In a posting of at least 150 words with one properly cited IWG reference (the readings or videos from class are fine), answers the following questions:
- Consider the idea of free labor in the 19th century. How does this impact northern society and economics? How does it impact the southern society and economics?
- Do we have a free-labor market? Would you argue for or against free labor today? Why or why not? What benefits and pitfalls come with a free-labor market vs. an un-free labor system? Explain your reasoning.
- Think about current management practices and state regulations. How does this idea influence management today? What effect does the idea of free labor have in your future industry?
For your citation, you might use articles that show examples of management practices and state regulations. You can also find articles from experts that suggest what effects free labor has or would have on the economy.
Your initial and reply posts should work to develop a group understanding of this topic. Challenge each other. Build on each other. Always be respectful but discuss this and figure it out together.
Per the Due Dates and Participation Requirements for this course, you must submit 1 main post of 150+ words, 1 IWG citation, and reference, as well as 2 follow-up posts of 50+ words.
