Happy Father's Day

Another holiday that we at Issues are positive our readers would like to know a bit more about. So here goes.....

While listening to a Mother's Day sermon in 1909, Sonora Dodd, of Washington, came up with the idea of a "father's day."  Dodd felt it only appropriate that there be a day to honor her father,  William Jackson Smart, a Civil War veteran, who became widowed when his wife died while giving birth to their sixth child.  Smart, then a single parent,  raised his six children alone on a rural farm in eastern Washington state. 

Smart had been born in June, so Dodd felt it only fitting to  hold the first Father's Day celebration in Spokane, Washington on the 19th of June, 1910. In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge, , supported the idea of a national Father's Day, but it was not until 1966, that  President Lyndon B. Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as Father's Day.

WORKPLACE VIOLENCE AND THE EMPLOYMENT AT-WILL DOCTRINE

Workplace violence has gotten out of hand, but what has allowed the process to deteriorate to this state?

Studies have found that highly stressed employees experience twice the rate of violence and harassment than employees in less stressful environments. 

Stories about  workplace murders and assaults have become common, what the public does not read about is the  day-to-day bullying and intimidation many employees experience from bosses as well as co-workers—experiences that can not only undermine morale and productivity, but, psychologists say, 'also lead to the worst kind of workplace violence.'

One area in which to look for answers to the questions of workplace violence, is the outdated, employment at-will doctrine; upheld by lawmakers throughout the country who refuse to enact laws to rectify this problem and upheld by the judicial system that time and time again strikes down employees legal fight for freedom from the at-will oppression.

The question that needs to be asked is simple:

Is the refusal of American lawmakers to effectively deal with the employment at-will doctrine and constructive discharge issue breathing life into workplace violence and breeding murderous intent?

 

Free Background Investigation Databases

Issues has decided to publish our page of public access, free databases to assist those interested in learning how to locate background information on perspective employees, businesses you may be interested in doing business with, etc. Issues has yet to write an article concerning running a background check on either an individual or a business. The online database list is far from being complete, but there will be regular updates on this page. So, please, check it out!

Pain Management

As Editor, I also made the announcement concerning seeing a new physical therapist who specializes in pain management, and the extremely significant reduction in my pain level since beginning therapy with the new therapist.

Please read my article explaining the nightmare I have been through over the past 5 1/2 years, and what I consider nothing less than a miracle in my significant pain reduction. I have placed this within the pages of Issues in hopes helping others who suffer from chronic pain. Chronic pain and pain management will be covered more extensively in upcoming editions of Issues
