1.   Explain Martineau’s comments and the context of them including the political culture of the time and the immigration debates that were taking place in the country.
2.   Assess why she would consider them a pure benefit from a sociological standpoint paying particular attention to the functionalist perspective which prioritizes the need to get all jobs done, even undesirable ones.
