From the Paper:

"Seymour Spilerman investigates the structure of organizations and how they affect the inequality of the workers' income, career, and promotion chances. Spilerman considers the division of labor and unions often restricts the managerial decision making processes. Sometimes, practices of inequality occur when individuals are laid off because employers value certain individual traits in the worker. Layoffs might also fall under the plan of personnel practices, and/or seniority based layoff practices. This essay explores the practices of layoffs of organizations by looking at the structural and procedural practices of organizations and how they are affected by unions. It will also take a look at the sociological elements that might influence a layoff by individual determinants that cause or influence the layoff."
