In order to be more persuasive, Will needs to clearly state his position regarding the argument, as well as using more emotional appeal.
In his chapter “The working life of a waitress” describing the experiences of his mother and six other waitresses, Rose (2004) argues that the position of a waitress requires a larger spectrum of intellectual abilities than one would perceive (p.2). Rose’s argumentation is based on four criteria; the ability to understand and navigate through a structured environment (p.6); the necessity of having a good memory to recollect routines, menu items and customer’s requests (p.10); the cognitive abilities required to perform effectively, in order to satisfy every customer (p.13); and the social and emotional skills needed to successfully please each customer accordingly (p.19).

When I was sixteen, one of my middle school friends named Jessica was a shift leader at dunkin she wanted me to work with her for the summer to have some extra money. It seemed like a lot of fun for the first week or so, but it turned out to be the worst job of my life. My job was the front cash register.

Almost every high school and college student is told to do what they love when they are older because they will be happier. Not all of that is true. If you do what you love, you might be happy while at work, but if you aren’t getting paid enough, then you may not be the happiest. You may not have nice clothes, a nice house, or any healthy food.
