Consequently, taking this approach sees any interaction with unions as taking away from the employee’s commitment to their employer (Silverman, n.d.)....   [tags: employment conditions, member protection]

Two such characters emerge from her famous short stories: Frankie Addams from The Member of the Wedding and Miss Amelia Evans from The Ballad of the Sad Cafe. These characters are unique as they both struggle to fit in with society’s ideal of women in the South, and are isolated from the ‘normal’ life of a Southern woman....   [tags: The Ballad of the Sad Cafe]
