Dunphy Sean Dunphy Dr. McDonald ENG102 30 March 2015 Minimum Wage As one grows up they gain certain rights, privileges, and responsibilities. One of the most important privileges that are gained when you turn eighteen is the right to vote. I was able to vote for the first time in the latest election. One of the laws that I was unsure how to vote for was the raising of the minimum wage. As a full time student and boyfriend, a part-time job paying minimum wage doesn’t produce much income. A higher wage would seem to help me financially, but then when I looked at the perspective of my community as a whole, my view started to change. An increase on a single wage like mine would have a very miniscule effect on our economy, but if a high percentage of wages were to increase, the economy would be in for a shock. Those individuals should get educated to see how it would actually hurt our economy. A higher minimum wage would result in people losing jobs, it would hurt the lower skilled workers, and it would cause uncertainty for many businesses. If the minimum wage were to go up, there would be job losses. People in a business that were making less than minimum wage would be at risk of losing their jobs.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
