English 043 Professor Doreen Kiefer 12/15/13 “The Growing Need of Raising Minimum Wage” Have you ever wonder how many desperate unemployed American citizens there are in the United States seeking for jobs? Well there’re more than eleven million unemployed citizens desperately trying to make a living in this terrible recession. Not only is it affecting our economy but our businesses, and families as well. Even before the recession, our economy was rapidly shifting, with fewer and fewer middle class jobs and opportunities, with fewer and fewer middle class families, which has led to a low growing, low-wage workforce. As of the end of 2011, the United States needed to create roughly 10 million jobs to return to the pre-recession unemployment
The Challenges of Immigrating to the United States Immigrants are people who leave their hometown to permanently live in a foreign country, usually in pursuit of a better life. Many of these immigrants would move to the U.S. since it was a nation where people could find jobs and get land. The United States was a country where anyone could go to start a new life, however, a majority of these people were usually poor and had to endure a lot before having a normal life. These settlers had to live a hard and demanding life because countless numbers of them were poor families who were constantly struggling to get a living and finding a job.

Wars, political dissatisfaction, lack of liberty, weather conditions and hunger crises are just some of the reasons why people decide to immigrate to another country.

This attitude undermines our best interests.” After we graduate from university, a lot of people want to find a stable job and then fight for it.

To leave your country and go to another one is a big step to take. You are leaving behind family and friends that you have known for your whole life. There could be old people who die or new children born that you never get to see while you are gone. Your whole life you are used to having your friends that you are comfortable with and who understand you, but when you study in a new place, you do not have those friends to support you and you have to start over meeting new people. These problems can make it hard for international students to focus on their school when they are missing their friends and family.

Without diversity, the United States would not have the culture it does to this day. America needs immigration because immigrants help to develop new ideas, a diversity of culture, and they founded and helped to create the United States.
