The Immigration Council says that there is “no correlation between Immigration and Unemployment”. What this means is that when Immigration rates were high, unemployment rates were low. This supports the idea that Immigration actually creates jobs. The article also goes on to say “recent immigrants comprised an average of 3.1 percent of the population in counties with the highest unemployment rates. But recent immigrants accounted for a higher share of the population (4.6 percent) in counties with the lowest unemployment rates”.
Immigration are people from all over the country who come here to have a better life & get better jobs so they can provide for their families. They move from one country to another one because life wasn’t easy in their country. Some come for a couple of years & then leave & some come to live here forever. If they stay forever they have to take a test to earn their citizenship. In the United States we give chances to people in other countries to come over here in the land of the free to have a better chance at life.
“Time to Assert” contains several opinion based facts within the argument when describing how to deal with crime. Within “Time to Assert,” it comments, “A case like Michael Fay’s is important because it provides a chance to challenge an inhumane practice that ought not to exist anywhere” (Time to Assert 179). This quote from the editorial illustrates no true factual evidence and supports more of a biased argument that is heavily based on the editors opinions. The editorial implies no evidence that effectively helps with supporting the argument.
For examples, one of my nephew is pays nearly 10, 0000 dollar taxes every years. That way the government can help people who need money such as food stamps and all. Also, Immigrants people helps to develop science and technologies, and other fields. For example, the research by the Kauffman in the article Immigrants Are Crucial to the American Dream says that “25 percent of the U.S science and technology companies have their chief executives are foreign born and these immigrant are highly educated (Mike Ford 241).” For all this reasons immigrants help American society in positive way as
The successful reduction of federal budget deficit encouraged wall street which allowed the creation of 22 million jobs ( the highest number ever under a single administration) and reduced the unemployment rate from 7.3% on January 20, 1993 to 4.2 on January20,2001 (Appendix B), which explain the decrease of the poverty rate. He also maintained a GDP average growth rate of 3.8 which could be considered as a good result, comparing to the precedent presidents after the Second World War only 3 of them performed better than him. We can mention Truman (4.8), Kennedy (5.2) and Johnson (5.1). Plus, Federal spending decreased from 22.2 percent of GDP in 1992 to 18.4 percent in 2000. According to the Washington Post the inflation rate was stable during bill Clinton presidency.
Not only are the outcomes of these felon disenfranchisement laws racist, but they are also classist. It is not news to many that the criminal justice system of the U.S. has many loopholes for rich people to pay their way out of jail time. The wealthy can afford top lawyers, pay bail, pay fines, and live in neighborhoods less frequently patrolled by the police. Defense lawyers for felony crimes can cost anywhere from $1000 to $2500 a day, and bail and fines are not on a sliding scale based off of income (NOLO, 2010). For an impoverished individual making only $1500 a month, the financial obstacles to fighting a winnable court case make conviction nearly inevitable.
In recent discussions of Social Security, a controversial issue has been whether it should affect all wages. On one hand, some argue that it should. From this perspective, Social Security funds the elderly and disabled; the ones who can use economic assistance. In the words of one of this view 's main supporters, “Social Security Benefits keep more than 21 million seniors out of poverty each year. Social Security provides the majority of cash income for almost two thirds of the elderly.
Immigration For many years now the people of America have noticed the impact of immigration. People of all colors have come to America; from communities not too far to the very opposite of the world. The people from these places, however, also bring change to our nation. They bring with them different cultures and disgusting ways of life as they try to pave their life here, and that is something that must be addressed.
As of 2016, for an average family of four to get by will cost 46,000 dollars a year, but the average salary for someone without a degree working full time only makes an average salary of 21,000 dollars a year (Troutman). So it is easily seen that forking up 500 dollars a month for student loans is close to impossible even with both parents working. In addition, just because these college graduates have degrees does not mean that finding a high paying job is easy, some may be completely incapable of paying back student loans. Degrees that have a little to no job market such as arts and humanities, social science, and philosophy may be great things for personal interest but not for financial support. These degrees can leave one stranded in the land of unemployment or in a low paying job; Afterall, 7.2% of all college graduates are unemployed and 14.7% are underemployed
Research on the economic effects of undocumented immigrants is scarce but existing studies suggests that the effects are positive for the country that they are in. Consider a scenario where undocumented immigrants are granted legal status and citizenship during the year 2013 the U.S. GDP, would grow by $1.4 trillion over 10 years between 2013 and 2022. "Americans would earn an additional $791 billion in personal income over the same time period—and the economy would create, on average, an additional 203,000 jobs per year." (Lynch, Oakford) Over the span of five years undocumented immigrants would earn 25.1 percent more than they do now and $659 billion more from 2013 to 2022, meaning they would be benefiting in
“The total U.S. population will grow to almost 417 million — 108 million more than in 2010. In recent years, on average, 1.1 million green cards (for new legal permanent immigrants) have been issued annually” (Zeigler). The U.S. has welcomed immigrated people into the country, but more have entered illegally mainly because of the process required to enter the country is very difficult. The nation’s immigrant population (legal and illegal) hit a record 41.3 million in July 2013, an increase of 1.4 million since July 2010. Since 2000 the immigrant population is up 10.2 million.
On average the Federal Mint spends 1.4 cents for every penny that they create. This doesn’t seem like a big deal, but considering that there are 13 billion pennies created annually in the US the cost for creating them gets very large very fast. Making them cost more to create than their actual value. Eliminating that cost would allow the budget spent on the Federal Mint to be reduced and there would be more cash in the Federal Budget to spend on other things. One argument against the elimination of the budget is the fact that it will alter the way American citizens are able to pay for things in a negative way.
A mogul in both the welfare and healthcare systems, Medicaid has a large margin of financial abuse from both sides of the spectrum; healthcare providers and patients alike, both misuse and abuse Medicaid. “Fraud and abuse in Medicaid cost states billions of dollars every year,
Legalizing “Illegal Immigrants” in America There is a controversial debate and emotionally driven argument about “illegal immigrants” being legalized in America. There is a common misconception of what an illegal or legal immigrant is, many people believe that it’s an easy process and that the government grants a visa at no cost and that the immigrant is able to potentially work their way to becoming a resident or a citizen. The alarming truth is that the process is much more difficult than many Americans can understand and with the laws and regulations that are being enforced by the government gives some immigrants no other choice but to enter the United States illegally.
