Urte Petraityte History 20 Andrew Frantz Section 31 3 February 2016 Delegate Paper #1 After the first world war economies started slowing down, soldiers came home and a new way of living had to be created to accommodate the post war changes in society. More people were living in the cities than ever before, the birth rate of the elite was rapidly declining while the lower class began to over populate. The government believed it was their duty to get involved which they did by creating the concept of Eugenics. Although people define eugenics in many different ways the main concepts include artificially selecting desired traits which then allows scientific improvement of the population by controlled breeding. Eugenics became a science used
The model is supposed to bring renewed prosperity to the United States but it brought more inequality and stripped safety net programs that actually helped most Americans. This lack of assistance means that struggling people are struggling even more and they have less money to spend and to put back into the economy. Since the creation of the Better Business Climate model, government spending on food stamps, unemployment insurance, and other social programs has been cut as

As the mandatory retirement age is increased, and there are fewer jobs as they require experience. On the other hand the people are leaving the jobs before the mandatory retirement age, and take early retirement. This is the result of unemployed benefit policy of government, and the pension plans. The labor participation rate is badly affected as shown a declining trend, which is due to early retirement o baby boomers and lack of willingness to do the job and high turnout ratio of the millennial”. In response to this the millennial argued that,” We won’t stick to the work until we recognize our capabilities and expertise, and get the desired job, with lucrative pay.
We live a much different time where the cost of living has increased and the job availability has decreased. “According to the Pew Study on the American Dream, social mobility is increasingly difficult, if not impossible; the study found those born at both the top and the bottom of the “income ladder” stay where they are from one generation to the next.” (Rooks) Meaning that if you are born into poverty it is more likely than not that you will stay there. This could help to reason why politicians have a hard time coming up with a good plan of action to help those in poverty. While Horatio Alger’s stories may have been a good inspiration for young and old during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s; he should not in reality be take seriously. In all his stories are fiction and are meant for entertainment purposes.
There comes a time in the development of a country that the need for every single kind of immigrant decreases. Today, our country is only experiencing a slightly positive economic effect due to immigration. With economic hardships facing almost every U.S. family, it's time to say "Enough is enough.". We can fix the economic imbalance immigration has caused our country with just a little bit of elementary addition and subtraction. We would have a much greater benefit from immigration if we selected immigrants based on skill and education.
After reading “Class Differences in Child-Rearing Are on the Rise” by Claire Cain Miller, I realized that there are many aspects that go into socio-economic status. One thing that initially stood out to me within the article is that, “Poorer parents have less time and fewer resources to invest in their children, which can leave children less prepared for school and work, which leads to lower earnings” (Miller). This stood out to me because children have no decision on what family they are born into, and the fact that if they are born into a less privileged family then they are more likely to grow up to be poorer due to the lack of preparation for school and work that they obtained during childhood. Even though there are multiple parenting approaches, most parents want the best for their children, even if they can not give their children the most financial stability. After reading “The Dangerous Consequences of Growing Inequality” by Chuck Collins and Felice Yeskel, I found that the article to be very interesting and informative.
This indicates that there is a constraint to food supply, limited access to health care, and poor family planning. Next, transitional, shows a decrease in death rates but birth rates remain high. Somalia, where our refugees originated from, is in stage two due to improvements in sanitation decreasing the risk of disease and increasing life expectancy, women are having smaller families, and families are investing in health, education, and savings. Then, industrial, is when birth rates fall and death rates are low due to increase in women’s status and education, access to contraception, urbanization, and improved economic conditions such as India. Lastly, industrial is when birth and death rates are low, stabilizing the population growth; Germany is in industrial because of their well-educated citizens, strong economics, and expanded employment opportunities for women.
Many conclusions of research have stated that raising the minimum wage will unlikely ease poverty, while some states say that raising the minimum wage will help lower-skilled workers out of poverty. The minimum wage of the United States is $7.25 per hour. Most people start out with a minimum wage and eventually move to higher paying jobs in the future. Those who have minimum wage careers are usually mothers of young children, less educated, or live outside urban areas. Minimum wage increases have lead people to poverty, having a negative impact on society; therefore minimum wages should not be increased.
Less Government Aid (welfare) to Low-Income People I am here today to speak on the issues that have intrigued me; low-income people in the United States receiving government aid. After the Great Depression in the 1930’s struggling families a federally funded program was formed called Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). This was created to help struggling families, though over the years the system has been heavily abused. Today about 35.4%(109,631,000) of Americans live in households that receive government assistance. This has negatively impacted America’s economic growth and from obtaining its full potential.
Document C Everything from businesses and life expectancy to crime rates increased Businesses opened in the DTES to help make money for the area to help people with less wealth Since people can get better salaries, the amount of low-income people have decreased Businesses are growing, welfare has increased by 13%, and life expectancies significantly increased People in the DTES who have low incomes can state that crimes have increased, housing has become more expensive, and the population is increasing, therefore people with low incomes lose the chance to buy affordable properties Document D Rent rates and hotel pricing need to be reasonable for lower class citizens so that they can have a proper living state. The number of hotels providing cheaper prices decreased over the years because the number higher class citizens and businesses have increased and tourism rates are
The adult population might also be dwindling for a variety of reasons like increased migration to neighboring cities or increasing mortality rate. In fact, the reduced adult population might be the cause of the decrease birth rate. Consequently, without numbers that back the committee 's conclusion of the adult population increase, the argument falls apart. A census should be performed and juxtaposed with the previous known data about the adult population in Calatrava. If there is a significant decline in the adult population, it would not be justified to allocate additional funds to the adult population.
A stable and strong middle class is important to any society, but particularly Democratic countries, since the majority of the voter base is made up of the educated middle classes. The fortunes of the middle class are tied to economic policy and the current market system, however effecting a change in economics, and therefore the middle class through policy, is a very complex process, often taking years to be fully realized. It is not simply a question of passing a new policy bill and having a change overnight. This is even truer today in an era of mass globalization where national markets are tied together by the American dollar, and the fortunes of one affects the fortunes of all, to a greater or lesser degree. Therefore to examine the policy
