According to a professor named Robert B. Rich “$10.10 isn’t enough to lift all workers and their families out of poverty. Most low-wage workers aren’t young teenagers; they’re major breadwinners for their families, and many are women. And they and their families need a higher minimum wage.” Robert is saying that the minimum wage should be increased because for most people in a family that earns all of the money to support their family will need to get out of poverty. Therefore raising the minimum wage would be benefit.
College athletes receiving payment for play would be very unfair to non-athlete students. The college athletes already receive scholarships paying for everything in their college experience. They do not need to receive payment for play on top of that. These kids are not professional athletes, so they shouldn’t be paid like one. Also, the schools with the most revenue would buy out all of the good players and this would make the league not as competitive.
To prove this statement I once bought a laptop skin online that a celebrity was using and when the product arrived it was a giant sticker for the front of my laptop. Credibility is a huge thing for producers because to know that when they buy their product and it works then the consumer is willing to buy this product again or even tell their friends about it. Zendaya was endorsing Proactiv X-Out and my friend bought it thinking it would work and it did nothing and now she doesn’t buy anything from Zendaya or Proactiv. Credibility hurts both the producers of a product and the celebrity endorsing
She also says that you can not put a price on talent. Many retired athletes have chronic health problems because of how much they work they bodies. Why athletes get the salaries they have is because it is should carry them past the five to fifteen years they are able to play. The amount that athletes get paid are outrageous. They make millions and even a hundred million dollars to play a sport.
The lack of enforcement by the cops lead to according to Kyving,”mounting violence, lawlessness, and disobedience led to calls for the amendment's repeal” (2). The commissioner disobeying the laws created problem for all because the men that gatsby and Rothstein harmed while the police knew where and when they were at places. The men who gave passes some people which spiked the drinking surge more than before the act. The newly illegal alcohol market has to part: the makers and the buyers. The buyers are always forgotten in this market such as Tom and Daisy.
Since the minimum wage isn’t being raised, inflation has “cut the purchasing power of a minimum-wage worker’s paycheck by twenty percent” (Krugman 6). Inflation is stopping people from moving up in society because it is forcing minimum-wage workers to work multiple jobs in order to make ends meet. People have to live from pay check to pay check in order to pay bills and by enough groceries for the week. For example, Rebecca is working a forty hour work week earning $7.25 an hour. Before taxes she only makes $290.
I do agree that there would be some problems with people only going to college because it is free. We do have that problem now with some parents paying the children’s full tuition, but the student does not take college seriously. She also says that
As it has already been discussed, human organs transplantation can help in saving limitless lives. Nevertheless, the demand of people in need does not meet the organs supplied. This tough reality that people encounter leads to the emergence of illegitimate transactions completed in the dark, also known as the black market trafficking. Conforming to Berman, “Every year hundreds of people from wealthy countries, including the US and Israel, travel to poorer, less legal-y scrupulous countries to acquire kidneys from poorer people”(Selling organs should be legal). Hence, this situation is not in favor of societies because only the rich can benefit from it.
Student athletes should not be paid for their athletic performance because it would result in the loss of amateur sports. The loss of money in schools and that most student athletes already have financial aid. Paying athletes will result in the loss in amature sports, if they want to get paid like pros they should have to live part of the pro life. Such as the fear of being cut for poor performance, the ability to be traded or being taxed from the money they make. College is also for learning and earning a degree not for playing sports and being paid, that is why professional sports are in place.
Many will say that student-athletes are not to be paid as they are receiving a free education through scholarships. Therefore, they are already getting paid. On the other hand, many believe that colleges make enough money to give the students more than a “free” education. They believe the students should be paid,
The problem is the lawsuits that are holding the NCAA back from doing so and they also make arguments of paying college athletes pointless. Most people agree that if college athletes did get paid it wouldn’t be a total shock but it is just not that easy. These kids should just go through college like the alumni did and it will all payoff when they get their first major job paycheck. The point of college is to get you ready for the real world and if college athletes get paid while in college it totally defeats the purpose of college. Previous alumni didn’t get paid to play sports at their college so what makes the new athletes special.
