and thanks for taking the time to read my question.
I was writing an essay not too long ago, and I ended up writing a sentence that goes like this:
As people convert to higher-paid jobs the birth rate will lower and the numbers will remain small and sustainable - something which cannot be said about today’s society.
My peer suggested that the dash should go. I do see merit in using a semicolon in its stead, but I don't believe the dash to be wrong here. Is there one solution that the stack-exchange community prefers? Are either of the two wrong?
