The issue is an important one as it affects millions of people around the world, as well as having a huge impact on thousands of other companies and businesses; both national and worldwide. It will also assess how much of an impact the media has on people, which in this day and age is a very important issue. If it were to be greater explored then there is a good chance that the same methods could be applied to other businesses, companies and football leagues around the globe in order to boost their presence on the market. According to Nauright and Ramjford (2010), the Americanisation of the English
➢ The change of US labor market It is believed that the US labor market will experience dramatic changes over the next 20 years. According to the survey, the rate of growth in the working population is expected to slow each year between now and 2020. Also, the skill shortage in the US labor market is become more and more obvious, especially for those new economy and high-tech jobs. Therefore, the change of US labor market forced the domestic companies strives to look for qualified workforce across the world. ➢ Technology Technology revolution inevitably becomes the driving force to use virtual workforce.
In the present era of fast growing economy, a critical relationship has been formed between work and non-work (home) life. People are inclined towards longer working hours (of average 100,000 of their lives) to build career and automatically their job title identify them. The Office for National Statistics reported, increase in dual-income families and single parents, which enhanced this relationship. The Interference by both factors affected each other negatively. These negative effects have been well discussed in literature: organizational impact such as increased absence and decreased job performance; individual impact such as reduced life satisfaction and increased physical and physiological pressure (Beauregard, 2011).
It has to do with a person’s willingness to work hard, and I think it’s always been that way” (Scott and Leonhardt 2005:5). There are many arguments within the book that describe why class does matter in America today. One argument is the argument that the upper class lives longer than those individuals in classes below them. This is because individuals with a lot of capital have better insurance and means to pay for treatments and medical attention, where the lower class is unable to pay for medical treatment. As quoted in the book, “As advances in medicine and disease prevention have increased life expectancy in the United States, the benefits have disproportionately gone to people with education, money, good jobs, and connections” (Scott 2005:29).
Poetic Comparisons of Identity and Race In the melting pot of America, topics of race and ethnicity are part of a national discussion. The population of the United States has never been more diverse than it is now. These demographic changes have already changed the nation's past and will most certainly continue to shape its future. The diversity of our population contributes to how we as Americans see ourselves. The constant evolution of society, the changing attitudes and perceptions in regards to race and ethnicity, socioeconomics and where we live, adds to each American's human experience and creates a unique culture all our own.
This current population growth trend began with the initiation of the Immigration Act of 1965 from the massive immigration of both legal and illegal immigrants entering the United States over the past forty years. Accounting for nearly 4.5% of the world's population, America is the third largest, fastest growing, consisting of infinitely more diverse cultures than any other country throughout the world (Heisler & Shrestha, 2011). The constant human quest for economic opportunities in recent decades has increased the flow of economic refugees to the United States putting an enormous strain on America's public institutions and social services. Furthermore, the political turmoil in existence globally increases the flow of political refugees seeking asylum and sanctuary. Refugees from the Vietnam (Military Action) War, my family and I have first-hand experience of the discriminations and prejudices held by Americans toward foreigners when we first immigrated to the United States in 1975 following the fall of Saigon.
One way American cultural imperialism affects the world is by redefining cultures and creating cultural diversity. Cultural diversity can be defined as “the variety of human societies or cultures in a specific region, or in the world as a whole.” In other words, cultures all over the world are seeing their principles and traditions change considerably. As a case in point, today English has become the world’s common language. Many schools, outside the United States, are teaching English as a second language. English is also highly demanded in the business world.
Pros and Cons of An Aeging Population An ageing population can be useful to society in some areas of development but at the same time it is argued that it can also cause a considerable amount of strain to the working class and hinder government expenditure. For instance, in Britain the increase in of people over 60 is estimated to rise by 40% in the next 30 years and 13 million people are estimated to be over 65 in 2030, which in effect will be putting more strain on the government as this is when pensions are received. Moreover in 1951 there were only 300 people in Britain aged over 100 and by 2031 it’s expected this figure will be at 36,000 proving that due to an improvement in health care people are living for longer. At the same time, fertility is set to fall as women leave childbirth later and later because of their careers, meaning in the foreseeable future there will be fewer young people supporting a growing elderly population As the population ages, the ratio of non-workers to workers increases, assuming that retirement ages do not change sufficiently to offset the rise in life expectancy. In 2004, there were approximately 4 working age individuals (aged 20-64) for every 1 person aged 65 and over.
New entrants face a steadily increasing minimum efficient scale of production, meaning that more and more of a niche is required to achieve any economies of scale. Rivalry among established companies: Rivalry is high evidenced by the small number of competitors. Demand conditions are volatile based on economic and global issues. Bargaining power of buyers: Where large corporations and distributors can force price concessions, this can be considered a threat in the steel industry. Consumers themselves have a high level of bargaining power as they can be particularly pricesensitive in the volatile industry.
The increasing effects of globalization, too, provide a platform for change into the coming century. What seems to be the most confusing aspect of these fundamental changes in the family structure is how quickly they have taken place, and continue to occur? This paper will review several readings and will provide an analysis of how the family unit is changing and what impact this may have in the future. Review of the Literature The comforting family images of “Father Knows Best,” “Ozzie and Harriet,” and “Leave it to Beaver,” helped to characterize the popular image of the American family for many people. The father worked, the mother vacuumed in high heels and pearls and the kids were sometimes mischievous but basically good.
