A good majority of the federal employees are great savers, and planned nicely over their thirty year career and are prepared for retirement financially, not all, however, a good portion.
Internally at my place of employment, there are fourteen states and within the fourteen states there are a team of twenty four account representatives ranging from 20 something to my guess 60 something. We too are enriched with diversity regards to ethnic, religious, education levels, and family units. In addition to our characteristics we have the common personality trait of strong personalities, hardworking, dedicated, and most important we are emotionally dedicated to our clients. The cohesiveness took several years for us to get our “Groove On” and have learned not everything works overall quite efficiently. Taking time to have a better understanding with each era, such as their values, upbringing, and lives lessons, could provide management and colleagues a more cohesive workplace and retaining valuable employees. Typically in the sales arena and corporate America, there is a shelf life for many reasons which are not addressed at least on paper. Beginning with salaries and health care benefit costs the Boomer population cost companies more money, the impacting the profit and bottom dollar.

The checks and balances system provides equal rights and power to various different levels of governments. With that, this ultimately “balances” out all the rights and justices for each of the branches to prevent any dictatorship. The Federal Government consists of three branches; the Executive (President), the Legislative (Congress), and the Judicial (Supreme Court) branch. The Executive has the power to assign new judges that are later checked by the Senate (Congress). The Executive can veto any laws the Legislative creates. However, if 2/3 of the majority disagrees with the President’s denial, the Legislative branch is capable of overriding it. The Legislative checks and clarifies every treaty and fund the Executive proposes. The
Every generation is influenced by its period 's economic, political and social events. From the Great Depression to the civil rights and women 's movements to the advent of television and advanced computer technologies. Thus generational background/situation may also affect the way they work. The key is to be able to effectively address and take advantage of the differences in values and expectations of each generation in the workplace. The current work place consists of four different generations; The Baby Boomers (1946-1964) who are slowly retiring and existing the workforce, The Generation X (1965-1976), The Generation Y or millennia (1977-1997), and the Generation Z who are about to or are just entering the work force. Although these different generations tend to want similar things in a workplace their environment/background has shaped their character, values, and expectations (Hahn 2011).
The Federal bureaucracy before 9/11 was nonexistent. The Federal bureaucracy was dealing with foreign rather than domestic threats. The federal bureaucracy was very limited at the, because DHS don’t exist at that time. Since 2001 until now the DHS has improvement a lot from interdepartmental transitioning in find the threat. The federal bureaucracy get all other countries involve in the betterment and transformation to stop any form terroristic threats.
On December 20, 1860, just a little over a month after the election of Abraham Lincoln, South Carolina seceded the union. Becoming the first state ever to do so, and this action set the example for similar results to happen in fellow slave holding states; throughout the beginning of 1861. Although South Carolina had come very close to secession before, first during the nullification crisis of 1832, and again at the State Convention of 1852, it would ultimately come to a breaking point after the of Election of 1860. Though the full severity of this movement was played down at first in Northern newspapers at first, the real gravity of the situation would soon be felt throughout the Union. This election became the last straw in a series of
In today’s society, the work industry is comprised of numerous generations from baby boomers to millennia’s. Due to reasons ranging from increased cost of living to political policies, Americans are being forced to work longer in order to obtain the social security benefits they’ve contributed to during their careers. Each generation has certain generational influences such as war times and civil rights for the baby boomers and social media and the technology boom for the millennia’s. One constant that has not changed, however, is that the average American has to work for a living, and with the evolution of the US economy, they are having to work longer and are retiring later.
The Baby Boomers were born between 1946 and 1964, and they fall between the ages of 53-71. This generation was subject to the civil rights movements, the Vietnam War and the Cold War, and space travel. Their parents had the highest divorce rate and second marriages in history. “The American Dream” was promised to them as children and they spent their lives pursuing it. As a result some generations see them as being greedy, materialistic and ambitious. This generation believes in working long hours to establish self-worth and identity, they tend to be workaholics and are used to working up to 60 hour work weeks. Working this much caused an imbalance between most work/home life because the workers of this generation were afraid of losing their position at work if they took more time to spend with their families. The preferred work environment for a Baby Boomer is going to be democratic, believe in equal opportunity and be a warm friendly environment. Some pros of the Baby Boomer in the workplace include that they are anxious to please and tend to challenge the status quo. They are mission oriented individuals who will go the extra mile. Some cons of this generation are that they expect everyone to be workaholics like themselves and they don’t like change either after being raised by traditionalists. Some keys to working with these Baby Boomers is understanding how
Government has been a necessity for man for as long as recorded history, and this is because mankind cannot effectively regulate themselves. In the words of James Madison and Alexander Hamilton, “If men were angels, no government would be necessary” (51). That is not the case in today 's society, nor will it ever be under those circumstances. Since government is vital to the success of the country as a whole, what way, size, or fashion would be the most efficient and beneficial to the people? The United States government is large in size, influence, and power. The size of the government has become too large and should be restricted to a smaller government because it is costly, often inefficient, too powerful, and usurping states rights.
A generation can be defined as the period, cohort or age of a group of people. Age is seen as the age that the persons were when particular transitions or events in life take place. Period can be defined as the overall experience of a person’s lifetime. Lastly, cohort can be seen as the overall grouping of people who have shared events during their formative years that more than likely contribute to like-minded behavior throughout the duration of their lives. There are currently four generations in United States society: Silent Generation, Baby Boomers, Generation X and The Millennials. The silent generation was born between the years of 1930 and 1945. Significant events during this time period include but are not limited to World War II and the Great Depression. The baby boomer generation was born between the years of 1946 and 1964. Significant events for this generation include the substantial growth of the middle class as well as economic prosperity. Generation X is born in the time period of 1965-1979, this generation was brought together by the big energy issue as well as the Vietnam War. Lastly the final generation that is currently in the workforce are the Millennials. This generation was born between the years 1980 and 2001, this group is brought together by the 9/11 terrorist attacks as well as the internet
The Bond between Federal government and states is very obscure. In fact, the constitution, and federal papers is constructed around state and federal government. In federalist paper NO.51, founder James Madison explains how he wants a balance between government and personal liberty also how the structure should be.The topic of this entire federal paper is government overall. He believes each branch should be independent, in efforts, no branch should alone, have too much power and become powerful. “If men were angels, no government would be needed” Madison writes, meaning not selfish and/or cared just as much as they did for themselves. Having state government and federal government is an example of Madison 's desire for our nation 's proposed government. The constitution is one of the most important documents for this country. U.S constitution established america’s national government, laws and makes sure citizens have their basic rights.
The United States government was formed to create a democracy fit for the idea that they would be considered “land of the free.” Unfortunately, throughout the history of several world wide events, the intentions of the “forefathers” have strayed to manipulate events and people. The government has been accused for many past years of lying when main events strike the nation causing many tragedies as well as causing emotional anguish on the world. Many claims of false accusations are typically only made public after several years of sealed documents and evidence are put away, which indeed could be a conspiracy of its own. Conspiracies have been made throughout the course of many years for just about any event that occurs around the world. Conspiracies can vary anywhere from ludicrous to factual, there has been specific verifiable evidence to suggest that the events, 9/11, JFK assassination, and Gulf of Tonkin, as told, are not completely accurate.
The relationship between the federal government and the states has continually changed over the years. Each one has their set of duties and powers, and both are ruled by the U.S. Constitution. The states’ rights are more than well protected in the current constitution and the political practice. The Bill of Rights lays out what our rights are, along with fourteenth, fifteenth, nineteenth, and twenty-six amendments. The amendments and constitution continue to protect our rights as Americans even hundreds of years after being established. States have the ability to make restrictions
Today, many Americans are firm believers that the federal government is constantly overreaching and causing citizens to feel harassed and mislead. The idea that the federal government has become overly powerful is exceedingly common throughout the United States. In many cases, the federal government does overstep by inappropriately using the power that they possess. However, there is a fine line between rebelling against the federal government for your own freedom and completely overlooking all of the same laws and rights that the rest of the American citizens are expected to abide by. The Cliven Bundy standoff is a 20-year legal dispute between the United States Bureau of Land Management and Cliven Bundy, who was illegally grazing his cattle on federally owned land in the southeastern Nevada area. Cliven Bundy’s disobedience was uncivil, and could have been handled in a much better way.
The United States government may not always be seen as a flawless group; however, it is generally more favorable than having corporations ruling over America. In Pills and Starships, Nat and her family do not have a stable government to rely on, and they are instead at the whims of the corps’ intense regulations, pharmacontrol, and sponsored massacres. The corps uses manipulation often in order to achieve their goal of rejuvenating the Earth so they can remain. In Pills and Starships, Lydia Millet demonstrates how a corporate controlled body has enough influence within the collapsing society to dictate how Nat and her family act as citizens.
After the end of World War 2, birth rates across the nation spiked. More babies were born in 1946 than ever before with a grand number of 3.4 million! This was the beginning of the so-called “baby boom.” In 1947, another 3.8 million babies were born, 3.9 million were born in 1952,and more than 4 million were born every year from 1954. In 1964, the boom finally tapered off. By then, there were 76.4 million “baby boomers” in the United States (Staff). This made up close to forty percent of the nations population!
For some people, it is difficult to understand how the United States government is laid out, what the three branches of the government are, or how they are different from one another. Those people may not understand how each branch keeps one another in line or how their duties are divided. Each branch has its own individual set of responsibilities and duties to make sure the government is run precisely and that the rights of the citizens are respected. Learning about the three branches further beckons to discuss the separation of powers as well as implied and inherent powers. These powers may also be difficult or impossible to understand when reading about them in legal terms, or on government information. This misunderstanding can lead
