Another relevant example relating to institutional racism is that, in nearly all West European countries, Labor market legislation discriminates against foreigners. They are granted labor permits for a specific job in certain firm for a limited period. They do not have the right to move to better paid or more highly qualified positions, at least for some years (Martionelli, Rath, 2010) Taking into consideration all the social outcomes of institutional racism, it certainly shapes and influences what many planners do. However the planning profession did not embrace the pursuit of racial justice until the 1960s.
Along with rising income inequality and high incidence of a low-wage job, policymakers were concerned with its social policies and explore ways to tweak the social safety nets to limit low-wage work. Henceforth, the policy challenge is to ensure that any tweaking of the social safety nets has to be done in the way that maximises work incentives, upward mobility and dignity (Poh, 2007; Yeoh,
When writing an argument, it is always helpful to observe whether others argue effectively or ineffectively depending on their reasoning. The Toulmin method of analysis, based on the philosopher Stephen Toulmin, is a way to analyzing a written argumentative piece, with a deeper thinking responding to that particular argument and give a better understanding of the explanation given. In the excerpt Raise Wages, Not Walls the argument being discussed is that building walls won't approach the problem of illegal immigration correctly, because there are always ways around it or loopholes, but to instead raise minimum wages and reduce low paying jobs. So why waste the money and labor on building ineffective walls, when there is another solution to better the problem with illegal immigration in this country.
I will also have a chance to interact with people from different cultural groups thus making it easy to develop cultural competence in my line of duty. On the other hand, I will gain experience in handling different patients with a variety of needs for restoration of their health (Reel & Abraham, 2007). The nursing profession in the future will receive the support of the government, the hospital administration and the community served. As a result, working in different parts of the country will ensure that I acquire more skills and advance the learned ones thus meeting the demands of the patients. The future will thus offer an opportunity for the APRNs to operate in different parts of the country thus achieving long-term
Support groups like young mothers group trust, help provide a wide range of support for young mums, between the ages of 16 and 25. There are also other support groups that can help not just one community or social group, but many more. For example ukcpn. Ukcpn is a community-based organisation, which work with universities to help tackle and improve any social concerns and inequalities. Having support group like these, means people like Melissa who want to go university in the future, will have a safe environment to travel and live in.
Additionally, a temporary worker program could help alleviate labor shortages, employ those willing to travel to the United States for work, and offer them a taste of living in the country. Without changing our current laws, the US is expected to enter a state of chronic shortages of workers. This will lead to higher prices and longer wait times in the service sector. In agriculture and goods, it means offshoring production and
Migrant Workers Migrant workers are a vital part of our nation. They are very important to the maintenance of America as well as other companies. Although they do a lot of good things for our nation, they are considered bad. Some people could argue that they are stealing jobs from Americans, and they are getting away with not paying their taxes to help our nation's economy. I feel that the benefits outweigh the drawbacks of having them in our country.
Although child labour has received considerable attention through the intervention and pressure from the international and national institutions with their frameworks and policies to reduce or eradicate the issue, the problem still exists as the underlying causes are not recognized. In Asia, the underlying causes of increasing child labour market is correlated to the level of income in the society and as well poverty (ILO 2004, 80). It is also crucial to understand that the driving factors of child labour often lies in the household decision-making process, the constraints that families are facing, etc. (Betcherman et al. 2004, 2-3).
If an illegal immigrant tries to ask for help after suffering an injury at work, he or she is left on their own. Laws helping these workers should be made to protect these laborers from being took advantage of. Valenzuela argues that, “day labor in the United States involves the complex interaction between labor supply and demand, patterns of industrial change, the boom in residential construction and home improvement, and increased migration to the United States.” The States needs illegal workers to improve their economy, but should also allow fair working conditions and
They fear that their presence will affect the economy negatively, when in reality the economy benefits from the immigrants. According to scholar Cari Lee Skogberg Eastman, who studies border and immigration issues, “Research shows that immigration helps create jobs … and that immigrant labor is particularly necessary for STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) …” (37). The presence of immigrants functions as one of the elements that make up our economy because they take the jobs other people with higher education will not. Not everyone is willing to work under the sun, picking up the crops of the food we all eat; therefore, we need to appreciate those hardworking immigrants more. It is unethical that undocumented immigrants are treated like they are worthless.
So in order to help hopefully change the views of the community, I would tell Carol to set up a home visit for them to come and view Joy’s and Bobby’s home. This will allow the community to see first hand how Joy is living and caring for Bobby on her own. After the home visit hopefully change the views of Joy, and also allow more support from the community. What, if any, assistance should Carol enlist from other members of the Smythe County ECI
ISSUES What is the Workplace Action for a Growing Economy (“WAGE”) Act and why should Congress pass this legislation? BRIEF ANSWER Currently, the remedies available under the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”) are purely remedial, and do not adequately protect the rights of workers, and “[a]s a result, a culture of near impunity has taken shape in much of U.S. labor law . .
Now that the positive effects have been discussed there is still an entirely different set of outcomes that have to be looked at and considered. How could this potentially hurt the economy? What types of effects will this have on small businesses and their employees? What do these changes look like for individual families making minimum wage and individual middle class families? It is clear that there is a universal goal to better America, reduce poverty, and maximize social equality.
An inadvertent consequence would be giving the president more power. The challenge to amend the constitution to implement the changes to filling the seats of elected positions. The ones who are currently holding these positions would have to draft legislation to make these changes. The ones who are currently making a career out of politics would have no interest in the change.
