Numerous sports such as rugby can be physically dangerous with players suffering from injuries that will require medical attention and that comes with costs. There are about 41,000 injuries in the nfl. Their high salary can be seen as compensation for the physical stress that these players put their body under. Furthermore, the salary of actors are often compared with athletes because they are seen as easy and high earning jobs. However, actors put in a lot of time in between scenes to memorise lines just like athletes put in a lot of training time when they are not on the field. Moreover, the life of their career must be considered when determining whether or not they are
The Music Industry and the Big Six The music industry is made of companies which produce and sell music. The music industry as we know it was solidified in the mid-twentieth century, where records succeeded sheet music as the primary product in the music business. Record companies were established, but did not last very long until the late 1980s when the “Big Six”, a group of multinational corporations consisting of Sony, MCA, WEA, Polygram, EMI, and BMG controlled most of the market. Initially there were five corporations (CBS and RCA (both now belonging to Sony), WEA, EMI, and Polygram) that had emerged in 1978 to own 60 per cent of the market. (Wallis and Malm, 1984, p. 81)
Many unions are at battle with their respected employers. Some of these fights are better known than other fights. United Airlines is trying to renegotiate contracts to save their company money. This has been a long battle for United,
The merger I choose to research was the acquisition of Pixar by Disney. The merger between Disney and Pixar was a very successful one. They worked together in the past and their contract was running out after the release of Cars. This was the perfect opportunity and sensible move for these two companies to merge. The merger would allow the companies to work together conveniently. This merger was very
The major performing rights organizations were formed to help songwriters and publishers collect performance royalties from their original copyrighted material. The first performing rights organization was created when composers were making their main revenue from sheet music sales. Those composers believed that they deserved to to fairly compensated from people performing their compositions they created ASCAP to help protect them and collect royalties (Schlackman). After ASCAP was founded radio broadcasters were unhappy with the high prices and lack of competition in the music licensing industry. As a result the radio broadcaster came together to form BMI which gave ASCAP competition and gave people the ability to have other options for paying for music (Broadcast Music Inc. History). SESAC was formed by a German immigrant to help the European publishers and artists collect their American royalties (SESAC History). The different performing rights organizations were all formed not only protect the songwriters and publishers with their royalties but also the people who had to pay for the rights to the songs so that they are not extremely overpaying for the music.
LABORING FORWARD: THE FUTURE OF LABOR UNIONS 2 12 Running Head: Future of Labor Unions 1 Research: The Future of Labor Unions Kedra Archie Keller Graduate School of Management HRM- 586 Labor Relations Professor: Danielle Camacho December 4, 2016 Abstract The history of unions in the US is based on a time line that represents workers struggling to organize unions. In the United States, the history of unions played an important part in the independence process for trade unions and everyday workers. Labor unions have played a tremendous part in molding the workforce as we know it since the passing of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) in 1935. However, not long ago, collective bargaining and unions opened the eyes of many Americans by negotiating with management about working conditions and pay wages. Whether they are still perceived as important today is still a major question. As noted in the text, union favorability ratings have declined from 35% to 7% over a thirty-year span. A questionnaire was distributed to a non-random sample (N = 50) to ascertain their attitudes and perceptions on labor unions. Sixty-seven percent of respondents believe that unions should be in every state with 60% of those in a non- Right to Work

People will go to great lengths to be close to the stars of Hollywood. It drives some people insane. That drive for fame and power leaves a lasting impression on the landscape and on lives for decades.
These people all do heroic thing things but they have never had the weight of the United States of America on the shoulders. All of these jobs require a certain type of calling for one to believe that it is what they are meant to do. Some may be risking their lives, but they are usually reaping high reward. Men and women who leave their families for long periods of time, risking their lives, fighting for our country, giving Americans a piece of mind; they do not even earn close to the same salary of a man that plays his favorite childhood sport for a living. Why should someone in the entertainment industry get a larger salary than the one who is keeping this nations safe for them. Without our veterans, and all of those who are currently serving in the military, the athletes and actors might not even get to chose their own career. Everyone in this nation has only a few people to be incredibly grateful for, veterans being one of
The history of trade and industrial union has in the past year been very powerful and proficient when influencing members, employers and politicians. Recently, they have evolved to become less powerful and influential. This is because of the major relapse of the membership of unions and also the government disparaging trade unions in the area of workplace relations. Some governments marginalized those unions in order to significantly reduce the role played by unions by reorienting the relations among and between the employers and the employees.

And why is that? Because they entertain us? They are skilled in what they should be skilled in. So then why are they being paid such enormous amounts of money? It just doesn’t make sense.
Unionization has brought a very negative impact upon AMA strength, power and membership. Small unions are now merging together with other unions to create a big impact and force in political power play and the best example is, The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) with more than one million health care worker members. (Evans, 2008. See Box 175). Unions representative have started barraging with different political parties and are playing great role once negotiated by AMA alone.
Evan O’Keefe Mrs. Rembish Per 7/English 11 12/7/14 In life, people look up to others who stand higher up in the social classes than themselves. Because people wish to appear as the best, they mimic the actions that they commit. Homer represents this in The Odyssey
In a study of 414 films and television series, only 33 percent of all characters were women, and only 28 percent were of racial minority status (Associated Press). Casting diversely in entertainment has been an issue for years and has recently spawned many controversies such as the 2016 Oscar Controversy where an outrage occurred due to a lack of minority Oscar winners. Many cultures and races fell underrepresented and cast aside by film and television. The entertainment industry should cast more diverse actors because it increases viewership, provides a broader perspective, and creates a more realistic setting.
