Stanhope, H. (2010, August 11). How low can you go: living on minimum-wage in America. American Living, 1, 63+.
This article explains the author's experiential research in which she attempts to ascertain whether it is currently possible for an individual to live on a minimum wage in America. After shadowing a waitress, a maid in a cleaning service, and a Walmart sales employee for six months, Stanhope summarizes her experiences and reflects on her findings, including the individuals' relationships with fellow workers and their financial struggles.
While my paper addresses single parenting, Stanhope's article is especially effective in the portion of my essay that addresses employment. One of my supporting points addresses the difficulty single parents’ face as they attempt to balance rearing a family while providing financially. Specific quotes from the workers who were shadowed will provide support for my points through real life examples. Further, Stanhope provides scholarly research on the economy and the rising cost of living in America today, which also lends support and credibility to my thesis.

My paper particular addresses challenges that college students encounter after school as they are trying to fit in the job market and thus Brooks article provides noble knowledge that elaborates on the current situation that is in place and the hustle that these students have to undergo before they comfortably settle . The article further analyses the system of educating and mentoring that these students undergo through their school life most of which is contrary from what the world outside expects of them thus posing a major challenge for these students to accept their adulthood responsibilities and chant their way into the job markets.
