In short, lack of motivation in exchange for more red tape causes investors and landlords to move towards more profitable options. This movement of money and resources tends to negatively impact people trying to find a place to live, most notably the poor. The National Multi Housing Council (NMHC) states that prospective customers must pay finder fees to find a rental property due to a presumably growing scarcity of available housing. As if this were not bad enough, in some communities rental properties are handed down to friends and family, so they never quite leave the market. In order to obtain housing, new consumers are forced to pay “key money” and other fees. These costs tend to impact young, single, and poor families the most.
A lot of companies today are committed towards building an environment that is conducive to all its employees to work in. They say that the success of a workplace violence and horseplay prevention program depends to a large extent on the executive committee set up to establish and oversee the programs.

The problem needing the most immediate attention is Coffey's behaviour and performance. Coffey consistently arrives at work late, and takes extended breaks. Coffey has even gone so far as to set an alarm for when his breaks begin and when he can go home. Coffey's tardiness reached a new pinnacle when he failed to show up to work for a Monday and part of a Tuesday, without informing Ricard of his absence. The most alarming concern Coffey poses to the R.R.C. is his attitude towards meeting deadlines. Consistently Coffey either submits work just before or after the required deadlines for assignments. Ricard has confronted Coffey several times about his behaviour, and Coffey, stubborn to change, refuses to believe he needs to improve.

This case deals specifically with the members of the "clicking" workgroup. The problem appears to be a total lack of supervision and management oversight as the work location is completely isolated from other areas of the shop floor. This lack of supervision has led to a number of concerns. Specifically, the issues of horseplay, extended breaks and operator disruptions, which all lead to a loss of production, are clearly visible during daily operations. These problems, while on the surface may seem trivial, the loss of production and absence of concern for operator safety need to be addressed. If the working group throughput quota is being met, some leniency could be afforded for the extended breaks and operator
