1. How did new technologies combine with the arrival of millions of unskilled immigrants from Ireland, and later southern and eastern Europe, to impact the relative bargaining power of capitalists and workers in 19th-century America? What do you think were some reasons why the courts at first tended to sup-port capital against labor? Why do you think that view gradually changed?

2. Imagine that the Supreme Court during the 1930s had staunchly refused to change its view and continued to declare almost all New Deal labor and employment laws to be unconstitutional, as the Court did at first. What do you think might have been some of the results of such intransigence on the Court’s part?

3. Briefly explain the scope of the Occupational Safety and Health Act. How is the Occupational Safety and Health Act administered and enforced?"

4. Explain the three major categories of the Social Security system. Do you think that the Social Security system is economically sustainable in the 21st century?

5. Briefly describe the origin and purpose of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

6. Company A sells airtime and infomercials on television. It employs telephone callers at $9 per hour. Company B, which is owned by the same parent company, does telephone collection calling of its clients’ debtors, paying the same hourly rate of $9. Employee C works 40 hours per week for Company A. He is also employed evenings for a total of 10 hours per week for Company B. Should Company B be required to pay Employee C time-and-one-half for overtime compensation?
