casinos were legalized in their area, their land value increased 100 times. Land that was valued at $250 per acre began to sell for $25,000 per acre. Even more surprising, unemployment dropped to 4.9%, and food stamp recipients dropped to 13% (Walker, 2013).
With all of the positive effects that casinos bring, and the strong competition from neighboring states, one can begin to see why it is so important for Indiana to allow the expansion of land based casinos. Currently, casinos are limited to river boat areas, there are many places in Indiana that are missing out on all of the tax, employment, and other benefits that casinos have to offer. Expanding the current laws would allow more

Human resource is considered the backbone for any business; whether it’s in a production industry or in a service industry. We all have heard of the term organizational chart. Any business has an organizational chart that consists of the structure of the organization and the relationships and ranks of its human resource (employees) position/jobs. Some organization charts are wide and tall whereas some may be short and narrow. Companies often believe that hiring and managing human resources are as important as any other operations.

For example the US produces more technology for the worldwide Internet network and the hardware to access it than any other country. We also lead the world in accessing the Internet. The pure volume differences are amazing (Chart 1). With this said critics still claim that NAFTA is hurting both the United States and Mexico. Critics claim that the only people who benefit from NAFTA is the multinational companies operating in Mexico.

In Texas, the Executive Director of prisons points out that every inmate in its system is assigned a job, not one prisoner is paid for working, and all prisoners work an eight-hour day. Compared to doing nothing, working in the prison industry can be seen as a privilege.

In the beginning of the NRA, Roosevelt promulgated a President’s Re-employment Agreement. Employers signed more than 2.3 million agreements, covering 16.3 million employees. Employers agreed to a 35-40 hour workweek, with a minimum wage of $12 to $15 per week. In turn, businesses who signed the agreement displayed a blue eagle over the motto “We do our part.” Therefore, Patriotic Americans would buy only from “Blue Eagle”.

Secondly, there is need to have policies which promote gender equity and fairness in the job industry. For instance, both federal and state laws in the US can be put in place to ensure fairness for all employees. For instance, an update to the Equal Pay Act of 1963, which is pending in Congress, could go a great deal in ensuring fairness in the employment sector (Blau & Kahn, 2007).

In Spain, having a light skin tone meant you were full of pure Spaniard blood versus if you were of a darker complexion, you were not seen as worthy to even reside in the Spanish empire. Today, skin complexion dictates a person's ability to achieve employment at all. According to Berkeley, darker people want to be lighter because they believe it will make them more appealing for courting, employers, and even to seem more intellectual. Economically, it is proven that lighter complexion men have a better chance of employment compared to their darker skinned counterparts. Not only this, but proven statistics from UNCP show that darker skinned blacks are more than
