One major issue that is very important and a major problem in our world is the lack of funding in education. Education is very important in this world, as it plays a major role in the development of children who will grow up to play major roles in our future and society. My solution to change this problem is simple.
There are currently 193.3 million employees in the United States. Most people get paid every two weeks, which is roughly a total of 26 pay periods per year. If one dollar is deducted from each paycheck and donated to education, it would make a huge impact. The impact on one’s finances would be negligible, and would only be losing $26.00 annually. But this small amount annually would total to be more than $3.5 billion annually. The money should be earmarked for education, and should be split up in each state based on how many employees participate in this program in each state. By doing this small, simple thing, we could raise $3.5 billion dollars in 60 seconds. It would also create even more opportunities in creating extra jobs to help carry out this plan.
