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 year…. "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. Cratchi…t 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, hard working and not well off. The Cratchits represent a moral. You don't have to be rich to be happy,… basically. Scrooge is rich, but he's lonely and isolated, so consequently, he isn't happy. But there you have the Cratchits, who are poor, do hard work, are burdened by the sadness of their son being a cripple, and are still happy. Because they are together, they have each other. when watching them, Scrooge realises what he's been missing out on, begins to understand why christmas matters even to poor people, and also starts to regret the stinginess and cold-nature he shows to his clerk. Since the whole book is effectively about the infamous misers journey of self-discovery, he learns from the characters he witnesses, when he sees the Cratchits, it softens him to the poor.
Ashamed of the way he has treated the loyal Bob
