Low Standards of living

We need to make America a better place to live.

Dear Future President,

Congratulations on winning the presidential election. Now that you have chosen to make America a better place, now is the time to fix some of the problems Americans are facing day to day. Unemployment is hurting many families across the US. The unemployment rate is rising gradually and it needs to go the other way. That being said, every day Americans work so hard, get minimum wage, then in some cases, eventually get laid off.

I have had this type of experience in my family. My dad just got laid-off last May due to reconstruction and the day I found out, I was devastated. This type of thing is happening all over the country and it needs to stop. This isn’t good for him because he has applied to many, many jobs and he hasn’t even had an interview.

Along with unemployment, low income can go with a low standard of living. My grandfather had a very difficult job, and he got less than minimum wage for all of his work. People need to get paid along with the amount of work they do.

That being said, a lot of famous people who sit around all day make a lot of money by the minute just because people want to buy their songs (and a lot of them are not very appropriate anyway,) and people who work really hard and have low quality jobs like a water meter reader, who walks miles, doing something that they don’t want to should have a higher income than those who sit around all day, doing absolutely nothing useful.

Now that you’ve read this, it is your duty to create more opportunities for the less fortunate, along with getting the low waged better jobs and higher income. America needs to be fixed up and it is your job to do that. Thank you for your time.
