Cival Rights Act 1964 - 1,990 words
When the Government Stood Up For Civil Rights "All my life I've been sick and tired, and now I'm just sick and tired of being sick and tired. No one can honestly say Negroes are satisfied. We've only been patient, but how much more patience can we have?" Mrs. Hamer said these words in 1964, a month and a day before the historic Civil Rights Act of 1964 would be signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson. She speaks for the mood of a race, a race that for centuries has built the nation of America, literally, with blood, sweat, and passive acceptance. She speaks for black Americans who have been second class citizens in their own home too long. She speaks for the race that would be patient ...

Equal Pay - 1,688 words
Pay equity means of eliminating sex and race discrimination in the wage-setting system. The wage gap is currently at 73 cents to the dollar. That means the wage gap has narrowed by less than a half penny per year. There are currently two laws that protect against wage discrimination, The Equal Pay Act of 1963, which prohibits unequal pay or substantially equal work performed by men and women. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits wage discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, religion or national origin. Pay equity is a benefit for everyone. Women and people of color should not be in fear of asking how much someone else is making or to question, why they arent making a c ...

Managing Diversity - 1,629 words
Managing diversity in the workplace is a subject that has gained increased attention among managers during the last two decades. After all, the impact of affirmative action and equal employment opportunity programs on the nation's work force is undeniable. Women and minorities were the first to dramatically alter the face of the economic mainstream, while gays, persons with disabilities and senior citizens followed not far behind. The result is a diverse American labor force representing a microcosm of our society - yet one that continues to struggle with its identity. Diversity as a social condition is not new to the U.S. Founded by immigrants, the nation has always been a merger of culture ...

Affirmative Action The Real Deal - 1,431 words
The Necessity for Affirmative Action: During the American Revolution Thomas Jefferson and America's founding fathers struggled for freedom and equality. Years of agonizing battling took place, and finally emancipation was gained and America was formed. As a society we have grown to believe that America equals equality, when in fact it does not. When the declaration of independence was created only white male colonists were created equally. Over 224 years have gone by since our foundation was laid, and unfortunately our original goal has not been reached. Liberty and justice for all is still a utopian idea in the minds of many but not all. There are three reasons our society has not reached i ...

Immigration Of The Eastern Dragons - 1,691 words
The latter half of the nineteenth century was an important period in Chinese American history. The story of their migration from their homeland to America to seek riches with their combined strength, knowledge and skills changed the face of Hawaii and the American West. Unfortunately, this dynamic period also saw the rise of racism and paranoia over Chinese competition for jobs. Chinese immigration to the United States in the mid-nineteenth century was only a part of a greater exodus from Southeastern China. By this period in China, the Manchu dynasty was on the decline. Corruption and oppression were on the rise. The taxes of land rights increased causing grief and discontent among the popu ...

Using Arrest Records In Hiring - 1,161 words
The Supreme Court's 1966 Miranda ruling providing for the right to remain silent is now a well-known phrase thanks to American mass media and, especially, popular television police dramas. However, not nearly as well known is, that for better or worse, this right can also be extended to the workplace. The topic of this paper is to examine the legality and issues involved with regard to questioning applicants during the hiring process about their arrest and conviction records. Discrimination occurs at all levels of society involving many types of people for various reasons.

Intro: To start off, I would like to present a quote from Historian, Roger Wilkins. Blacks have a 375-year history on this continent: 245 involving slavery, 100 involving legalized discrimination, and only 30 involving anything else. This quote makes you think, Thats a rough history to go through. The next thing that comes to your mind should be, well have things gotten better? And the answer is yes and no. Yes, we have come a long way, and No, there are still many things wrong. Affirmative Action is unfortunately abused but not using this law effectively outweighs the abuse in America.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." Margaret Mead For many generations it has been believed that woman's place is within the walls of their own homes. How can we ask this of the women in a culture that is constantly changing and which makes a need for women to extend their responsibility outside their own homes. Life isnt just handed to someone on a silver platter, there are never ending responsibilities not only for men but for women too. Women should have the same rights as any other human in society.

Work is very important to have a better life. It is true to a great extent but the working conditions for childless workers and employees with children are very controversial.

Women In Business - 1,285 words
Women are only slightly more successful in reaching the highest levels of business today than they were in the colonial times. With the start of the twentieth century, more and more women carry the desire to have a career outside the home. They would like to get out in the real world and be independent. This is however hard to do considering the average man with a high school degree earns more than the average woman with a college degree (Empowering). However, some women are slowly walking away from the general stereotype of a "housewife" and branching out into the workforce. But, even with the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which states that discrimination in any way is illegal among other things, ...

These rulings affect lawsuits that are filed against companies for sexual harassment.
