Another elite excuse for inequality is “education.” If everyone had a Harvard MBA, the argument goes, then we’d all be fine. Don’t get me wrong; the better educated our citizens, the better off we all will be. But someone is still going to need to clean the hotel rooms, flip the burgers, pour the coffee, assemble the cars, cut the hair, etc. But if that job doesn’t provide a decent and dignified life, then we have made little collective progress. And while it’s true that college graduates earn more on average than those without college degrees, wages for young college graduates have stagnated since 2000, with wages for young female graduates falling percent . Churning out more college graduates can’t close the inequality gap if wages are stagnating or falling across the board.
In order to fulfill everyday low price strategy, Wal-Mart can reduce the conflict with suppliers in . by outsource low costs products from overseas like China (Charles Fishman, 2003). The other ways to resolve conflict is using coordination system to maximise profits. This system can enlarge the overall function of the system than the total of all parts of sub-systems. Suppliers and retailers' logistics, information, funds, and knowledge can be share with each others, this can establish a mutual relationship, to distribute profits fairly, reduce inventory level, risks share and improvement in information sharing. By doing so, it will bring the reduction of total cost and maximisation of suppliers & retailers' interest too (WU Jun, ZHANG Lei, WANG Mengya).
To be clear, there are powerful arguments that Uber drivers meet the legal test for employment, given the company’s pervasive control of their work and its economic power over them. But given the ambiguities of current law, Uber has few economic incentives to bring drivers inside the firm, making them employees, or to extend them generous wage and benefit packages. Similarly Amazon’s analytics help it to keep wages low: with barcode scanners tracking pickers’ and packers’ efficiency, the company does not have to pay workers as well to keep them motivated.
“Was it that old guy, Steve, who beat the sow?” says Juan. He’d been working at a Premium barn nearby, where he spent his days extracting beakers of semen from boars and his nights washing the stench off his skin.
