The World According to Vladimir Putin

The World According to Vladimir Putin | Germany and Russia- Dylan Hubbard | Scoop.it
Moscow is taking an ever more controversial stand with the U.S. Why Russia's leader dreams of imperial rebirth
Dylan Hubbard's insight:

RUSSIA

P: vladimir is russias most dominate democratic leader since 200

E: vladimir can enhance state control over political institution and media.

 S- Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the former head of the Yukos oil company and a supporter of the liberal opposition, is serving eight years in a Siberian penal colony on tak and fraud charges

NTK- The tensest moment came in August 2008,  when a protacted row over two breakaway regions of Georgia escalated into a military conflict between Russia and Georgia.

P- Russia's decision to grant asylum to Edward Snowden, the whistle blower who is wanted in the US for leaking the secrets of American intelligence agencies. That makes Russia look really bad because it kinda says they dont care if he leaks intelligence about the Us when we are trying to build our relationship with Russia.

P- Putin also thinks he knows how to solve the Syrian crisis and recover the global economy.

Dylan Hubbard's insight:

GERMANY

P/E-Germany is the only country in the European Union without a minimum wage law.

E- Some people only make $6.50 an hour and that is amoung the lowest i Germany.

P- 12 million people live in poverty and an increase of 400,000 people just in the last decade alone.

S- People that work 40 hours a week say with the prices in Germany it would be ompossible to pay their bills.

P- Peer Steinbruck who is running for chancellor says within 100 days of the job he will set a minimum wage at $11.00 an hour.

E- Its hard t raise the minimum wage and give loans to other countries because the German public is in need and do not have that much money.

P- Chancellor Angela Merkel belives that industries and unions should decide their own minimum wages by collective bargaining. Her fear is that a national wage will make products uncompetitive and eliminate millions of jobs. 

S- Companies can and are willing to pay higher wages but they will need help from the government. They need to have the government lower the price of taxes so they can pay their workers a higher wage.

P- Who ever wins the election should settle the minimum wage debate for good. The debate will most likely not end untill the election is over.

Amazon workers strike in Germany

Amazon workers strike in Germany | Germany and Russia- Dylan Hubbard | Scoop.it
Employees of internet retail giant Amazon are taking strike action in Germany in a long-running pay dispute.
Dylan Hubbard's insight:

GERMANY

E- People could get there items late.

E- People could get laid off

P- Since it is becoming more in demand then if people start to protest ten the buyers wont want to purchase from them.

Amazon is becoming a biger and better company so more people are going to rely on them for items and if they dont have enough trusted workers than the business could fail.

P- The workers are also unhappy with the company constantly monitoring them and workers say it is an impossible workplace. 

640 people didnt show up for work and the industrial action would have little or even no impact on orders
