Dumas’s original name, Firoozeh, suggested that she wasn’t born in America, so her peers excluded her. In Dumas’s case, her foreign name had the power to show that she was Iranian—or at least from a different country—so people discriminated against her because they were able to recognize that she was unlike them. Moreover, Dumas’s situation demonstrates how only when English is completely adopted by an individual (extending even to a person’s name) will she be accepted by her
In more than one occasion Mercedes reminds her undocumented employee, Enrique, to “speak English” because they “are in America” (7) it is the most obvious act that can differentiate Mexican and American lifestyle. Mercedes want her Mexican employees to speak English in order to stray away unwanted attention. When removing Spanish communication, it does not allow for one to be seen as a different individual allowing them to blend in with the American community. Some may say that Mercedes chooses to restrict her employees from speaking Spanish in order to make the employees feel more comfortable when talking to her American customers. However, Mercedes’ employees are not speaking the language that they are comfortable speaking in, but instead are speaking one that is not familiar with their native tongue in order to make communications easier between her employees and the
They talk a lot with their hands when they are explaining something. I observed the server when he talked to his other associates and it was different from how he interacts with others from a different culture. With people from his culture he would stand close to them, have good eye contact, talk very fast, touch their shoulder, and laughand smile most of the time. I think they want to respect all their customers so they stand further away and do not make so much eye contact because they do not know how others feel about it. When providing care for the Mexican culture there are many implications for health careproviders in order to deliver culturally competent and respectful care.Providers need to have an awareness of their own cultural beliefs and practices so that they can identify their views from others.
They could argue how the company blurring Erica is normal because she showed her breasts and it was not for a general audience. However, when companies censor women, they censor their breasts, buttocks, and vagina, but with Erica, who is a transgender woman, the company censored all of her which does not add up. From this evidence, there is bias against Erica because she is transgender. Also, people could argue that Ma only uses bandages to cover Erica’s breasts since her mother is transphobic. But, in literature and especially short stories, symbolism is widely used and an idea as practical as, ‘because her mother is transphobic’ would not work because of the words in the quote such as, “vanishing” and “like they never existed” are perfectly in one sentence along with both words relating to invisibility.
They were regarded as vulnerable foreigners that could quickly be deported away back to Mexico if any of them ever made any demands such as demanding a higher wage. As Steinbeck stated in Article 6 of his Harvest Gypsies, “The right of free speech, the right of assembly and the right of jury trial are not extended to Mexicans in the Imperial Valley.” Due to these circumstances, the Mexican labor force was easy to manipulate. The strike was a victory for foreign laborers as their wages increased from 60 to 75 cents. However, they also lost because the laborers did not win the ability to form unions and conduct collective bargaining. It showed that organization of labor, even if made up of foreigners, could still find success through
However, curanderismo allows other cultures to accept Chicanos due to stressing the importance of intercultural communication skills in society. For instance, even though some Chicanos have insurance, they tend to follow these holistic practices and are afraid to mention it to their primary physicians because they fear being rejected from society. According to Maritza Montiel, “A recent study concluded that 69% of Mexican Americans do not report the use of herbal remedies to their physicians” (Montiel 83). Becoming aware of the cultural differences, encourages cross cultural sensitivity by reducing the tensions between other cultures and practices. In addition, professionals can understand their patients’ needs by understanding the social framework of the biological illness.
In the scene, “I’ll Make a Man Out of You”, Mulan and many others are taught how to act like a man. Women are not treated as equal because they are not allowed to train with the males. Males and females can have the same characteristics, making them equal. But the Chinese society did not believe that males and females were equal. Mulan breaks the Disney stereotype of most princesses.
Although the picture brides desired to be like their American counterparts, they were still ashamed to work for them as it was looked down upon in their culture. They felt as though couldn’t “mention them [their American bosses] in our letters to our mothers. [They] did not mention them in our letters to our sisters or friends. Because in Japan the lowliest job a woman could have was that of a maid” (Otsuka, 2011, p. 45). Working for these American women pushed the picture brides towards a desire to assimilate and whiten themselves.
In the Debate of speaking Spanish prompt the author Myriam Marquez explains that speaking Spanish in public places in America is not to make herself look un-American, but because she feels it’s a free country where anyone can speak any language they like.

Your organization as of late declared a "communicate in English-just" arrangement, and your manager has let you know not to ever communicate in Cantonese to your associates while at work. Second example is that if another client benefit position opens in your organization. You apply for the activity since it pays a higher pay and more customary work hours. Even though you are familiar with English, you are told by the chief that you can't be considered for the position since you talk with a Spanish articulation.

Starting off with the big name corporations that run other smaller companies will paint a more accurate picture of how open businesses will be to educating their workers, because of their large number of employees. This would be accomplished by holding workshop days for companies and giving a presentation over the lack of knowledge about the Electoral College, how this can affect the company 's business after elections, and how educating their workers can help them through new tax breaks. A benefit of personally contacting companies is that the owners will be able to ask questions over material they do not understand. The world of tax breaks and the Electoral College is a confusing place. Having professionals present that are well educated in their field will allow the Business owners to ask questions and clarify what may seem
One of these was a demonstration on how to properly shake someone’s hand. This may seem like a simple task, but if done incorrectly it could ruin your interview from the start. Karen brought a student up to the front of the room and provided insight onto the proper technique such as each person gets three shakes while they introduce themselves. This is essential information because there is not a book on how to properly shake someone’s hand and to hear how to do it from a proven successful businesswoman is priceless. She also told the class how to introduce oneself to a lesser or greater person.
However, many workers earn salaries that are unable to fulfill the basic need of life.

Givens also noticed that their were not job descriptions- which left employees confused on what they were and were not allowed to do. Givens however did not decided to define their roles alone- she invited her employees to make these descriptions along side her. Givens also invited them to come up with a mission statement for Westlake Lanes. This was a great example for a new leader coming into a business with employees that have been there for years.
Deborah L. Rhode explains, “Appearance must be seen not only as an aesthetic issue, but as a legal and police one as well.” In “Hooter Hires Based on Looks. And So Do Many Companies. And There 's No Law Against It.” Rhode explains that there is an unfair advantage for attractive people in their occupation, there is no law against discrimination based on looks, beauty standards are too high which leads to eating disorders, cosmetic surgery, and dissatisfaction with body image, and policies think that the reason discrimination is okay because they don 't know who is attractive. Initially, there isn 't a fair way the majority of employers hire because customers prefer attractive employees. In the workforce, attractive people have an unjustifiable advantage that ugly people are born without:
