Being poverty-stricken and ripped off of any chance of a comfortable life with adequate education, healthcare and so on, poor people have suffered more than enough to be burdened with a derogatory label of ‘leeches’- meaning those who sponge on and exploit others. In my opinion, in stark contrast to ‘leeches’, poor people are not only those who deserve most support and care from society, but also share a part in the interdependent web of economy with rich people and contribute to their thrive. Of course, this idea would be made fun of by cynics. Have I not had any faintest remnants of sanity left to realize that poor people are sandbagging the economy and have become an extra burden for rich people, who, following their overwhelming altruism, have kind-heartedly extended a helping hand and financially support these wrecked beings? Charitable groups formed by wealthy people are growing like mushrooms to help the ‘less fortunate’.
And college can change you and shape you in ways you that might not imagine” (Attending College: What It’s All About…). You will have good life skills when you get out of college, you would have gotten a taste of what it has to offer. You become a lot more independent going to college “ Statistics show that a college diploma can help you get a job, keep a job, make more money”( Attending College: What It’s All About…). You will also grow as an young adults and mature but will not be all the way one your own, “College helps students develop into mature, responsible and independent adults. Colleges also offer students counseling and other support”(Attending College: What It’s All
If you are unable to afford college, then you should get loans in order to get your degree. You can pay these loans back and still have a better life and more money compared to the person that did not go or dropped out of college. These are the reasons for why students should not drop out of college. They should not drop out of college because college is the way to get their careers so they will have more job opportunities. If they stay in college, they will have more stability in the future since they will have more money.
A college degree can be helpful in attaining a future that you desire, but your own motivation to be happy is an important key to attaining happiness. While college can help you to pursue a career you enjoy, the degree itself in not your happiness. Having this degree is not going to make you much happier if you are already miserable. Many people feel that since a degree can raise the amount of money you make, you will be happy if you have one. However, there are a lot of miserable people with a lot of money.
Additionally, poverty is persistent due to the great recessions that occur in the US, challenges of people classifying themselves as poor people and living in distressed neighborhoods, and failed traditional practices (Kneebone & Holmes 2016). According to the courses, both internal or external pressures can cause poverty. Hence the poor cannot be blamed for poverty. As in the example of Parker, the poor person tries to satisfy a life that never meets. Poverty can be eliminated by changing the perspectives of viewing poverty from a traditional way or economic status grounds.
Poverty is shown in a differently in this book than other books being written in this time era, and in doing this, it shows the rich what they are, and how they treat others from a different perspective. Claire Shalinsky wrote an article titled “The Problem of Poverty in Gatsby”, and she explains how throughout the book, Jay Gatsby is picked apart, so we can see past
I have strong convictions that enable me to believe that a college education is imperative. They have enabled me to believe this because the results of a college education is greater productivity, a lower crime rate, better health, and better citizenship for more educated people. A college degree has a larger investment than stock markets and housing. In fact most college graduates believe that college was a good personal investment. In the article “Is a College Education Worth It” by Henry Punionion he encapsulates the essence of the importance of a college education.
The Effects of Money In the passage “The Want of Money” by William Hazlitt, Hazlitt uses various rhetorical strategies to establish his perspective on money. These rhetorical strategies used offer a deeper meaning on how the lack of money affects a person’s everyday life from the way they are judged by society, how they live their daily lives, and their views on themselves internally. With the lack of money and the abundance of it comes different experiences and issues arising from its core foundations. Society often regards someone of high income with respect, love, and appreciation, but the opposite gains only suspicion, distrust, and hatred. Hazlitt explains this phenomenon by stating “it is not to have your opinion consulted or else rejected with contempt, your acquirements carped out and doubted”(Lines 6-7).
As the rich gets richer because he is living a rich life and the poor gets poorer because he is living in poverty. Poverty has numerous causes and some of them are very basic. A few experts suggest that poverty is caused due to lack of sufficient employment opportunities and lack of sufficient food . The basic factors that may result in poverty are: insufficient education and employment opportunities, overpopulation, inability to meet standard of living and cost of living,certain economic and demographic drifts, the unequal distribution of assets in the worldwide economy, welfare incentives and environmental
Many choose to get into a college a easier way by getting a scholarship to pay less. There are many ways to get a scholarship like a sports scholarship, or a scholarship for being good in academics. Some get loans, but then later have to pay them back, which is more harder for people. In the article "What Makes College a Good Value?" by Jeremy Alder the author states,"Part of the quandary for many is that according to statistics, higher education leads to far greater earning opportunities" ( Alder, 1).
