he pays bob 15 shillings a week which roughly about 5p now 2nd Answer: The above figure is correct. While not dire poverty, it is quite low. It works out to 39 pounds per ye…ar. "Family wages" for Victorian England was probably closer to 50 pounds per year, and even at that it would be a very modest living with very little or anything left for luxuries or "extras". A skilled tradesman would earn more that Bob if fully employed, so it is strange that Bob, a white collar worker who would have had a marketable skill, would accept such wages. Of course if he didn't there wouldn't be much of a story, so perhaps its not best to take Dickens as a study in economics.
A goose I think
In Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol , Scrooge sends a young boy to buy a turkey on Christmas Day, which he plans to send to the Cratchit's as a surprise. Firstly, Mr. Cra…tchit is a poor man who is forced by Scrooge to work a lot as his clerk. He loves Christmas. He has a sick son named Tiny Tim and also has a wife.

They represent the majority of the population in the time, hardworking and not well off. The Cratchits represent a moral. You don't have to be rich to behappy, basically. Scr…ooge is rich, but he's lonely and isolated, soconsequently, he isn't happy. But there you have the Cratchits, whoare poor, do hard work, are burdened by the sadness of their sonbeing a cripple, and are still happy. Because they are together,they have each other. when watching them, Scrooge realises whathe's been missing out on, begins to understand why christmasmatters even to poor people, and also starts to regret thestinginess and cold-nature he shows to his clerk. Since the wholebook is effectively about the infamous misers journey ofself-discovery, he learns from the characters he witnesses, when hesees the Cratchits, it softens him to the poor.
