All in all, the minimum wage poses many problems and creates unnecessary complications in society. It contradicts free market values and prices out unskilled or inexperienced workers by forcing employers to look for workers with higher productivities. The existence of the minimum wage is full of irony, contradictions, ignorance, and foolishness and should be destroyed as soon as possible.
Time sure does fly; in the blink of an eye, yet another 7.5-week class has come and gone. Just like life, it is scary to think that in just a few short years I will be graduating college and be in search of a future career. The magnitudes of readings, assignments, PowerPoint lectures, and videos have all contributed to the valuable knowledge I have gained since taking this course. Nothing that was presented or required was seen as invaluable towards my progression of career development. This career development course has allowed me to do some self-exploration, career research, and help me understand what influencing factors were related to the job market. Ultimately, this class helped me gauge and find a suitable career path, which will forever shape my future.
The minimum wage law has its advantages and disadvantages. In a sense it will help those less educated/skilled support their families and be able to afford the costs of life.

Minimum wage is the minimum price you can pay your workers for their time and labor. While workers getting more money may seem like a positive idea, it actually has negative impacts on the economy. If the minimum wage goes too high, due to the increased wage that companies must pay, there will end up being layoffs in companies. They will have to raise their employees wage to a certain amount or higher, but will be unable to do so due to budget. This also results in fewer hirings, making the unemployment rate increase. Also, if the minimum wage is too high, it results in higher prices since companies need to make more money to pay their employees. Lastly, there will be more off-shore hirings, to hire workers for a lower wage. However, a minimum wage that is too low will also harm the economy, since workers are not making enough to support businesses, thus also supporting the economy. It also decreases the quality of life of the worker. Minimum wage has a negative impact on the economy, but can have a positive impact on
The concept of virtual classes seemed challenging when I was first introduced to it. Gradually, I felt more confident and comfortable with the assignments and the virtual community of nurses. I am pleasantly surprised how important and meaningful the virtual community of nursing colleagues became to me. Sharing the assignments online with my fellow nursing students enhanced my critical thinking and helped me grow professionally. I feel like reading and responding to my colleagues’ writing through Moodle helped me discover nursing from a variety of different perspectives. For example, there are nurses in our class who work in oncology settings. They have shared their experiences in their clinical settings with the use of alternative and complementary medicine that I will incorporate into my practice. Online community is very valuable to me. I enjoy being a part of the amazing group of people!

Final Project Reflection The group project turned to be an amazing first time experience for me on working as a member of a team for organizing an event. I find it safe to say that it would not have been possible if I were on my own. Each effort from the individual group member made it possible to create an event that I could never imagine at the start of the project. Through this project I have learned what actually working in a group is and how amazing things can happen if many hands and heads are working together.
