Surprisingly, discrimination is still among the factors causing unemployment. Some employers discriminate job seekers based on their race, religion, age, residence, physique, gender, or even political ideologies. Landy (2005) claims, “Hundreds of thousands
As Senator Charles E. Schumer from Upfront Magazine has made clear, “We also need to give the millions of undocumented workers chance to settle their debt to society and earn legal status.” Senator Schumer’s point is that we have to give these immigrants a chance to benefit themselves and even us. Undocumented immigrants are workers and they can improve our economy so they should have a path to citizenship because they can earn legal status, and boost our economy. Of course it is possible to disagree with the view that immigrants improve the economy and instead argue that undocumented immigrants take American citizens’ jobs.
Visualize that you are an American that is unemployed and trying to look for a job, however everywhere you go the jobs are very limited. Well believe it or not that, many Americans are losing their jobs due to many reasons. Keep on reading to discover the reasons why American losing there jobs, for instance technology, low wage, and because the fat cats are manufacturing products overseas. To begin with, the first factor of why there is a limited amount of employment is because of technology. Technology is a big factor because a machine can do a task faster than a human.
If the minimum wage were to increase, consumers could see a rise in prices in their products. A majority of minimum wage workers are in a high competitive market, where the companies make smaller profit. In order for companies to
Affecting the American Pay Structure Nargis Fakhri once claimed that “To kill yourself for earning a salary is not worth it” (Fakhri). Despite this, many American citizens work hard for inadequate salaries. America’s many careers allow for an extremely diverse yet important selection of paths for workers, and it is up to them to decide where they go, even if it is into a low-paying career. As President Richard Nixon declared in his 1971 Labor Day Address, “no job is menial”; therefore, all jobs are important and should be treated as such (Peters and Woolley 27). No American citizen should be left alone to suffer through a small salary.
globalization has profound effects on the U.S economy as well as job security. One key impact of globalization is that jobs in the fields of technology, customer service, accounting and finance are getting outsourced, to cut costs, which increases unemployment. While businesses are entering new markets, making greater profits, the average American citizen does not benefit from flourishing businesses, only stakeholders and businesses owners do. There soon will be a larger shortage of doctors and nurses since it’s expensive to pursue a career as a doctor. The highest economic growth is occurring in Brooklyn and NYC, in the healthcare and technology industries.
Illegal immigrants do the jobs that makes it possible for the big companies to function. Their role is a key role. Immigrant’s absence would represent a huge vacuum in terms of production, and that is something that a country like America, which relies on efficiency when it comes to getting things done, cannot afford. Every existing job represents a necessity, and immigrant’s job, just like any other person´s job, is to fulfill that necessity. America´s immigrant population is as high as immigrant contribution.
Since they arrive they’re forced to jump through the hoops of the United States Government knowing any sort of lapse in judgement could result in them being forced to leave the country. In my own experience immigrants are the most hardworking people in this country, for instance my old supervisor worked two full time labor intensive jobs to support his family. Not many people could handle that much work, but he can among many others due to knowing that that sort of opportunity exists here. Most immigrants don’t leave their home country because they hate it; they leave because they want a brighter future for themselves. Whether that’s from pursuing education or working hard day in and day out, immigrants bust their asses in order to live here.
Liam Lynch Mr. Ryan English III--Research 26 August 2016 The American Dream Republican nominee Donald Trump is receiving criticism for his stance on illegal immigration, and although the criticism may be in good faith, perhaps the statements being made are true. In 2014, there were 8.1 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. labor force, potentially taking jobs from work seeking Americans (Rivera-Batiz 485). There may be a chance at truth that minorities are not beneficial for America. The American Dream is in jeopardy for millions because illegal immigrants are drawing benefits from welfare, participating in criminal activities, and lowering wages by taking jobs.
Undocumented immigrants are concentrated in specific jobs. The majority of them focus their work in service occupations farming and construction. These jobs would be severely affected if undocumented immigration stopped. Also the cost of production would increase because companies would have to hire American workers who would be paid more than immigrant workers. This increase in cost of production could also impact the price of certain products or services.
As Senator Charles Schumer, Upfront, 2016 has made clear, “we turn away too many people who want to enter the U.S legally”. There are people who could create jobs, invent new technologies, and boost our economy. Senator Schumer’s point is that as we turn down immigrants, we are turning down opportunities for the U.S to be a better place. Plus, they would pay taxes, just like any other American would. They are adding to the economy, which is why they should be allowed to become a citizen in the U.S.
People escape tyranny from their own governments to come to the United States to be used as cheap labor while under severe discrimination. Or global corporations making billions of dollars in profits, yet they neither pay taxes nor a decent salary to its hourly employees. To this day in history, the system still belongs to the ones at the top. Those who are perceived as weak or vulnerable could end up collaborating to the greatest cause without being fairly compensated.
Open market is what keeps the world economy afloat. It favors some countries more than others in particular the US. Without it during the Terrible Surplus the US wouldn’t have survived such crisis. Speaking in regards to current time the slogan “Let’s bring the jobs back to America” is just an unrealistic assumption. As time progresses the minimum wage is increasing nationwide, so no matter what sort of incentive you give manufactures to stop outsourcing jobs, they will still face a high minimum age compare to what a person makes in Asia.
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.
Companies have outsourced factory work to developing countries where they can pay the workers pitiful wages since the citizens of these countries are desperate to earn any money that they can. Whenever the citizens are no longer “desperate”, the company will just move their factory to another country. This is because corporations are unable to keep meaningful relationships. Even though these corporations want to seem that they are helping the citizens in these countries, they really do not care about these workers. Many of the corporations have harmed people in order to turn a profit.
