The first part of this week’s writing assignment (customnursingassignments.com) again involves the ongoing focus on democracy (or lack thereof), this time in the place where many of us spend (or will spend) a large portion of our waking lives: our places of employment. Read the short piece by Elizabeth Anderson called “Private Government: How Employers Rule Our Lives (And Why We Don’t Talk About It)”, and the article, “Workplace Democracy” (both on Canvas) and in at least 500 words respond to the following: • Is Anderson on to something with her critique of the workplace? In what ways do you see the “private government of the workplace” affecting our lives? • Should democratic decision-making be extended to more areas of life, such as the workplace? Why or why not? https://www.theworkingworld.org/us/what-we-do/workplace-democracy/ Pt. II – The second part deals with legislative representation, as the legislative branch is that which was designed to be the closest to the people. https://www.usa.gov/elected-officials Use the link above (also found on Canvas) to determine your representative in Congress and your local representative on a city council or county board. Then identify two issues of concern to you: one local, and one issue that is on a larger (regional/national/global) scale. Finally, write two brief letters to your member of Congress and your local representative about these issues (the local issue for the local rep, the larger issue for the member of Congress). The total of the two letters should be at least 500 words Include all of their information, as one does in a formal letter (do some research if you aren’t sure how). Address them to your officials and make them real constituent letters (again, do some research if you aren’t sure what that means– you are responsible for getting it right). Cite any sources (on a separate page).
