Not a man, of course. Back then men were viewed as superior because that’s all they were ever taught. “It takes a lot of dishes and a lot of washing up, for mum to build an athlete” (Fairy Liquid and the Olympics) this reinforces the idea that women do the household chores in service to the males of the house. The implication that housework is purely a woman’s work is completely unacceptable in today’s day and age where women are seen as strong and independent. The unequal distribution of domestic responsibilities has held women back for generations; it still today continues to hinder women’s progression in the work-place.
My Boss, L.J. Watkins, wants to cut cost because of increased competition from another firm and some changes have already been made. Before these change Watkins Co. had a relatively laid back atmosphere in which supervisors did not frequently push or confront employees that often. Wages were considered low for the area and as a result workers would work overtime to make up for their low pay. They were unsupervised during these overtime hours and reportedly were very productive.
This put women at a disadvantage because they would not be able to pick up and move as easily as men. Wal-Mart would also waive minimum required qualifications to retain employees, a way of bypassing the promotion process. Wal-Mart pride itself on strong organizational culture that is based on respect for the individual, service to the customer, and strive for excellence. The company published letters praising individual employees for outstanding service. Wal-Mart managers public stated that women associates are paid less than men because they had to provide for their families.
B. I can't say no to friends or family members if he or she asks for my help: Since I come from a culture where people help each other a lot without seeing benefit for themselves in it. I can’t say no to people because I feel it’s good to help and to be nice and helpful to them. Sometimes I do think they take me for granted. Since I usually go to pick up lunch from restaurants at work from my friends, when asked others have started in my group have saying no knowing that I am not going to deny it and will go anyway. C.

Unit 7 Assignment MT 140 Intro to Management Dalman feels he is spending way too much time trying to solve minor problems in the business and feels that these things should be left for the operational managers to solve. Self-managed teams are teams where workers are trained to do all or most of the jobs in the unit, they have no immediate supervisor, and they make decisions previously made by first-line supervisors (BATEMAN. (2013). M: Management [VitalSouce bookshelf version]). Self-managed teams offer a number of advantages that could be used at Sandwich Blitz; including stronger commitment, employee and customer satisfaction, improved quality, enhanced efficiency, and faster product and service development.
It was not a bad job, I met some great people and the work environment was great as well. Having never dealt with customers or even working a cash register, I caught on pretty quick and was able to handle the holiday rush with the team. Although, having to keep a smile on my face while customers were complaining about not having an item in stock was difficult but I managed to still be courteous. After a couple months of that job, I got hired at Best Buy as a cashier. Since having experience as a cashier from my previous job, I thought this job would be much easier, but I was wrong.
They could try to get another job since the local unemployment rate was low, but still they couldn’t leave their company and their leader but above all, their friends. As stated in the text, leaving the company would mean leaving their co-workers that were actually friends (“At how many offices would everyone show up twenty minutes before starting time just to catch up with friends on other crews?”) and Ong, that was more than their leader, their boss. She was a friend (“They never thought of her as the boss or called her anything but Myta”). This leads us to another part of what we learned in class: the effect of leaders in culture. We can say that Ong implemented this organizational culture and friendly atmosphere in Plant World since the beginning, as mentioned before.
However, and this is where the Equity Theory comes into play; my hard work (input) is not reflected in my pay (outcome), this is especially true when I compare myself to my co-worker Kelly. Kelly started at Metro one year after I did, she began as a cashier, then a customer service representative and was then asked to become a front end supervisor just as I was, however; Kelly was given a larger raise then I when she became supervisor. When I first heard how much she was making per hour I was very upset, it seemed incredibly unfair that she be paid more for doing the same work. I became more and more dissatisfied the longer I thought about it and it was beginning to make me not want to work for the company anymore. I kept asking myself, how could someone who had been with the company less time and had less seniority then I get paid more than me?
She did not want to attend to it so she let her assistant manager handle it. As she thought more about it, she felt her assistant was out to get her position at the Riverwood Mall. So she decided to attend to the angry customer herself. Overall, this case gives readers insight into the life of an individual in a managerial position. It showed some of her positive and negative attributes she went through.
They now can make money on their own instead of just being dependent upon the money supply of their parents. They learn how to use their money effectively, because when making money by themselves, they know how difficult it is to earn for living. For example, before having a job, a girl was dependent on her parents’ money for her living expense. She didn’t know the difficulty of making money. But now working as a waitress in a restaurant, she realizes it’s hard to earn money and begins to use her money more efficiently.
