Board of Education, was a high school teacher at Township High School District 205, Will County, Illinois. He sent a letter to the local newspaper exposing the Boards allocation of funds for the school. In his letter he criticized them for putting forth more money to the athletic programs than to the educational programs .In court he argued that his writing of the letter was protected by the First and Fourteenth Amendments, yet supposedly the letter contained fabricated statements and was going to disturb the schools positive progress and administration.

In return, Iqbal, 4 years old at the time, had to work for the employer that provided the family with the money. In other words, Iqbal was sold off to the employer. This system of loans is very unfair and the employer has all the control. Iqbal was required to work 16 hours a day in a carpet weaving factory. The food he ate was added to the original loan.
The contract states that Rose must give Sagle a 60 day written notice and pay the 10,000 fee for that period. Rose believes that Sagle violated the contract by providing services for Anderson Luxury Motors, which is a company that provides automotive mechanic services. The contract states that Sagle has the right to provide services for the other businesses during the period of the contract except for any company engaged in Roses principle area of business which is automotive design and manufacturing. I agree with Rose, Sagle has violated the contract because Anderson Luxury Motors is still an automotive company. The contract for the IT system maintenance will be terminated immediately.
For such unethical behavior I would create a system to fix the work environments sanitation, and raise the wages to minimum wage for the workers. Nike did create a code, which is called SHAPE: Safety, Health, Attitude, People, and Environment. The code, adhering to regulations for fire safety, air quality, minimum wage, and overtime limits (Brause, Alberto). Other companies like Wal Mart typically pays its sales associates, cashiers, team leaders, and overnight stocker’s 26-37% less than the national average for the same jobs in the retail industry. There have also been reports of teenagers in Bangladesh working in sweatshops 80 hours per week at $0.14 per hour (Barstow, David).
Iowa Supreme Court orders furlough on Monday Associated Press February 16, 2009 DES MOINES, Iowa - The Iowa Supreme Court is closing all state court offices on Monday to save money during tough budget times. The decision to close the court on President’s Day means an unpaid day for about 1,600 employees at a savings of more than $335,000. Judges and magistrates are the only court employees who will work on the furlough day because their salaries are set by the Legislature and handled separately. The furlough is planned for President’s Day because it’s a federal holiday when court officials anticipate less impact on the public because other government agencies also are closed. Gov.
Think about this: The governor of Massachusetts, the superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police, the mayor of Boston, the Boston police commissioner and the head of the Boston FBI office all proclaimed on Saturday morning that the danger had passed and Boston and its suburbs could return to normal. Yet the attorney general in Washington told his FBI agents in Boston to disregard those officials and instead pretend that the public safety was still jeopardized and then expand a 10-second window to 72 hours. The Constitution was written to preserve freedom by restraining the government. The courts from time to time have required the government to respect the natural law, as well. But when the attorney general arbitrarily changes the law to suit the demands of the people when they are weeping, it fundamentally undermines our freedoms.
Job protections in a union contract are identified as scope language; these items define what work is legal and what the company can contract out. For example, at US Airways back in 2004, the airline decided to contract out the overhaul of ten airplanes. Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement is legally protected work and not vendors. The employees’ union at the time went to court and got a Temporary Restraining Order to stop the work, and then it was remanded to arbitration. The outcome of the case was the company violated the union contract and the workers had to be paid and the work brought back in-house.
This claim can be supported by the Debs v. United States case, which took time during World War I. Eugene V Debs held a speech praising those who refused to serve in the military and obstructed recruitment - as a result he was sentenced ten years in prison. By Eugene holding his speech he is showing support for the enemy. Justice Katelyn asked a question regarding the Cohen v. California case in which a boy was protected by his First Amendment rights for wearing a shirt that said “stop the draft.” The question was directed towards United States attorneys Jacob Gore and Tyler Kerwin; the question presented was “If Paul Cohen was protected by his First Amendment rights for expressing his feelings against the draft, how does it differ from Charles Schenk expressing his feelings against the draft via social media?” Once again, United States attorneys disregarded the question and searched for loopholes to avoid a solid

The Rights Of Inmates Olanda Tyler Everest College Phoenix Introduction to Corrections CJC2000 Instructor: John Kuivila Saturday, March 1, 2014 The nature and extent of the privileges afforded to individuals kept in custody or confinement against their will because they have been convicted of performing an unlawful act. For most of U.S. history, the treatment of prisoners was left entirely to the discretion of prison administrators. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the federal courts began to oversee state prison systems and develop a body of law dealing with prisoners' rights. During the 1980s, however, a more conservative Supreme Court limited prisoners' rights, and, in the 1990s, Congress enacted laws that severely restricted litigation and post-conviction appeals by prisoners. Two statutes enacted during the 104th Congress have had a significant effect on the federal court's treatment of prisoners who seek to bring claims against prison officials.
