MGT 589 Midterm Exam Fall 2016 ONE QUESTION, SIX PARTS Recently it was reported that certain American fishing boats operating near Hawaii are essentially “floating prisons”, keeping their crew members in “slave-like” conditions and paying them as little as 70 cents an hour. (The minimum wage in the US is $7.25 per hour, in Washington it is $9.47 per hour, and in Seattle it is $15 for most employees. In Vietnam it is approximately $250 per month.) The crew members are mostly men from Southeast Asia, are not American citizens, do not have visas, and are not allowed to come on shore in the US. Although the fishing boats are legally registered as American boats, are owned by American companies, and are fishing in US waters, they are not breaking US law; they do not have to follow US labor laws because they fall under an exemption (the reason for the exemption is unimportant.) Not all of the fishing boats taking advantage of the exemption pay such low wages and provide “slave- like conditions.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
