Make sure to document properly your citations, quotations, paraphrases, and summaries from the websites using MLA style guidelines.Ø Include all the sources you used in the Works Cited page at the end of your essay.Ø Assignment Details:For this assignment, write a three- to four-page argument for the editorial page of your local newspaper, in which, based on your evaluation of a number of websites, you make a recommendation on what the minimum wage should be in your city or state.· To reach your conclusion on this issue, you will need to evaluate each of the websites from the list (5 websites) plus two more that you will find.· If you want to use your sources most effectively to support your argument, it’s not enough to simply include them as a series of unrelated sources; you need to tie them together, explain their relationships with each other, and express your conclusions about them. This process is called synthesizing, and it is discussed in more detail in Synthesis (22.14) in Achieve.While writing your essay, you will need to evaluate the truth of the information you find on particular websites.
