When I was 16 I had finaly got my first job making $7.25 a hour. I thought I was rich being only 16 and bringing home a $350 dollar paycheck every two weeks. As I was turning 18 i started to realize something that I didn’t realize when I was 16. I had bought my first car and my own phone, I had bills to pay now. $550 a month doesn’t sound like a lot but making $7.25 an hour 8 hours a day, that’s ten days of work that’s 80 hours a month just to pay for my car.
Physics has helped the military guns in many of ways, it has also helped people who hunt for a living. Yes these advances are wonderful and they are very helpful, but they also come at a very high cost. When guns first came out in the 1800’s they costed about $50.00 and now days they can cost anywhere from $250.00 to $1,500.00 or more, For example when I was 5 years old my mom and dad bought me my first gun for my birthday. It was a .22 magnum and it costed $169.99. I eventually grew out of shooting this gun and I bought another one, it was a .270 and it costed $295.00.
A college’s main sours of revenue in tuition money which as previously stated, is four hundred percent more expensive than twenty years ago. People who are seeking the traditional path into the work force are forced to pay these crazy high prices and are enticed by a pretty residential life and the thought of new found independents. The reality of student debt have not set in yet. Student debt is at an all-time high with an average of 29,000 dollars per student. Because of the tradition of going to school and the amazing residential lives, it can be easy to recognize the severity of the situation you are putting yourself in.
Catcher In The Rye:Chapter 1: Significant Passage: “He just got a Jaguar. One of those little English jobs that can do around two hundred miles an hour. It cost him damn near four thousand bucks.” Speaker: Holden Caulfield Audience: the reader Significance to the story: The sentence I picked helps to show that currently at his time a expensive car like a Jaguar costs four thousand dollars which shows it takes place sometime in the 1900s. He calls the car as a job which shows that at the time they had weird slang for different things. He also shows a little distaste for his brother because he has luxuries.

“Of the starting 65 percent who face debt, the average they owe is around $20,000. That’s just below the starting price of a 2009 Ford Escape,” stated by Robin Wilson in his essay, A Lifetime of Student Debt? Not Likely, means that many college students are taking loans that are so large to the point it can take the place of a brand new truck (257).

Making college free would benefit the nation greatly, making the unemployment rate and dropout stats go down with tuition being now affordable. College being free will make fewer people who foresee other help along with people being able to do what they want without being thousands of dollars in debt.

Panic hit my parents. It 's senior year, I just got accepted into UW Tacoma and they see the tuition fees. They were already in shock when they had seen my Application Fee was 70 dollars.

Well these are some of the problems I have working for minimum wage in high school. I do plan to go to college after I graduate.
