The Undocumented in the U.S. Illegal Immigration has become a nationwide epidemic in the U.S. with an estimated 11.8 million undocumented immigrants in 2007 and accounting for 3 percent of the population. (Hoefer 1) Over the years the debate over whether or not to allow illegal immigrants to live and work in the United States has become a lengthy struggle for some that are trying to obtain citizenship legally. As an industrialized nation, the U.S. depends on these immigrants to provide a work for hire service for cheap during economic turmoil. There are several advantages that stem from illegal immigration that should be pointed out.
The Life and Career of Inez Beverly Prosser In 1933 Cincinnati, Ohio, Inez Beverly Prosser was the first African American female to receive a doctorate degree in psychology. Inez overcame many obstacles to achieve her goals and she showed women of her time and of today that all things are possible. In a time where racial inequality was at its peak, Prosser enrolled and completed several degree programs. Inez did not have the ideal childhood, nor did she have the support of society in her academic endeavors, but she let nothing get in her way. Prosser’s life came to a tragic halt, leaving the world wondering what she could have accomplished had she lived longer.
In my opinion, I do believe the government is responsible for the people who can’t take care of themselves, but to an extent. I don’t think they’re doing a very good job about it, now. There should be a closer eye kept on the people who are on food stamps, or rely on WIC for help with their groceries. Laziness and lying contribute to a vast majority of the population on food stamps. And the truth is, most of the people filing for any type of governmental help are either to lazy, though capable, to work (because they know they can get free aid), or lie about things such as monthly income, or the number of family members they support, ect.

But in the same period… the earnings of America’s most highly paid CEOs rose by 4300 per cent.” (Bone 1) Amazing isn’t it that many people barely get by on their paychecks while other live lavishly. How do we close this gap of economic inequality? Marx believed it was necessary to seek refuge in communism. This did not turn out well for China or Russia who tried to apply this principle only to become a totalitarian government. Although people want to close the economic gap “only 2 percent chose the
Now for the people who see the glass half full and see minimum wage as something that should happen. They see that increasing minimum wage is a positive thing. Looking at the Internal Revenue Service it shows that 41% of United States payrolls are made up of the “working poor,” People who only work for minimum wage. Some of them people work for even less then minimum wage just to pay their bills. Paying rent, child care, and food and other bills that people have are expenses that people have to provide to have a normal life.
Thanks to Chimerica, US corporate profits in 2006 rose by the same proportion above their average share of GDP.” Basically the more China was willing to lend to the United States, the more Americans were willing to borrow. Chimerica, in other words, is the underlying cause of the surge in bank lending, bond issuance and new derivative contracts that Planet Finance witnessed after 2000. It was the underlying cause of the hedge fund population explosion. It was the underlying reason why the US mortgage market was so awash with cash in 2006 that you could get a 100 per cent mortgage with no income, no job or
12. It’s becoming hard to assign companies to one’s home country due to globalization. Most companies these days are world wide, with a possibility of having multiple hearths. This serves as a challenge because roughly 1/3 of global trade is within the multinational companies. For example, China generates more than 21% of U.S. economic output and employs 3/5s of all manufacture’s employees (about 1 million).
Maturity for College Entering adulthood can be stressful and begin early in one’s life. Within American Culture, attaining a college degree is the status quo of our nation’s individuals. Many college students like me have felt the pressure deciding what to do after high school. Some young adults get married, enter the arm forces, get into vocational schools, or like most go to college. Linda Lee, an editor and writer of the New York Times, writes an article to the Time’s newspaper, based on her book, Why Your Child May Not Have to Go to College Right Now- And May Not Ever Have to Go(2000).
In other words, “immigrants bring innovative ideas and entrepreneurial spirit to the U.S. economy.” (Griswold, 2002) Compared to the 1900s, Chinese immigration in the United States of America had transformed from 3% to almost 55% today. Chinese immigrants brought different set of skills and helped the nation built railroads which became one of the most valuable assets that America had used to build up the economy. According to US Patent and Trademark office, only 268,782 patents were signed by US origins compared to 274,033 of patents signed by immigrants in 2012 (PTMT, 2013).This strongly suggests that economic and technological improvements are brought up by the immigrants. “Twenty-five percent of engineering and technology companies started in the past decade were founded by immigrants” (Wadwha, 2007). Over the years, high percentage of Indian immigrants ruled the technological companies for they are highly talented in engineering and exceptionally smart in Math.
