You can’t trust ’em to be fair.”(84), but these Americans like Jake were immigrants themselves only a few generations ago. Assimilating to American culture takes time along with learning the language and social norms. The first few generations are the most difficult, but afterwards the immigrants can be accepted as American people and in many cases slowly become more and more successful as time goes on. The Shimerdas were aware of this, as Atonia explains to Jim shortly after New Year’s Eve why her family would be able to pay off a debt to the Burdens. ”But my mama, she want Amrosch for be rich”(59).
$15 an hour sounds great to almost everybody, but most people don’t realize that if we all made $15 an hour it wouldn’t be as great as it sounds. The federal minimum wage should not be raised and should be kept at $7.25 because its negative effects on people 's income, inflation of prices due to a domino effect and the loss of jobs in mass numbers. There is no reason to raise the minimum wage in the first place, one of the claims I have heard from you is the ”reduction of poverty.” The problem with this claim is that the majority of poor Americans do not work at all, for any wage, so raising the minimum wage does not help them. It is like giving extra milk to a lactose intolerant person, it has no effects and only takes milk away from the rest
“Our country 's parental leave policies are woefully behind the rest of the world, and today San Francisco has taken the lead in pushing for better family leave policies for our workers” (Wiener) . Parental leave is when the companies/ government pay a worker to spend time with their newborn in the family. Recently the United States was acknowledged to be the only country to not have mandatory parental leave for parents of newborns. This would be arguable for whether or not it should be allowed and enforced as a new law. Reasons for parental leave would be financial issue, bonding time and educational increases.
Immigrants are taking the jobs from the youth because they work for lower wages and are willing to work for longer
According to a professor named Robert B. Rich “$10.10 isn’t enough to lift all workers and their families out of poverty. Most low-wage workers aren’t young teenagers; they’re major breadwinners for their families, and many are women. And they and their families need a higher minimum wage.” Robert is saying that the minimum wage should be increased because for most people in a family that earns all of the money to support their family will need to get out of poverty. Therefore raising the minimum wage would be benefit.
Its primary aim is to tackle poverty and improve standards of living by ensuring every worker enjoys a minimum level of income (Mark, 2012). However, some policymakers state that this policy is inefficient since it negatively affects more people than it benefits (Robert, 1974). This paper focuses on the positive and negative effects of minimum wage and whether the government should abolish
Forgiveness programs can be lifesavers for borrowers drowning in student loan debt (Snider 1). However, jobs for recent grads are harder to find and salaries are lower, but that won't last forever; in spite of all of this, the data make clear that getting a college education is still a good idea. College graduates earn more and are more likely to have a job in the first place, and is especially important for some Americans (Webley 2). According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2010, the unemployment rate was 9.2 percent 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
Zastrow notes that African Americans and Latinos tend to be the first fired due to discrimination and their lower levels of educational expertise (2014, p. 376). Many cannot receive another job because of their educational status. Occupational social workers need to provide services to these laid-off minorities in order to ensure they receive another job and do not fall below the poverty line. Retirement may also lead to poverty; individuals may not receive Social Security benefits in the future because more people need Social Security than our contributing to it. By educating employees on how to overcome this, occupational social workers are not only combating future poverty, but are teaching better financial practices now.
In the centuries the cost of college has gone up and the price of education and counseling has gone down, with job security putting the nail in the coffin. More kids are prone to drop out of college due to the cost, but still have a good job. For people who come from a rich family they would never have to think about dropping out, but for the average Joe college is not an option because of the amount of money it takes and there is no promised guarantee that you will have a job after
t is extremely important to have the support of parents and carers in a school, they are a valuable resource .The parents and primary carers will always be associated with being the childâ€™s first educators and being the people who know their children best. Other people may disagree. Parents and carers see their children at their best and worse, they will know most things about them this information can then be passed on to the school this will enable them to react and support the child /young person . it is effectively working as a partnership with the school and will benefit the child and young person.
