My Animal Farm

Introduction

Shoes are selling but the employees aren’t getting paid enough. At Footlocker the manager Torrence and the co-managers, Whitney and Bobby, are complaining that they and the other employees are working to the bone but the money just isn’t right. The co-managers and the other workers are secretly holding meetings in the back of the store when the boss is out. They talk about going on strike, sticking up the boss, and attacking the head quarters. That’s just all talk until one day some new Retro Jordans came and they sold out. They then realized they were being treated as slaves.

They associates of the company, co-managers, and the workers over threw the bosses and Footlocker Corporations. Their problems didn’t stop there. The co-managers, associates, and other employees became grouped. The themes will be “Humans Will Split Into Different Classes…and One Class Will Take Advantage of the Other” and “Manipulating Language/Messages Helps Control the Ignorant”. These themes will tell us the problems of the legible Footlocker. This is a frame of Animal Farm because Animal Farm has the same concepts.

Themes

Humans Will Split Into Different Classes…and One Class Will Take Advantage of the Other

My first theme is “Humans Will Split Into Different Classes…and One Class Will Take Advantage of the Other”. This theme is accurate because the workers and associates split from Footlocker Corporations and the boss Mr. Jones. The reason is because of the underpay they were getting. Footlocker Corporations and the boss Mr. Jones were taking advantage of the workers and associates. They were working them like slaves and keeping most of the money.

Manipulating Language/Messages Helps Control the Ignorant

My second theme is “Manipulating Language/Messages Helps Control the Ignorant”. This theme starts when Tanisha, one of the co-managers, over hears Whitney the other conversation that involved Bobby the manager and the associates. Whitney feeds Tanisha head with all these lies about Bobby. Whitney then tells Tanisha to tell the other employees to spread those rumors. Being the ignorant trick that she is, she does it. Whatever Whitney said about Bobby was never true. For instance, Whitney says Bobby was against the increase of payment.
