Blog Chosen:


October 24 is “Workers Demand a Raise Day”

Statement with Fallacy: “President Obama and other politicians have not been helpful in increasing workers’ paychecks.”

Fallacy: Hasty generalization

I felt that the fallacy used in this statement was hasty generalization. There was not any evidence or anything substantial to support the statement. The blog stated that The Baltimore Workers Assembly created “Workers Demand a Raise Day” to demand that the minimum wage be raised to $15 an hour. While the movement itself is sincere, the statement presented does not necessarily rely on facts, or statistics to prove the point. The statement is only backed by their emotion and their belief that there is not enough being done to raise the minimum wage let alone that it is solely the Presidents or other politician’s faults(Ford, 2013).
