First, the FCC awards an enhancement for minority ownership and participation in management, which is weighed together with all other relevant factors in comparing mutually exclusive applications for licenses for new radio or television broadcast stations. Second, the FCC's so-called "distress sale" policy allows a radio or television broadcaster whose qualifications to hold a license have come into question to transfer that license before the FCC resolves the matter in a noncomparative hearing, but only if the transferee is a minority enterprise that meets certain requirements. The FCC adopted these policies in an attempt to satisfy its obligation under the Communications Act of to promote diversification of programming, taking the position that its past efforts to encourage minority participation in the broadcast industry had not resulted in sufficient broadcast diversity, and that this situation was detrimental not only to the minority audience but to all of the viewing and listening public.
Business schools, they state, often teach ethical and moral issues as problems to be solved. They believe that when organizational rules are applied in solving quandary problems they are seldom sufficient, because they do little to enhance moral character.
The solution, according to Mitchell and Scott, is to go beyond quandary ethics by educating through moral discourse. Ethics courses must attempt to heighten moral character.
Furthermore, new technology often creates new ethical dilemmas and the employee may have inadequate background upon which to respond. Employees are still on their own in reasoning through alternatives. Critics state that because the case study method is conducted in the "sterile" classroom environment, the resulting decisions may differ from those made in the field by practitioners confronted by added stressors including peer group pressure.

Story about allegations that the promotions of Tennessee State Troopers were tied to their political campaign contributions. Phil Bredesen gave money to his campaign or had family or political patrons who did, a Tennessean investigation has found.
The situation is not unique to Bredesen, insiders say, but has been a signature of the patrol for much of its year history: While Bredesen has recently said he wants to change that culture in the THP, there is little evidence that he has done so in the first three years of his administration.
Dowdy of East Tennessee, who retired in after failing in a bid for higher rank. He said he was unaware of any connection between promotions and donations to Bredesen. Recommendations come to me from the ranking career officials throughout the Highway Patrol.
Twenty-five officers who were promoted or proposed for promotion did not give to Bredesen, but had references who did. Of those officers, 13 were promoted over troopers who outscored them. In promoting officers with lower promotion scores who have political connections, the agency sometimes uses a looser set of standards designed for outside hires.
Take Don Nicholson, 49, of White House. He scored an 81; the next-lowest score was a But he was promoted to lieutenant innot long after Bredesen took office. Five other sergeants who outscored Nicholson in his testing group were not promoted, state records show.
He was scheduled for another promotion this past August, this time to captain. Troopers and former troopers from across the state told the newspaper they feel pressured to contribute money to campaigns — and to encourage people they know to give — or risk losing out on promotions.
The victor that year, Frank Clement, wrote to each THP officer during the campaign, promising not to pressure the patrolmen for donations: Decades later, highway patrolmen are still opening their wallets, campaign finance records show.
Others gave thousands, like Trooper Robert E. Carter declined to comment. Campaign contributions can be significant for troopers. Approached in August, Bredesen said he succeeded in removing politics from the promotions of the Nashville Police Department when he was mayor. He said he wants the Highway Patrol headed in that direction, too.
Lisa Rudzinski, spokeswoman for the Kentucky State Police. Bryan Farmer, who said he was retaliated against, demoted and eventually fired after supporting Republican Van Hilleary over Bredesen in Laxton declined to speak in detail for this story, citing pending lawsuits, but said he "categorically denies" the accusations and looks forward to telling his side of the story in court.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol also has a spreadsheet that keeps track of political patrons of THP officers and job candidates.
Congressmen, state legislators, Bredesen administration officials, political donors, rural Democratic Party leaders — their names are legion in the spreadsheet of those who put in a good word for a trooper in recent years. The promotion applications troopers fill out also have spaces to list references, and many do.
Of the THP promotions and proposed promotions the newspaper reviewed, state records show 13 officers did not donate to Bredesen but had references from donors and were promoted or slated for promotion over at least one other trooper who outscored them.

In the years since the PDA was enacted, charges alleging pregnancy discrimination have increased substantially.
In fiscal year (FY) , more than 3, such charges were filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and state and local Fair Employment Practices Agencies, but in FY , 5, charges were filed. Economic discrimination is discrimination based on economic factors. These factors can include job availability, wages, the prices and/or availability of goods and services, and the amount of capital investment funding available to minorities for business.
This can include discrimination against workers, consumers, and minority-owned businesses. A monopoly (from Greek μόνος mónos ["alone" or "single"] and πωλεῖν pōleîn ["to sell"]) exists when a specific person or enterprise is the only supplier of a particular commodity.
This contrasts with a monopsony which relates to a single entity's control of a market to purchase a good or service, and with oligopoly which consists of a few sellers dominating a market.
