People shouldn't have to spend more money out of their pockets for childcare. I feel like it takes away from the home and doesn’t serves as a good purpose. The government should pay the employers and employees for the services they are giving out to people. “Enrolling in an educational daycare will also prepare young minds for school so that they have a better idea of what is expected of them and how they should be behaving around others. Without government funding many families simply cannot afford to have their children properly watched while they are at work.”Two hundred plus dollars a week out of someone's pockets are very steep and costly.
People who are living in poverty must live “paycheck to paycheck”. This means that the provider makes just enough money in their paychecks to pay their bills and then keep moving on to the next month. This lifestyle results in these families not always having enough money for things such as food, gas, clothing, etc. These people have to go through many hardships because of this type of lifestyle. For example, many people who live paycheck to paycheck suffer from depression and high levels of stress.
Although the number of nursery schools in Japan is increasing, the government does not meet the demand perfectly and the nursery schools do not have enough employees. In February 2016, a passage named “go to hell Japan” spread rapidly on twitter. In that article, a 30-year old would have been back to her job and reduced the economic stress of this family. However, her one-year-old son needed her care as her application was rejected by the the understaffed nursery school. It was unavoidable that she would lose her job or nobody was going to serve her son because the young couple needed money to build a better future for their son.
How can one be happy if they are living out on the streets with no money and no way to attain a job? If they have no way to buy nice clothes for a job interview, how is that person able to achieve their American Dream? If a parent is poor and they have a child, then that child will most likely be poor their whole lives as well. In the article “The American Dream Is Dead: Here’s Where It Went” by Adele Peters says, “inequality for parents translates directly to inequality for their kids.” So working strenuous and saving up money is not going to do much for the children. Another thing people say, “it is the person’s fault for being poor” and “don’t help them out.” Well, in a podcast I listened to, it talked about Benjamin Franklin’s sister and how she was poor her whole life.
Women encounter greater problems than men with regards to adjusting work and private life. Family, care and household duties are not equally shared. More women than men choose to take parental leave as women often borne the task of taking care their family members. In addition, the lack of facilities for childcare and elderly care have caused women to leave the workforce. According to a survey of working parents done by Pew Research Center (2015), it is found that 39 percent of mothers took time off to take care of their children or family and 27 percent responded that they have to quit their career.
For instance, from the article “The effects of minimum wage” by David Neumark states that employers will try to keep away from low-skilled workers if the wage were to increase because it would cause them to be wasting money to train them; especially for students and high school graduates who are in absence of any work experience. With minimum wage increasing for the past couple of years it makes it difficult on employers who run small businesses to hire more new workers because they too are also citizens that have to pay their taxes and extra just to keep their business up and running. Such as the author Gina Kim who wrote the article “Minimum wage: helpful or harmful for small businesses” states that 85% of small businesses pay workers a bit more than the minimum to keep their workers interested in the job and they have to make profits out of their business to keep it on track. These businesses cannot innovate if the wage increases because then the labor market will pick up the prices on materials as well creating more of a problem for small business owners to keeping their company open for as long as possible and their solution would be to not hire a lot of employees. This pretty much explains the reasoning about how it will be troublesome for new fresh workers trying to just gain experience and get hard earned
"Bus drivers, cafeteria employees and custodians typically see the most negative effects from switching to a four-day week. If they 're not able to make up their hours, they risk seeing their paychecks shrink by as much as 20%" (Lake). This can make for hiring staff to perform these duties far more difficult with knowing they only get paid on a four-day salary. One of the largest problems with the shorter week is that it will affect families with younger kids. "For working parents, the four-day school week often presents more problems than solutions as they scramble to find suitable childcare for the extra day off.
Jaslene:12 weeks off work? That sounds great! Katie.yeah but look at the key word- UNPAID, in fact, 43% of women with children quit their job early to be with their kids and avoid dealing with unpaid maternity leave all together. Jaslene:Wow, is unpaid leave such a really bad thing? Maddie:Not necessarily, when getting unpaid leave, businesses are required to give job security.
In some of these families both parents work multiple jobs, and that does not provide the full amount of money to keep the family afloat. Rent is the most expensive part of a person’s fees like this example where “Some parents forked out what they made at one job entirely on rent.” (p.89) Records also show that “Often, there was little left for food after the rent was aid. Working families went hungry at the end of the month. (p.90) When people are put in a tough spot where working part time or full time is out of the picture; it gives them the opportunity to either sit back and do nothing about it and complain ; or make money where it is possible and trust in God. George, who is one of many stroke victims that are physically unable to work, did something that I thought was very different, and stood out compared to how most other people would react.
Until men are raising children as much as women are women won 't be able to equal in the workplace and we are so behind as a nation, in terms of flexible work patterns and parental leave(Gloria Steinem).The us does not provide paid parental control and is behind as a nation paid parental control is when women get paid a portion of their check from work when they leave work to take care of a newborn child.Paid parental leave should be a state requirement to all countries and every woman should at least get 50% of their paycheck. The economy can grow in many ways and eventually catch up to other countries,new parents financially can be jovial returning to the workspace. New parents intuitively are more likely to return to the workspace after taking paid maternity in this instance the economy overall receives a productivity boost from paid parental leave policies.the economy in years will grow stronger because these women will work harder and drive in more income so paid parental control is well indeed needed in the us. A study from Rutgers university states that women are 39 percent less likely to receive public assistance and 40 percent less likely to receive food stamps
