... emands rested upon prevailing norms of workers' interests and power. Since World War II, labor leaders have placed a disproportionate amount of emphasis on economic gains, and the collective bargaining process has gravitated toward these areas. At the same time, management has carefully guarded its prerogatives from the bargaining process.24 In this context, it seems likely that in envisioning a future strike, controllers felt that wages could and should be one aspect of it.

- Alcatraz Island And Prison - 1,993 words
Alcatraz Island And Prison Alcatraz Island has quite a distinct history. Many people know that Alcatraz served as a federal prison, but most are reluctant to know that this island served as fort. Built before the Civil War, it served two main purposes. First, that it was to guard the San Francisco bay area from enemy ships against a foreign invasion, and second, to hold hostage prisoners of war or POW's as they were called. In this report, I'll show you how this fortress came to be a federal prison, why it is no longer in operation today, and most importantly, to show why it was built in the first place. When the great Gold Rush of 1849 first started, California grew from what would be consi ...

Idaho Legislature 2000 Project The Idaho Legislature held its first session in 1890. At that time the legislature was composed of 18 senators and 36 representatives.

According to Idaho state law, each legislative session is to begin on the Monday clo ...

- Stop Seeking Certainty Minows Response To Bork - 1,089 words
... s. To deny this effect is to delude ourselves. This is the reason that I hold the view that impartiality is a myth. Our socialization is integral to our being, we are humans, not machines, and as such are not immune from our inner stereotypes, prejudices and beliefs. In addition, Minow points out that true objectivity would require a "God's eye view" , that is, a view which is capable of seeing everything at once. This kind of view is obviously unattainable by humans, and as Minow points out "those who claim it are untruthful" (Minow, pp. 171). Third, the Borkian view, in it's quest for impartiality shows a distinct preference for deference to the legislature, and in doing so fails to be ...
