Project Title and Description

"The Salary Is Not Enough for a Life in Miami"                                                                        UN Sustainable Development Goals #8        

Course:     EAP 1586 - Advanced Reading, Listening, & Speech

Instructor:  Anouchka Rachelson


This project focuses on the minimum wage in Miami, which is not enough compared to the price of living here. This affects the economy and the stability of people at risk of becoming homeless. My project is based on ways to solve the problem. The first is to understand the difference in aid that the government offers from food to housing, and the second one is to accelerate the amendment to increase the minimum wage. Finally, we can help people to improve their way of life and contribute to Sustainable Development Goal #8.
