People are paid time off for reasons less important than having a baby. Most parents fear the first day they have to leave their baby in a new child care facility. Sometimes the unpaid time that most people take affects their family because everyone struggles when a paycheck is not coming in. The cost of raising a new baby buying diapers, clothes, formula, and medical bills all adds up when there is no income coming in. Some of the recourses I plan to use to back take on the argument are the websites and periodicals, I will research and gather data that supports statistics that show the states that have enforced paid maternity leave in the work place have higher employment return.
People have to work multiple jobs because most places only hire part time and pay minimum wage. Even after working sixteen hour days people are still barely able to pay bills and can only eat sparingly to get by. The wealthy are getting wealthier because the government is creating laws that allow them pocket more money. As the wealth inequality increases it puts more burden on the middle class. The wealth inequality is growing in America and it keeps
It would be practically impossible to get by. Million dollar companies such as Walmart, CVS, and Costco can definitely afford to pay all of their employees the minimum of $15 per hour. The fact that the cost of living continues to rise and our wages stay at a minimum is pretty outrageous. This is why the rich will become richer and the poor will stay
Americans work and still have not enough money to take car all of their necessity needs for them and their families. Some still have to depend on the welfare system to eat and take care of all their bills just to make it month after month. This is the welfare system called Department of children and families have a part to play in to families who can’t afford to feed their children or pay full amount of rent on their own some people need the help of a system that can help them pay bills and feed their families without doing illegal things to get money or food to provide for their families. Some men and women are locked u because they couldn’t afford to take care of their families the right way so they believed the only way they can provide for their family is to rob steal and maybe kill to make sure their family is well taken care of. But minimum wage has been an issue for such a long time without anyone really considering changing the rate of minimum wage so families can actually take care of their
These groups are mostly involved to do household and childcare activity in a family. Furthermore, the increase of spending behind healthcare also adds a major factor for the elderly and the youth who has to support the elderly. Looking at the cost to maintain housing and family, a survey made by ONS (2013) revealed that people spends at an average of £147.90 per week on housing, £145.40 is spent
Since the Great Depression, there has been a minimum wage in America, but this minimum wage has changed 22 times since the Great Deprnbession. Many people say minimum wage should stay at $7.25 like it has been since 2009. Meanwhile, other people believe that minimum wage should be $15.00 so they can have more money to live comfortably. People think that a higher minimum wage will help, but it will hurt more people than it will help. If America makes the minimum wage $9.00, people will no longer be in poverty and it will make the economy balance out.
The issues I saw when watching this show was; house, transportation, and health care. First, it’s really hard for the couple to find a place meeting their budget. Having a place to live is important to a lot of people because you have a roof over your head. Secondly, working a minimum wage job is always tough when you have no car to get you to your job, the husband took a bus to get to where he’s going while the wife walks to work. Having a car means you also have to pay for the insurance which is expensive for people who can’t afford it.
Out of the 4 issues, I chose the issue about minimum wages. I believe that Liberal Party 's right. This party said that they want and plan to increase the minimum wage to $15. I agree that the minimum hourly wage should be raised. This is because there are lots of citizens that have families or financial problems and sometimes the money is not enough to support a family.
Minimum wage is affecting employment, businesses, and how people live in ways that are unrewarding. In 2014, the Congressional Budget Office estimated that if the federal minimum wage raised in 2016 to $9.00 that about 100,000 workers would be unemployed. They also estimated if it were raised to $10.10 that about 500,000 workers would lose their jobs (“The Effects of a Minimum-Wage…”, 2015). With an increase of minimum wage companies would have
The talk of the town has been the fast food strike for minimum wage to raise to $15 dollars an hour. Many are against this because they do not feel like fast food restaurants deserve to be paid $15 dollars an hour to flip a burger and deep fry French fries. Others, believe that they do deserve that much because they cannot live a comfortable life on the minimum wage now. The controversy is whether a fast food job is suppose to be a short term job or a long term career? There are many other professions that went through years of schooling and testing and only make a little over $15 an hour.
