This is propaganda because
I believe it is propaganda because it does not state where these numbers are coming from. It gives some information, but not enough. Makes it seem like Wall Street is the enemy.

    This image qualifies as propaganda because it show the unequal distribution of money.
    This image is in the middle of harmful and beneficial depending on which way you look at it.
    The ad is trying to sell that full time hands on workers make less than just the bonuses of business men and women on Wall Street.
    The appeal is plainfolks because most people in society can relate to the making minimum wage.

    This message is a portrayal of propaganda because it relates to everyday workers and the unfairness of wall street itself without saying where they got the info. This is harmful ad trying to expose the corruption and inequality in the wage gap. This image is sold in the way that hardworking laborers don't come close to earnings at wall street. The emotional appeal present is pity because it wants the reader to feel bad for a laborer and demand a solution to the injustice.

    This message qualifies as propaganda because its stating facts that cannot be supported about 2 groups of working class citizens. Theyre selling the message by using 2 work groups that take up a good majority of the nation, in hopes to get higher wages. This appeals to association because theyre trying to make one group seem better then the other without facts to prove it

    I truefly think that minimam wage should go up to at least 10$ an hour because so people might want a little more money so they can be able to buy what they want this is beneficial because someone might want more money in their pocket. This is a appeal of authority or exports.

    This image qualifies as propaganda because it is aiming to change your mind about and how you view Wall street. It is beneficial to society because it brings attention to a select few people have so much money, more than millions of people. It may be negative about people who work on Wall street but it does not hurt them. The appeal oversimplification is being used because they are not providing much information thats could shape opinions.

    This qualifies as propaganda because it shows wages of common people. Its beneficial because it opens peoples eyes about how unfair some jobs are.

    The image qualifies as propaganda by aiming to change your mind how you feel about money. Its beneficial to society by bringing attention to people that like money and things at wall street. Its selling to people that dont make as much money as people do at wall street. The emotional appeal its showing is social fears because its trying to get the hard workers to feel bad about the money they make

    This is influencing the additude of the population toward the minimum wage problem. This is beneficial to the lower class society more than than then higher class society. They are selling this by use the color change and the large lettering. The emotion they are using is pity and social fears. Pity because they differnce between the high class and the lower class. Social Fear because how much the minumum wage is low.
