LOW WAGES

             Wages are the fundamental of life. Wages are important to employees to help their lives and live in good condition of life. Wages have many benefits, such as paying rent, buying food, and paying for school tuition. In Richmond, VA, wages are low, and people cannot survive because of low wages. Because wages are low in Richmond, people are unemployed and those who are employed do not make enough to survive. According to the Department of Numbers (2019), unemployment in Richmond is 2.8%. Higher wages could solve many problems in the state, so the state should solve this problem because low wages have many consequences on people. The state of Virginia should raise the minimum wage because it would reduce poverty, decrease evictions, and lower rates of the homeless.

Poverty is a bad state and anyone who is living in poverty is constantly living in struggle and stress. Poverty means hunger, lack of shelter, and not having a good job. Poverty makes life harder and worse. Poor people do not have enough money to buy some food or buy toys for the kids. In Richmond, there are some people who live in a bad house because they do not have money to have a good house or live in a good community. Those who live in poor house, usually live in poor communities as well that are dangerous. Desmond (2016) states that “today, the majority of poor renting families in America spend over half of their income on housing, and at least one in four dedicates over 70 presents to paying the rent and keeping the lights on” (p. 4). This shows that low wages lead to poverty, so poor people spend over half of their income on housing thus making their lives harder. Poor people will not have enough money to survive from poverty. Because of low wages, children will not go to a good school to study, and parents will not have a good job to support their family and themselves. Minimum wages are not rising in Richmond, so that will create many other problems for people. According to Sun Gazette (2019), quoting National Association of Realtors, “unfortunately, income and wages are not rising as fast and will make it difficult to buy once rates rise” (para. 5). That shows that the state of Virginia is not raising the income for people, and that will keep poor people in bad condition.

Eviction is the main issue in Richmond, VA. Eviction means a person is thrown away from their house or building for not paying the rent. There is an issue in Richmond that leads to eviction, which is low wages. The rent in Richmond is increasing, and wages are low, so people do not have money to pay their rent. Robinson (2019) states that “Richmond has had the second-highest eviction rate in the country, according to a Princeton University Eviction Lab analysis published in The New York Times last year” (para. 5). That represents Richmond, which is a small city, has the highest rate of eviction in the country. In addition, low wages lead to evictions because people do not have money to pay the rent. Many landlords evict people because they do not pay the rent, so they evict them from the house. The issue of evictions is not from the landlord, but it is from the government. That means the government controls the wages, and they can decrease the rate of evictions in Richmond by raising the minimum wage. Furthermore, it is not the landlord’s problem when they evict someone that does not pay the rent. Also, the landlords want to get money from the tenants and not solving the tenant’s issues with wages. That is the consequence of low wages, which leads to eviction.

Being homeless is one of the biggest problems that the United States is facing internally. Homelessness manes that the person does not have shelter, food, and/or education. Homelessness does not depend just on men but also depends on women, children, and older people too. In addition, homeless people live on the sidewalk or on a bench on the street, and their condition is scary. They cannot take care of themselves and their children usually end up homeless with them when they are evicted. The sight of homeless people is scary and sad. Also, homeless people do not have family or friends because their lives become harder especially since they have no house and are living alone. Homeless people tend to use drugs such as heroin and marijuana because they feel that their life is almost done and that these drugs will make them feel better temporarily. Some homeless people have diseases and health problems, and it is easy to spread these diseases. Furthermore, homeless people are not supported by the government or anyone else. According to Homeward (2019), there are some factors that lead to homelessness such as high housing costs. This shows that low wages, and a higher cost of housing leads to homelessness, so low wages will not help poor people to pay their rent, and it is easy to evict them. It is the government’s responsibility to support homeless people because they do not have anyone to support their lives.

Many Economists think that higher wages could lead to problems. Carballo (2018) states that “Economists differ on how raising the minimum wage would impact the economy” (para. 9). It could be true that higher wages could impact the economy and effect on the consumer, but raising wages by percentages in each year will help the bad condition of poor people because “some would benefit by having larger paychecks, poverty rates would likely go down” (Carballo, 2018, para. 10). That means the higher minimum wages could help to reduce poverty rates in the country and will help the country to have many employees. States that raised the minimum wages for employees can see the result of employment growth (Carballo, 2018). It is so important to know that raising wages could have many benefits not only to the country but also to the poor people. The state of Virginia should raise wages to help the lives of the poor. Furthermore, poverty rates and homelessness rates will decrease over the years. The way that the country should raise the minimum wages by percentages in each year will not affect the economy, and they will get many benefits from raising wages in the country. In addition, employees will be in every ministry, and all people have jobs to help their lives and their families. Raising minimum wages will raise employment rates and the economy of the country will also rise benefiting the country.

In conclusion, raising minimum wages will help both the country and the poor people. In addition, raising minimum wages could reduce poverty and homelessness rates and increase the rates of the employees and the economy. The state of Virginia should solve the issue of low wages because it is lead to poverty, eviction, and homelessness. Having a low minimum wage is extremely concerning because the number of homeless people is increasing. Since housing costs are rising while the minimum wage is stable, more people will fall into poverty increasing the amounts of homeless people and decreasing the employment rates.

SOCIAL MEDIA

The article “‘Who Shared It?’: How Americans Decide What News to Trust on Social Media” by the American Press Institute explains how people in the United States trust the news on social media. In addition, the article also illustrates people’s reaction when they see the news on social media, so American Press Institute did a study to show how people trust the news on social media and what factors could affect the news. This study explains that Americans focus on who shares and who creates this news on social media. The second source, “Who can you trust on Social Media” by Jenn Herman explains what people can do when they see the news on social media and how the news could affect the credibility of a business or a brand. Furthermore, in the second source Herman explains that news does not necessarily mean it’s true. When it is published by publishers, trusting the news is more important to the businesses than it is to individuals. Both the articles talk about how news is interpreted by people through the use of social media and trusted publishers.

In this study “Who Shared It? How Americans Decide What News to Trust on Social Media” the author explains that people on social media often see that the news is published from someone they think is a credible and trusted person, so they decide to share this news and even follow the person who published the news. The sharer is a big factor that could affect the news on social media because people will share the news from a trusting person. The sharer’s credibility can change readers’ opinions about the news or the reporting source. Also, many people in the United States get their news from social media rather than newspaper or other sources. The study also shows statistics and data about how people trust or do not trust the news on social media with explanations to make the readers understand this reading. This study shows how social media affects the new generation and how the social media plays a big part in their lives. The American Press Institute states that: “The study demonstrates that when people see a post from a trusted person rather that untrusted person, they feel more likely to recommend the news source to friends, follow the source on social media, and sign up for new alerts from the source” (p.21). Furthermore, the data and results of the study show that people who were exposed to news from people that they trusted had higher results in terms of stating correct facts, entertainment, and whether the information was easy to read and find. The two sources however were exactly alike, but it was given to people in a different format rather than the original format (AP).

The American Press Institution is a non-profit educational organization that aims on conducting research about how people trust the news. “Who Shared It?’: How Americans Decide What News to Trust on Social Media,” was published on March 20, 2017. API is an educational nonadvocacy nonprofit organization affiliated with the Newspaper Association of America. It aims to help the news media—especially local publishers and newspaper media—advance in the digital age. The intended audience of their organization is the newer generation that is into reading news from the social media rather from the radio or news channel. The study method was to give people an article about the same news through a known influencer (Oprah), however the audience that was given the article did not all trust in Oprah. Some did and some did not trust much in her, therefore their results about whether the people trusted the news or not was surprising. This background influences the message because the American Press Institute did this study and came up with statistics, charts and graphs based on the data they have collected.

In the source “Who Shared It?’: How Americans Decide What News to Trust on Social Media”, the website article demonstrates a study they conducted through the use of charts and examples. They want their audience to understand their message about the study by including evidence. Also, they used many charts to prove their study. There are percentages to help illustrate the data to make it easier on the readers. The source is a long to read it because it is ten pages long of one specific study. There are many topics in this passage and in each passage is repeating some of the information.

On the other hand, the source, “Who can you trust on Social Media” explains that many people do not have to wait for the news to be declared fake or true due to the ease and use of social media; reading and knowing the news is much easier than it has ever been. With the use of social media, the news has become harder to trust as anyone can post news to their page and popularize any major or minor news. Also, many social media applications such as Facebook state new things about the news on Facebook. Facebook is trying to reduce the fake news. The author states, “remember that as business or brand, what you share is a reflection of your brand” (J. Herman, 2018). It means that news you shared could affect your business or your brand, so that it may cause one to lose their brand because many people do not trust them. Also, it is important to have the credibility with your audience or customers.

The source is a Blog. It was published in the United States on January 24, 2018. Jenn Herman is the author of the source. Jenn Herman was working in customer services, corporate world, and in the government contract industry in both land system and aerospace sectors. “She brings knowledge and awareness to all of her marketing tactics and training to ensure her clients see success with their online marketing efforts. Since starting Jenn’s Trends in 2013, she has become a globally recognized expert on Instagram marketing and the forefront blogger on Instagram” (J, Herman, 2018). Jenn’s blog has won the prestigious award of being a Top 10 Social Media Blog three years in a row: 2014, 2015, and 2016. The intended audience was the businesspeople to fix their problems with marketing and how can they face the news. The background stuff influences the message because Jenn has experience with business and how she can face the fake news about the business and the brand.

There are many strengths in this source and the author includes great examples to support her claim. The author does a good job in explaining her point through the use of logical facts and ideas as well as ethical opinions. Furthermore, Herman provides enough statistics and examples to make her argument reliable and strengthen her point. The author also uses strong and ethical reasonings to back up her claim. Each of the main points she talks about all relate to her main claim with good reasonings. The weakness of this source is that it is written in an informal style. The author talks a lot about her personal opinions, includes an emoji, and censor out the word shit. In addition, the author also repeats the same idea about checking the news on social media a couple of times in the blog. Her ideas are repetitive; hence she does not have a lot of sub claims to prove her point. Her sub claims are limited and are not enough to argue and change one’s perspective. The last weakness of the source is that it is a blog and is not the best source to use when doing a synthesis or a paper, as anyone can write a blog to talk about their life and viewpoints.

Both sources are similar in their main idea. Both sources illustrate that people are quick to believe the news. In addition, both sources are similar because they have statistics and examples that prove their points. The two sources are also different in many ways. The first source talks about people’s reactions when they see the news on social media and what factors could affect the credibility of news on social media such as the sharer. The second source talks about how people can check the news if the news is fake by checking this news. The two sources are also different in the format and style of the source. For example, the source, “Who Can You Trust on Social Media?” is a blog that focuses on “Jenn’s Trends” and her opinions and viewpoints about a specific topic she wishes to argue. In the other hand, the article, “Who Shared It? How Americans Decide What News to Trust on Social Media”, the article is written in a formal style and is published from a credible source, the American Press Institution. Furthermore, this article deals more with experimentation and analyzing people through the use of an experiment. Additionally, this article includes data in the forms of graphs and charts to better display the results they have got from the experiment.

The sharer is a big factor that could affect the news on social media because people will share the news from a trusting person. The sharer’s credibility can change readers’ opinions about the news or the reporting source. There also exist people who do not care about who shared it, but they wanted to get the important information. These folks do not really care about the credibility of the source as much as they care about the content that is being posted. Also, many people in the United States get their news from social media rather than newspaper or other sources.

In the study, “Who Shared It?: How Americans Decide What News to Trust on Social Media” by American Press Institute, the study shows statistics and data about how people trust or do not trust the news on social media with explanations to make the readers understand this reading. This study shows how social media affects the new generation and how the social media plays a big part in their lives. Many people might ask themselves, who creates the news? and who shares it? so that will help them trust or not trust the news. The American Press Institute states that: “The study demonstrates that when people see a post from a trusted person rather that untrusted person, they feel more likely to recommend the news source to friends, follow the source on social media, and sign up for new alerts from the source” (p.21).
