of time they may also seek higher wages, something the managers would not want to consider. Overweight workers were also believed to not be able to handle the conditions of the factory.

They must pay for childcare during their work hours and if their child is sick they must stay home with them and lose pay for that day. Managers also face problems with women with children or ones that may become pregnant because they are required to pay them for maternity leave. During the hiring process women are examined for pregnancy, and often, single women are desired because they are less likely to become pregnant. While women are pregnant they will work slower and be less productive and while they are on maternity leave the factory production may decrease. (41) Chapter 5 1) Many of the push factors described by the women as a reason for leaving their native homes and villages and migrating revolved around not enjoying life in their homes. Maria described how her family, of 8, was very poor and lived in an isolated village with no services.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
