The author of the article goes on to say that people in the US are sentenced to do time for crimes that would not produce such a sentence in other countries. According to another article in the New York Times (2008), states spend close to ten percent of their budget on corrections (Liptak &, 2008). In 2007 alone, states spend close to $45 million tax dollars. Not only is simply housing an inmate costly, but healthcare also provides a financial burden. In 1998, the states paid a little over seven dollars a day per inmate for healthcare (Kinsella, 2004).
| Math 103 Final Project – Parts 1, 2, and 3 | | | Math 103 Instructor: Toni Robertson December 11, 2010 Math 103 Instructor: Toni Robertson December 11, 2010 Part 1: 1a. What is the shortest loan (36 months, 48 months, 60 months or 72 months) that has a monthly payment within your $500 budget that will allow you to buy the $15,000 car? Answer: Through Bank of America, I found a rate of 2.99% for the 36, 48 and 60 month loans. We are able to put down 20% and will need to finance $12,000. The shortest loan period for the $15,000 car that would be under our $500 limit is the 36 month loan at a rate of $348.93 per month.

According to the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, an employee who works more than the maximum of forty hours per weeks must be paid no less than 1.5 times his/her regular pay rate for all hours over forty (Hollowell & Miller, 2012). The FLSA takes concern in child labor laws, minimum wages, and overtime provisions. Overtime is usually referred to as “time and a half”, which means you are paid one and a half times the hourly rate for each hour worked over the forty hour limit. In this case, I only achieved more than forty hours for the first two weeks. Since I am a non-exempt employee, I have to be paid minimum wage: $7.25 as of July 24, 2009 (Hollowell & Miller, 2012).

This is the process of negotiations between the employers and a group of employees. Some effects that this may have on the company is if the employees do not get what they want, they may go on
According to the American Medical Association, the yearly salary for the average dermatologist totals about $221,000, only to subsidize the lied back 46-hour weeks. This lifestyle doesn’t only pay such a ponderous amount but it is substantially less time consuming than any internal medicine job out there. The general surgeon averages $238,000 a year, but almost works themselves to death with a killer 60-hour week, leaving them almost no time for a life outside of work. Internal medicine jobs have some of the highest paying professions in the medical field, but for a lot of these jobs, the adverse hours and the off the clock emergencies just don’t seem to excite students like they used to.
