Twa We Tend to Think Term Paper

… "

But yelling at people is not how you get them on your side. You get them on your side by showing them how a union helps them with everything from job security to childcare.

A understand that people have the right to join a union or not. And I understand that for a lot of people their image of a union is Teamsters bashing people over the head. And I understand that maybe a lot of people want to end up in management themselves and so their loyalties are already with the management and not with the other workers.

But I also know - from my own experience - that my life is better as a union member than it was without the union.…. [read more]


Globalization and the Impact Onus Manufacturing Term Paper

… GLOBALIZATION and the IMPACT on U.S. MANUFACTURING

Ten years ago, the debate surrounding manufacturing leaving the United States had as its focus the jobs that were being pulled southward into Mexico. Today, this issue is more urgent than previously however, the source of worry is not only focused on south of the border in Mexico. Manufacturing is increasingly relocating to Brazil, China, India, Bulgaria and Malaysia. It has been estimated by the website Economy.com, an economic consulting firm in West Chester, Pennsylvania that 1.3 million manufacturing jobs have been moved abroad since the start of 1992 and that the bulk of this has occurred in the past three years with the majority of jobs moving to Mexico and East Asia. The Trade Resource Center relates…. [read more]


Public Policy Dealing With Minimum Wage Term Paper

… Public Policy Dealing With Minimum Wage

Introduction minimum wage refers to the lowest hourly, daily or monthly wage that employers may legally pay to their employees or workers. The first minimum wage law, worldwide, was enacted by the government of New Zealand in 1894, followed by a similar law promulgated by the State of Victoria, Australia in 1896. Other countries followed suit and currently over 100 countries, including most industrialized countries, have some form of minimum wage law in place. ("Q&a: The Minimum Wage...")

The need for minimum wage law was felt largely due to the plight of the low-wage workers, especially women and children, who were forced to work in appalling conditions and for ridiculously low wages in the early decades after the Industrial…. [read more]


Human Resources Management - Maintaining Term Paper

… For his efforts, sales increased by more than 9% and total shareholder return rose by 56%. To leverage this success, Martinez created a core group of senior executives known as the Phoenix team. The charter of this team was to duplicate the success by creating a plan to implement and sustain the changes across the entire organization. Using an employee questionnaire, the group determined that employee attitudes correspond to customer satisfaction. They perfected a model that indicates that a 5-point improvement in employee attitudes will drive a 1.3-point improvement in customer satisfaction. Moreover, the increase in customer satisfaction drives a 5% increase in revenue growth. The bottom line result was an additional $200 million in revenue resulting in an increase of nearly a quarter of…. [read more]

… Insurance

While there are abundant problems in the conduct of this company, beginning with the accountants' attitude and behaviour (especially cogent in this era of accounting scandals in the United States bringing accounting propriety issues to top-of-mind status globally, and especially in the G-8 nations). However, the issue that has the greatest ethical impact revolves around personnel issues.

Ethics of gender and age; liability

Currently, Britain doesn't have sex and age discrimination laws in force as strong and demanding as those in the United States or as demanding as those being formulated by the EU; moreover, there is a strong push in the European Union for such legislation region-wide and such intensified statutes are already under consideration in Britain. Indeed, the proposal for a EU…. [read more]

Corporation Diversifying Internationally Case Study

… They can exploit the labor and the tax rates and thus go on to reach revenues they wouldn't have attained otherwise. A report taken out by the Economist Intelligence Unit went on to say there were no violent acquisitions in any country from the period of 1993 till 1996. (Lins and Servaes, 2002)

Another issue that arises due to Global Diversification is the exploitation of ethics and morals. Pharmaceutical companies who have been put on limitations by the regulatory authorities can't do much in their own company. These sorts of drugs are rendered the only treatment option for those who can't afford the proper treatment. In 2005, more than 150,000 people took part in clinical trials that were carried out by companies originally in America…. [read more]

Features of the Economies Term Paper

… Injuries are common in the meatpacking industry, especially for line workers. Packinghouse workers do not receive health insurance for four to six months after starting work, depending on the plant (Benson, 1996). In an industry such as this, injuries occur often and generally in the first few weeks of work, due to insufficient training. The consequence of a high injury rate is that disabled individuals drop out of the workforce, seeking other jobs (if they can hold them) or drawing welfare benefits of some kind (Benson, 1996). In addition, due to the fierce competition in the labor market, many immigrants also conceal injuries out of fear of being fired.

Even individuals with coverage may not be able to afford the co-payments required for their families.…. [read more]

It maintains a 4,000 workforce (Aer Lingus), with which the company would be embattled.

The union of baggage handlers and check-in staff threatened to stage a strike if their request for pay adjustment was not met (Airline Industry Information 2001). These employees urged management to raise their pay level to that of the cabin crew. The company reportedly denied the request. The clerical…. [read more]


Retirement Portability Term Paper

… Retirement portability is a hot topic globally; as the economy forces job-hopping work life habits on more and more workers, it is necessary to be able to accrue funds for retirement; under traditional pension plans, retirement funding was lost when workers changed companies. The advent of the 402(k) changed that for companies that offered the plans; however, it also pushed more of the burden of retirement planning and preparation onto the wage earner. For low-wage earners, this was difficult because they often had nothing to put aside. The problem of portability is not unique to the United States, and it is likely there are lessons to be learned concerning achieving fairness, adequacy and efficiency in pensions, based on mandatory, universal, portable plans.

Origins, History of the IMF Term Paper

… SRF: Supplemental Reserve Facility loans are to be repaid within a year and a half, and there is a substantial surcharge of 3-5 percentage points.

CCL: This is under the same repayment criteria as SRF, but the surcharge is less (1.5 to 3.5 percentage points).

CFF: This type of loan was designed to help a country experiencing a very sudden "shortfall" in export earnings (caused by world commodity fluctuations), and the financial terms match those of the SBA (except CCF loans have no surcharge).

In the event of a nation suffering a natural disaster like an earthquake, flood, typhoon, or other calamities, or for a country just emerging from war, the IMF provides "Emergency Assistance" loans. They are subject to the basic rate of charge,…. [read more]

Shareholder and Stakeholder Values Term Paper

… Shareholder and Stakeholder Values

It makes sense for our modern world to have a foundation of a market-based economy because there are inherent conditions in the competitive market system that efficiently helps to meet the needs of consumers. These are not modern inventions or recent revelations. Adam Smith held concepts based on an invisible hand which was suggested as early as 1776 in the classic work An Enquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations. These insights still hold true.

There is no apparent conflict between the business community attempting to maximize shareholder value and maximizing stakeholder or social values. In a sense, we could say that maximizing one inadvertently helps us attain the other. Corporations and businesses can do well in…. [read more]


Education for Diversity Thesis

… Education for Diversity

Were you surprised at the categories he chose to ground his discussion of diversity?

No, not really, the categories Spenser chose seem to be some of the most important and relevant categories of diversity in adult education, and some of them, as he notes, have been ignored for far too long. Women are an important element of adult education, often because they must continue their education while working and caring for a family, and so distance and adult education courses help them manage their time more effectively. It is interesting that women were some of the first targets for adult education, and that their options were so limited in the past, even though they were often the instructors, as well as the….

Career Orientation of Bank Managers in Pakistan a Private Public Sector Comparison Term Paper

… ¶ … benchmark regarding bank manager careers in Pakistan. Islamic banking is a growing feature of banking in the region, and Pakistan as a nation has expressed interest in being the banker of that region. That being so, it is instructive to note that the managers who worked under the old regime are significantly less optimistic than the newer, younger managers working in the growth industry of Islamic banking. They also seem, if not satisfied with their career paths, at least resigned to their fate and accepting that maintaining their jobs and what vestiges of ethical behaviour they could was sufficient. On the other hand, bank managers who had experience banking in nations in which banking had less tumultuous history, as well as those who…. [read more]


Employment and Labor Relations Key Term Paper

… A typical procedure might be to survey the employees. A standard, anonymous questionnaire is given each year to every employee. The questions are designed to gather information on job satisfaction. Results of the survey for each workgroup are calculated and returned to each manager. The goal of the survey portion of the process is to gather key data to help workgroups focus on their problems and opportunities.

In order to understand the meaning of the survey results, managers must solicit feedback from their workgroups. The goal of the feedback meeting is to identify specific concerns or problems, examine specific causes for these problems, and devise plans to correct these problems. The company must analyze the feedback it receives from the survey to determine which factors…. [read more]


Entrepreneurial Leadership Styles a Comparative Study of Sweden and China International Business Term Paper

… Entrepreneurial Leadership Styles - Comparative Study of Sweden and China

In recent years, researchers have contributed different causes as responsible for the success of a country's economic system, and as a result, differing models for economic growth suggest multiple possible paths for success. Two countries of notable global success, attributable to each of its' entrepreneurial leadership skills, are Sweden and China. The world is changing fast, and China is now an important part of the global economy. However, cooperation in Europe is growing closer and broader. Sweden is a small nation with a history of major success on the global market, success that has been attributable to the Swedish business sector's strong position and skilled company leaders.

Workplace Bullying Term Paper

… Workplace Bullying

"Do you bully people or have you done so in the past?" (Peyton, 2003, p. 7) constitutes one contemporary concern/question currently challenging employees in workplaces all over the world. In response to contemporary, challenging concerns related to answers to this leading question, this paper explores the prevalence, forms and impact of workplace bullying in a sample of 26 executive secretaries and personal assistants from 22 private organizations in Bangkok, Thailand during June 2007.

Using a Workplace Bullying Questionnaire, this study seeks to answer the following questions:

How many of the executive secretaries and personal assistants are victims of workplace bullying?

How many of the executive secretaries and personal assistants have witnessed an individual being bullied at work?

What are the different forms of…. [read more]


Health Care More Area Term Paper

… A confidential setting is essential because a manager should never warn or reprimand a worker in front of their peers. It is very important to have a printed evidence of all transactions with a person who is exhibiting problem behavior. If cessation is unavoidable, make sure that it is a confidential, unbiased setting, where both the boss and the ex-employee can go away immediately after. It is up to you as a manager to develop a different kind of faithfulness in your workforce, by helping people realize that you're dedicated to their prospect in another important way- by constantly helping them develop their skills, and capability and adaptableness.

Catholic Church Public Policy in Spain and US Thesis

… As I previously mentioned, the Spanish population is religiously homogeneous. Roman Catholics compose of 99% of the population, while the remaining 1% of the population is composed of those belonging to Jewish, Protestant, Muslim, and Buddhist faiths. In relation to other countries in the European Union, Spain boasts one of the most "religious" populations. As data from a study of religiosity in the European shows, as late as 1982, only Ireland surpasses Spain in religious practice. Further, by the end of the decade, the percentage of individuals identifying themselves as "religious persons" ranged from a low of 48% in Denmark to 72% in the Irish Republic. The Spanish percentage of 68% exceeded all other countries except Ireland, Portugal and Greece. In stark contrast to the…. [read more]


Lesbian Health Care Dissertation

… The final consequence of such circumstances is that the research quality and generalizability is sacrificed in the face of affordability. Despite these challenges, researchers have indeed conducted fruitful and important research on the health status and experiences of sexual minorities, allowing for a thorough review of the literature concerning lesbian health, lesbian access to health care and lesbian experiences with health care services and professionals.

After reviewing the methodological issues relevant to studying lesbian health, the exiting knowledge concerning the current health status of lesbian women will be reviewed.

… History Of Canadian Labor: The Decline and Movement of Canadian Labor Between 1920 and 1940

The objective of this work is to analyze the decline and subsequent rebuilding of the Canadian Labor movement between 1920 and 1940.

David Schulze writes in the work entitled: "The Industrial Workers of the World and the Unemployed in Edmonton and Calgary in the Depression of 1913-1915 that the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) were "...remarkable among North American labor unions for two…. [read more]


flows of freight have of late Essay

… ¶ … flows of freight have of late been a critical element of the modern changes in the financial and economic systems at the local, regional and global scales. Looking at these changes one must only do so at quantitative, structural, and operational levels. Structural changes largely entail manufacturing systems with their production geography, while operational changes largely involve freight transportation and its distribution geography. Thus, the key question not only involves the nature, and movements of freights, but also the manner in which this freight is moving (Hesse & Rodrigue, 2004).

The multifaceted perspectives of friction in view of modern supply chain management involve a number of factors. Hesse and Rodrigue (2004) noted that transport expenses, the intricacies of the supply chain, the physical…. [read more]


Canada-u.S. Relations for the Canadian Public Research Paper

… Canada-U.S. Relations

For the Canadian public, the United States is widely perceived as an intrusive, aggressive, and increasingly reactionary bully. For the Canadian Government, the United States is perceived more as a force of nature, an absolute global hegemon providing stability and promoting prosperity, whose needs must be met even at the cost of Canadian national pride. This view was particularly evident during the 2004-2008 period when the two countries were led by Conservatives, who readily acquiesce to the rules of naked power. However, Canadian Liberals are willing to defy American demands at times, although never to the point of recklessness. This applies even if the U.S. president is a Democrat, as President Obama has discovered.

While the recession and terrorism limit the President's discretion…. [read more]


Illegal Immigration it Has Been Pointed Out Term Paper

… Illegal Immigration

It has been pointed out many times that the United States is a nation of immigrations, with only the Native American population having been here long enough to lay claim to be native to the land. Immigration has been a contentious issue for some time, long before the current level of concern related to a fear of terrorism and to a concern about economic impact. Economic impact was long raised as something to be considered, but racial, and ethnic attitudes also affected levels of all immigration. As the immigration system has evolved and responded to new situations, so have laws concerning illegal immigration and the nature of proposals offered to solve the problem of illegal immigration.

Between 1820 and 1910, at least 38…. [read more]


Sweatshops in Third World Term Paper

… A few of the abuses include obligatory overtime, physical violence, union busting and pregnancy tests as a condition for employment (Perrin Pp). It is said that the Taiwanese firms are following in the footsteps of many U.S. owned maquiladoras, which also take advantage of low wages, tax breaks and lax government enforcement of labor and environmental laws, however, U.S. factories tend to be less abusive because they are under constant scrutiny by non-governmental organizations and liberal politicians at home (Perrin Pp). Interestingly, in Taiwan there is little public awareness of the problem (Perrin Pp).

Within recent years, the U.S. anti-sweatshop movement has brought global attention to Nien Hsing Textile Company, the world's largest manufacturer of blue jeans (Perrin Pp). "The Taipei company has enjoyed spiraling…. [read more]

The Impact of Immigration on the United States Economy

Demographic Consequences:

American identity has historically centered on the ethnocentric proclivities of its ruling classes, which are generally constituted of white descendents of European settlers. The result is a nation in which socioeconomic, political and experiential realities are shaped significantly by ethnic background. Thus, even as immigrant groups arrive in the U.S. In numbers that are altering the general demographic makeup of this nation, the American identity continues to revolve on the myth of the white Christian man. A reality which emerges in our research is that America is in one regard moving ever closer to its rhetorical claims of a pluralistic society. But with the steady arrival of peoples from all parts of the…. [read more]
