Persuasive Argument National Athletes are/are not Paid Too Much The topic, pro athletes are/are not getting paid too much, is a heated argument between people. Have you ever thought about it? Well, an answer that I’m sure would be agreed with is that national athletes are paid way too much money. Some people might say that they deserve what they get, but there really isn’t any supportive reasons for that. People know that doctors and firefighters save lives, while athletes play a game to make money.
There are many types of fears: some imagined and some real. With scientific advancement comes displacement. Jobs that were thought to be impossible to replace, like the mill worker, burger flipper, or waiter, have been replaced by factories, burger flipping robots, and tablets. These jobs, through a combination of taxes and rapidly cheapening technology, kills these jobs. This has happened since the dawn of time: the bronze worker was
Mark Bauerlein, author of ‘The Dumbest Generation’, argues that today’s youth has had a decline in academics due to new technology in today’s economy. In retrospect, we’re growing up in a different time than the generation before us; the world and it’s products are different as to be expected, and with them we must learn new materials than they did. Today’s generation isn’t ‘dumb’, instead we’re adjusting to the times and retaining different knowledge than the generations before us. Many older generations always thinks that the generation after theirs is ‘dumber’, and think themselves to be the superior one. Why?
With the trend in advanced technology and using digital systems to take orders at restaurants, positions for restaurant employees are slowly starting to decrease. The trend in advanced technology could diminish the need for a slip-resistant shoe years to come. Most restaurants follow the safety trend in requiring employees to wear non-slip shoes. Slips and falls in the workplace cost US employers billions of dollars and rises with accounting for indirect costs including lost productivity, replacing workers and management time spent (CREWS, 2017). One of the easiest and most effective ways to help reduce such accidents is slip resistant footwear.
Starting with Britain leading the industrial revolution, other countries rapidly followed. Many cities were unable to handle the rapid urbanization, slums increased along with the crime rate. Industrialization transformed the family from being the chief unit of both production and consumption. Jobs for men slowly became less available but paid enough to support a family however women’s jobs were plentiful but underpaid. Child labor laws or lack thereof improved working conditions but separated them from their families.
Overproduction in America became a big problem due to technological and industrial advancements which left producers with too much supply, and not enough demand from consumers. Due to advancements in technology, production was at an all one high in America. Farmers were able to use new techniques, but began producing product too fast for it to be purchased. This overproduction left producers with too much product and a need to offload, so prices were driven down. As prices were driven down to the lowest point to create sales, this caused problems for the economy.
Globalization is a key theme that has been discussed in almost all of the above articles. Aguilar and Herod’s (2006) article argues that cleaners in the contemporary economy continue to suffer low wages and poor working conditions because of neo-liberalization. Neo-liberalization has resulted in many companies embracing the outsourcing of employees to save up on wages and social security benefits. From Banerjee’s (2007) article, it is clear that neo-liberalization and globalization are the main reasons that have led to an increase in working hours. This has made many companies restructure job designations because they want to maintain the long working hours and low wages.
We live in a depleting world. Although thoughts and awareness are being put in effort to save it, there are still reluctant demand and greed from people, who would want to acquire as much resource as possible for their personal benefits. Human’s greed lead to unsolvable problems both environmentally and politically. As natural resources are getting limited every day, it strongly affects not only to the people, but also to plants and animals. The consequences lead to creating higher risk of extinction, which means there will no longer be that specific species exist on earth forever.
All ages got the enjoyment of life stolen from them in this rigid era. Lack of help would only ruin these people as well as the time period as a whole. Poverty wasn’t always a question, but came about with the increase of industrialism (Swisher 42). It was during the middle of Queen Victoria’s reign and was labeled England’s “biggest trouble” (Evans). The accumulation in population added on to the catastrophe by leaving more people to be replaced by machines and eventually become poor.
