71: Sexual Harassment
... harassment and condition of work harassment. Quid pro quo harassment describes a situation in which a person in authority, typically a male, requires sexual favors from an employee, typically a female, in return for an employment advantage, such as getting hired, getting promoted, obtaining better working conditions, or not getting fired. Condition of work harassment, also known as environment or workplace harassment, is less direct, and arises when an employee is subjected to requests for sexual favors, sexual comments or sexual insults, but no negative employment consequences follow from the employee's refusal to accede to the demands made on her. Sexual Harassment can be defined as an unwelcome sexual advance, requests for sexual favors and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. These constitute sexual harassment when submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly based on a term or condition of an individual's employment. Submission to, or rejection of, such contact by an individual is used as the basis for employment decisions affecting such individual. Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual' ...

... a big surprise for many economists in 1996. Over the past months the reports showed the economy doing quite well.

President Clinton is trying to create new jobs to get everyone earning real wages. People want to know that he is opening job opportunities but he also does not want full employment.

74: Cuban Trade Sanctions And Effe
... the Cuban government began to allow private citizens to offer certain services under strict government scrutiny. Then in 1997, they introduced heavy taxes that forced many of these people out of business. In this sector, employment peaked at 206,000 in 1996, and then fell to 170,000 in 1997. The Cuban government has actively encouraged foreign investment, but forbids private investment by Cuban citizens, leaving it hostile to private enterprise ... sanctioned products and even beyond the time period in which the sanctions are imposed. Jobs in the export sector of the economy tend to pay better than the average wages. Thus even in the full employment economy that the U.S. is enjoying now, the loss of exports still means a loss in wages—the export wage sector premium. The export sector wage premium is about 12 to 15 percent, taking into account both direct and indirect employment. In 1995, the average salary in the manufacturing sector was about $34,020, so the premium paid by the export sector was about $4080 per worker (12% of $34,020). What these figures mean ...

... was beneficial, but the ego's that were involved were more than I could deal with at that time.I enjoyed the job greatly but the pay was not steady.

However I just kept on applying anywhere I could find that would let me. My neighbor from across ... additional job as supervisor for a weekly news publication. Responsibilities included hiring, firing, checking the routes, as well as distributing papers to 40 carriers and distributing payroll once a month. I was hoping to find employment that would pay the same without all the overtime. One of my wifes cousins worked at APTUS in Coffeyville he said could help get me a job there. He did as he said and, in ... seemed agitated and was sure to let workers know how they felt. The union was voted out and, shortly afterward, they started layoffs. I happened to be in those numbers. While I was looking for employment, I started taking night classes at the local community college. Jobs in this area were very scarce in the late 80 s.

... the intention of ensuring job protection or heightening services made available to the mass public. In 1993, government was the third largest sector of the economy, which was a significant amount of GDP and total employment [LatinFinance, March 1994].

... saw more women employees than ever. The nineteen forties, fifties, and sixties were some of the most prosperous times for the working class.
