New Year, New World Buzz

Hi MERHS Debaters!

Please read the following article for this week’s World Buzz quiz:

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/08/13/us/starbucks-workers-scheduling-hours.html?module=Search&mabReward=relbias%3Ar%2C%7B%222%22%3A%22RI%3A14%22%7D

In recent months, the movement for an increased minimum wage appears to be gaining momentum.  This article looks at a perhaps lesser known aspect of the burdens on hourly wage workers in this country: the role of technology in creating work schedules that can wreak havoc on the lives of low-income parents.  I found it interesting and hope you do, too.
