The author Steven Camarota argued that immigrants and natives compete within one another to get a job. Immigrants migrating to the U.S. is affecting the gross domestic product and it is not benefiting the native-born population. The article “Immigration’s Economic Impact,” highlights some important facts that immigrants benefit the U.S. labor force and the income of natives in a positive way. The article gives brief examples on how immigrants contribute to the economy when they purchase items. According to Bush “In this scenario the opportunity to work abroad temporarily can help finance large purchases or investments (like a house, car, or new business) in home
(reduces economic gap between social classes). People would become richer but it’s at the expense of the government becoming poorer. The government will have to take out more loans and have more debt. Cons: USFG shouldn’t pay reparations to African Americans Cost America pay they don’t have As we speak, America’s debt is at 18.2 trillion dollars and rising. If we pay every slave minimum wage for their work, we would have to pay trillions of dollars.
Companies, especially manufacturers, will turn toward automated replacements (Karsten, and West). These replacements will cost more overhead, but since they do not need to be paid, company revenue will increase. This is the worst result of a wage increase, as people will lose far more jobs than
The Economic Benefits of Immigration Aseel Al Mohammadi Zayed University Martin and Midgley states that immigrants now are 31 million individuals in United States (as cited in Stewart and Jameson, 2013). Immigration is sometimes a process of traveling from one’s native country to another due to lack of job opportunities or disasters. According to Stewart & Jameson (2013), the U.S is considered to be a nation of immigrants and it strikes fear into citizen’s hearts because of the potential affect of immigrants on the labor market.

A quote from the book essentially captures what Stiglitz is trying to promote, "The top 1 percent of Americans gained 93 percent of the additional income created in the country in 2010, as compared with 2009." The book does a fantastic job of laying out the facts. The Price of Inequality is basically divided into three
That workers in the lower class and middle class are employed by the upper class and are getting paid for less than what their work sells for. No government system should have devised plan to separate the rich from the poor, and try to keep them that way, and that is exactly what capitalism is doing. Communism does the exact opposite of this and emphasizes everyone being equal. Among American citizens right now, according to the article, “Wealth Inequality” it claims, “America’s top 1 percent, for instance, holds nearly half the national wealth invested in stocks and mutual funds” (1). How is it possible for the other 99% of people to try to move up when only 1% hold half of the nation's wealth?
The question is if a first world country such as the United States still has people who struggle in its nation due to income, why hasn 't there been anything done, knowing the fact that the government has enough money and power to make a difference. According to PovertyTalk.Org the United States has a 12.7% of people who are considered living at the poverty level, which is approximately 40.6 million people out of roughly 323.1 million. To fix this issue, companies should look to hire more people who are jobless or of low income because it helps stimulate the socioeconomic paradigm in reducing levels of poverty, decreasing amounts of health risks, and strengthening the nation 's overall democracy.
