Illegal immigration has aided the nation’s economic growth by allowing businesses to prosper as the illegal immigrants have provided cheap labor and long hours of hard work. Businesses are not providing insurance both medical and retirement plans for their illegal workers. This results in a lower production cost for the companies and lower prices of goods and services for everyone. Despite the fact that illegal immigrants may not contribute directly to the economy in the aspect of paying taxes like income tax, they contribute to the economy in the form of sales taxes. They do this by purchasing the supplies they need in the same way native citizens or legal immigrants do in order to survive.
Despite this, the U.S. Mint keeps churning out a billion pennies a month.” The complete waste of time and money spent producing these pennies just to be forgotten in the couch cushions is astounding. If every penny is 1.8 cents to produce than the government is giving away 800 million USD every single year. The same article says, “...10 million new useless items punched out by government workers who could be more usefully employed tracking counterfeiters.” In other words, the government isn’t only wasting money on penny production but, also a working staff. U.S. currency could be more protected if it wasn’t for the pesky penny. To sum up, if people took the time to research how the penny was affecting us as a nation we could be closer to the
Food waste in American has grown by an unfathomable amount. After we eat dinner we casually scrape off the leftover scraps into the trash not thinking about the food we are wasting. We go to restaurants and order appetizers, entree, and desserts only to consume about half of each letting the remainder go to waste, but why do we waste it food?

A few reasons are that food is sold much cheaper in the United States than nearly anywhere else in the world, people desire the perfect produce, and inefficiencies in our food system/ farming process.

One of the pros for the business owners is that there 's no minimum wages, this is because they can pay any worker anything they want.

Another con for the workers was that was no workers compensation, this means if they got injured they just simply lost a job, starved, and eventually died. Of course this was an automatic pro for the business owners, without having to pay work injured workers their
The gilded age gets it is name from the many great fortunes created (Mark Twain). Wal-Mart is the powerful and wide range cover retailer stores in America. One of the Wal-Mart benefits were low price with a lot of items in one place. As well as, Wal-Mart has more than 40 million employee all over the nation in it is 3000 stores.

Walmart for one example is no better because they hire Asians to make clothes and toys for very little pay. Then Walmart hires other companies, called mega-suppliers to fill and put out orders. After that, these mega-suppliers hire other subcontractors to cover up their dirty little tracks. The reason these Western brands are covering up their tracks is because the inspectors wouldn’t be able to sue them. Another reason is that these companies know how badly they treat their employees.
Ford founded that it was much easier for the line to move while the workers were stationary. This made it so his employees could perfect one specific job that they were good at. The assembly line cut the time to make a car form 12 hours to two hours and 30 min. Henry produced so many cars his prices could be lowered in 1908 the Model or the “Tin Lizzie” costed $850 and was cut to less than $300 in 1925.

One-hour photo finishing at retail stores is another reason the company made the decision to close the Qualex Houston photo processing lab. The one hour photo finishing is much cheaper than paying workers to process the photo. Times were changing and the company was changing with the time. There was no demand for processing the photos.
The wealthy will try and manipulate laws so that they won’t be taxed as much. Viewing this argument through Olsson’s article, give the reader a hint on how Wal-Mart deals with them being taxed. They find way to manipulate their employees in working extra time without paying them for those extra hours. This way if they don’t pay their employees those extra hours they won’t be taxed for it and even gain a profit as well. In the end the lower class will loss and not have a fighting chance against powerful retail company like
