  • You brought up a lot of good points! I am and always will be on the side of wealth over happiness but you did a good job portraying the arguments and shutting down parts you may not agree with. Well done.

  • This post was very well laid out and got the point across efficiently. Good job using applicable examples and describing how different things impact them. It will be interesting to see the future of drug rules and usage in sports.

    Unfair Treatment of Workers

    The problem originates from major companies outsourcing their labor mainly to 3rd world countries.  From Brookings, “Foreign nations that wish to be granted free access to the world’s biggest and richest markets should be required to observe fundamental human...

    • Nick,
      I liked your perspective on labor laws and work place violation. I think it is interesting to think about the vastly different conditions that United States workers have vs other countries in the world. Especially in manufacturing the people in the United States there is a crazy difference.

    • Nick,
      I completely agree with your perspective on labor laws and topics as such. It has often been seen that big corporations have factory workers that have awful conditions with nonrealistic work hours, and it is truly awful to hear of. I found it interesting that Nike has now turned its back on unfair labor practices. I think that is a big step in the right direction for the rights of workers across the board!

    • Nick,
      I absolutely agree that outsourcing labor is a big issue, especially in the United States. You made several good points about the wealthy having so much control over these agreements. I think that it is fair to say that protests won’t be effective in stopping these giant corporations from exploiting cost-efficient labor, but what CAN we do? It seems that not even the government could become involved because they have no say in the labor laws of these third world countries.

    Coronavirus and Impacts

    The coronavirus pandemic had many negative but some positive impacts.  Nearly everyone’s daily routine was drastically changed, unemployment rates blew up, but investing smartly during the pandemic can put you far ahead of many others. There are plenty of other...

    • Dear Nicholas,
      I am interested in your post because I think it does a great job of highlighting some of the most important effects of the coronavirus pandemic. I like how you pointed out that unemployment because of the virus “has caused many families excessive financial stress and in a few cases has probably caused much more damage to people’s lives.” I think it is important to focus on the financial damage that the pandemic has caused because it affects so many people. We are all experiencing the impacts in some way. Thanks for your writing, and I look forward to seeing what you write next.

  • Estrella,

    This is a very important topic that we all need to be thinking about. Originally no one imagined covid would last this long but now, here we are. It is crazy to be living through something that younger people will learn about in school and that new rules and policies may go in place because of. Overall well done.
