    are you restricted heavily in word numbers?
    Yeah, the essay dealt exclusively with Miami-Dade County and you only understand it fully if you live here because youll know everything im talking about. Ive been here almost three years, on-off, im originally from Boston, Ma. And the homeless problem isnt nearly as bad, or as difficult to get by.

    Funny you say that. It was actually about four times as long. I took out alot of information. I shortened it up because i wanted to make sure someone read the whole thing and not intimidate them with boatloads of information. So i just put the bare bare bones of my argument. I'm glad i did too because its been getting some positive local attention (somehow all doctors or hospital workers....spot on prediction RWC)

                I actually enjoyed reading that. I don't necessarily think that minimum wage laws are to blame though. I think the american employment structure and economic structure is incredibly flawed. Everything here is thought of in terms of money, which really fucks over a lot of people. Companies' main interests are to grow their profitability and ensure that stockholders' and the company owners' wealth is maximized rather than it being the betterment of society and providing people with something that they either need or will improve their quality of life. The huge focus on financial security encourages companies to underpay and under-appreciate employees by cutting costs where ever they can. The minimum wage tries to offset this corporate greed so its a good thing. The problem with it is that the minimum wage hasn't been adjusted enough for inflation.

                    Why is living in a studio needed. Why is a home needed. People go camping all the time as recreation. If the minimum wage gets you above the level of camping (say, living in a car) then it should be good enough. Truckers go weeks on end living in a space no larger then a tent. I once met a man running across the country and he spent most nights rapped in a tarp in some random park. I used to work out of my own van. If worse came to worse living in it would have been a few blankets and a cheap solar panel away.

                    Also working over 40 hours a week is just a fact of life. Yes I get overtime pay at my job but working less then 45 hours in a week very rarely happens. There is also nothing but a person's personal choices that makes a minimum wage job permanent. If you are hard working and competent you can easily move to better paying jobs fast. I've been working for long enough that I have seen it. So many people can't reach that basic level. It is just shithead after shithead. People who think all they have to do is show up for work and do the minimum and they will get more money.

                      Thanks dude! I totally agree with you. In this essay i wanted to focus in on one problem that IMO doesnt get enough attention. I removed about 5/8ths of the info that was there to stay super focused and not lose any readers.

                      What i talk about in my essay is only one of the side effects that result from the ongoing abuse of a system that wasnt designed with such abuse in mind. It may have been a good idea when that system was put in place, but its my belief that its time to reevaluate.

                        It was an assignment on homelessness in Miami (where the thingd you described are illegal and will land you in jail)

                        But i can dig it man. I think everyone should live more independantly; more naturally.

                        You guys inspired me to make a new thread in a little bit. I hope to hear all your ideas in it.

                          I love writing essays. It is one of the best methods in modern university education system. Don’t you agree? I think that we have to learn how to work with information and how to put in words what we are thinking about things we have learned. Yes? But there a few subjects that I don’t like. Ordering an essay on essayhave reviews is allowed in that case, I presume. Why not? If you are writing everything else by your strength.
