Peter Singer states that with a mere two hundred dollars an unhealthy two year old child could be raised into a healthy six year old. As a result, one can easily see how the targeted American donating money spent towards material goods could save world poverty. Among Singer's many scenarios buying a television set worth a thousand dollars is morally wrong because according to Singer you could have saved five children's lives for the equivalent of the television set. This concept makes sense and would be of great asset in solving world poverty. America, being under the United Nations standard for a country's gross donation would rise in the ranks to being a charitable country that donates the most which would spread American leadership qualities towards other nations.
David Porter 2/26/12 Business Management Professor Laidler China Blue Sweat shops have become an epidemic in China with the rapid population growth and not many opportunities many citizens settle for the lousy work. They work long tireless hours for little to no pay. The workers are not allowed breaks and are told they can only use the bathroom twice a shift. Also the food that is provided for them during the shift is deducted out of their pay. Factories with sweatshops provide the poorest of working conditions and show the workers no appreciation.
Outsourcing has created extra 7% unemployment and the government has to pay unemployment benefits to them every month. Instead of those people pay Government every month by tax; the government pays them. ❖ The wages paid in US goes many times down when the job is outsourced which clearly signifies that for the same labor workers are getting less paid which can be also stated as a form of exploitation. ❖ Companies are purposely going to nations that do not have stringent labor
When people think about recycling, usually two things come to mind: plastics and paper. But what about food? The average American wastes half a pound each day according to Jonathan Benson, the staff writer of naturalnews.com. That’s over 182 pounds for each person every year. The staggering amount of food waste makes one wonder, “Why so much?” The fact that America is a wasteful country is almost enough in itself, but that may also lead to the question, “Why are Americans such wasteful people?” America is a very fast-paced country as well as an over- populated one.
| Negative Effects of Illegal Immigration | | | | | English Composition I Thomas Buffington 04/21/2011 | Illegal immigration affects every citizen in the United States in a negative way by keeping our taxes high, stealing American jobs, and making our country unsafe. Although this country was founded by immigrants we are no longer trying to build a country. There are Americans here struggling to pay bills, find jobs and live free of danger. Government agencies have tried to crack down on these immigrants but have been unsuccessful in their efforts so far. The problem is continuing to get worse and will eventually cause a decline in the American way of life.
The high price of cheap foods was the main topic of the Americans’ conversation. Pollan said, “For 50 or 60 years, we have let ourselves believe that as long as we have money we will have food. This is a mistake. If we continue our offenses against the land and the labor by which we are fed, the food supply will decline, and we will have a problem far more complex than the failure of our paper economy. The government will bring forth no food by providing hundreds of billions of dollars to the agribusiness corporations.” He mentioned the phrase “paper economy”.
My political socialization paper My political socialization is influence by my mother and her occupation. She is a manufacturer who works to improve americans manufacturing communities by supporting small manufacturing companies. For every one dollar her coalition makes, eight dollars go to the federal treasurer. Her job has a very important role in government from n economic standpoint because it supports the innovation and productivity of the nation. If the government were to shrink, her business would be one to shut down even though they bring in so much money.
One of the other problems with the ARC’s ethical culture is the moral lack displayed by some of the organization’s leaders. An organization can only be as strong as the person who is leading it. How can you fault the volunteers for stealing ARC money when the organization’s leaders have been caught numerous times with their hands in the proverbial cookie jar? These leaders also benefited from a historical lack of transparency about how the ARC used its money. While the lack of transparency may not have been a problem in previous generations, America’s moral fiber has been weakened.
Tikora Alexander Wehler Wellness 8 November 2010 Food Inc. As one of the leading countries of processed foods, America struggles to provide the public with healthy whole foods due to the constant growth of population. Stated in the film Food Inc., “There are no seasons” in America because scientists have discovered ways to manipulate sources in order for citizens to have harvested foods all year round. The concerns of these methods include proper raising of the foods, price inflation and deflation, and health issues. American citizens have trusted certain regulators such as the FDA (Food Drug Administration) to regulate large suppliers which was explained in the film that their control and authority is limited due to most suppliers having so much power. The conflict for farmers to grow whole and natural food (for the pubic) is the time that is needed.
Benjamin Biddle CRJ 325 9/3/2013 The Wal-Mart film was quite disturbing. Has honestly made me re-think where exactly I do my shopping from now on. “The High Cost of Low Prices” is such a suitable title for this documentary for a number of reasons. We do not always see the repercussions of what these big businesses do to the communities they pretend to enrich and support. What Wal-Mart actually costs the community as opposed to what they give back is substantially off kilter.
