What is an example from Les Miserables that addresses a social issue from the time?
Basically, most of the novel addresses social issues, speaking of injustice, class conflict, and the necessity of revolution.

We learn that Jean Valjean has just been released from prison where he has been serving a nineteen-year sentence for stealing bread to give to starving children.
