You my tell me that the minimum wage is strict but even when educated people like us are taken advantage then what is the condition of the poor people out there. They are not aware of many laws and totally fooled b their employers everyday. c) A new pair of Nike shoe may cost you $125. But the worker who put his effort and bloodshed in making the product will be getting only a dollar of it. Your shoe price is his monthly wage.
Tammy Crabtree works in the Burger King and she lives in mobile house with her four children. As she has no car, she walks 10 miles for the job and she works hard, still she has a low wage which is not sufficient to survive her family. His son Matt is doing well in school and he want to go in the community college.

Professional athletes are extremely overpaid for the “jobs” that they do. They only entertain for a living and get paid millions of dollars per season. Each sport is different in how they pay their athletes, and the difference in salaries from one player to another can be in the tens of millions of dollars. These athletes are paid for jobs that they only do for a certain number of games and do not even play the games over the course of an entire year. In most professional sports, they play in games for only a few months and then have a few months off.
The cost of this is most probably more than 7800$ so we can infer that he had no savings as he had to spend all of his money yearly including some of the money his wife made, so when she left him it must have been a huge decrease in funds for the family. This brings me to my third
This issue leads to the argument that it has become impossible to climb up the economic classes to somewhere comfortable. When using every paycheck to pay the bills, pay for food, and pay for children/necessities it turns into a vicious cycle of living paycheck to paycheck and never being able to save a dime. This is a popular economic topic in America because of how real it is as well as how many people this cycle is affecting. On investopedia.com, “Which Income Class Are You”, it explains most
Minimum wage helpful or disastrous for Americans Did you know that millions of minimum wage workers cannot make enough money to be over or at the poverty line level and are actually a lot more below it instead? There have been many issues on the topic of increasing the minimum wage from ten to fifteen dollars because it can cause inexperienced workers having a tough time getting or looking for jobs, families not being able to live on the minimum wage the way it stands now, and businesses not being able to create more jobs to hire more workers. For instance, an author named David Neumark believes that the effects of the minimum wage have a major issue that increasing minimum wage can reduce the numbers of jobs and pretty much screw over workers
Social inequality happened as often as breathing in the 1930’s and even still some in today's society. Economic inequality and tolerance back in the 1930’s compared to today's world is very different, now it doesn’t happen as often as it did. The way the world has evolved compared to then and now is substantial and reflects how we as people are becoming better. I will show you the way life has changed from how people get treated and the economic system has changed. In the book it was well known that a certain family in the town that got treated very poorly because of how they got their income and how much they got from it compared to every other person in town.
This is true because the people who were already poor, who were working for the money so they could afford things like homes, food, water, and clothing, were staying poor, because their pay was so low that at the rate of them using their money for necessities, they were earning barely enough to afford them. Whereas the people who were already rich, merely used their money to get even more money, and it would grow exponentially. They could have bought stocks or decided to invest in companies, but either way, they would have the money to do it, whereas the poor people would barely have the money to even live. Everything about these unfair conditions of working was true in both countries, in Russia and
Unfortunately, this is one of the worst results of the industrial revolution, but also a good turning point in history. Company owners needed to find employees to work for them for cheap and with hard working skills. The factory owners did not provide safe environments for their workers and often overworked them to the point of utter exhaustion (History.com). "The overworking does not apply to children only; the adults are also overworked. The increased speed given to machinery within the last thirty years, has, in very many instances, doubled the labour of both" states the author John Fielden, in his book called "The Curse of the Factory System."
They should be paid a large sum of money, but they shouldn’t be paid as much as they do now. This is because there are so many Americans that have put themselves through colleges and universities in order to achieve a high-paying and impactful job, and they still don’t get paid as much in one year, as professional athlete gets in one game, the professional sports businesses are way too money-oriented, and there are so many struggling Americans living on the edge of life that would do anything for even a small amount of money.
Ed. Amy Hackney Blackwell and Elizabeth Manor.)(p223-225). Once the farmers with other skills did find work they suffered from very low wages for their huge families that some of them had. Like in the book Life During the Dust Bowl on person states that when she was younger she can remember eating string beans and corn almost all the time, also her father did find a job beyond farming but only paid him $24 a month which is to feed himself, her mother and the eight other children.(Yancey)(pg.27). Another way the farmers suffered from the extreme poverty was that the price for the wheat dropped from $1.60 to less than twenty-five cents a bushel.(Yancey)(pg.22).
When people hear about if college athletes should get paid they would say no because they think the athletes would get paid millions of dollars. It is not like that, college athletes would not be paid that high they would only need to be paid so they can live a decent life. They have to balance their lives with school and their sports. College athletes should get paid because The NCCA is billion dollar business and the athletes don’t get any money, athletes spend more hours working for the sport than the average American, it helps athletes manage their money. The NCAA is a hundred million dollar company, they make a lot of money through TV views, jersey sales, ticket and, sales.
It is largely remembered for its badly made science, the obvious race and class biases of many of its leading people. It was a cruel program of segregation and sterilization of thousands of people who were judged to have substandard genes. The New Deal helped to build the relationship between the government and the American citizens by creating a relationship with the people in which they came to depend more on the government than they did. Before the new deal the government paid no attention to the citizen problems. “The hundred days also brought the government into providing relief to those in need” (Foner 814).After the new deal everything changed, the government were more involved in what they people thought, and also believed.
Because a lot of natives fail to get an education they still suffer economically. In particular, their employment rates are far below those of whites. “Typically, Tribal and Federal governments are the largest employers on the reservations. Many households are overcrowded and earn only social security, disability or veteran 's income” (Aid). The lack of jobs and economic opportunity mean that, depending on the reservation, a lot of adults on reservations are unemployed.
The middle class is living uncomfortably and some are barely making it. The middle class is working harder than ever, but yet they are not getting anywhere. The top 1 percent should stop saving and they are not generating enough for the economy, we need spending in order for the economy to run smoothly. A stable economy is a strong middle class and I totally agree with Robert Reich because the middle class actually spends their money! 70% consumer spending is from the middle class according to Reich.
