The question for discussion(more 250 words):

Over the past several decades American society has changed in a number of significant ways. Discuss in detail at least one such change (please, make sure to follow the discussion guidelines provided in the syllabus).

 

The classmate’s answer I need to response(more than 250):

One way the American society has changed over the passed decade is by having a less regulated government in businesses. From the Big Government to the Rightsizing Government, rules and regulations have been shifting downwards. For example, in the Big Government when the great depression happen. The government had to step in and redirect the direction that the American society were going in. There were rules in place like the Fair Labor Standards Act, which established the minimum wage and the child labor laws. They also regulated the social security and unemployment insurance. With a large amount of employees getting fired during the great depression there had to be a security to help the American families still be able to afford living costs. In the Rightsizing Government there has been a shift in how the government helps in businesses. They have deregulated transportation with the Airline Deregulation Act which took away the governments control on the routes, fares and the entry of new airlines. They also added more safeguard risks like the Affordable Care Act  and extended the unemployment insurance. With the American society changing there will always be shifts in the way the government handles businesses and to what extent they will interact.
