Are pennies worth minting? Many people believe they’re a waste of money, but some people believe that they’re still worth minting. Pennies should not be minted for many reasons such as, the penny costs more money to make then the penny has in value.Another reason is that pennies are a severe waste in time such as people often pay with pennies as a practical joke, which means hard working employees often have to spend the time to count those pennies. The final reason is because the penny is losing the government money. All in all the penny should not be printed anymore because they cost more to make then they have value, then they are a waste of time as in counting the, and finally reason is that pennies are losing the government money.
Singer first points out that” if we can prevent a bad thing happen without sacrificing any comparable moral importance, we ought do it, and instead, we should not promote good thing.” He uses the example that many countries spend a lot on development and only provide limited supporting on poor countries which lack of food and medicine. Rich countries also need developing, and if they stop developing, they will not be able to earn money and not be rich anymore. Earning money is not easy, rich countries may also poor in the past. Best way to avoid suffering for a country is
Even more, since a 401(k) plan is not insured, it is possible to lose money based on the investments you have invested in. Risky investments are meant to either result in a large capital gain or a large capital loss; however, remaining conservative will not guarantee you payout you desire. Therefore, it is recommended to spread out your investments to minimize the possible capital losses (Advantages and Disadvantages to 401(k) Plans, (n.d.), p. 1). Consequently, employers are able to limit employees on how much they would like to contribute; with this intention, the employee would not be able to save as much as he or she wants
Immigration gives more opportunities for terrorists, drug dealers, and other criminals to enter the country, but to many Americans the most concerning is increased competition for job opportunities. Since immigrants are willing to work for little to nothing the pay wages and job opportunities are decreasing for hard working Americans. Another potential disadvantage on immigration is the cost that it places on government agencies and taxpayers. Immigration creates greater potential costs for Americans especially to support these types of immigrants -- old, poor, uneducated, and those with large families because each of them will need more care, like education or health care, which leads to more taxes on Americans. It also costs taxpayers more money to pay for the Department of Homeland Security (the DHS administers U.S.
Even though immigrants wanted to leave their home country to get better living conditions, they would have to find jobs, live without knowing how to speak the language and face immigration policies. Finding jobs as an immigrant was not that difficult but they would usually be forced to take the low paying jobs that were available. Living in the U.S. without knowing any English words was also difficult. Most immigrants would learn how to speak English since it was not easy to live there without a source of communication. Additionally, it made their daily lives more comfortable.
Hardships may not seem influential or beneficial, but that is exactly what they are. Although they’re not what you want to happen, they transform you into a better person. Hardships influence people’s lives by making the journey difficult and the rewards more desirable. In Enrique’s Journey, Enrique comes very close to America, but he is caught before arriving time after time. Instead of Enrique becoming discouraged about every setback, he was motivated more to cross the border.
The use of description and multiple plot lines demonstrates how true equality can actually be a detriment to society. Vonnegut makes it clear to the reader that if society continues in this pursuit of ultimate equality, people will lose the ability to compete and be unique, making them less individual. Society progresses today because of the skilled people who utilize their distinct talents to benefit society. If everyone has the same skills as everyone else, people are not able to cultivate their talents and in turn use them to better
putting the security of these civilians a risk, defeats the whole purpose of social security, which is why the privatization of Social Security would be foolish. A major risk of privatization is that the transition from a “pay as you go” system to a fully funded system would be very difficult to manage, for many reasons. Currently, the taxes paid by each generation of workers fund the retirement benefits of the previous generation of workers. While each generation of workers has been confident that its retirement would be financed by the next, this confidence is eroding (Pollard 1). These trends demonstrate that as workers and retirees are living longer lives, the costs per worker are increasing, which would only be more expensive and less
Pennies do have value, pennies are money and they do add up. On the other hand many people believe that the penny is a waste of money, they think that way because the penny costs more to make than it is worth. However, pennies play a vital role in our economy today because if it were not for pennies all prices would be rounded, and what company or business wants to round down on the money they receive. Also pennies are real handy when it comes to charity techniques, because many people do not find much significance in a penny so they give it up without second guessing if they were going to every need it, however to the charity even one penny is much needed because even with only a few from a few people can go a long way. The one cent piece
As mentioned earlier almost every immigrant has his/her reason why they cannot go back to their country. A lot of immigrants prefer to stay in their countries of origin if things are going well for them back home, but the truth is a lot of stressful situations going in the world. For example, war and natural disaster and these people have no choice rather than migrating to foreign countries, and every country has a responsibility to accept those people and to fulfill their basic needs. According to the article “The Trump administration may be deporting the good ones” , even if the new government claims that they are only deporting illegal immigrants with a criminal record, they are arresting unauthorized immigrants without criminal records. This is against human right, and it shows the new administration does not care about people who need protection from their government, war, and natural disaster.
