Roughly more than “One-Fourth of children in Durham live in poverty, twenty-eight percent, caused by the recession of 2008”, and causes the state to tie with Kentucky and Texas for the spot of the 11th highest poverty rated state in the country. Before the economic downturn, the poverty rate of children in Durham was only three percent.

Yes, I do agree with the article because in my opinion the 60s ideal family was a historical anomaly. Even studying U.S. history on its own reveals the vast majority of families had two working parents. While only one might work outside the home, the other still worked to contribute to the family income or at least lessen the family expenses. I believe the decline in the traditional family is the result, at least in part, by a lack of earnings and increased levels of consumption. Many families need dual-incomes so they can provide for their family.
Which, indeed, has helped my work experience expand throughout the 3 years I have worked as secretary. Thankfully, I am still currently employed by Zavala Pools and I am working approximately 8 hours per week.

According to the Bureau of Legislative Research (2010), students who qualify as English Language Learners (those with limited English skills) earn the school an additional amount of money as well. For the 2008-09 school year, Arkansas districts spent $12.5 million on ELL students according to this same research conducted. According to Oleaga (2014), there were over fifty-five thousand undocumented children unaccompanied by a parent or guardian who were apprehended from late 2013 to mid-2014. This means that more children who have limited English skills are continuing to enter the country.
Questioning New Mexico’s addressing of the issue, I was pleased to find that the US Department of Education is trying to award contracts to two large common core testing (PARCC and Smarter Balanced) to develop computer-based assessments for students with cognitive
These workers comprise 59 percent of the U.S. workforce. There is a long history related to minimum wage, with laws dating back to the early 1900s. Since starting at 40 cents an hour, the hourly wage has been increased many times and ranges from about $7 per hour to $9 per hour in different states. In order to understand the minimum wage controversy you must review its long history, the argument of choosing unemployment/welfare benefits versus receiving a minimum wage, and information on the organizations fighting for an increase or decrease and the

Abusing the System Ronald Reagan states, “We should measure welfare’s success by how many people leave welfare, not by how many are added” (qtd. in BrainyQuotes). Welfare’s success today is not being measured by how many people are leaving welfare, but how many are needing assistance. The problem is that recipients of welfare are being added by the minute, and none of them are willing to leave the program because of the benefits it provides. The United States Constitution states the federal government should provide for the common defense and promote the general welfare, but the case is that many recipients are abusing the program (Couch np). Welfare abuse is increasing greatly.
Like the bike you bought after saving lawn-mowing money for a year, welfare reform was the prized trophy of the conservative governing philosophy. We believed that we’d found the vehicle of social mobility for poor Americans, once and for all. No one should live on taxpayer money without doing some work on their own, right? Everyone agrees, right? Wrong.
Welfare is designed to promote the basic physical and material well-being of people in need. The problem comes with the ease people have in cheating the system. It is far too easy for someone to get more support than they deserve and to become totally dependent on that support. The most effective solution for this is simple. Welfare should only be granted to citizens in specific categories such as students and the elderly, and should not be granted to those citizens that do not fall in to those categories due to the fact they should support themselves and their families.
