Citizen King 1963-1968( Visual )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This story begins on the steps on the Lincoln Memorial in August 1963 when a 34-year-old preacher galvanized millions with his dream for an America free of racism. It comes to a bloody end almost five years later on a motel balcony in Memphis, Tennessee. In the years since those events unfolded, the man at the center, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., has become a mythic figure, a minister whose oratory is etched into the minds of millions of Americans, a civil rights activist whose words and image are more hotly contested, negotiated and sold than almost anyone else's in American history

An investigation of the economic, social and political forces that have produced the Black American underclass in Shaw, a crime-ridden neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Observes that, following the Civil Rights legislation of the 1960s and the riots of 1968, the stable Black middle class moved out of the area. Explores the following themes: economic decline, addiction to crack and other drugs, lawlessness, teen-age pregancy, and the long and desperate search for employment on the part of those without specialised skills

Gender Differences in Rates of Job Dismissal: Why Are Men More Likely to Lose Their Jobs? by Roger W Wilkins( )

2 editions published in 2011 in German and English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Empirical studies have consistently reported that rates of involuntary job separation, or dismissal, are significantly lower among female employees than among males. Only rarely, however, have the reasons for this differential been the subject of detailed investigation. In this paper, household panel survey data from Australia are used that also find higher dismissal rates among men than among women. This differential, however, largely disappears once controls for industry and occupation are included. These findings suggest that the observed gender differential primarily reflects systematic differences in the types of jobs into which men and women select. -- dismissals ; gender differentials ; involuntary job separations ; HILDA Survey ; Australia

Measuring top incomes using tax record data : a cautionary tale from Australia by Richard V Burkhauser( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Atkinson, Piketty, and Saez (2011) survey an important new literature using income taxbased data to measure the share of income held by top income groups. But changes in tax legislation that expand the tax base to include income sources (e.g. capital gains, dividends, etc.) disproportionately held by these groups will conflate such an expansion with an increase in the share of income they hold. We provide a cautionary tale from Australia of how comprehensive tax reform legislation in 1985 substantially altered Australian top income series, especially those that do not separate taxable realized capital gains from other taxable income
