"Run us out, hell. We run. They was lookin for us but they didn't catch us." (Steinbeck 7)
"Jesus, what a tramp." (Steinbeck 35)
"Old Candy, the swamper, came in and went to his bunk, and behind him struggled his own dog." (Steinbeck 48)
The people would think less of the workers and wouldn't appreciate what they do, therefore, they would discriminate. People shouldn't use their power to discriminate against those who work for them or have less money but unfortunately still do.
Women were discriminated against based off of many things, in this case, it was Curley's wife's personality. Just because of the way that Curley's wife was acting, George made a rude remark while she was walking out. People should not discriminate against those just because of who they are.
Many people assume that because Candy is older, he is weak and is unable to be helpful. Everyone in the bunk house assumes that he is unable to work and discriminates against him. Just because someone may be of old age doesn't automatically mean that they can't do as much as someone else.
