The California Rise

As I read an article on the rise of wages in California, it reminded me of the Grapes of Wrath and how the situation back then was a lot different than it is nowadays. Unlike the 1930s where people would go through great lengths just to find any job that would pay, people nowadays aren’t even wanting to accept jobs even though states are increasing the wages. This makes me realize how a lot of us take things for granted and that our situation now is a lot better than how it was back then where people fought for any job while nowadays people would fight for the best job and not worrying about what would happen if they lost it since they could easily just find another.
