Obama & Romney, November 2012
- Job inequality, depends on studies (on how far you have achieved + on your first job) - Loss of jobs because of new technologies in a lot of domains (people are replaced with computers, machines...) -Income inequalities : the rich become richer than the others.
-in front of OWS, bankers didn't react : just asked the rest of the society to have more money/ to give them. -they don't care about people who haven't got houses or anything to eat because of taxes. -they didn't want any demonstration against them -These documents highlight the fact that bankers are pitiless and crual because they don't think of the consequences of their acts on people. -They are also dangerous, people always need money so they always need a bank. -Moreover banks are covered up by laws so they can get their money back even if people can't pay them back. (that's the reason why the OWS was created). -Incomprehension between the rich and the poor.
