Assignment: For DSA#3, your paper will be based on the completion of two worksheets: 1) Living Wage Analysis; and 2) Poverty Budget Analysis. Make sure to complete the first worksheet prior to completing the second one. Although you do not need to upload the completed worksheets, please use the data from those worksheets in your paper (see more explanation below).
You can access the worksheets within the DSA#3 folder (inside Assessment/ Assignments). You can also access them in Content/Week 4. I recommend printing these out. Again, you will not submit the completed worksheets but the findings of your analyses from the worksheets will be the basis of your paper.
For your paper, 1,000-word minimum, discuss your findings with some details, reflect on the challenges that low-income families face, and incorporate several of the key concepts from Chapter 9 (examples: social class, social stratification, social mobility, etc.).
I suggest that your introductory paragraph establish a strong connection to the key concepts in Chapter 9. Then develop 2-3 body paragraphs discussing in some detail your findings from the worksheets. Finally, write a concluding paragraph that is reflective in tone. Keep in mind that millions of families live within that gap between the living wage and the minimum wage.

A living wage is an approximate income needed to meet the basic needs of any given
family. A living wage intends to help low-income families to gain financial independence while
at the same time sustaining housing and food security. Combined with reduced expenditures for
housing and childcare, the living wage can free up funds for savings and ensure financial security
in the long term. People in the lower social classes have low income and wealth and face an
uphill task in improving themselves. Individuals in the upper class can easily record upward
social mobility. At the same instance, those in poverty have downward mobility because of
economic setbacks like unemployment, dropping out of school, thus downward social mobility.
From the living and poverty analysis, the living wage is capped at $16.54 per hour, and poverty
