I think Mike Rose was successful in being persuasive when he wrote this. I think he was successful because he not only states the jobs that require extra learning in the essay but he uses his own connection. He put his mother in the essay and talks about her work life and he puts in his uncle’s work life and talks about his transition to a higher position and the problems he had. In conclusion, there really isn’t a big difference between blue collar job and white collar jobs. One of the big differences is education level of the work.
In his exclusive essay for Glamour, former president Barack Obama shares his views as a feminist, as well as how it has impacted his life as a son, husband, father, and president. He states how growing up with a single mother, supporting his wife, and raising two daughters has inspired and formed his views as a feminist. Throughout his life, he has seen the progress of women’s role in society enhance over time and he claims that right now is an “extraordinary time to be a woman”. Though there is still room for improvement on women 's rights, our country has made great progress in the act of women’s rights, according to Obama. During his presidency, he admits that he was working on creating policies to create further equality for women and their rights.
It seems like he does not want the reader to just think he is a prestigious professor, but that the author is human as well. In addition to Rose establishing ethos, in the latter part of the essay Rose mentions a study he did about the thought processes of blue collar workers. His study validates him as someone that should be taken more seriously. Mike Rose concluded that even though physically demanding work does not require a high school diploma, there is a lot of reading and note taking that takes place (282). Thus, Rose also establishes logos.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald the book I’m writing about. Blue and green are the colors I’m going to use to indicate Gatsby. Blue represents Gatsby because Gatsby shows strength, since he was in the military, plus hopefulness because he still thinks that daisy and him could still work because he still shows her love he has for her. Stability shows in Gatsby because of way he lives, with all money he has and his business he owns. Green is the second color I’m using to indicate Gatsby.

“We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal.” This phrase, though written in 1776, was not followed until August 18, 1920. After 144 years, women received the right to vote because of the many women who fought to put an end to the injustices against them. “Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions” and “Solitude of Self” by Elizabeth Cady Stanton were two remarkable essays written in defense of women's rights. Although these speeches were written by the same author, there are many differences in their writing style and technique. Stantons beliefs in women's rights never altered but her confidence, audience, emotional appeal, and the organization of her speeches did.
he worked hard and protected his fellow MIs at whatever cost. He resolved to go career and helped fight in numerous battles in the bug war.

The 20th century saw a major increase in women’s rights, getting a step nearer to gender equality. It is defined as the act of treating men and women equally, having the same access to right and opportunities no matter the gender. Although it is not a reality in our world, we do have advanced in comparison to the last century. At the begging of the 20th century women still were considered the weak gender. Their education consisted on learning practical skills such as sewing, cooking, and using the new domestic inventions of the era; unfortunately, this “formal training offered women little advantage in the struggle for stable work at a liveable wage” (1).
For many fields Wolf wrote textbooks, which were widely used in the universities. He helped to popularise interest in philosophy, but his lasting influence was on vocabulary rather than content. One of Wolf's chief works was Rational Thoughts on God, the World and the Soul of Man, and also All Things in General
Such as the example above about Mike Rose’s mother, Rosie, she was able to learn how crucial timing and attitude were for a quality amount of customer satisfaction. These are some of the things that blue collar jobs teach people, that colleges can’t; because these types of interactions can’t be shown in a classroom. Many times work experience can be more beneficial for some people, because why should those people go to college and just be ok at a certain job; when they could be great at a blue collar

This would keep many whites from joining the CIO, and the fight to unionize Firestone, but many still joined because of the "hardships of work (154)." George Bass, an United Rubber Workers ' organizer, would help take the charge of unionizing Firestone. In his first two weeks, he signed up eight hundred out of two thousand workers (mostly black) at Firestone (155). This success was met with threats of his life, and an attempt to blow up his car with him inside. Bass would not back down, and inspired others to do the same.
