Essay 6: Unionized health care workers

This is a discussion assignment not research paper or essay and it has to be by your own word. It’s only one page. Also, you have to make it based what it says bellow.

Under labor laws, unionized health care workers are allowed to participate in work stoppages (strikes) so long as they meet certain requirements (10 notice to strike, etc). There are occupations that are not allowed to strike (fire, police) because they are vital to public safety. (lets say there was a labor strike at the largest hospitals in New York on September 11, 2001).

Discuss your opinion on whether or not you believe this should be the case for health care workers? What issues do you feel there would be with this law? What impact would this have on labor and on management? What other options would you propose to balance the needs and rights of the employees with the needs and rights of the population?


You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized.

Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
