Compared to California’s education demographics, San Leandro has a higher percentage of high school graduate, but a lower percentage of higher educational attainment compared to the entire nation (bachelor’s degree or higher). Using Thompson and Hickey’s model for social class in the United States (2005), my family would be considered working class. This is defined as “clerical, pink and blue collar workers with often low job security; common household incomes range from $16,000 to $30,000 [and] high school education” (Thompson et al., 2005). My mother currently works as a part-time waitress and is going to community college to receive an associate’s degree in accounting. My father has been working as a full-time cook at a Chinese restaurant in Oakland Chinatown for about 25 years. His highest level of educational attainment is high school. These racial and social class demographics are important in understanding my social location.

The city of Irvine has been named the safest city in America for two years in a row. This kind of environment is perfect for families whom want to raise their children in a safe environment. Irvine had a total urban population of 236,716 people in 2013, where 113,412 (47.9%) are males and 123,304 (52.1%) are females. The population has immensely increased by about 65.5% since 2013. The median age of Irvine residents is 34.8 years, which is quite similar to the California median age of 35.7 years. The estimated median household income for the residents in 2013 was $87,830, the estimated per capita income was $40,216, and the estimated median house/condo value was of $662,000. All of these values have been increasing since 2000, thus the overall living quality of Irvine’s residents has been increasing over time. The ethnicities of the city are: 44.3% white, 38.6% Asian, 11.8% Hispanic, 3.4% two or more races, 1.4% black, 0.4% others, 0.06% Indian and 0.01% Hawaiian/other Pacific Islander.

Legal, Safety, and Regulatory Requirements Paper HCS 341 Legal, Safety, and Regulatory Requirements Paper The workplace is a delicate environment filled with different personalities types. These differing needs of feeling safe and comfortable create many challenges in the workplace. The creation of the Human Resource Department has helped create a safety net for all employees to fall under and create a stable environment for employees to feel safe and secure. Regulations such as Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Department of Labor have in some ways removed the common sense and compassion in the workplace and replaced it with litigation. The effect of these regulations have balanced the workplace and created a more
Ethnicity and Socioeconomics The population of Hendersonville consists mostly of white or Caucasian individuals as illustrated in Figure 6 below.

Table 2 Gender Totals and percentages Gender and age Percent Number Female Total 50.4% 49,140 Female 15-29 13.1% 12,900 Female 30-44 10.2% 9,951 Male Total 49.6% 48,331 Male 15-29 When looking at the data I see that the structure of the area is leaving some groups below others and having opportunities that others don’t. Especially when looking at the area of education people of the White race are attaining degrees and a much higher rate than individuals of Hispanic or African American races. This lack of educational attainment is giving the two races that are achieving degrees’ higher chances of advancing further in the social structure. This could be because people of those races not are bringing in the income that the others are. The very reason of education could be the cause of these people not bringing in the income they need to attain the degrees or jobs they wish to hold. Another area of inequality is the issue with housing in the area. Individuals are renting at a greater percent meaning with lack of income they are not able to purchase a house, in turn renting

The hot topic of inequality is a widespread issue within the United States and many other countries alike. The gap appears to be continually expanding between the extremely wealthy and the extremely impoverished. The author states that, “To really grasp the essential meaning of economic inequality requires examining how income is measured in relation to demographic changes, geographic differences, and shifting fortunes over the life course” (Gilbert 11). Determining exactly how inequality works, and is measured, becomes very difficult when considering all that plays into a viable resolution. In addition, the diverse differences that exist for income expenditures from state to state play a major role. For example, “...when regional price differences
