They do not want the bosses son, Curly, to get angry. They simply can't afford to lose their job during a depression. Steinbeck uses many different techniques to present Curley’s wife such as colour imagery, appearance, metaphors and similes in the early stages of the novel. The effect of these techniques is that the reader creates a mental image of Curley’s wife even before she even enters the novel. Steinbeck initially presents Curley’s wife in a negative manner.
I will be looking at sources to see if this was true. Source 1 states that this may be true for some people but not others. It was good for businessmen, speculators, retiring company directors. For them the source agrees that they never had it so good. However the source goes on to criticise the statement saying that it isn’t good for “widowed mother with children, the chronic sick, 400,000 unemployed and millions of pensioners without pensions.” Therefore I can infer that the source doesn’t agree with the statement as it states that there is a clear majority of people who don’t benefit within this time period, mainly the people who are benefitting are from the upper classes.
4. Give an example of irony. (3 marks) An example of irony is found in the tenth paragraph stating, “Ironically, it wasn’t the demented mother who wound up in therapy; it was the fortysomething HR person whose endless hassles with Gen Y workers and their nanny parents finally pushed her over the edge”. It is ironic because Gen Y whom have too much self esteem and ego, and their parents who protect them aren’t the ones getting therapy but has turned the table to the HR worker who just could not deal with Gen Y workers and their over protective parents. 5.
I do not feel the Toy Company has violated any employee rights because of the four days on four days off schedule that has been implemented. The employee cannot prove we made the work environment so intolerable to his or her religious beliefs. In the case of Duffy v. Paper Magic Group, the plaintiff states she was constructively discharged based on a pattern of discrimination (Duffy, 2008). She claims she was passed over for promotion for a younger employee and that superiors made comments regarding her age. Evidence showed that she had several promotions while being employed and that her job performance were averages.

Audio Conference: Cupid in the Cubicles: The Supervisor’s Role in Managing Workplace Romance Issues Potential legal liability When office romances go well, they can lead to long-lasting relationships. But when love in the workplace goes sour, it may expose the company to potential
Both would also seem to be in agreement that this disparity should be remedied. Although Tong literally attacks Summers, she seems to slip up at times and she actually confirms some of his speculations. She does this, for example, by stating that women are hesitant to work 80 hours weeks immediately after characterizing this as an ignorant argument. It seems that Tong simply wants the issue to be about discrimination, which is a valid point, but she does so by censoring the opinions of others and by denying even the remotest possibility that Summers might have even one legitimate observation. The contrasts are so evident as to make the similarities pale in comparison and it would seem that the real issues will never be solved unless people can communicate more effectively than Summers and
An additional factor is sexual harassment in the workplace. We all are aware that men in high positions are likely to use their power to create sexual advancements to the women they oversee. I to have been a victim of this type of behavior and was not advance because I wasn’t receptive to the quid pro quo which means “one thing in return for another”! (Macionis, pg. 291) Many women just as I was are afraid of losing their job if they report sexual harassment.
Many people kill every day, but should they all be held accountable for it? John Steinbeck’s novel contains many conflicts, but a main issue in Of Mice and Men, revolves around two characters, Lennie, a migrant worker with mental issues, and Curley’s wife, the wife of the bosses son. Lennie should not be accountable for killing Curley’s wife because Lennie is not all mentally there, and she provokes Lennie by demanding him to touch her hair in the first place. There are many reasons why Lennie is not to blame for his actions, one is because he appears to be slow in the head and has a very child-like mentality. In the text it states, “Lennie dabbled his paw in the water and wiggled his fingers so the water arose in little splashes...Lennie watched them go, ‘look, George.
Masking Poor Communication Amber Jackson COM 200 Prof. Rosa-Fay Milnar October 14, 2013 Masking Poor Communication Having an unhealthy communication with family, friends or even strangers can lead to an unhealthy relationship. Reflecting on this article, I have to agree with what was written. Whether we have been married for twenty years or been dating someone for two years, getting close to someone we sometimes forget that miscommunication can occur with any type of situation. When you get close to someone you just assume that everything each one is saying is being understood. When miscommunication happens in a relationship, both parties can become angry all because of the miscommunication.
