He goes on to say in the second misperception, “college graduates are finding it harder to get good jobs with liberal arts degrees”, but “the recession has no differentiated among major fields of study in its impact” (192). Ungar believes students who focus on one particular field of study do not learn necessities such as writing and literary texts, and this puts them at a disadvantage when compared to a liberal arts graduate. While long-standing jobs, such as doctors and lawyers, will not become extinct soon, liberal arts graduates have a better chance of employment in most areas. 95% of employers surveyed would give hiring preference to graduates with skills to contribute in the workplace. 74% would recommend a liberal arts education to a young person they know today, so they will be prepared for success in today’s global economy.
Another reason people like to defend Wal-Mart is because they have better prices than most everyone else which is easier on peoples wallets. Wal-Mart has become such a household name that most people will shop there without checking out other business when they realistically could be spending a little extra pocket change and helping their economy and help control this giant corporation. The savings people get are on account of cheap foreign goods that aren’t as good as American goods and people don’t realize it because they just remember the good deals. In my opinion there aren’t any other reasons to defend
He talks about how resources are limited and the more people there are in this world, the more the competion there will be. His conclusion is that the United States, by aiding povish countries, are just barely keeping them alive enough to reproduce more that results in more people living a miserable existence. Those who can not provide should not reproduce which will result in the death of the excess people that eventually leads to equilibrium because their will be more to offer. Montgomery also peeks some interest in his morbid, yet sadly logical theory, by bringing to the attention of his readers how it will improve the economy. The over population problem also correlates with unemployment.
Another reason why Conservatives won is that in there manifesto they promised to stabilise the cost of living which would close the gap between rich and poor and double everyone’s standard of living. This was helped by Labour being identified with the working class rather than the nation as a whole. This was a problem as 40% of manual workers now considered themselves middle class so the Labour policies for the unemployed and working class no longer appealed to them, instead they believed that the Conservative party was going to help them to continue to move up the social ladder. A third reason that the
Kartic 1 Jehrame Kartic John Reimringer EngC1101-94 Feb 15, 2013 The Right Decision "Even for Cashiers, College Pays Off", published in 2011 in the New York Times, David Leonhardt, Pulitzer Prize winner for Commentary, argues against the case that college is not for the masses. Aside from his passionate belief that the need for college is crucial, he explains the misleading claims about the prices of tuition and follows with showing that the benefits of a degree are substantial even when a degree is not essential within that field because, aside from all else, colleges teach general skills. As he examines the anti-college argument bit by bit, Leonhardt rapidly lays out all the facts and supports them with astonishing statistics. "Three decades ago, full-time workers with a bachelor's degree made 40 percent more than those with only a high school diploma. Last year, the gap reached 83
Although advertisements seem as a positive addition to countries in need of a stable economy, it is a enormous impact on people’s lives. (Doc. E) Without it, people wouldn’t know the latest fashion style, the best car, or the new developed drink and it would keep people in a boring routine of buying the same products and not exploring. Even though advertisements try to influence people’s decisions, it is up to the people as consumers to make moral
We don't succeed when a few at the top do well while everyone else struggles to get by -- we're better off when everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules. When Bill Clinton was president, he believed that if America invested in the skills and ideas of its people, good jobs and businesses would follow. His economic plan asked the wealthiest Americans to pay a little more so we could reduce our deficit and still invest in job training and education, research and technology, better health care and a dignified retirement. And what happened? By the end of his second term, our economy created 23 million new jobs.
("Store Wars," n.d., Big store, business practices section, para. 1).The low prices may be great for the economy, but that's about all walmart is doing for America. For people who work at Walmart, in order to make ends meet, they usually have to work at two different jobs. Their significant other usually has to work, too. Not enough money and too much stress lowers the quality of life that people have, and their standards of living also drop, as they are forced to get by with cheap, low-quality items (Nickels, McHugh & McHugh, 2010).
A management work considers more of a doing paper work whereas labor work needs hand skills. I believe qualified workers worth going to college because they make more money in less period of time. While I was reading the Kid Pharaoh’s interview, I came to know that he doesn’t support education at all. He thinks it’s not
Recession is two consecutive quarters of negative economy growth. During recession, there is low level of demand because people don’t have much money to spend. So they look for cheaper products that they can afford. At this time businesses confidence gets low as people aren’t demanding for their products so they would have to cut out their productions as they don’t need to make as much products. At this time they would need to provide cheaper price to attract their consumers and to increase the demand.
