The National Labor Relations Act allows employees to form a union or join a preexisting union. The same act prevents employers from standing in the way of workers attempting to unionize. Many organizations frown on unionization, but regardless of their opinion, they cannot interfere with employment rights. Employers are violating the law if they threaten employee 's jobs, question union activities, or eliminate benefits for employees by unionization. They also cannot offer benefits or perks to employees for refusing to unionize, as this could be seen as illegal persuasion (Employer/Union Rights, n.d.). With that in mind, employers have the right to enforce no-solicitation policies, as long as it does not apply only to labor unions.
Amendments are an important system in America without amendments it would be totally different. An example, alcohol would still be prohibited if the 21st amendment didn’t repeal the 18th amendment. What an amendment means is an article added to the constitution.
As some of us might know there has been a passionate debate on the issue of the net neutrality in which there is strong feelings on both sides of the debate. Net neutrality is the idea government should regulate the internet so that the major telecommunications companies won’t be able to turn the internet landscape into a monopoly. This paper will examine both sides of the net neutrality debate in which the content of this paper will explore both the pro and cons of net neutrality. At the end of the paper I will reveal my true thoughts about net neutrality and will discuss what I have learned about this issue in the process.
According to the Fourth Amendment, people have the right to be secure in their private property, and may only be searched with probable cause. However, in a recent case, this right was violated by the government. An Oregon citizen, with the initials of DLK, was suspected of growing marijuana in his home. The federal government used a thermal imager to scan his home, and were later given a warrant to physically search his home. However, many remain divided over whether or not this scan was constitutional, as there was no warrant at the time of the scan. The government’s actions were not constitutional, because they did not follow the precedent case, used technology that exceeded human senses, and violated DLK’s right to privacy in his home.
Our government claims that as humans we are innocent until proven guilty, however this is not the case as we are locking up these unfortunate people upon their arrival. Human rights commission released that what the government was doing is illegal. Our nation in response focused not on the mistreatment of these innocent beings but instead asked for the resignation of the human rights commissioner, Gillian Triggs for shedding the truth of what is really
Choice. It is one of the basic human rights everyone should have. However, sometimes the ability to make your own choice is hindered. When New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg proposed a law to ban large-sized sugary drinks, the city was splintered. Some people believed it was the right thing to do while others disagreed. Limiting the amount of soda a person can purchase is not a good idea, despite its benefits. The regulation itself has a multitude of problems, such as how there are many contradictions, how involved the government is, and how the ban doesn’t really improve health.
America is the universal symbol of freedom. But is it really free? America at one time was defined by freedom, however now America defines freedom. Thus, altering the definition of the term. The founding fathers of America made specific rules for us to follow to keep peace and unity in our society, but over time those rules have been tampered with. Keeping only key components to make it seem as if it hasn’t changed. When the colonists from England traveled over to America they had a utopia of freedom waiting for them. They had no rules or guidelines to follow or anyone to impress. The freedom had no charge. It was free.
The protection of environment is crucial to the wellbeing of this planet. The job of government is to protect and preserve the land on which its people live. However, there is a bill being considered that completely goes against this, one that calls for the eradication of the Environmental Protection Agency, a government program created to protect human and environmental wellbeing through their regulation of laws. I urge you to oppose bill H.R. 861 - the termination of the Environmental Protection Agency - because of the ways that the EPA protects air, water, and land.
America is pushing the constitution by trying to stop the freedom of speech, by the state governments and the capital. The first amendment (Freedom of speech) says “Freedom of speech is the concept of the inherent human right to voice one's opinion publicly without fear of censorship or punishment.” They are trying to stop us from saying what we want by shutting us up when the police come, we have the right to say what we want to, the police can’t stop it. They don’t want us to say what we want to because they think it will be hurtful to the government, like saying against a law they put out, or protesting to something they do. They are canceling out what we are trying to tell them. Stopping people from saying what they want people to
Some people may think that the 14th amendment does a poor job of protecting people’s rights. In document five it explains how on September 11, 2001,with the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, it has caused video surveillance in the United States to increase. For example the U.S has programs that use facial recognition that help match photographs of criminals faces to the criminal. Another program that we use helps prevent suicide bombers from attacking. Some people may think that prevention of terrible events reoccuring or occurring is a good thing, but using security systems everywhere may be a violation of their rights and privacy. Such as the government tracking your every move, having the threat of people spying and blackmail,
By the way, did anyone ever tell you that the Constitution is unconstitutional? Yep, the whole thing. Or at least its ratification was illegal. This is not a joke, except to the degree that it is.
The patriot act has in my opion violated the 4th amendment. It has its advantages as far as terrorizim but to normal citzens this is a complete violation of our privacy. bThe late Benjermin Franklin warned us about trading our liberty for sucureity. This act has taken away a lot of our liberties it gives the government way too much power to invade our privacy. They now have unprecedented power to monitor the phone calls, e-mails, without a warrant. This is a great way to monitor terrorist but for the normal non criminal citizen it 's a violation simply because they can collet such things as religous affilations. medical conditions, close friends, romantic partners, gun owners and any additions. there is a movement in congress for a cleaner auterazation
After a number of attempts, the federal Dream Act legislation has still not passed. Despite the difficulty the federal government has had on passing the DREAM Act, several states have taken it on their own initiative to create their own version of the DREAM Act. “Currently, at least seventeen states have laws allowing students who meet specific requirements, regardless of their immigration status, to pay in-state tuition rates at public postsecondary institutions” (Table). Supporters believe the federal DREAM Act will impose significant benefits to both the United States and immigrant populations and will continue to push to get the legislation passed. However, those who oppose this legislation believe it would greatly harm our country
The cartoon that I have chosen represents Bill C-51. Bill C-51 is an anti-terrorist act which the Parliament of Canada has passed to allow Canadian government agencies to know more information about individuals. This bill allows the Canadian Security Intelligence Service to stop terrorist acts from occurring by cancelling suspicious suspects’ travelling plans or by taking control of their finance and banking. With this bill taking place, the police don’t have to be 100% certain that a suspect has committed a harmful act and are allowed to keep someone in the police station for up to three days or prison them for about five years if a crime has been committed. This bill had been released on the 9th of June in 2015.
