Lobbying works by a hierarchical system wherein the request is processed from the bottom to the top after passing through various levels. By lobbying, people influence the government’s actions with by conveying their thoughts, concerns and suggestions to the government representatives through their letters, phones or personal meetings. In the US, lobbyists work by targeting the US Senate, the US House of Representatives as well as the legislatures. The working of lobbying in the government can be illustrated with the help of the Ford Pinto disaster case which appeared in 1970s. A gas tank exploded in a vehicle’s rear because of some mechanical problem causing several fatalities. Both the people and the government wanted to move that vehicle away from the road, but they were hindered by the lobbyists paid by the Ford Motor Company which led to even more casualties. Thus, the lobbyists influenced the action of the government.
