nequality was not in decline; in fact, class inequality had made everyone become part and parcel of the struggle against the British crown (Young, 1999). To begin with, poverty had led to constant confrontations with the British as exemplified in the Boston massacre where British soldiers killed five men in a near riot situation. This riot inspired people like George Hewes to get involved in insurgent activities over the next three years including the Boston ‘Tea Party’.
The enhancement of class inequality was also demonstrated in the life of George Hewes when he made shoes for poor people and had to compete with factories in Lynn that produced over 80,000 shoes a year (Young, 1999). In addition, he had to incur debts when he bought his attire for his wedding and would soon be in debt for ten years. This was compounded by the fact that his family had to stay with relatives because of extreme poverty. In such circumstances, it is plausible to argue that there was no decline of the class inequality in the revolutionary era (Young, 1999).
The persistence of class inequality in America is demonstrated in its entirety by two significant factors that Alfred Young notes in his writings of George Hewes’ life. These are the revolutionary/ insurgency spirit, and the daily life of a common man (Young, 1999). To begin with, the development of an atmosphere of tension was not necessarily occasioned by hatred towards the British crown but towards the conditions of living which made people become ever more conscious about the inequalities they experienced. They had to compete with large factories in making common goods and had to endure low wages as demonstrated by the life of George Hewes living with relatives, being in debts because of clothes, and making shoes for a living. Additionally, the frustrations that were exerted on installations of the government and the capitalists such as the harassment of British soldiers in Kings Street in March 1770 and the destruction

The state of California recently introduced an initiative that was decided in the November 8, 2012, elections. Proposition 32 had the intention banning payroll deductions from the union or corporate members being used for political purposes. Proposition 32 was defeated in the recent ballot with over 56.1% of the voters rejecting the proposition.
The Green Party of the U.S.A. supports this proposition because it aims to increase funding for clean and energy efficiency projects. The Californians for Clean Energy and Jobs, American Lung Association in California, and Latin Business Association support Proposition 39 too.
Proposition 13 also mandated that a two-thirds majority of the legislature would be needed to raise local tax rates and also required a 2/3 vote of the people to approve any rate hikes. The state of California immediately lost 57% of its property tax revenue amounting to $6 billion dollars (Fox).
Organizations that develop structures that foster ethical communication and institutionalize ethical practices can go a long way towards reducing the temptation for employees to misbehave (Grant, 2006). An organization can enforce a code of ethics by punishing those who
Arguably, proposition 13 was one of the most unpopular state initiates that significantly altered property taxation in California as a whole (Gervais and Rayford 763). Generally, this initiative established
