I think one of the most difficult decisions Franky had to make was leaving for America, Going to America where everything is perfect, free, and everyone has enough to eat has been his dream/his mother’s dream for him. After saving is money from his job, stealing food, and occasionally “stealing” money out of the purse of his boss for overtime, he finally had enough to get there. He leaves eager, but as soon as the boat leaves Ireland, Franky starts to miss is, getting overcome with memories of his home. He starts to rethink his saving strategy for America; that money could’ve gone into food, clothes, shoes, and coal for his family. He feels awful for hitting his mother after his first drink.
My first view point I want to illustrate is paying college athletes can affect their overall performance. I mean think about it what is any college athletes dream? Their dream is to make it to the big leagues and get paid therefore they put their best into every game they paly hoping to get noticed by some big time scouter. If you start paying them there is no point to try to make it to the big leagues, because you are already getting paid. Also payment can take away their motivation to put 110% into every game that they play which means they will not be as big of factor on the team.
Money is very important to almost everyone so when they hear about the American dream of coming to America and getting rich they will come and take their chances and come.

A lot of parents come to America to help their children or future children get better educations and opportunities. Many parents sacrifice their family and everything they know to come to America to start a family and make sure their children have a better life then they had and had the things their parents couldn 't get in their home country.
According to Gregory Mantsios in “Class in America: Myths and Realities,” social class has a large influence on your educational achievements through life.

However, he is ineffective in using logos to persuade his audience on why grade inflation is wrong and is need of their participation to initiate change. The main topic of the article is how grade inflation is not helping students and is a detriment to their future.
I believe the difficult journey for immigrants and all they had to do to start over in a new country was worth the hardships they faced. This is because after all their hard work, things slowly but surely, started to get better. The hardest part was getting started. Although many immigrants were leaving for a better life or trying to escape political injustice, these men, women, and children were leaving their old life forever. In “Shutting Out the Sky”, Leonard Covello remembered before leaving Italy, “The gold you find in America will not be in the streets…

“It’s an irrefutable fact that college gives you a significant and persistent advantage decade after decade” (Daly, 2). However, not knowing what you want to do and not succeeding at it would make the college tuition not worth the money. College is very important because of the life experiences and financial gain you will have. College is worth the expense of tuition because you learn about life. Such as the personal responsibility of being on your own, having the motivation to get up in the morning to go to class, cleaning up after yourself, and all of the friends and connections that you will make and have in the future.

It may be that it is in small and thoughtful gestures that we can change ingrained, thoughtless prejudice. In fact, after intervening in some teasing and being told, quite rightly, to mind my own business by both victims of my classmates’ careless fun, I hit upon a wonderful plan suitable to my character. I hope I am not building it up as something equal to Martin Luther King Jr. joining of character to thoughtfulness in its accomplishments, because in the end it was only a class presentation. Frankly, public speaking is my greatest fear, but this time it was from my heart and went beautifully. The theme was my friendship with these people of other faiths, and how much I learned about my own religion from them.
Although some maintain that success comes easier to people who come from a higher class family, giving them a better opportunity, those who come from a lower class family have a more difficult time succeeding, I argue that no matter what class you come from, being able to succeed is the same amount of effort because success is different for everyone. According to George Packer, author of Sam Walton/Jay Z, success comes easily to those who come from higher class, like Sam Walton, founder of Walmart. Sam’s father exposed him to money, and how important it was. His father got a job repossessing farms during the Great Depression and brought Sam along when he was on the job.
America, the land of equity, has the largest ratio of rich citizens to poor citizens at 12:1. Compared to Japan and Germany’s measly 4:1, this information is outrageous. America is shown to have the most skewed economic pyramid when denoting the amount of people on each side of the economic slide. The selection, Class in America - 2006, an academic paper by Gregory Mantsios, argues the existence and magnitude of class and economic standing in the United States; through the use of fact and opinion, he creates the visual of a society severely divided by economic standing. Gregory Mantsios effectively convinces the audience of the differences in class sanding that cause a significant impact in the lives of americans and economic spectrum with his use of logos, anticipation, and credible evidence.
Summary According to Dictionary.com, poverty is defined as the state or condition of having little or no money, goods, or means of support; also known as a condition of being poor (Dictionary). In the article, “The State of Poverty in America,” written by a renowned lawyer and author, Peter Edelman, the issue of poverty and the extent of how widespread it has domestically become is redundant throughout. Within his writing, he explains in great detail how poverty is a deeply rooted problem that society faces in two ways, as well as the longtime affects of the troubles and hardships poor people experience every day. The first way poverty is categorized is when people consistently work long and hard hours for a job that is very low-waged with no benefits.
One of the many things that I learned during our discussions during these past 3 weeks was the thought about how luck plays a much more important role in life then I thought previously, and how the perception of how people came to be successful, affects how they use their wealth for the good of others. The main argument brought up by Robert H. Frank, in his article Why Luck Matters Much More Than You Think, is that it is not just hard work that helps people gain success in life, but luck actually plays a much more important role in helping people succeed than most people believe. Frank then believes that based off of your perception that you are successful from luck or hard work, also affects how willing your are to use your wealth to help other people. The type of mindset I had before reading this article and having our discussion was that the only way to become successful in life was to work hard.
Social class influences the experience of growing up. Middle-class and working-class parents hold different values and expectations for their children. In working class families children tend to spend their time at home or with extended family. They are more likely to grow up in neighborhoods that are less safe for children.
