Understanding the reasons that workers join unions has been a subject of scholarly debate for decades. This critical review examines an article that discusses a segment of an under-represented unionized workforce: Women. The article, “The Influences on Women Joining and Participating in Unions” (2005) was written by Gill Kirton, a professor at Queen Mary, University of London. The author explores why women join and participate in unions through analyzing four influences: family, union, work and feminism. Relying on qualitative data from a study of women in two male-dominated UK unions carried out between 1999 and 2002, the article maintains that family background, gendered experiences in both unions and the workplace, as well as feminist beliefs and values all combine to shape women’s union orientations in complex ways.

Reishunda McShane Diversity in the United States with African Americans in Leadership roles The workplace increasingly is more diverse than ever before. For decades African Americans, women, and many minorities were excluded from participating in most of the desirable jobs and institutions. Even when declared unconstitutional, the discrimination against minority groups often persisted. Although some work organizations are making progress in their efforts to combat discrimination, African Americans particularly still face a series of unique problems imposed on them through the complex interactions of racially motivated negative attitudes and actions of individual and organizational policies and practices not encountered by Caucasians.
Discrimination against the American White Male Gayle Whitfield Axia College of the University of Phoenix Discrimination against the American White Male The oppression of women and minorities springs to mind when we think of the word, “discrimination.” After all, women struggled for years for equality and minorities fought long and hard to overcome the disadvantages that have been associated with race. Due to social engineering, discrimination against the white male is a subject which has been tagged by our society as taboo and has largely been ignored, but there is a fact which remains. Companies not in compliance with Executive Order 11246 must hire women and minorities to reach percentage “goals” which
I enjoyed the book because it was interesting, and it also wasn’t written like a regular nonfiction book, where all they state are the facts and the reasoning to support it. Enrique’s Journey is about a mother and her children that were apart for 11 years and the struggles that they went through to get back together and become a family. When Enrique was 5 years old, Lourdes left him and his sister Belky, who was 7 to live with their grandmother while she went to America to find a job and to make money. When she left, it was 1989, and she promised to go back to Honduras where they lived after one year in America. Lourdes paid a smuggler 3,000 dollars to get her from Honduras to Orlando Florida, but he left her one night promising to come back, but he

When women began to enter the major areas of the workplace in the late 19th century and 20th centuries they faced many different obstacles they would have to overturn. Since the beginning of history, women have been looked down upon by men and seen as inferior and a class below them. After women began to gain social and political rights this terrible idea of sexism was beginning to change. When women began to enter the workforce they were beginning to challenge and change many of the social norms of previous years. They were pushing for equal rights and became emancipated by their ability to work and their new social powers.
