a. Escaping the destructive scale of World War I the United States became the world’s leading economic power. Europe on the other hand found itself short of $350 billion and virtually bankrupt. The war had ruined the economies of the Allied nations, which had been limited to the production of armaments for the last four years. A terrible product to invest a nation’s entire economy, weapons could only be used during times of war, serving no other purpose than this, and so the Allied nations looked on at their weapon stockpiles and groaned at the money wasted, as their economies entered a period of decline. To make matters worse, the total death toll of the Great War and the Spanish Influenza that followed it numbered in the tens of millions, a loss of life that meant Europe’s economies had been robbed of the talents and brains of an entire generation of young men.
What are the legal and ethical issues in this case? One perceived ethical issue in this case is the practice by A&F to produce clothing designed only for certain people who fit A&Fs mold (cool kids). Other legal issues include discriminatory hiring practices and the lack of handicap accessible entrances. A&F had a lawsuit filed against it claiming discrimination against people of color, including Latinos, Asian Americans and African Americans. In 2009, an Oklahoma teen sued A&F after being told her hijab was not consistent with the A&F look, and more recently a corporate fighter pilot claimed he was fired and replaced by a younger man (Carroll & Buchholtz, 2015).
Racial profiling is to suspect someone of something (usually negative) due to the color of their skin. It is frowned upon by many but sometimes it is a necessary evil in the world of business. When running a business, all that matters is the BUSINESS. Sometimes that means doing things that you don’t always agree with. However, if it means keeping your business successful you do it no questions asked.
According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, illegal aliens cost the United States $116 billion annually, after considering the net sum of their contributions. Granting the illegal occupation of the United States legitimacy would add nothing of value to our country. When considering the facts, it would only make our communities more dangerous, our schools more underfunded and overcrowded with standards that continue to slip, it would exasperate our $20 trillion national debt and annual deficit, and encourage another wave of foreign nationals to illegally invade and occupy our country in the
This issue also can get out of hand faster due to the company not starting an investigation yet as they were not notified. This can cause out rage with the pubic as the company is seen as being sexist and being unethical due to not starting the investigation. The second issue that should be addressed is the issue involving Paul Bertuzzi because he had insight to the fraud that was happening within the company, but decided not to say anything about it. This is the next issue to tackle as fraud is a criminal offence. As Paul had knowledge about the scheme that was being planned but wasn’t evolved it does not take first priority.
ABC Company has ordered several thousand light bulbs from XYZ Company. ABC ordered specialty light bulbs to be used in special heating lamps they produce. These lamps require 250 watt bulbs, but XYZ sends 150 watt bulbs. The mistake delays the shipment of several thousand heating lamps, resulting in losses to ABC Company.

First, is the possibility of termination that would lead to immediate loss of income but may also lead to loss of licensure. Some states are “right-to-work state” which means even if my hospital goes union I do not have to join. Unions are limited legally by what they can accomplish for the worker, although a lot of people believe otherwise. This has remained debatable over the years. Unions have decreased over the years because the benefits for workers that unions push for are mostly covered by law now.
My views have changed on poverty and how it really is. I was originally aware that often it is not someone’s fault they are in poverty, but often a consequence of circumstance. The “American Dream” that anyone who is willing to work hard and do their job right can make it big or move up in social classes is not true. For some it might be true, but often people who live in poverty are not allowed the resources or opportunities to change their situations. After the simulation I became more aware of just how many different challenges people can face when in poverty, and they might make enough money to not qualify for welfare, but that does not mean that they can always afford the basic needs of a family like food because all
Ronald Faison Eng-106 February 20, 2018 Professor MaryBeth Nipp Definition Argument Essay The selling of human organs under U.S law is illegal for many reasons. By having bids on life or death situations can have a negative effect on people with low to no income waiting for an organ. The only lawful procedure for someone to receive an organ transplant as of now is to be placed on a waiting list. Human organs that are sold is considered human trafficking because it is the process of selling or transferring human tissue by force (National Institute of Justice, 2007). The selling of human organs is not only illegal but unethical, in many cases unsafe, and it is very biased against lower class.
Morley-Murphy sued zenith for violation the Wisconsin Fair Dealership Law, which prohibits the termination of a dealership agreement without good cause. However, Morley-Murphy lost the case because Zenith’s economic circumstances constitute good reason. They were losing money under the relationship with Murphy.

Ms. Yates has argued that punishing individuals is one of the most effective ways of actually causing a corporation to rethink their actions, but this is also difficult to do. When a corporation is investigated, the Justice Department requires them to hand over any documents related to the case and the individuals who were involved in specific crimes. Obviously, the individuals involved are less inclined for this to happen and are often in management roles at the company. In the average case, the corporation and the individuals at fault admit to wrongdoing—as Credit Suisse and five other global banks did in May of 2014--, but they do not disclose the names of the individual people responsible. At this point in the game, the Justice Department faces a dilemma.
Novelty Now from producing dangerous products. However, if many people have suffered from the product, a class action suit may be initiated because there is no guarantee that some other clients would not experience skin discoloration and it would make it very costly for the company to
As I stated in my DQ response, plagiarism can result in broken trust, damaged reputation, and can severely damage your career. Plagiarism isn 't just sinful, or immoral, it is illegal. There are some that are lucky enough to be given second chances, but most people that plagiarize in the professional world are terminated from there job. In any professional writing career, plagiarism is a career ender. It doesn 't just get you fired, it labels you unhirable due to ethical misconduct.
Per, Fortune, “The American consumer is no stranger to steep price hikes on drugs. But few increases drew outrage like drug company Mylan’s decision to raise the price of its EpiPen. The device, which administers epinephrine, a crucial antidote for those suffering anaphylactic shock due to allergic reactions, is beloved by parents of the 1 in 13 children that suffer from food allergies in America. But Mylan has increased its price by 400% since acquiring the device in 2007. Many American families, especially those with high-deductible health insurance, struggle to afford the $500 sticker price for the life-saving drug.
Paying an “invisible worker” in cash lowers the cost of that worker by at least 20 percent.” (Schlosser 83) After knowing employers commit these infractions, they may even falsify numbers or hours worked in order to avoid paying any overtime hours. Not only are they violating rules but also they are breaking laws. This is when laws should be enforced to put an end to any abusiveness caused by employers. Employers, who do not pay their workers what they deserve, should be persecuted for theft. Illegal workers should find assistance instead of feeling helpless by letting themselves being grossly taken advantage
