Showing hard times

Jacob wrote a book about people who lived in tentaments and of the horrors, called "How the other half lives". Ethnic ghettos would bring all kinds of races together likely called a melting pot. Also the lower class would work in sweatshops with poor ventilation, poor pay, and poorly lit. New arrivals would come in and expericence culuture shock, where everything is so different in that area its nothing like they were use to.
