Can the difference between C and E be provided?

I was able to narrow the answer choices down to between C and E. I ultimately chose C because I thought it contained the same reasoning as the passage in the question. Can you explain why E is is correct compared to C?

Hello @ajs,

The stimulus presents us with two groups that are treated differently under the law: migrant workers and permanent employees. Permanent employees are guaranteed a minimum wage, while migrant workers are not. We are then given a similarity between these two groups: they both work full-time. Based on this similarity, the author concludes that the groups should have the same rules applied.

Answer choice C does have two groups that are treated differently. However, it does not explain why they should have the same laws, other than for the sake of uniformity itself. It needs something like, "Yet these nations have the same average murder rate. Therefore they should develop a uniform policy." The stimulus makes a claim about what the law should be based on, which is full-time hours. There is no such element in answer choice C.

E is better, because "danger" is presented as the similarity between food additives and drugs. Much like the author believes that full-time labor is the basis for a minimum wage, this author believes that potential danger is the basis for safety regulations. Both categories can be dangerous, so both categories should be regulated.
