1. BEFORE you start the quiz, read the passage below and put the argument in standard form. You will need to copy and paste your work into the window for the last item on the quiz.

The editorial, "Two-tier for teens," (May 11), attempts to blame the high unemployment rate and the high teenage unemployment rate in particular, on the minimum wage.It's just not true. The best research and actual experiences with minimum wage increases in dozens of states have shown little evidence of job loss. For example, states that raised their minimum wages above the federal level between 1996 and 2007 actually enjoyed faster job growth than states that did not.And while critics like to suggest that the current rise in teenage unemployment was caused by recent modest boosts in the minimum wage, this claim is flat-out wrong. Studies show that teenage unemployment rises faster than adult unemployment in every single recession — regardless of whether the minimum wage goes up. This is because teenagers are always the "first-fired" during economic downturns, when they have to compete with adults for scarce jobs. Cutting the minimum wage for teenagers, as the editorial suggested, would just give businesses an incentive to lay off adults to hire cheaper, teenage labor. It's a foolish, mean-spirited, and ill-conceived idea.
