Firstly one of the biggest pros of universal healthcare is overall health of the Irish population As it stands many people can’t afford health care due to problems in our economy. Universal health care would ensure that people who are in need would be able to afford it. This would see many people getting the help they need and there would be an overall decrease in many people who are sick and therefore there would be an increase in productivity (Education Portal, 2014). In a family universal healthcare would ensure that there would be no financial stresses due to doctors’ bills. Each time a person goes to see a doctor they are paying at least 50 euro, so in turn big families which would consist of two adults or two or more children would be paying on average 250-300 euro on a doctor this money could be spent on other essential bills but because health is so important families are willing to go without and therefore facing serious financial debt due to medical costs (Education Portal, 2014).
The graphs show that throughout his term and during the New Deal, unemployment decreased every year. Because of the New Deal, more and more people every year were able to work. In Document 6, Ellen S. Woodward, the Assistant Administrator of the Works Progress Administration, describes the positive effects of the program.

This income would be okay for the average high school or college student, but not for a parent who maybe didn 't finish high school and has a family to take care of. This forces a minimum wage worker to rely on the government for things like food stamps, cash aid, housing assistance, and health care. “Increasing the minimum wage can be part of a comprehensive poverty-reduction package in developing countries but should not be the only, or even the main, tool to reduce poverty”. Minimum wage workers spend more of their income on things like housing and never get to a point to be financially comfortable causing more people to go into poverty. Studies show there
Through feminism, women have equal access to education and this will, in turn, foster a new generation of educated mothers. The level of maternal education plays a crucial role in the child’s health and academic performance. A recent study has found that scholastic outcome throughout different life stages of a child is positively linked to higher levels of maternal education (Harding et al, 2015). Furthermore, children born to mothers who had them after completing their studies were superior academically compared to children born to teen mothers and mothers who did not complete their studies. (“Mothers’ education”, 2014).

(AlterNet, 2015.) Due to the constraints the FMLA puts on so many working women, the economic equality between them and men is worsened. The specifics found in the law quietly but severely reduce the number of females qualified for unpaid leave and also leaves women working low-wage jobs at risk of being fired for merely taking one or two weeks off. Looking at women who have received a college education, it only seems to get worse for them as they head onto their career paths. A Bloomberg article explains that there is barely a wage gap for young women and men as recent college graduates, but as they get older, the gap widens- the first apparent gap is when they decide to have children (Suddath, 2015.)

The migrants that could get jobs, made pennies a day and had to give the money they earned back to the company owners to pay their rent and rent their tools for work. (History, 2018). Very few ever made enough money to go back home across the Atlantic. Today, immigrants who come to the U.S. and get jobs, tend to send their money back to the country where they came from because the American dollar is worth more in those countries. For example, here in El Paso, Texas there are many immigrants who come across the border to work and then return to Mexico with their wages to live a better and more comfortable
