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
They say that they are going to go to go to college to get a degree in visual arts and then pursue their dreams. Sounds pretty neat right? If tons of debt for not that much school sounds neat to you then you have come to the right place! According to Michael Carpenter, A writer and photographer at Huffington Post, the average college student graduates with around $35,000 of student loan debt. That by itself is a pretty bitter pill to swallow, but what truly tops this cake is the fact that new photography graduates only net around $42,000 a year.
“Public acceptance of getting rid of the penny is higher than it is for the dollar, but savings is higher for the dollar than it is for the penny” (Howard). The U.S. mint is already releasing dollar coins for collectors’ purposes. It would only take a small amount of work to increase production of the golden coins and decrease that of the
As of 2009, the average income of someone with a high school diploma was 7840 dollars more than that of a high school dropout (U.S. Department of Education 14). It might not sound like much, but it can make a huge difference. It’s more a person can save for a nice house, more to pay off their car, or more to put away for retirement. Without a diploma, managers might even refuse to see someone when they apply. Www.npr.com has an example of this.
Sales were skyrocketing and Charles Darrow was becoming wealthy. Parker Brothers was the major company that handled the profits of the game. In 1932, the Parkers Brothers bought Elizabeth’s patent for $500. They were only allowed to though if they continued to create the “The Landlord’s Game” and “Monopoly” simultaneously. In 1939 a third edition of “The Landlord’s Game” was published by the Parker Brothers, but they did nothing to promote it though.
This money comes out of the United States taxpayers, in other words, it comes out of your pocket.These people make money for inflicting pain on people and breaking their spirits. Instead of them making friendships with the enemy, which can help in the long term.The United States spent 300 million dollars for nonpersonal and to build one of the black sites and it cost nearly just 200000 dollars just to set it up. This is unneeded, we do not need to spend 300 million dollars to set this up this money can go elsewhere and help with military, education, charities, and to get out of our national
In contrast, money managers earn about $34.9 per hour, which adds up to about $72,580 per year. Although, unlike civil engineers, later in life money managers could make up to $1 million (Welcome to Career Cruising 2.0). Making $1 million for me, is very unlikely to happen because one would need to be one of the top money managers in order to do this. I do not think I will be one of the best to where I could ever make this much money. Overall, based on their average earnings and taking into consideration my possible inability to earn $1 million as a money manager, I would rather become a civil engineer in order to support my future
The nation's financial aid system currently fails to provide an equal opportunity to everyone qualified. with high amounts of student loan debts has been shown to reduce a person's chances of owning a home, getting married, having children, and accumulating wealth. The earnings for a full time minimum wage worker is $15,080 at the federal minimum wage of $7.25. Full-time work means working 2,080 hours each year, which is 40 hours each week. A better educated population could result in smarter decision making at every level of society, which could lead to
The International Union against Cancer reported that a study of four countries with the ban reduced consumption between 14 and 37% within a 15-year examination. On another note, analysts show that although the industry is indirectly and directly linked to 26 million jobs, the ban wouldn’t necessarily affect the employment. If consumers stopped putting so much money into smoking and instead into goods and services, more jobs would be created in that area (Morris,
In the Article “Actually, college is very much worth it” by Andrew J Rotherham, paragraph 5 it says that it was only a median weekly earning for someone with some college was $712 and a college graduate was $1038. This shows that the better education you have the better percentage it has. Of course another reason to go to college is that you will have a less chance of being unemployed, In a the same article as before paragraph 5 “Meanwhile in 2010. The unemployment rate was 9.2 for those with only some college and more than 10 percent for those with just a high school degree, but it was 5.4 percent for college graduates” this is another piece of evidence that going to college will benefit your life, it will help you when you have trouble finding a job the owner of a place will see you are college graduate and will most likely pick you for your past experience.
Around 50% of the responders (549 out of 1102) rejected that idea and mentioned ‘It is not good idea to include transportation cost in semester fee.’ However, 245 responders indicated that they were ready to pay $10 to $15 per each semester for the transportation cost. Similarly, 220 responders agreed to pay $15 to $30 per semester. Only 88 responders voted for more than $30/semester transportation cost. Table 24 presents the details for the answer received regarding the question for commuters’ willingness to pay for the compulsory fixed transportation fee in
The Congressional Budget Office estimates that raising the minimum wage to $10.10 would boost earnings for around 16.5 million workers, while causing up to 1 million jobs to be eliminated. To me that’s not a great trade-off: according to CBO, the typical family living below the poverty line would see its annual income rise by only around $300, or about 2.8%. But for up to 1 million workers, their salaries would go to zero. Since most minimum wage workers receive a raise within one year anyway, eliminating jobs and cutting off from the first run on the ladder of job promotion seems too high a price to pay.
The book 1776 of David McCullough is very interesting history book. It took you back to the most relevant history time of American history of 1776. The book captures your attention with well-written narrative and format. The New york Times reviewed the book as “ the book is nonetheless a stirring and timely work, reminding us that it is soldiers rather than tavern patriots and windy politicians who have always paid the price of American idealism and determined successes” in 2005. David McCullough is a native Pennsylvanian.
The penny does have some good and it isn 't the only coin that cost more to produce than its worth. The nickel is 9.4 cents to produce while the penny is 2.4 cents to produce. People say if the nickel is more to produce than its worth why don 't we get rid of the nickel too, well the nickel you can buy more stuff with and the penny has less value and can 't really help you buy anything. Yes, the penny does help schools raise money for charity,Washington middle raised 3000 dollars in a penny drive last week. (source 3) If washington middle school raised 3000 dollars that would equal to 4200 dollars wasted in the
Many American families, especially those with high-deductible health insurance, struggle to afford the $500 sticker price for the life-saving drug. And with Mylan controlling a near-monopoly on such products, consumers were stuck between a rock and a hard place,” (Smith). The clear loser here is the consumer of these lifesaving drugs paying $500 dollars for medication that cost $0.65 to make. Heather Bresch, has faced very little personal repercussions for this misconduct outside of having her degree rescinded, the company settled out of court with the Federal government and paid a hefty
