The meaning of Injustice

 In today's society injustice to me has alot of meanings but this is the best definition to me; “It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope .” From Robert Francis Kennedy. In the book "The Jungle", their was alot of injustice going on such as, when Ona was forced to have sex with her boss. This is injustice because, Ona's boss had no right making her have sexual affair with him espicially with her being a married women. Another act of injustice was the workers in The Packingtown was working without pay. In Conclusion, this act in so many words can be called labor because its forcing a citzen to work for free.
