User: Sam works as a driver for Toxic Games Warehouse, a wholesale distributor and online retailer of video games and accessories. Over a ten-year period, Sam repeatedly applies for and is denied a promotion to the position of dispatcher. Sam meets the requirements for the job, which are a years driving experience and a specific license. After one interview, Sam overhears the interviewer tell a co-worker that Sam, who is white, didn't get the job because whites are lazy. Is this employment discrimination? Explain.





Weegy: Discrimination in the workplace negatively affects businesses in that discriminatory policies can hurt a company's reputation. A business self-limits itself when it restricts advancement to certain groups or types of employees. [ Speaking negatively about a former employee can be damaging for a potential client. There is also a direct correlation between loyalty, retention, and discrimination. Employees are more likely to be looking for new jobs when they feel they have been wronged. According to a report on discrimination at the workplace by the International Labour Organization, “workplace discrimination remains a persistent global problem, with new, more subtle forms emerging.”[3] Sending wrong signals to potential clients can also cause conflict because customers can sense when employees aren't enthusiastic or don't believe in their company. This is one reason that it is important for a job applicant to observe the attitudes of people they wish to work with. Sending positive signals to employees attracts future potential employees. Inequalities suffered by discriminated groups spreads. Due to affirmative action policies, a new middle class has been created that consists of formerly discriminated people in some countries but in others, people who are from discriminated groups are frequently involved in the worst jobs, denied benefits, capital, land, social protection, training, or credit. Discrimination at a workplace can lead to poverty. “Discrimination creates a web of poverty, forced and child labor and social exclusion, (seeking to eliminate discrimination is indispensable to any strategy for poverty reduction and sustainable economic development).”[3] ]

Choose a side: Either you are "pro" and believe students should be graded on effort Or you are "con" and believe students should still be evaluated only on performance
Weegy: I believe students should be evaluated on performance. The performance itself is a reflection of the efforts made. If the efforts are enough, the performance is great. [ If the efforts seem enough but the performance is lacking, it's possible that there's something wrong with the preparation. ] (More)

What types of benefits and downfalls could you see happening with this type of policy? What impacts could it have on the population both scientifically and socially?

Weegy: China's 'one child policy' is what you're talking about. Currently china has around 1.3bn people - around 1/5 of all people - perhaps 1/6 depending what world pop' figure you believe. Without the policy the population of china would be just over [ 2.5bn (assuming rates of growth just before the policy continued and didn't end up causing huge social unrest) The benefits would be that the country would have a huge defence against attack - ...
