This scandalous coinage, also known as the penny, is a lousy excuse for a currency and should be abandoned. The penny costs the American people precious time and money as they attempt to scour through their purse or wallet just for a 1 cent coin, which is having devastating effects on the economy. The obvious solution to this ordeal is removing the penny and rounding all prices to the nearest nickel. On the other side of the argument, people view this as an opportunity for businesses to charge extra for a product or service that you originally would of although, there is simply no hard defining evidence that this would even occur. With everything considered, the penny is a nuisance to society as a whole, we need to abolish it before it creates
The trend of deflation intensified. The reason that nobody warned America of deflation was due to false prosperity. The 1920’s were called “the Roaring Twenties”, while mainstream culture at this time supported that it was a time better than anytime before then there were many misconceptions with masses of people at this time (Facts). America was very dependent on production and 42% of people were impoverished. Poverty in 1920’s
Danny Schechter wrote Investigating the Nation’s Exploding Credit Squeeze, two years before the 2008 world crisis. It is said that only true crisis can lead to change, an explanation to why so many people ignored the signs. Everyone is a target to the credit industry, not only the poor or middle classes. In a consumption driven culture, it is impossible not to spend your money and get into debt. Products seem fairly cheap, companies are always suggesting that you are making “a great bargain”, “buy two and one free” and it seems that everything is always “on sale” (Schechter 357).
These ethical issues have led to them paying more than $92 million in the child sex abuse scandal. The school could have spent this money on the students, who would have benefited more instead of using it to pay the victims of a crime that never should have happened. “We hope this is another
There have been SNAP beneficiaries accused of cheating the system by receiving a greater benefit or exchanging SNAP benefits for cash. The highest payment accuracy that SNAP reached was at 96.19% in 2012 according to the USDA analysis. As we all know it is illegal to trade SNAP benefits for cash, but it still happens and attracts attention to many. Therefore, fraud and abuse in SNAP benefits will always be a political factor that has made Congress improve The Agriculture Act of 2014 SNAP program by reducing fraud which actually has happened because in 2014 fraud rates has been at its lowest. On the other hand, a major economical factor that has influenced the development of The Agriculture Act of 2014 SNAP program would be the implementation of slashing SNAP benefits which will have an affect many vulnerable citizens in the United States.
In his argument, “Forgive Student Loans? Worst Idea Ever” mentioned how the importance of college student loans should be paid off. Due to the amount of irresponsibility that may happen. Believing if students were not to pay student loans, they would waste an amount of money per year, an amount that will increase. Together, the two debates profound sufficient information, to catch their audience attention, but only one debate had the enough statistics to prove it’s point.
Child labor is something people in the United States might think of as awful, but for families in countries like China it is a way of life. Name brand companies, for example Nike, have their products made overseas often using children to do the work. The use of child labor in other countries for Nike brings up the debate on whether or not the United States should buy products that have been produced by children. The United States should not buy products manufactured with the use of child labor because of the unfair wages they get paid and bad working conditions. Some may argue that by putting children to work it is lowering the unemployment rates in countries, the morals of buying products produced by young teenagers is just flat out wrong.
Every year tax paying Americans spend a good amount of the money they make on taxes, what some of us do not know, however, is where that money is going. A good amount of our money is going towards the death penalty or capital punishment. However, the death penalty is not doing us any good considering the amount of money is spent on it per year. The death penalty should be illegal in the United States because it is proving to be ineffective and is very expensive.
Nike has only disclosed that information once, in a similar report released in 2001. At the time, some critics claim to challenge Nike for paying more than the minimum wage in each country it did business. It's been said that Nike has single-handedly lowered the human rights standards for the sole purpose of maximizing profits and Nike products have become synonymous with slave wages, forced overtime, and arbitrary abuse. One columnist said, "Nike represents not only
The way the tax rules are written, it would make it seem otherwise but based on research it has proven to be true. The government constantly taxes lower income people and yet allow people within a higher tax bracket to get write offs on their yearly income taxes without any penalties. It amazes me how I hear a lot of Congressman proclaim how much of a Christian they are but are not willing to part
According to the research, more than 1,300,000 immigrants live in America each year. Due to maximized population in America, if the immigration process was cut down strictly, some of the legal immigrants would not gain enough rights. The ones who do not treat illegal immigrants right, judges them “why can’t they just immigrate to other countries?” Many immigrants choose to immigrate to America because U.S. leads for better goals, and is better to live peacefully in the “American Dream” [Stephen Harper]. America is being affected the most with immigration issues.
700 million dollars isn 't worth the one cent piece, we could be using this money on charity or something else important. Though the penny has been part of the U.S for more than a hundred years, it should not be minted anymore because of the high production cost and other countries such as canada don 't even bother using them at all. People argue that the penny should stay because of its long time and history with the US, but what they don 't know is that the penny cost more than 2.4 cents per penny. “The US Mints budget in 2010 was 27.4 million dollars in penny production”(source 1). The time wasted counting money could add up to over 700 million dollars, this money could be spent on something important.
The penny is the Unites States’ lowest denomination coin, and there are some people who believe it should be abolished. On the other hand, there are people who advocate for the penny to keep its place in our economy and I couldn't agree more. The penny may be annoying, but it plays an important role in our economy, is popular among most people, and is an important piece of symbolism. Some say that the penny is completely useless, and though it may seem that way, the penny is probably way more important than many people realize.
Should the penny be banned? Is it really that much to American history? Or is just of waste of money to even have the penny? People think that the penny is foolish and money wasted on more money. Others think of it as a part of American history.

We should not get rid of the penny because Charities rely on them. They can collect the pennies.
