Johnson’s everyday tasks, she took me to the campus lab. Once there, I plated different bacteria for her classes’ next experiment. Less than twenty-four hours later, I returned to key in more data and to see the growth of what I had plated. That job shadowing experience gave me preparation for my next two years of high school biology classes where we used some of the same techniques and tools. Moreover, it solidified my choice to pursue a medical research career.

It is because there is big gap between the higher class wages and the middle class wages. The higher class seems to be making more and more money while the middle class is not. The money going out to these CEO’s, Executives and all these high positions for established companies is astronomical. They are making so much money that they have no way of spending it all.
Focusing on America, our population has grown insanely high since the “dirty thirties”. While population has risen, so have prices. The price on many, many products have gone up in the last decade, making people with a lower pay struggle with living. It’s crazy how many people are unemployed in the US right now and with people believing there will be an 80% stock market crash in 2016, things could only get worse. It’s certainly hard for many people to keep a job or life while trying to live off of $7.50 an hour.
The pro is that many immigrants are entrepreneurs and tend to bring value to the economy, in which raises the GNP. However, the con is that immigrants tend to compete for unskilled jobs against unskilled citizens. That does not deny the tremendous value that immigrants, many of them entrepreneurs, bring to the economy. In fact, a hefty proportion of foreigners entering America have high levels of education and are moving directly into the nation 's suburbs and professional classes. ``The net effect of immigration is still that it raises the GNP, ' ' says Harvard economist Richard Freeman, co-author of the NBER report.
Big businesses boomed during this era, however, in business owners efforts to produce more money the working class suffered from unfair wages and working conditions. In Nash’s findings, he reported, “In 1890, the top 1 percent of American families possessed over a quarter of the wealth, and the top 10 percent of American families possessed over a quarter of the wealth, … But wages for the unskilled increased by only 31 percent- a substantial differential that widened as the century drew to a close” (407). Through the economic disparities between classes, it caused unworkable working conditions and unsanitary living conditions. Unskilled workers were often responsible for hard labor jobs, many men worked in coal mines, factories, farms and more. Despite these harsh working conditions workers received minimal wages, resorting themselves and their families to live in tenement houses, crowded, unclean, and disease-ridden housing units. This was the price of class inequality, poverty, unclean working conditions, and backbreaking work all for minimal pay so big businesses could make a

American citizens face a dearth of well-paying jobs and secure employment in the scientific and technology sector in the twenty-first century. Many American workers accuse H1-B visa as the most significant factor behind the lack of current employment opportunities. However, as is usual with most financial situations, the furor began with the national economy. The growth of a globally-connected economy propelled American businesses to move many domestic operations to foreign countries with lower labor costs (CITE). Unfortunately, the spread of offshoring jobs from low-skill manufacturing to high-wage technology and scientific jobs has reduced the human capital level of the United States (CITE)

After summer break, I returned to Westlake High School for my junior year, feeling as if something was missing. The decision to spearhead the creation of a chapter of the Science National Honor Society (SNHS) at my school arose because of my desire to establish a niche where high school students could express their shared passion for the sciences. The SNHS would provide enlightening scientific activities and opportunities for students, and the Science club would serve as a path to introduce members into the society. I initially proposed the creation of the society in a meeting with the Principal and Board of Education. Quite a few obstacles had to be overcome to start a new organization in the school.

Many concerns exist regarding the change of pattern in the distribution of income; families that once were in the middle of the distribution have shifter upward and downwards. Economist Kuttner, Author of The Economic Illusion, argued that this shift in pattern began as well-paying jobs in the manufacturing industry and lack of unionization in growing sectors declined. Another contributing factor to the ever rising income inequality is attributed to the rise of skill-biased technology.
