According to the act, as we have mentioned before, FMLA only covers private employers in which the business employs 50 or more employees. Since Steven works for a private organization which only employs almost 30 employees, this is one fact that will disqualify him for FMLA leave. Second of all, not just any employee who ends up being employed for an employer who is covered can actually take advantage of what FMLA has to offer. In order to gain benefits from this act, the employee has to be employed by the business for at least 12 months. Since Steven has only been employed for 7 months, this unfortunately further disqualifies him to the benefits under this act.
And they wonder why they crazy… we ain 't
Namely being a protected way for employees to take off work in order to take care of themselves or their family members. According to Heather Boushey, Ann O'Leary, and Alexandra Mitukiewicz (2013) the FMLA has been used more than 100 million times by American workers to help balance the demands of the workplace and home. Data shows that those whose combined workforce totaled more than 520,000 — showed that employees were no more likely to request intermittent FMLA leave on Friday or Monday than on any other day of the work week. Of the more than 920,000 intermittent leave requests analyzed in the study, 19% were submitted on Monday and 17% were submitted on Friday, compared with 19%, 18% and 17% submitted on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, respectively (Dunning 2013). Based on these statistics alone, employees obviously respect the Act and are using it for the intended purpose, although there are still some marginally errors that could affect the Act as a
In “The Bernie Bomb” by Kimberley Strassel, critical, mocking tones emphasize Strassel’s feelings towards Bernie Sanders’ inability to become the President of the United States. Bernie Sanders gave quite a performance at the first Democratic debate of the year. Strassel shares her thoughts on the nature of his responses to important issues during the debate by concluding that his followers should regret making donations to his campaign seeing that he really is not in it to win. Her witty critiques indicate her strong feelings that donating to Sanders’ campaign in hopes that he will become President, is truly not worth the money. Strassel’s diction heightens the uncertainty and unprofessional manner behind Sanders’ attempt at trying to be elected as President, which leads his supporters to doubt their contribution to his campaign.
Hardin adopted an extremely rigid tone but completely disregarded the fact that this poverty in which the developing countries were drowning was inherited by them when the developed countries started colonizing in search of gold and silver, and interfering in the political affairs. In addition, he failed to address how the US was conspiring against Iraq and planning a military invasion to usurp the oil reserves to nurture their own boat. Moreover, Hardin claimed that if the developing economies were to develop, they should learn by experience. However, he made a vague argument and contradicted his own statement by saying that the rulers are corrupt and incompetent, thereby, creating a logical fallacy and defending it in a superficial and controversial way by saying, “The concept of blame is simply not relevant here” (Hardin 20). Thus, Hardin overlooked the fact that how these developing countries would learn by experience when the corrupt leaders are not willing to
our ships rotting in our harbors...the insults that are offered to the American name and character in every court of Europe...”. At the time of this being written the condition countries government was heading downhill. This interesting take on the countries condition by this newspaper highlights the distress that this group of people felt. The writer is trying to prove that without a strong central government the country will not make any significant advancements. The author of the newspaper is trying to convince the people that all of these negative effects are because of the lack of a strong federal government.
However, some argue that they shouldn’t be in America legally for these three reasons. First, they came here illegally without being assured they could come to America. Then, they took our jobs that some of us Americans may need. Finally, we wanted to live our “American Dream” and the immigrants are not american, so we wouldn’t be able to live that dream.
Welfare is a government program that provides money, medical care, food, housing, and other things people need to afford. People who can receive help from these programs are children, elders, disabled, and others who cannot support their families on their current income. Some laws that were enforced during the 90’s, restricted welfare benefits for new residents for one year to the amount that received in the state where they previously lived. After living in the state you have come to for a full year, you may reapply and then get that states full Social Welfare benefits.
Have you ever owed someone $20? Well, imagine owing someone $100,000+ . Many students every year are left in crippling debt that can affect them for the next few decades of their life. Because of the cost of college, many students fresh out of high school can’t go to college. In order to make it easier for the lower-class to go to college, you should do at least one of the following things.
They think that immigrants refuse to learn English and they don’t want to learn anything about the U.S. Many people say immigrants get our benefits. They don’t think immigrants should get our benefits because they don’t deserve them. One of the biggest reasons nativists’ don’t want immigrants here is that they’re afraid that immigrants will take over. We could help by trying to explain to people that immigrants are not here to take over. Again, immigrants are not bad for the economy.
Those who have decided to forgo insurance were in a family of at least one person working (KFF, 2016). In which estimated to be approximately 8 in 10 and 5 in 10 were 200% below the poverty line (KFF, 2016). Considerably, adults were at higher risk of uninsured compared to children as a result of limited public coverage services for the over age 18 population of non-elderlies (KFF, 2016). In all cost of health insurance premium remains barriers for many families who to have made such sarcifice (KFF, 2016). Thanks for sharing your post.
If wounded, and they can 't be restored, how should they be compensated? If military service fails to provide veterans with the skills necessary to find work in the civilian sector, should the government take action? Reasonable people can disagree, and within that disagreement politics of the time rules. It is an extremely harsh irony to veterans waiting for service-connected disability compensation claims, treatment in understaffed VA facilities or struggling to find work, but this imperfect form of governance which is “our democracy”…..is precisely what they fought and risked their lives to
Incompetent Politicians Need to Grow Up Presidential Race: In “Why should we hire Carly Fiorina for president?” Richard Cohen asserts that Carly Fiorina would not be a good choice for president, regardless of her success or failure in business. Cohen employs the use of the example of Herbert Hoover, an excellent business man but a “political klutz” (9) to show that having people who are not legitimate politicians try to be president is not in the best interests of the United States. Cohen also uses statistics to illustrate that she was not even that good of a businesswoman, as the stock of her company decreased significantly during her time there. This serves to discredit her further because even if one believes that a good businessperson will
Having the military as the main source of creating jobs can become very useless as most nations now a days don 't even go to war mainly because of National Peace Corporations, this causing their troops not being utilized. Robert B. Reich, a professor of public policy at the university of California, Berkeley, asserted that "Having a giant undercover military jobs program is an insane way to keep Americans employed." he again argued against the defence program saying that “a jobs program for building weapons that America doesn 't need is wasteful and a poor use of resources. The government should invest and create jobs in areas where the United States actually needs improvement, such as in education or infrastructure”. Wouldn 't it be better to have a jobs program that created things we really need, like light-rail
According to Fox Sports, this has been a law for at least 10 years. If a player gets fresh out of high school and then has to wait for 3 years, then that player is probably going to lose his/her talent with a sport. Also, people say that college is to much money. A basic degree in college is about $200,000. Most people don’t have that kind of money, making them in debt.
