression were also treated unpleasant , Women were allowed to own anything and were forced to work inside the house ” (Ware This means that women were not allowed to work anywhere else but the house while the men worked .
As for in Curler wife was the only woman on the ranch and no one would talk to her because they knew that she would cost them their jobs . Plus she always had to listen to Curler no matter what happens Therefore this is how women and migrant workers were discriminated in real life and in during the Great Depression The Great Depression was also a time of tragic suffering .
Not only were people discriminated people also lost their jobs due to the stock market crashing . Banks lost all their money so people couldn’t get paid from their jobs , which caused those people to become poor ND desperate because they couldn’t afford to make a stable living anymore . Some people even had to sell everything to make a little money. o they had to constantly move from town to town because they needed the money for their food and the children so they wool don’t starve to death . That is why jobs were very important during the Great Depression.
