Arguments for and against raising the minimum wageArguments for and against raising the minimum wage:Arguments for and against raising the minimum wage2 hours ago in Literature Templates More Like This
For raising the minimum wage:
.Increases the standard of living for the poorest and most vulnerable class in society and raises average
.Motivates and encourages employees to work harder
.Stimulates consumption, by putting more money in the hands of low-income people who spend their entire paychecks
.Increases the work ethic of those who earn very little, as employers demand more return from the higher cost of hiring these employees
.Decreases the cost of government social welfare programs by increasing incomes for the lowest-paid
.Encourages people to join the workforce rather than pursuing money through illegal means, e.g., selling illegal drugs
.Encourages efficiency and automation of industry
.Removes low paying jobs, forcing workers to train for, and move to, higher paying jobs
.Increases technological development. Costly technology that increases business efficiency is more appealing as the price of labor increases

Entry #4- The Last Thing I Want To HearAgain, this dream is really short, but scary because this could absolutely happen anytime. I hate to think it, but it could come true.Entry #4- The Last Thing I Want To Hear23 hours ago in Literature Templates More Like This
I had this dream on the night I had my "Boothworld Industries" dream.
If I recall correctly, I was in San Diego with Ruben. I was pacing around the dock, A horrible feeling in my stomach for some reason. My mind wondered to my mother, and what could possibly happen to her. I love her, and I always will. But I felt like something was gonna happen, like maybe she would- No I couldn't even think about it!
Ruben was on the phone, talking to someone who I didn't know, I didn't know or care what he was saying. I was just so wound up in my thoughts.
"Grace." he called me over after he had hung up. I suddenly knew what he was gonna say. And I didn't wanna hear it.
"Your mother is dead."
I just stood there. Staring, crying. My heart was shattered into a million pieces. I couldn't move. I couldn't speak. I could only stand there, helpless, and feeling guilty at w
Entry #3- Boothworld IndustriesThis dream was more of a nightmare than anything, and it wasn't very long. Only like a few seconds. But it was scary nonetheless.Entry #3- Boothworld Industries23 hours ago in Literature Templates More Like This
So theres this CreepyPasta called "Boothworld Industries." Supposedly, it's a company you call to schedule a "remodeling."
"Remodeling" being a fancy term for murder. You call, state the name of a person you know and they'll kill them for you.
I had called this certain number. My phone was on the ground in front of me, on speaker. I wasn't myself though. I think I had a different name and different looks.
The operator on the other line was a man, and he asked. "You called to schedule a remodeling?"
I said, "Yes."
He then said, "For your father?"
"Yes." I replied. "Done." he had said, and then hung up. It's pretty much the exact same thing that happened to my favorite YouTuber, Reitanna Seishin. Except it was for her mother. I was terrified when I woke up...
How I Write: SentencesHey, since i have a bit of writers block i decided to find a way to cure it- by showing you how i write when i do :IHow I Write: Sentences1 day ago in Literature Templates More Like This
So step 1!!!
Think of the basic character and what they are doing in the sentence.
Since this is just a test i will not be using her name since there is no need.
Action: Eating popcorn
Just something random. But make sure to make it retentive to the story.
She popped the popcorn in her mouth. She paused, letting her tongue take in the taste, before finally chewing and swallowing.
Yes that is a good sentence BUT it needs more.... juiciness! So had some descriptive words. At this point dont worry about spelling mistakes, yet!
She gently popped the popcorn into her mouth. She paused, letting the buttery taste swarm over her tongue, before finally and reluctently chewing and swallowing the delicious salty popcorn.
See?! Awesome! Now fix spelling mistakes. You dont have to write like this all the time. Once you get used to it you wil
Entry #2- Slender Man Chase DownI had this dream probably almost a year ago. I still remember it clearly though. Me and my dad were at this abandoned house, or so it looked like.Entry #2- Slender Man Chase Down23 hours ago in Literature Templates More Like This
Apparently his friend Matt had done something to piss the both of us off and just a quick side note, Matt is not real. Anyway, I think we were at his house, and we had a camera. It was one of those camera's you'd see in Paranormal Activity or something like that. I was recording Ruben and I was saying something along the lines of, "I hope Slender Man steals his soul." This was back when I first got into the Slender Man Mythos and finding out about CreepyPasta and stuff like that.
I don't quite recall what happened next, but I do know that Slender Man showed up, his face was of course, blank. He was chasing after the both of us, and he was teleporting as well. I was scared witless at this point, and I dropped the camera onto the ground and ran for my life. I totally forgot about Ruben, but I knew he was behind me.
As we were both running for
Entry #1- Heroic Black Veil Brides!!So I don't remember the beginning that much but I do remember I was with my friend Alejandro, who had these big red nerd looking glasses. We were in the hallways in our school and for some reason it was on top of a cliff instead of in a normal location.Entry #1- Heroic Black Veil Brides!!23 hours ago in Literature Templates More Like This
Anyway, we were walking to my social studies class and I think I said something along the lines of, "I hope miss Grabber isn't mad that were late again," miss Grabber is her name in real life.
As were walking, I realize that I left my pencil in band class so I was like, "Hey Alejandro, I left something back in band. I'm gonna go get it real quick. I'll meet you in social studies."
"Okay." he said and I began making my way towards band. And the hallways in my school was different. There were clear glass windows instead of the white colored walls. I thought it was kinda cool but I had no time to get distracted. By now I was practically running down the halls to band class.
When I got there, it was completely empty except for my band teach
