Use the baseline version of the labor market model

Question 1: Over recent decades in the U.S. economy there have been a set of changes that, together, have reduced worker bargaining power (reduced ‘z’). These changes include declining unionization rates and a declining inflation-adjusted minimum wage. (15 points) 

a. Use the baseline version of the labor market model (i.e. in which the markup depends only on the degree of competition between firms and not on relative bargaining power) to graphically analyze the effect of these changes in labor market institutions on the natural rate of unemployment and real wages. Because our labor market model is based on the relative bargaining power of workers and employers, a reasonable extension of our model also allows the mark-up to change when bargaining power changes. b. If the mark-up also depends on bargaining power, does the mark-up increase or decrease when worker bargaining power falls? Why? 

c. In this case, show the effect of declining unionization rates using the graphical labor market model. What happens to real wages and unemployment? Explain briefly. 

d. Compare your answers to (a) and (c). Which version of the model do you find more convincing and why? (Explain in 1-2 sentences).

Case Study in Lean Manufacturing and Environment

Case Study in Lean Manufacturing and Environment

Many organizations have found that implementing lean concepts and tools results in improvements in environmental performance, even when lean activities were not initiated for environmental reasons since environmental savings are often not part of the “business case” for lean improvement activities.    However, organizations implementing lean do not necessarily quantify the environmental performance gains associated with their lean initiatives.    Here is a web site with examples of case studies showing environmental benefits that result from lean implementation.

Visit some other websites and study case studies in details.  Search for the Case Study you would like to write about.  To complete the assignment, you will select a case study, summarizing major points and answering the following questions:

1. What is the selected business/organizaion? Give a brief company background, products, and location of headquarters.

2. How were the efforts led?  Did leadership in the company empower employees? and how?

3. What are tools/applications used in Lean Six Sigma implementation of this case?

4. What were the business results?  Was it in environmental improvements, was it in quality or costs, was it in delivery, etc.?

5. Conclusion and your recommendation. How the case can be improved for the better results; what is your proposed methods; and what tools/techniques can be applied in your method?

Your writing should be in 2-3 pages (Word document in Time New Roman 12, single space),

Remember to proofread and edit each submission for spelling and grammar, before posting. This is a 5000 level course, you should provide deep thoughts and more clarity at a higher level of analysis and demonstrate synthesis.

Research Design for One-Way ANOVA

Week7 D1 Research Design for One-Way ANOVA

The logic of ANOVA is the same as a t test, which is to test the null hypothesis (Warner, 2012). However, a t-test is limited to comparing 1-2 groups, while ANOVA allows for testing 2+ samples (Warner, 2012).  When ANOVA procedures are applied to data with one dependent and one independent variable, such as race and mental health literacy (MHL), it is called a one-way ANOVA (Warner, 2012).

For example, Rafal, Gatto, & DeBate (2018), using a one-way ANOVA, seek to answer the research questions, “Will race of college male undergraduate students (IV) cause differences in MHL (DV)?” The authors create 3 levels of the nominal variable, “race”. They are: White, Asian, & Other. The null hypothesis states, “There is no difference in MHL (DV) caused by race of college male undergraduate students (IV).” The authors state, “among undergraduate participants, statistically significant differences were observed by race for overall MHL; F(2,790)=18.953, p= <.001 (Rafal, et al., 2018).”

A quick view of a table suggests 3 comparisons of MHL were made based on race, White Vs Asian, White Vs Other, Asian Vs. Other (Rafal, et al., 2018). The former two (White Vs. Asian & White Vs. Other) were statistically significant (p=<.001*), while the latter comparison group (Asian Vs. Other) was not (Rafal, et al., 2018). This means scores on MHL significantly differed when White was compared to Asian, and when White was compared to Other. Specifically, “White males had higher total MHL than Asian male undergraduates (p <.001) and Other undergraduates (p<.001) (Rafal, et al., 2018).”

Overall, authors can reject the null hypothesis because their data suggests race causes differences in MHL, and the differences are statistically significant.

Victimology and Patterns of Victimization

Chapter 7: Victimology and Patterns of Victimization

The authors discuss the meaning of genocide, criminology’s aversion of the topic, and assertions of the United States’ own participation in it.  Through reviewing a brief U.S. history, the authors argue that genocide stemming from the treatment of Native Americans throughout history should not be written off as radical conspiracy.  Likening American Indian reservations to inner cities, a connection is made provoking questions between the historical treatment of African Americans and genocide.  

Chapter 8: Lawmaking and the Administration of Criminal Law

This Chapter analyzes the impact that class, race, and gender have on shaping laws and the lawmaking process.  Although criminal law is thought to be an objective measure of harm, it is instead the direct result of our political process headed by a powerful few, where money and privilege reign.  The authors explain that the laws that shape our reality and perceptions of what is criminal serve the interests of the influential ruling class at the expense of the underclasses.

Discuss one of the following (Write Minimum of 250 words):

1. You learned in Chapter 7 that certain victims are valued above others.  Why do you think that is? How do you think that impacts the U.S Criminal Justice System?


2. According to Chapter 8, minorities are the labor pool that is regulated through punishment. How is this analysis relevant in criminal justice today?  

What kind of resistance to change do you foresee in terms of personnel sources and organizational sources

The effectiveness and practices of criminal justice organizations are continually being challenged by society and the legal system. It is perceived that criminal justice organizations need to follow an optimistic approach toward organizational change and development.

For this assignment you have just been hired as a management consultant for a private prison corporation. The company owns two prisons; both have high rates of employee turnover and very bad reputations. One is a brand new facility, Kurz Manor. Your company built it from scratch and installed a modern management system. The problem is that most of the staff is new to corrections and the discipline in the facility is very loose. Recent escapes from Kurz Manor have resulted in a public outcry that the place should be closed.

The other prison, Longview, has been running as a traditional state prison using policies and procedures that have not been updated for many years. The staff uses a punishment model of control instituted by the warden Big Bob. Longview has very low morale and numerous prison incidents of violence and sexual assaults. Both of the prisons house medium to maximum-security prisoners.

For this assignment the state has given your company the management contract for the private prison corporation. They need changes to be made that will alter the situation in both facilities within the corporation. If significant improvements are not witnessed in two years, the state will probably decide to house their prisoners elsewhere.

To make certain that the decisions you’re taking are going to help the organization, you need to be sure that you have accurate information about the history of the organization and what strategies are going to help it. To do this, what kind of research would you plan? What kind of data would you need to put your plans into action? How would conducting the right kind of research help you implement your plans of action?

Your goal as the management consultant for a private prison corporation is to develop plans to bring about large-scale changes in the corporation and its two facilities.

  • To bring about change and development in the corporation and its two facilities, what are the first steps you will take and why? What are the theories and models you will use? Use your research to cite resources to support your recommendations.
  • What kind of resistance to change do you foresee in terms of personnel sources and organizational sources between the two facilities and why; cite sources to support your argument. How would you propose methods to overcome this resistance to change across the various levels in both facilities and why; cite sources to support your proposal?
  • To ensure the development of your organization’s effectiveness, how would you increase the level of trust and support among organizational members from both facilities and why; cite sources to support your proposal?
  • How would you improve the level of job satisfaction in both facilities? List methods and tools for implementation and cite sources to support your recommendations for improvement.
