I do not believe that the Social Security Act improved democracy or the freedom of Americans at all. In page 809 of the course book, it explains that domestic and agricultural workers, as well as those working for non-profit organizations (such as schools or hospitals), were excluded from this act—totaling about 5 million people who were excluded from the social security act. This total included a large portion of both African Americans and women. The exclusion of so many from this act shows its lack of democracy. Since the passing of the bill, all citizens are required to have a social security number and are subject to withholdings.
As GAO found that the government, including watchdog agencies such as BBS Wise Giving Alliance and Charity Watchdog, do not have a regular and external evaluations on Red Cross’s services and performance, thus it recommends the congress to institute a legislation regarding this. In response, Representative Bennie Thompson from Mississippi has created a bill to audit the finances, disaster response, and services outside the country of the organization. Thompson has stated in the interview that there’s no full cooperation from Red Cross when GAO has conducted its first investigation or inquiry and they did not permit GAO with “unconstrained access” after several requests of significant information. He also mentioned that McGovern tried to have Thompson stop GAO’s inquiry. These have created more suspicions and doubts toward Red Cross.
After waiting for two weeks and not receiving a response Mr. Filasky called back and was advised to return the packages to a store. The store was not able to assist him as well. Since then he has been referred to the Fraud and Retention department who have also not been able to assist him with the return because it is past the 14 day return period. Mr. Filasky requests assistance with
I 'm not sure if they paid the fee or not. During the winter of 2013, the Pynns was not able to pay their electricity bills, so their electricity was cut off after April 2013. Loran let the Pynns use our electricity between April and June 2013: an extension cord connected from one outlet in our kitchen to their kitchen. Loran paid about $300 extra for the electricity during the period. We disconnected the
Despite proper handling of restoring power, the aid to Hawaiian citizens following Iniki was notably slow, with some families still waiting on assistance 6 months later. The insurance companies, already overwhelmed by claims from the southeast after a devastating Hurricane Andrew just weeks earlier, were unprepared to handle the increased demand, and many companies chose to stop operations and leave the Islands in the following year. In response the Hurricane Relief Fund was enacted in 1993, but after 7 years with no major tropical activity impacting Hawaii, the fund was stopped in
No one actually celebrates Columbus Day What if the United States government thew a federal holiday and nobody went? That would basically be Columbus Day. According to an analysis by Vox, only 15 percent of all private sector workers take the day off and the holiday is only recognized by 22 states. The result is that, in nearly half the states in the country, the only real effect is that parents have to figure out child care solutions because their kids have the day off while they do not. The net result isn 't a day of rest and relaxation.
When the voter ID law was not yet put into play, the number of registered voters in Texas in 2011 was estimated to 12,841,808. After the law had been put into effect in 2013, there were 13,445,285 eligible voters by the November elections. (4) But, in a 2014 congressional election there was a slim decrease. Fifteen out of seventeen states decreased in Voting-Eligible Population (VEP) turnout between the years 2010 and 2014. A potential reason for the decrease between the recorded years is that some citizens are incapable of meeting up to the states’
One in 6 parents have gone without food themselves in order to be able to feed their families. Over 500,000 people are dependent on food aid. Food poverty in the UK and the use of food banks is regarded by may as a national shame (Cooper & Dumpleton 2013). In households which cannot afford an adequate diet for their children, 93% have at least one adult who ‘skimps’ on their own food to try to protect the children. Half a million children are not adequately fed in the UK today, not as a result of negligence but due to a lack of money.” (Poverty and Social Exclusion UK,
(document 12) The journey Columbus took spanned months so they almost certainly brought medicine. The reason Columbus didn’t help them was unknown but a known fact is that he didn’t bother to help them. Finally, the native American population got decreased by more than 24 million because of Columbus’ actions. The graph in document 13 show a decrease in the Native American population by 24 million people. This resulted from the arrival of the Spaniards in 1492.
Agricultural teaching jobs go unfilled each year due to a lack of qualified teachers. The NAAE speculates there to be about 8,200 high school and middle school agricultural education programs in the United States and Puerto Rico. Yet, each year programs close because there aren’t enough teachers. According to the Ray Nash, an ag teacher in Mississippi, “Ag teachers never have the same day twice.” They often attribute to working during the summer (“Consider a Career In Agriculture Education - FFA New Horizons.”). County fairs, FFA events, and other agriculturally related gatherings are things that they get to be apart of.
