Deepening Inequality in the Australian Labor Market

The Australian labor market has undertaken various changes in its legislations in the past years. Such legislation includes the Work Choices Legislation, which has had significant effects on the labor market. Whereas these changes have had various positive and negative impacts, it has been argued that they have resulted to inequality in the labor market. This paper set out to examine this argument by examining the impacts of these legislations on various issues in the labor market. Issues examined include the effects of legislations on employability, gender, distribution of economic gains, income, and living standards. By examining statistics and exploring the arguments by different authors, it is concluded that the legislations have brought deepening inequality in the Australia labor market. Further, the legislations individualized industrial relations in the market thereby disadvantaging the Australian worker.

Genetically Engineered (GE) Foods Should be labeled

Genetically engineered (GE) food has been an issue of controversy since 1994 when the USA approved the Flavr tomato. This was followed by the subsequent introduction of these foods to the market (Cockburn 81). GE foods have been widely adopted in the market with 75% of processed food in grocery stores today containing ingredients of GE material (Lee 1). This is amid widespread resistance and debate with public concerns on the safety of these foods. The two opposing sides hold extreme positions with advocates viewing it as a revolution for the future while opponents consider it to be a tool for annihilation. Proponents argue that GE crops have higher productivity, are more resistant to diseases, and have the potential to produce foods with targeted health benefits. On the other hand, opponents argue that GE foods have risks that are not understood in both short and long-term, and have major ethical and social concerns (Brent et al. 409). Of the many issues of controversy regarding GE foods, labeling has been a major issue.
Despite the controversy and the prevalence of GE foods in the market, customers are not always informed if they are consuming these foods. The current regulations under the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) require labeling of GE foods for three major conditions. These are; if the product has significant variation in nutritional content than those already in existence, if it contains an allergen that consumers would not normally expect, and finally, if the products have toxics beyond acceptable levels. These requirements are voluntary leaving the decisions on regulations with the industry (Chen and Li 2007). Currently, FDA on food labeling is guided by Drugs and Cosmetics Act that is only concerned with additives and not whole food products. The existing framework on regulation of GE foods labeling is deficient and does not consider the perceptive of the consumer. In realization of this, various efforts have been made to enact better regulations for GE foods. In 2001, state representative; Karyn Polito filed a bill requiring GE foods to be labeled (Sutner B8). Recent efforts early this year include the proposed Genetically Engineered Food Right to Know Act brought to the House of Representatives by Dennis Kucinich which requires labeling of all GE foods. A common theme for these bills is that the consumer should be allowed to make a choice on whether to consume GE foods or not.

Distant Education: Science and Technology

Distance education has several advantages on the on the part of the individual learner. For one, students are able to access technology-based learning resources and hence are able to study on their own and within their convenient place and time. Distance education also makes it possible for the learning to be tailored to suit each student’s needs. However, this mode of learning can also pose some challenges on the part of the student. The higher education policies are still rigid and require all students to attain certain credit hours before completion of a given course. This leads to distance students taking unnecessarily longer time to complete their course even where they have added experience from the field. Some of the distance education methods require that the students be available at particular times and this may limit flexibility (Mendenhall, 2009).
The fact that distance education employs the use of modern communication technology means that it is not accessible to all sections of the world in the same magnitude. Some countries, especially the least developed countries of Africa, Asia and Latin America still lag behind on application and use of modern information technology. According to a report by United Nation’s Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization [UNESCO] (2002), the world still suffers from intolerable inequalities at the international levels and sometimes within nations. Many countries are struggling with limited access to education and training. While information and communication technologies (ICTs) create new opportunities for delivery of education, the growing level of digital divide is leading to greater inequalities in educational development. This has in turn led to situations where those with the greatest need of these opportunities i.e. the disadvantaged, rural communities, illiterate and poor nations end up not accessing this vital tool of knowledge (UNESCO, 2002).Even in developed countries such as the U.S, there are minority groups who cannot access the distance education due to lack of availability, limited technological factors and cost.

Although heavily favored to win a second term, Rell has decided to ritire a step seen as having availed a chance for democrats who have never held the seat since 1995. In the coming elections, among the heavy weights include; democratic candidate Mayor Don Malloy, Republican candidate Ambassador Thomas C. Foley, and independent candidate Tom Marsh.

Abortion Should Remain Legal

Abortion has been an issue of controversy for many years. This debate is evident at individual, political, social, and legal levels. Currently, over 30 countries in the world have legalized abortion (Ladok, 2010). In the USA abortion is legalized and is rampantly practiced. Statistics indicate that 25% of the pregnancies are aborted which represent over 4,000 abortion cases daily (Guttmacher Institute, 2010). The debate appeared strongly in the political arena in 2003 when former US President George Bush signed the Partial-Birth Ban Act criminalizing partial abortion; an act that raised uproar from the Democrats. Despite many debates on whether to legalize abortion or not, this question still remain unanswered due to various supportive arguments articulated by the pro-life and pro-choice advocates. In this paper it is argued that abortion should remain legal in the USA.
In the USA, abortion has been legal since 1973 when the Supreme Court ruled in the case of Roe v. Wade that gave women in consultation with their physicians the right to have an abortion early in their pregnancy. A further 1993 ruling in the case of Planned Parenthood v. Casey upheld the earlier protection accorded to women in securing an abortion but added that states have the right toe enact restrictions so long as they do not have undue burden on women intending to abort. This has resulted to various restrictions which touch on; parental involvement, mandatory counseling, duration within which it can be secured, and the use of public funds. Currently 34 states require parental consent for minors seeking an abortion although the Supreme Court provides that a minor may seek legal abortion legalizing it. The House passed the Partial-Birth Ban Act in 2003 in which it became criminal for a doctor to institute such a partial abortion. At present, abortion in the US remains legal although various issues different with the states. Congress does not allow Federal Medicaid funds to be used to paying abortion unless the life of the mother is in danger, or in case of rape or incest (Guttmacher, 2010).
