Can you use "you" when writing a research paper ever?
I’m trying to write the introduction paragraph to my research paper on governmental neglect during the Industrial Revolution.
To begin, I want to capture the reader’s attention by putting them in the place of an immigrant or impoverished citizen working and describing the squalid living conditions.
Would it be in bad taste to use “Imagine you are paid two dollars a week….”?
