Living on minimum wage

English

This article talks about something that touches millions of people across North America; the poverty trap that is minimum wage.  The authors believe that minimum wage should be brought up to at least fifteen dollars an hour in order to allow people to actually be able to use their money. They talk about Bill 33, which would raise the minimum wage by fifteen cents. With such a low increase rate if this bill had been put in place our minimum wage would be much less than it is now. They then go on and talk about how many of the minimum wage workers in Manitoba are women with children.

ABSTRACT: Social Entrepreneurship + Regional Development

This paper demonstrates how it is possible for social entrepreneurship to play a key role in rural development. It draws links between social entrepreneurs, their work, their role in sustainable development, and how it relates to rural development. My findings suggest that social entrepreneurship can be achieved if we consider catering to the basic needs of individuals in the society first. In addition, we must find a development model that works today and does not impede, but rather create, better opportunities for tomorrow.

Project - Rebranding of a Sustainable Business - The Lotus House

We are students in the Hotel and Restaurant Management Program at College Lafleche. Throughout our course "Business English 2" we have completed 3 professional workshops wherein we evlauated real businesses and then came up with real suggesttions and solutions which we might offer them if they were our clients.

For this 4th workshop, our task was to evaluate the Lotus House, which is a not-for-profit guesthouse which operates in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. This guesthouse uses its profits to support an orphanage, and in turn, the orphans have the opportunity to learn about the tourism/hospitality industry so that when they are 18 years old, they will have a better chance of finding a good job. Mongolia is set to become a major tourist destination, and we were excited to work on this project because The lotus House is a strong example of a sustainable business.

Our task was to research the company and produce the following documents:

Documents:
1. A rebranding package: logo, mission statement, slogan(s) and anything else that you may think useful.
2. A list of potential parent companies and a brief description of why they may be interested, and in which capacity they may be interested (buy/sponsor/partner). This part must be as realistic as possible and include real statistics and facts.
3. A SWOT analysis for 1 of those potential partners
4. A slideshow that presents the basic concept, key details, and major advantages which will incentivize the parent company to buy/sponsor/partner with your charitable client.
5. A second slideshow which illustrates the improvements, upgrades, technology, new concepts, new product offerings that the investor can make possible.

Here is our work so far:

Project - Sustainable tour of Central America

Here is the first step which I have taken towards the creation of a sustainable tour of Central America. This is an informative pamphlet which would be given to prospective tourists (before their trip) so that they can be better informed of sustainable practices. My next step will be to publish the full 7-day itinerary of the tour that I am creating, along with the full pre-trip briefing that the travelers will receive before embarking.
