16 – 56 Ethics and Standard Costs Farmer Frank’s produces items from local farm products and distributes them to supermarkets. Over the years, price competition has become increasingly important, so Susan Kramer, the company’s controller, is planning to implement a standard cost system for Farmer Frank’s. She asked her cost accountant, Margaret Chang, to gather cost information on the production of blueberry preserves (Farmer Frank’s most popular product). Margaret reported that blueberries cost $.75 per quart, the price she intends to pay to her good friend who has been operating a blueberry farm that has been unprofitable for the last few years. Because of an oversupply in the market, the price for blueberries has dropped to $.60 per quart.

Double burden was also common at the beginning of 1900’s as women worked to earn money but also had the responsibility for unpaid, domestic labor.

Recognition Ruined In The Road Henry’s wife, Elisa was intelligent and passionate about her gardening and having the well known qualities of being a woman and wife, although she lived a unsatisfying and under stimulated life, in which her husband didn’t know of.

Back when I was younger, I’d say from the age of 2 until about 13, we lived in the house on the corner with a giant plum tree in the backyard. My grandma owned the house two doors down, my cousins Mickie, Dannie and Cam were kitty corner to us and my other cousins, Penny & Tarin, lived in the house directly across the street.
