02:11 Hey so I’m not going to copy/paste the info from the slides this time. I’ll just type the  things he mentioned that are not included in his slides.  Durkheim – we are all reliant on one another. We need the garbage man to come every  morning. If people don’t fulfill their jobs society is less efficient. Marx – opposite of the Functionalist Durkheim. Marx believed that working in a capitalist  society was bad. This would destabilize the society -> the working class (proletariat)  revolt. Trends – didn’t expand on the first three trends 4) Globalization – the corporations want to keep the wages as low as humanly possible  in order to keep the price of goods down as to maximize profits. He then talked about  the Hershey example – thousands of workers brought over from foreign countries on a  “sight-seeing” trip. They were told that they had to work part-time to pay off their travel

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
