However, it took longer time to go to work since he just needed 40 minutes to drive to work but he needed more or less two hours to go to work by Caltrain. He complained about the inconvenience with his colleagues and he found that his colleagues also had the same problems. Some of his colleagues chose to pool car, which means people drive to work with other strangers who work nearby and share the gas price. And they said that as gas prices increased, their wages were not increased as fast as gas prices. As a result, the increasing of gas prices bring inconvenience to people’s lives.
Many parents do not have the time to escort their children everywhere they need to go. They have jobs and activities of their own to attend. At the age of sixteen, students get involved in more after school activities and with a license, they can drive themselves back and forth places without being an inconvenience to their parents. There is no reason to raise the minimum driving age, but there are plenty of reasons not to. No matter how old the kids getting licenses are, there will be car accidents ending in death.
Welfare Reforms The dream of most women is to have the traditional family, which includes a husband and their children. There are more single mothers in this day and age that face more challenges on the way to achieving the American Dream. They find it hard to provide financially even working a full-time job because the pay is normally minimum wage and most still rely on public assistance to make ends meet. Some single mothers lack education and work experience, which prevents them from obtaining a decent paying job. Budget cuts to welfare programs are making it that much harder for the single mother to provide the necessities for their children because these supplemental programs are necessary to the day to day workings of a family.
As shown in Source E, the people with more income are for getting rid of the penny, while the more poor people are against the abolishment. This is probably because the more upper class people do not have to pay for simple things with the pennies they find on the streets. Poorer people who make less than $25,000 a year obviously don’t have good jobs, probably not full coverage health insurance, and a lot of the time, have more children to take care of. Due to the insurance they have, their prescriptions and doctor co pays are very expensive. Penny pinching may be these deprived people’s only option in paying bills.
If Obama raises minimum wage it could put small businesses in an unacceptable bind that helps no one. If Obama raises the minimum wage to $9.00, its bad enough that small business struggle with the $7.25 because they try to hire as many people, usually
The amount of lives that can be saved by raising the driving age to 18 would be very large. Teens are just not responsible enough to have this responsibility. “ There is evidence to suggest that the part of the brain that assesses risk and controls impulsive behavior is not fully developed until the age 25 (23 for females), providing a physical reason why restrictions such as night curfews and limiting peer passengers is so important”. ( Professor Cass) One of the leading causes of teenage accidents is inexperience. Teenage drivers don’t have the experience of driving a car.
Throughout history men are seen as the “strong/tough ones”; the belief is that they should be paid more than women in order to support their families (Loney, 2005). Women often take time off from work to raise their children, which can interfere with their career path. Also, married women with children are more likely to leave their jobs, rather than women who are single and/or without
My mother told me that she hates riding with me because I drive too aggressively. For example, if I am driving home from school and someone passes me even though I am going over the speed limit, I have to pass them; I have to be in the front of the pack of cars. This does not seem like road rage, but it is, I get upset if someone passes me. Also, if I am heading down 395, whether I am going the speed limit or not, and someone decides to cut in front of me when I am less than a hundred yards from them I do not instantly slam on my brakes. I will usually keep going my speed and tailgate that person until they decide to speed up or pull off the road and let me by, if they do neither of the two, I
Another reason why is people who leave home will not be able to work full time so will not be able to get somewhere to live or be able to buy food and clothes. A lot of people will want to leave school and start earning money because they have enough GCSE’s to get a good job. Also will schools be able to discipline 17/18 year olds who can drive and get married etc, for example in class a teacher would feel a tad silly and weird telling a 18 year old to get outside and think twice before chewing
Good afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen and my fellow debaters. Today I am here to address an important issue. Should 18 years be forced to do a mandatory of 30 hours of community service. There are numerous reasons why I can easily say that teens should not be forced to do a mandatory 30 hours of community service. 18 year olds are at crux of their growth, they have little to no time and are handling copious amounts of stress, to force them to work around a issue they do care about, is just wrong in my opinion.
