    Second, when we raise wages and the amount of money companies are having to pay their employees prices for that company’s products will also increase. For these companies to keep their employees at this increased wage they will have to be making a greater profit from their products. Third, when companies are having to pay employees at an increased wage they risk the chance of not being able to afford to pay that many employees. Therefore, there could end up being a lot of layoffs and unemployment rates will rise. Another problem with unemployment is that most teens and young adults rely on part time minimum wage jobs to have some extra cash for school and other activities.…

    While innovation is optimal for short and long-term growth, it tends to leave many jobs and workers stagnant. Current trends in unemployment reflect a shift toward advancement in American manufacturing and technology. Although economic recovery is still in progress and some citizens have experienced some improvement, to curb unemployment, policymakers must implement training programs and focus on higher education policy to positively affect frictional and structural economic growth and to remain on pace with innovation and promote economic prosperity. The economy can benefit from instituting a post-schooling system directed at transitioning workers that have been affected by changes in the workforce and do not have the resources to obtain equal or better employment. Together with a post-schooling system, higher education needs to be made more accessible and affordable to all students/workers, regardless of social class or ability to pay.…

    Obama came to this understanding because of the persuasion of the large number of economists who proposed the idea of raising the minimum wage. The economists believe that the minimum wage workers will spend their money on additional necessities, which will then pool money into the economy. Due to the higher demand for products, more workers would be needed to support the growing businesses, resulting in job growth (“Economist’s Statement on Federal Minimum Wage”). However, approximately 17 million minimum wage workers and 11 million workers who work slightly above the minimum wage would be affected by the raise. But, the 11 million workers would experience a “spillover” effect, allowing then to also receive a higher salary.…

    The increased minimum wage could also negatively impact smaller firms and businesses as they have to pay the increase in wages for their employees (Clemens & Withers, 2014). The cost of the increased minimum wage could further be passed on to consumers as employers and businesses increase the price of a product or service in order to reduce unemployment (Card & Kruger, 1994). Thus an increase in the minimum wage hurts teens and young adults, unskilled workers, workers with a lower level of education and…

    Americans are fooled into thinking that raising the minimum wage is as simple as a law being passed. The thoughts of the nation are heavily in favor of raising the minimum wage in order to make life easier on the people using those low skilled jobs to support a family. The belief is raising the minimum wage will result in more jobs for those currently unemployed, and will get more money into the pockets of the lower and middle classes. Americans fail to realize that companies pay for productivity. Once a lower skilled worker gets a raise, the people above them will be looking for a pay increase as well.…

    When it comes to technology, most will agree that its advancements play a huge role in unemployment. Where this agreement usually ends, however, is with the question of its long-term effects. While some are convinced that technology will soon create jobs, it is more likely that available jobs will continue to decrease. Peter Diamandis says that there is controversy over whether or not technological unemployment actually hurts workers or the economy in the long run. Although the rise of technology has caused a major decrease in available mid-wage jobs, he believes that this is temporary and that within several decades the economy will be stronger than ever.…

    Jastrow says “Computer intelligence is growing by leaps and bounds, with no natural limit in sight (Jastrow 1594).” This leaves no boundaries for the expansion of technology. Jastrow also says “ultra- intelligent machines will be working in partnership our best minds on all the serious problems of the day (Jastrow 1594).” This partnership may require a high amount of intelligence on both ends. Which would require robots and computers to become almost human like. Having a partnership with humans would require robots to be able to function without human help. Scientists used to fear the thought of artificial intelligence, but now they use it in their everyday lives (Levy 1598).…
