A tailor himself, Jeon witnessed the horrendous working conditions in the Seoul Peace Market 서울평화시장; Seoul Pyeonghwa Sijang. Such conditions included rampant tuberculosis due to poor ventilation or the lack thereof in the sweatshop s, and the enforced injections of amphetamine s to keep sleep-deprived workers awake and to work them overtime without proper compensation. 3 Also, protesting against such conditions was, by association, protesting against the oppressive rule of Park Chung-hee, South Korea's then-dictator president.

... Social Justice / Racism. Shamus Cooke. If the Chicago teachers’ union — 26,000 members strong — goes on strike, many critical yet ignored political issues will go into the national spotlight, exposing nastiness that many politicians and labor leaders would like ignored until after the presidential elections. Thus, teachers have been directly targeted via budget cuts and Obama s “Race to the Top” Education policy, which blames bad teachers and the unions that protect them for poorly performing students, while conveniently ignoring the more obvious predictors of poverty and the constant defunding of public education. The education policies of President Obama and the Democrats will be put on trial if a strike takes place, since the Chicago teachers are fighting against the Democratic Mayor — Obama s former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel — who is most urgently implementing the Democrat s so-called “Race to the Top” education reforms — an education program that aims to privatize public education ...

*  .. Communicating Pricing in a Multi-tiered Distribution Model
← Color’s Role in Business Communications Did Labor Unions Really Kill the Twinkie. This pricing dichotomy can create a potential communications challenge, but only if the rationale behind this difference isn’t reasonable. I would propose that the car rental industry’s pricing strategy doesn’t make sense, and as a result, that industry is communicating poor messaging resulting in a loss of consumer loyalty and repeat purchases. Here is my source of confusion – if you take the time to create an online profile with your preferences, including personal identifying information about what you like to rent and where you like to rent, this privilege you are bequeathing to the car rental company comes at a price – you are charged a higher rental fee. Alternatively, if I go directly a car rental company and try to book the same car, the price is about $80-$90 per day, for the same period, same location and same type of car, a rate increase of 400-500% higher. The only difference is that the ...

... Red Sox Reality Check. Monday, April 25, 2005. Content and Context. A number of posters present thoughtful response to my commentary on 'head-hunting'. Steve D writes, "The problem with your scenario heavy fines and suspensions etc. is that it's impossible to prove intent." Both leagues have personnel assigned to mete out discipline in exactly this situation after review of the context of the situation. Steve is correct that every pitcher says "the pitch got away". Using that logic, managers should never be warned, and no one should ever be ejected, because no court, judge, and jury were assembled to prove intent. A secondary and surely less plausible point for most note is where wildness occurs. Generally, RHPs will be wild inside to RH hitters natural ball movement and LHP outside to RH hitters. Having pitched from Little League, Babe Ruth League, Legion, high school, college, the Intercity League, and even in an old men's league, I don't think I hit 3 lefthanded batters, and nobody anywhere near the ...

*  Obama: Change Is Going To Come
... During one of his many political campaign speeches to drum up support for his anti-American Socialist agenda, Obama stopped off at Madison, Wisconsin - a bastion breeding ground of liberal anti-capitalist hate. Thus, Obama felt right at home when he made these SCARY Racist statements: In every instance, progress took time. In every instance, progress took sacrifice. Progress took faith. You know, the slaves sitting around a fire singing freedom songs, they weren’t sure when slavery would end but they understood it was going to end. When women were out there marching for the right to vote, they weren’t sure when it was going to happen but they kept on going. Applause. When workers were organizing for the right to organize and were being intimidated, they weren’t sure when change was going to come but they knew it was going to come. And I am telling you, Wisconsin, we are bringing about change and progress is going to come — but you’ve got to stick with me. Applause. Change is going to come. Applause. Jim ...

Originally, the term "teamster" referred to a person who drove a team of draft animal s, usually a wagon drawn by ox en, horse s, or mule s.

A teamster might also drive pack animal s, such as a muletrain, in which case he was also known as a muleteer or muleskinner. Another name for the occupation was bullwhacker, related to driving oxen. Today this person may be called an outfitter or packer. Shemanski, Frances 1984 "Mule Days Celebration", 'A Guide to Fairs and Festivals in the United States', Greenwood Press, ...

... 'International Molders and Foundry Workers Union of North America' was an affiliated trade union of the AFL-CIO. The union traced its roots back to the formation of the 'Iron Molders' Union of North America,' established in 1859 to represent craftsmen who cast wrought iron metal products. It is now part of the GMP International Union. In the years prior to the American Civil War existing organization of workers in the iron industry was established on the basis of independent local groups. In 1859, there came a move to forming a national organization in the United States, and the Iron Molders' Union was established at a convention held in Philadelphia on July 5. Sylvis of Pennsylvania was appointed to prepare a declaration to the iron workers of America. Sakolski, "The Finances of the Iron Molders' Union,' in Jacob H.

Economy, Florida, Pensacola, Politics. Early Retiree Reinsurance Program. April 6, 2011. Leave a comment. This is what Speaker Pelosi meant by having to pass the health care bill to find out what’s in it. Who knew that the ‘Affordable Health Care Act’ was going to have taxpayers paying the health insurance claims for labor union, corporations, and government union employees who choose to retire early. Before they are eligible for Medicare. The program totals $5 billion and is supposed to last until January 1, 2014 when ‘State health insurance Exchanges’ are ‘up and running.’ But there’s a problem already. Over $2 billion has already been spent, and at this rate the program will be out of money sometime in 2012. Are you feeling secure now that you know your health care will be managed by the government. Do you still believe that Obamacare will bring costs down, and make the quality of care go up. At this point in time, payments to individual states are dwarfed by the payout to the auto workers union, ...

Scott Walker succeeded Friday in taking away nearly all collective bargaining rights from the vast majority of the state’s public employees, quietly capping weeks of contentious debate and delivering an epic defeat to the labor movement with a private bill signing. Walker planned to hold a ceremonial signing later in the day. The proposal touched off a national debate over labor rights for public employees, and its implementation is a key victory for Republicans who have targeted unions in nationwide efforts to slash government spending.

In 1971, the Durham City Schools faced considerable turmoil because of court-ordered desegregation.

Riddick invited Ann Atwater, a poor African American welfare mom and civil rights activist, and the segregationist Ellis to co-chair the meetings. After 10 days of talks, Ellis and Atwater became the unlikeliest of friends, and Ellis came to believe that whites, especially poor whites, could prosper more from the civil-rights movement than from segregation.

(1/78) Local labor unions' positions on worksite tobacco control.

OBJECTIVES: This report describes local unions' positions on tobacco control initiatives and factors related to these positions. METHODS: A national random sample of local union leaders was surveyed by telephone. RESULTS: Forty-eight percent of local unions supported worksite smoking bans or restrictions, and only 8% opposed both a ban and a restriction. CONCLUSIONS: Support for tobacco control initiatives among local unions was higher than might be expected on the basis of previous evidence. Engaging unions in smoking policy formation is likely to contribute to the larger public health goal of reducing smoking and exposure to second-hand smoke among workers.  (+info)

(2/78) Coverage of smoking cessation treatment by union health and welfare funds.

OBJECTIVES: This study determined the level of insurance coverage for smoking cessation treatment and factors associated with coverage among health and welfare funds affiliated with a large labor union. METHODS: A self-administered written survey was mailed to fund and union officials. Analyses were conducted by chi2 tests. RESULTS: Twenty-nine percent of funds provided coverage for some type of smoking cessation treatment, with the odds of coverage significantly increased among funds whose administrators reported having received members' requests for smoking cessation treatment in the past year (odds ratio = 4.9, P = .05). CONCLUSIONS: Coverage for smoking cessation services is low, comparable to coverage offered by other health insurers. Interventions with union members and fund officials are needed to provide union members with access to affordable and effective smoking cessation treatments.  (+info)

(3/78) Occupational risks in Latin America and the Caribbean: economic and health dimensions.

This study analyzes health and economic aspects of occupational safety in Latin America and the Caribbean. Work-related injuries and illnesses represent a primary health risk in the region. Specific factors negatively affect work safety in the region: the structure of the labour market, the lack of adequate resources for enforcement, prevention and research, the hazard profile, as well as the presence of vulnerable groups in the workforce. This study estimates that between 27,270 and 73,500 occupational fatal accidents occur in the region each year. It also calculates that the economic costs of these hazards represent between 2 and 4% of regional Gross Domestic Product. The paper concludes by discussing public policies that could address this problem and improve compliance with appropriate safety standards in the region.  (+info)

(4/78) The benefits divide: health care purchasing in retail versus other sectors.

This paper is the first to compare health care purchasing in the retail versus other sectors of the Fortune 500. Employing millions of low-wage workers, the retail sector is the largest employer of uninsured workers in the economy. We found that retail companies are using the same competitive bidding process that other companies use to obtain a given level of coverage for the lowest possible cost. However, they are more price oriented than other Fortune 500 companies are. The most striking disparity lies in the nearly fivefold difference in offer rates for health care coverage. This shows that the economy's bifurcation in health benefits extends even to the nation's largest companies.  (+info)

(5/78) Policy without politics: the limits of social engineering.

The extent of coverage provided by a country's health services is directly related to the level of development of that country's democratic process (and its power relations). The United States is the only developed country whose government does not guarantee access to health care for its citizens. It is also the developed country with the least representative and most insufficient democratic institutions, owing to the constitutional framework of the political system, the privatization of the electoral process, and the enormous power of corporate interests in both the media and the political process. As international experience shows, without a strong labor-based movement willing to be radical in its protests, a universal health care program will never be accepted by the US establishment.  (+info)

(6/78) Health care reform and social movements in the United States.

Because of the importance of grassroots social movements, or "change from below," in the history of US reform, the relationship between social movements and demands for universal health care is a critical one. National health reform campaigns in the 20th century were initiated and run by elites more concerned with defending against attacks from interest groups than with popular mobilization, and grassroots reformers in the labor, civil rights, feminist, and AIDS activist movements have concentrated more on immediate and incremental changes than on transforming the health care system itself. However, grassroots health care demands have also contained the seeds of a wider critique of the American health care system, leading some movements to adopt calls for universal coverage.  (+info)

(7/78) Labor rekindles reform.

The health care crisis is back. There is intensifying sentiment across the country that universal coverage is our only way out. The labor movement has used historically such opportunities for change to win health benefits at the bargaining table and strengthen the social safety net. Eighty years of incremental victories and many failed attempts at major health reform have taught labor a crucial lesson: we must build a powerful grassroots movement to drive our effort to achieve universal coverage, or it is doomed to be corrupted by those wedded to the status quo. Now is the right time for reform.  (+info)

(8/78) The role of public employers in a changing health care market.

Public employers provide health insurance coverage to nearly 16 percent of all U.S. workers. Their reactions to rapidly rising premiums can have an important effect on local markets for health insurance because of their size, their visibility, and their reflection of public policy. However, public employers are constrained in their responses by tight budgets set by elected officials and statutes regarding due process, public input, and public accountability. As insurance markets consolidate and premiums continue to increase, public employers face tough choices regarding employee benefits.  (+info)

Where do Unions stand on tattoo policies?


  • Doing a little research online it seems several unions oppose tattoo policies at the work place. Is this a normal trend for labor unions?
  • I've never looked into that but it makes sense that they would be against such polices as it is a form of discrimanation. I always feel odd saying that but really, when you have a policy like that you are discrimnating against someone's personal life choice that has nothing to do with you. although I will say that visible tattoos should be appropriate for a workplace. Meaning you shouldn't have fuck written across your knuckles or soemthing.


I engage in hard labor that's both aerobic and anaerobic-do I still need to go to the gym?


  • I work as a union laborer installing underground pipe, manholes ect and bust my butt doing it. I'm climbing, kneeling, shoveling, digging with my hands, running to the next task and don't know if going to the gym would hurt me or help me. I've searched for an answer to this question all over the web and haven't been succesful yet. I'm also approaching 50 years old, don't have any health issues but would like to continue at this kind of work for the next 15 years. Whadaya think?
  • Your body gets used to undertaking the labor you do each day, so after a while you won't be challenging the body parts you use. Going to the gym will 'shock' the body as you are doing something different and you will then benefit from that - also I don't think you get a cardio benefit from your job (ie excerising within a certain heartrate for a prolonged period of time).


Do real labor symptoms start the same if you havent had Braxton Hicks?


  • I am 33 wweks and havent felt any, other that some menstural like cramps everyonce in a while (if that even counts). I know full blown labor will hurt just the same. But I am wondering I will notice as soon that true labor is starting if I havent felt any practice contractions.
  • Trust me you will know when it is time. There is nothing that feels like true labor. With my daughter, every little ache and pain I had I went to the hospital. They would keep telling me, you will know once it happens and boy did I. Those menstrual like cramps you are having are considered BH's as well. If you start to feel them last longer than 20 seconds and have more than 6 an hour you need to call your doctor, you just may be going into labor.


Why do some women have back labor and others have front labor?


  • Is there any certain reason for this (placenta location, baby's position, etc.) or is it just up to chance? My mom likes to remind me (alot lol) that she had terrible back labor with me but with my brother, she just thought she had a sore stomach for 6 hours before she realized that she was in labor. Any reason why the two labors were so different?
  • It was explained to me that it all had to do with the position of the baby. If a baby is facing your back then it would be pushed more towards your back during a contraction. It also would not help that the baby would be kicking in that direction also and possibly trying to push back. If your baby is facing your front you would be less likely to have back labor because the baby's feet would not be towards your back and able to push in that direction. I had horrible back labor and my daughter came out head first, face down (back is what the Dr saw first).


What are ways you can naturally induce labor that is safe?


  • My doctor said if I don't go into labor this week he will induce me next week. I don't want to be induced what are some natural ways to induce labor. No castor oil my doctor said that isn't safe. Or anything that would give me the runs. And no, oh nothing will make you go into labor stuff, I understand its not likely but it cant hurt to try when im sitting around doing nothing waiting for labor right?
  • Walking can help. Sex can help, too. Semen can soften your cervix. Nipple stimulation can cause labor, also. I read somewhere that there is a muscle behind your ankle that can cause contractions. If it doesn't work, it's still a good excuse for a free foot rub :) I've also read that pineapples can trigger labor.


How was your labor and delivery different with 1st and 2nd child?


  • My son will be about 21 months old when my second is born. My son was born on his exact due date 1.) were you late, early or on time with your first? 2.) how was that different from your second? 3.) how long were you labor with your first? 4.) how long were you labor with your second? Thanks!
  • One day late with my first. Four days early with my second 12 hours labor with #1, 4 hours labor w #2 45 minutes of pushing with #1 5 pushes with #2 However, #1 was 9 lbs 6 oz, and 22.5", and #2 was 8 lbs 4 oz and 23.5" long - so #2 was an inch shorter and a pound heavier than #1. #3 was induced, 4 hrs labor, 15 minutes pushing, 10 lbs 7 oz, 21.5".


Do LABOR contractions always start when you are dilated a certain amount?


  • Can you be dilated quite a bit and still have no labor contractions? Around what amount? CM?? Thanks ladies! I thought you had to be dilated a bit at least to have contractions. I am 2 cm right now.
  • It is different for everyone but contractions are what help you to dilate along with chemicals. You can also have very strong contractions and not dilate at all. I had severe contractions my water broke and all but when I got to the hospital I was only 1cm. With my first pregnancy my contractions hadn't started yet at least not strong and when I went for my check up I was 3cm. So it really varies. If you are really concerned call you DR that's what they are there for. Good Luck!


How long before labor do you start nesting?


  • I'm 39 weeks and 4 days so I know labor is just around the corner... I just started nesting, how long before labor does that usually happen?
  • Well, everyone is different and depends on whether this is your first pregnancy or your second pregnancy, etc. However, the average time from the " nesting stage " to labor is about 2-3 weeks. But, this is not an exact figure. The sudden burst of energy is a sign that you'll soon be experiencing signs and symptoms of labor. Congrats.
