The following paragraphs will discuss the pros and cons surrounding both sides of this topic and the reasoning that births each one. Many politicians, business owners, and citizens hold fast to the belief that heightening the salary attached to minimum wage positions will yield negative benefits for our society. This opinion is supported by three vital view-points. The first can be found in the news article, “The Argument Against Raising Minimum Wage.” It expresses how the enlargement of this payment will take a toll on employment.

For millennials, the question that looms in their minds is “will I have a job when I’m done with college?” In the past decade, job security has been questionable for college students because America has been moving nearly every part of production they can to cheaper countries. But is this necessarily a bad thing? Barbara Ehrenreich, in her article “Your Local News--Dateline Delhi,” certainly thinks so. She believes outsourcing will be the ultimate demise of America’s greatness. Fareed Zakaria focuses on globalization in his book The Post-American World, and how outsourcing is just one small component of it.
Brief Summary Class in America, for lack of a better word, is a sore subject. “People in the United States do not like to talk about class.”(331) There are many myths that are taught today in America such as “The United States is fundamentally a classless society.”(333). Another myth would be “We are essentially a middle-class nation.”(333). A last example for myths includes “Everyone has an equal chance to succeed.” The largest if not only factor of class is wealth; how much income a family gets. To disprove the myths many more realities are listed.
Studies have shown that increasing minimum wage will not benefit Americas but will do harm to them. A statement made from a business owner says, “Many businesses cannot afford to pay their workers more money, and will be forced to close, reduce hiring, or lay off workers.” People with no work experience or even less skilled workers across America will be unemployed. This will result as a repeat in the United States history such as The Great Depression. With many citizens in America, the unemployment and crime rate has potential to increase
The Extinction of The American Dream Inequality is not dead the American dream is. a non-existing fantasy that desperate foreigners wish to accomplish, a dream so desired that those who chose to follow this journey are committed to leaving everything behind. As mention in the article “ 35 Mind-blowing Facts About Inequality” by Larry Schwartz, the middle class has gone extinct and the lower class has increased in the last decades, Mind-blowing facts about how the 1% dominates the American economy. In addition, the article “ The End of The American Dream” by Niall Ferguson, explains how upward mobility became an almost impossible challenge to accomplish. Lastly, the article “ L.A is the bad jobs capital of the U.S” by Harold Meyerson, goes into detail on how unequal wages are, and that it is impossible to live with a minimum wage job in Los Angeles when everything goes up except one 's salary.
(wealth inequality in America) Even Americans agree that the American money distribution is flawed and flawed greatly. If America isn’t able to keep a stable income classes, then how are we supposed to live a life where we can depend on our salaries. The income for minimum wage should be higher to be fairer to poor people and to fix the American money distribution system. If the upper class were paid less and the lower class were paid more that would help fix the money distribution system.

Instead, they are considered as intelligent and thoughtful partners who have emotions, spiritual values and feelings. This is to insinuate that the individuals together with the consumers have to work hand in hand in order the current socio-economic landscaped is shaped primarily by two great forces, that of globalization and technology. Consumers expect their organizations realize that indeed they operate within a society and therefore they should make these societies a better place to live in through coming up with better solutions for their lives.

The American dream is no longer about being a part of the rich. He redefines it as the opportunity to work for an honest and secure way of living. Challenging King’s argument is Karen Olsson March in the article, “Up Against Wal Mart”, where she illustrates how the average citizens who work in big corporations struggle to make a living due to the bad working conditions that those big corporations have. Olsson’s argument about the practices of megacorporations illustrates the weaknesses in King’s argument that states the American dream has changed but it is still possible. In particular Olsson’s analysis of low wages, inequality of wealth, and the inability to save for retirement reveal shortcomings in King’s essay.
