They have delivered positive attributes to the United States and have had a major impact in economic growth. It is great that immigrants are able to come into the U.S and have such a positive impact in the economy. However, many feel that U.S economy would do just fine without the immigrants. They believe that it will open up more chances for U.S citizens to become better innovators and come up with ideas to grow the economy.
Many argue that an increase in minimum wage will help guide low skilled workers out of poverty and assist them into having a better career. That is not necessarily true, Many economists can agree that minimum wage jobs such as cashiers, host or a hostess are not jobs that meant to support a family.

A raise in minimum wage will cause loss of jobs, an increase in the inflation rate, increase in
If the government is limited, then the economy is allowed to grow and prosper bettering the lives of the American people. With a limited government, my businesses would be able to get kickbacks and drawbacks from the railroad, further increasing my profit, and aiding the economy. Also, with a more limited government, as the founder and owner of a company can have more control over my property and workers then the government does.

They are starting new businesses which open up to providing goods, services and even new jobs for Americans (De Pena and La Corte). The evidence, that America has more workers at established companies and new businesses that other countries possibly don’t have, supports the idea of accepting refugees to come to the United States. According to this information, the refugee settlement helps the U.S economy significantly and has a major positive impact on it. Therefore, if the government keeps rejecting refugees, they’ll be missing out on an immense opportunity to have a stronger and wealthier economy. Refugees may have a big contribution to the economy, but the safety
The fact is that the upper class should pay more and higher there taxes. Making their taxes higher can help many others who need money. Such as poor people, organizations, and others who are struggling with certain things. It wouldn't hurt them to higher the taxes because they just get so much more money than lower and middle class.

Eryn Watkins Van Dyck Life as a Minimum Wage worker The minimum wage has been subjected to a lot of debate and argument throughout North America.

Although these rich Americans want the government to handle the issue of taxation they feel posing higher taxes on them is just not fair. They feel they are hard working citizens who spend a great deal of time working at their business. It is through risks that they may have taken that got them to the positions that they got to today. They feel frustrated when people call them greedy because of their wealth because they feel the poor are the greedy people. The poor receive handouts from the government for everything in their lives, and the rich have to finance these projects.
This was mainly due to the capitalistic government where the economy was based on private owned industries. Bellamy’s idea of a more socialistic economy was favored more by the lower-class as it would have allowed the government to better allocate wealth which may close the gap between the upper-class and lower-class citizens. In Bellamy’s novel Dr. Leete, explains that everyone gets the same opportunity, same wages, and same education. The government distributes everything so that the citizens all get equal chances. The only difference between citizens is what he or she chooses to do with their resources (Bellamy).
Immigrants deserved to be called as people stealing American jobs while immigrants are going hunger and risking everything to find a job. Furthermore, jobs opportunities exist throughout the nation, but taking advantage of those opportunities is what it is causing the

After all, it was the roaring twenties, a period of boundless opportunities and a time where U.S. companies were producing manufactured goods faster than the nominal per
The businesses took advantage of their workers by extending work hours but also leaving their wages the same. They were trying to work them for every penny they could not caring who they were hurting in the process. The people also disfavored the new political system they did not agree with politicians no longer listening to the opinions of the people, they felt that they were being silenced and they could do nothing about it. The corporations may have lowered the costs of a few accommodations but it was outweighed by the unfairness the people had to deal with.
A statement made from a business owner says, “Many businesses cannot afford to pay their workers more money, and will be forced to close, reduce hiring, or lay off workers.” People with no work experience or even less skilled workers across America will be unemployed.
