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 Wal-Mart 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 the paper addresses single parenting, Stanhope's article is especially effective in the portion of my
essay that addresses employment. One of the essay’s 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 the essay’s 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 the essay’s thesis.
