Taking a look into the ways of her household solidified the fact that housewives were set apart from their counterparts because of their responsibilities. Their knack for multi-tasking and running a home efficiently was never held to very high standards. Now, with a look into these three women’s homes, it seems that everyone should take with them the notion that no matter the woman’s wealth or social status, her work in the home is pivotal to the success of her family.
Women for years have been automatically given the role of the domestic housewife, where their only job is to cook, clean, and take care of the children. Men have usually taken the primary responsibility for economic support and contact with the rest of society, while women have traditionally taken the role of providing love, nurturing, emotional support, and maintenance of the home. However, in today’s society women over the age of sixteen work outside of the home, and there are more single parent households that are headed by women than at any other time in the history of the United States (Thompson 301.)
Before World War II women were labeled as inferior and incapable compared to men in the Canadian workforce. The women’s traditional role as homemaker reflected the social norms, and values of the time. Change came during World War II when

Because it is typical for displaced homemakers in particular to have gaps that span several years in their resume, many lack up-to-date technological skills that are needed in the current fast-paced, data based job market. By offering a relevant job-skills training to those who may already have a postsecondary degree of some sort, with classes such as typing, technical literacy, and multicultural awareness, over four months, these mothers are given the opportunity to gain knowledge that opens up new jobs that pay higher salaries with substantial benefits. For those without a college degree, the program also offers the chance for displaced homemakers to acquire an associate’s degree during a two-year program that includes the basis of job-skills training as well. Upon the completion of these programs, the DHRA assists in finding internships and jobs for these displaced homemakers to apply their skill
Times have changed since the 1800s regarding work patterns in a family. You have single parent workers, part time worker, the breadwinners, and the homemaker that are both men and women. Back in the day there was just the man main breadwinners in society. He played the good provider role that was he was the sole economic provider for the family. The breadwinner “brought the beacon home” and did things around the house like mowing the lawn and other stereotypically things. Now in present day some household see the mother being the breadwinner making more money than their spouse. The term house maker generally was in reference to women back in the day because they did not work. They stayed home and take care of the house and children. They
In today’s competitive workforce, compensation and benefit packages plays a crucial role on recruitment and retention for both the organization and the employee. Bumpbie finds itself in a situation where it could positively affect its employee’s morale, turnover rate and longevity; by making a strategic decision to implement compensation and benefit packages that will encourage current workers to stay and entice new applicants. Money is not always the inherent reason businesses experience high turnover rate, the constant shifting in the job market will always be a contributing factor as well as employee’s moral. Mayhew, R. (2016), explains that an “employee compensation plan” refers to all the components offered as well as the way in which they are paid, and the reason behind the employees getting the compensation case bonuses, salary increases and incentives. The fact that there are voluntary and mandatory benefits that organization provides to their employees give employees the freedom of choice, as well as the option to make the whether to stay with or leave an organization based on the benefits it provides. Variable Pay is also an option that some employers offer their employee which is performance based or results oriented. Whether it is profit sharing, merit based programs or incentive bonuses; it all comes down to which organization can provide employees with the compensation or benefits packages that best satisfy their needs.
Foremost, the familial image has undertaken significant changes in regards to the ‘breadwinner’ and ‘homemaker’ roles within the family. In the latter of the 20th century, women’s participation in the labour force had been very little to non-existent, primarily because time allocations had been perceived as gender specific, that is, men were seen as the ‘breadwinner’, while women were viewed as the ‘homemaker’ (Seltzer, Bachrach, Bianchi, Bledsoe, Casper, Chase-Lansdale, Diprete, Hotz, Morgan, Sanders, & Thomas, 2005, pp.20). The ‘breadwinner’ role was to secure financial stability, while the
Just think about it: the thought of getting paid to give advice to people... sounds great, right? We have all been at times where people come to us for advice, so why not get put into a position where you are paid to do so? Regardless of pay or not, most of the time when we are in this situation, we are left not knowing what would be the best possible thing to say. If you are the kind of friend that has an interest to combat that problem, going towards a degree in psychology is the route for you. Being a certified master of the psychology field can welcome you to an array of many career choices, but one in particular that interests me, is psychotherapy. This has been a career I have been interested in for about six years now. One thing that
In today’s society, most people plan their daily meals around their busy schedules. Food plays an important role in our lives and most just rely on fast food because it is quicker and easier. However, devouring fast food is one of the worst choices you can make. In order to maintain proper health and prevent numerous illnesses and diseases, consuming healthy homemade meals is definitely a more ideal choice. According to a recent study, “when people cook most of their meals at home, they consume fewer carbohydrates, less sugar and less fat than those who cook less or not at all – even if they are not trying to lose weight” (Wolfson). Because many people work full time and get home very late, people continue to eat it without being aware of how unhealthy it is for you and the health risks that it can eventually bring on. Based on the demand for quality food choices of today’s generation, it is important to compare and contrast the effects of preparing healthy, homemade meals versus relying on fast food restaurants for daily eats.
The perfect job would have to be doing something that I love doing. Something that you would do for free. For example, I play football been playing since I was 5, years old for free it would be the perfect job if I could get paid for it millions of dollars to do a sport/job that you enjoy doing. Also over the years, I’ve taken the time to step outside my sport to not only learn about how to help football athletes improve their game. But how to help other athletes from different sports get better with strength and conditioning. Anything that has to do with athletes helping them get better, healing, and recovering from injuries would be a great job. In ten years from today, I can see myself doing something that I love doing.
I believe when it comes down to picking out what occupation is the most rewarding would have to be a police officer. Police officers have to always be ready for any situation that may arise in their city. Some time they can be thrown in scary situations like teenager wreck or accidents with small kids. These are the type of times when a cop has to be mentally able to handle the situation and provide the most help he can. I one day want to be a state trooper so I know now after this paper that there is a lot to look forward to.

This economic contribution, argues Baxter (2002:406) essentially translates to an increase in bargaining power within the household, which is actualised by decreased involvement in domestic duties. Curtis (1986:180, as cited in Brines, 1994:657) suggests that the power differential occurs because women are expecting an ‘unspecified benefaction’ to be decided, and provided by their partners at a future date. This use of housework as a ‘social exchange’ (Brines, 1994:657) is problematic, in that the amount of accumulated housework performed by a wife outweighs the monetary benefit provided to the household by the husband (Sullivan, 2000:442).
