EXAMINE THE VIEW THAT DIVISION OF LABOUR BETWEEN COUPLES HAVE BEEN MORE OR LESS EQUAL. [24 MARKS] Domestic division of labour means the gender roles of men and women played in relation to housework, childcare and paid work. For example, men are expected to do more DIY work while women are expected to do the housework and take care of the child by providing emotional support to them. Some sociologists believe that families nowadays are moving towards equality and that the families are becoming symmetrical. A symmetrical family is a family where ale the chores are shared equally between couples.
The researcher conducting this study believes that employees are more productive when they have higher levels of self-esteem. To what extent does the data in Figure 1 support the researcher’s belief? Explain. The data in Figure 1 supports the researcher's belief, that employees are more productive when they have higher levels of self-esteem. It does so, by showing that the higher the employee's self-esteem the more profit is made for the company which can also show that employees are more productive.
Document 5 shows that productivity is higher and much more efficient when companies use factories to mass-produce. This perfectly shows how industry and manufacturing were taking over the states. An additional plus side to this was that businesses didn’t have to compensate as many employees because the machines do most of the work. They were obligated to pay their employees but if Looms were doing the greater percent of work, they save more money because you can’t pay a machine to work. This soon started to develop rapidly.
1. Which of Schwartz’s ten values are driving the behavior of managers at Bain & Co., Home Depot, and Best Buy? Provide examples to support your conclusions. Response: In the case of Home Depot, Benevolence and Universalism was one of the most salient values being exhibited – there is loyalty on behalf of Frank Blake towards is team in wanting to take care of them during the market downturn by lowering the sales and profit targets that hourly employees were to meet to receive bonuses. It translated in a great response that generated a higher amount of achievement by the staff than ever before, here we see Security at play since there is a reciprocity (“You take care of me, I take care of you”).
Buss (1989) found females select resource rich, ambitious men, supporting this idea and demonstrating how mate selection by females can enhance their parental investment by increasing the survival chances of their offspring. Another explanation is that females invest more because males have less parental certainty; or that females are less likely to have more offspring in the future (Gross and Sargent, 2005). Gross and Shine (1981) found with internal fertilization that parental care is carried out by females in 86% species, while with external fertilization parental care is carries out by males in 70% of species, supporting these predictions based on paternal certainty. However, Krebs and Davies (1981) report that it isn’t always true that external fertilization leads to increased paternal certainty. In sunfishes, cuckoldry occurs during the female’s egg positioning.
The tests used to gather this data was the chi-square fitness of good and Willcoxon. The results for each hypothesis rejected the null hypotheses. Introduction There has been a lot of evidence that many people believe that males and females who are thought of as being attractive are generally more sociable, balanced, and more successful. This belief has become known as the Halo effect; the inclination for one exceptional trait to unjustifiably influence an overall impression. This idea was first supported by Edward L. Thorndike in 1920 in a psychology study.
This high level of quality performed by Steinway’s employees is why I believe the cost argument can be related. Steinway has coped with diversity and therefore has more productive employees who want to go to work. This, in turn, results in higher quality products and overall productivity of the company. As for the resource acquisition argument, Steinway has been known to employ many immigrant workers since the time they began (Denisi & Griffin, 2014, pp. 194).
According to Freidman, Globalization 3.0 is individuals and small groups globalizing. Because of this, the world flattening and individuals are becoming empowered. Also, Globalization 3.0 is different from previous ones because individuals rather than countries and companies are empowered but because “Globalization 3.0 is driven by a much more diverse -- non-Western, nonwhite -- group of individuals.” (Freidman 6) Balram demonstrates his first step to empowerment in a flat world by receiving his first job. Balram received his first job from Mukesh Sir due to equality, “All out employees are top caste. It won’t hurt to have one or two bottom castes working for us.” (54-55) Friedman argues that even non- Western and nonwhite
Job satisfaction has also been found to be positively related to life, while family satisfaction and life satisfaction have also been found to be considerably related. The relationship between job and family satisfaction was also examined by Crouter and Perry-Jenkins (1986), who found that when parents had high job satisfaction they also showed high family satisfaction. Children of these parents were also found to role better, in general, and then compared to children of parents not satisfied with their
For example, why do upper-class white males typically have more opportunities for wealth and success compared to lower-class black males, who have a higher chance of landing in the criminal justice system? Two Main Theories of Social Inequality There are two main views of social inequality within sociology. One view aligns with the functionalist theory and the other aligns with conflict theory. Functionalist theorists believe that inequality is inevitable and desirable and plays an important function in society. Important positions in society require more training and thus should receive more rewards.
