"And i wanted to some of the information for patients science so i brought in some awareness of aspects of social assistance policy that shape and perpetuate inequity which leads occupational justice for living in poverty social assistance policies promote occupations associated with entering the labor force other occupational policies which are possibilities which are tied to positive health and wellbeing are neglected such as neat. Leisure self care and community. Participation occupational can further explored this form of occupational marginalization and can take an active stand to bring up questions of justice participation and i did st which all become for fronted in poor populations. We also can play a role in raising the consciousness about the need to acknowledge the wide range of occupations including those that are that are culturally specific as well as the right for every citizen to be able to fully participate in society. But where are we then. So when occupational science. I started a have to acknowledge that in the literature ultimate ways of doing and being that diverge from john hegemonic white milk last year american conceptualization continue to be underrepresented Historically it has been connected by what researchers but continue but discontinues occupation was characterized as active purposeful end and and meaningful as well as contributing to construction expressions of self identity which reflects an a western understanding of healthy an ideal way of life. This conceptualization is intuitively understood by the majority of western occupational science as the lines with their own understandings experiences of the world. And if we think about this. Concept occupation reflects only the perspective of a minority of the global population so recent publications in the journal of occupational science such as begin twenty twenty and johnson lavishly calls have acknowledged lack of diversity in occupational science. Begin calls for anti-racism Focusing occupational surnames through fundamental change to the institutionalize whiteness that pervades western societies and is rooted in histories of colonial racism and slavery johnson elaborately call for a more nuanced critical inquiry and reconceptualise of occupation as a site where racism is an in estate however it is further acknowledged that the paucity of voices from non white racial and cultural groups limits. The possibilities for anti-racists responsiveness in scholarship. Ship ma ma delays challenges the disciplined to undertake research that challenges acknowledges and celebrates diversity in which people live and due to represent the plurality of life experiences. And if i think the ball publishing my own work. I wish that i actually acknowledge the cultural and racial differences in the experiences of receiving social assistance. Which i didn't even though the majority of my participants were black. I didn't even state that in my in my thesis. I did but in my publications. I did it. And that is. Because i didn't have the guidance or even understanding then to to realize or to even know that that is an important consideration that should be taken in any research that is being done. So where do i belong. I recognize my own status of being an immigrant woman and belonging to a racial minority group directly influences. How i see the world as a black woman. I have to think about how my perception of race may influence interactions with participants. What i do research and how participants perception of me may influence how their interact with me. So in my research i automatically stood cultural. References of participants from the west indies caribbean because of similarities and was better able to engage in conversation based on my own experiences as a bike caulk occupational science researcher witnessing occupational science sciences prioritization of research that moves beyond a western paradigm and the head john hegemonic white discourse and the encouragement of perspective from research is located outside. The western context has been encouraging but as a bypass researcher researchers located within a culturally heterogeneous and globally intercut interconnected western society. I feel the need to bleed bear. The knowledge production processes within occupational science and engage in critical reflection on the nature of the knowledge. Why what an whose knowledge as well as the production of knowledge how and by whom within the always discipline by centralizing race culture ethnicity and experimental knowledge. All a person of color. People of color. Like myself so i end with this for always discourse to reflect the diverse situated nature of occupation. There is a need to be critically reflective of what we do what we choose not to report on her. We train our scholarly gays who is protected and not protected as we do our work.

"Work. According to the old w. and or the axe someone is only eligible if the budgetary requirements of the person any dependence exceed their income and their assets are depleted to the allowed maximum in addition of the forms of support our encourage sometimes necessary to be fully pursued before reliance on the state's income exemption policies also set limits on the amount of outlet income which can be acquired without affecting once monthly allowance. Overpayments are charges if monthly employment exceeds the allowable income so overall these forms of clawback are meant to reduce our deter reliance on social assistance so therefore an additional compromise. Asian is the assumption that you need. Financial restrictions to decrease reliance on social assistance. What it actually ends up doing is deterring people from working. Because they're worried about all the rules whether there they'd be charging over payment or having to limit the amount of hours they could actually work. Even when they're in a part time employment that may be not not have some long term stability so the wpro approach also asked us what is silent in the specified policies. Clawback was created as an incentive to work however work related expenses such as childcare transportation on clothing not considered an income exemption. Childcare is only subsidize if the parent works fulltime. and during the weekdays. So if you're working and you need some you need to pay for childcare and you have to use some of your working money to pay for it. That does not matter. Do not subtract that from the money that they subtract from what they're actually going to let you keep housing authorities and social assistance actually base croats on the same dollar earning employment earnings so therefore as income increases rent also increases. And that's in the case of if you're rented subsidize that means that you pay an amount of rings based on your income. These additional cost me therefore exceed the financial benefits. All which are derived from support for single parents is also lacking. These parents have less choices about entering the labor force. In selecting less stressful employment secondary education is completely silent. Also assistance policy as that responsibility falls to another ministry so if you seek us alone to go to post secondary education you can no longer receive welfare. That loan is intended to also cover your living and household expenses government inches institutions which are the primary barriers of human rights have not embedded human rights framework into social assistance policy allowing citizens rights to food housing. An adequate standard of living. Another silence is the consideration of race or culture which is more concerning in a country which boasts the highest percentage of foreign born citizens than any other g eight country as reflected in the many languages. Spoken the plurality of life experiences and the diversity of occupational engagements candida is indeed a cultural was fg but no considerations of race or culture aimed socialist policies. Now i will shift the conversation. To reese and cultural specific occupations so culture and race and ethnicity are terms associated with the global history qualification. Asian races often thought of as an immutable correct ristic of individual. Because apparently it's based on physical characteristics however it is environmental forces namely social considerations conditions that gave rise to the social construction individual social status in achievement which grew out of colonization and the enslavement of africans and native americans gave rise to rachel. This is on the other hand. Culture reflects assured norms beliefs and values of people in particular group that verse socio-demographic identities including race culture ethnicity and gender are important influences on once occupational patterns and choices people from underrepresented populations have unique cultures which impacts occupational opportunities and well being recipients see in court spoke about feeling that to get Opportunities he had a similarly in terms of appearance she describes herself as a natural girl who likes to wear natural hair styles in one circumstance. She was given an opportunity for a job interview to old w. workshops however a staff member was also back and also wore her hair natural approached her and told her that she respects that. She's also a natural girl but the job is looking for something different suggesting that has trainer here in order to have a better opportunity to get the job ultimately. She did get the job and the person who did that. Get the job was also black. But had we've straight here so now hannah's thinking has change although she loves being natural once he goes in for interviews. She wears straight wigs. Hannah experience of conforming to predominantly caucasian beauty standards of long straight hair during job interviews demonstrates that racial nature of the labor market to welfare to work policies. There is a clear demonstration of the role that gender and race playing the labor market. Women are more likely than men to be employed in part-time labor market and racialized. Women are more likely than their counterparts to be. Precariously employed occupational about imbalance is used as a population base term to identify populations that do not share in and benefits of economic production user experiences segregation associated with gender disability race or other forms of difference. So we have already. In occupational science had been acknowledging that.

Myths And Realities Of America's Rural Economy

"Economists benghazi. Laurie says the first rule about rural america is that there is no rural america. Like fight club except with cow. I was saying that's that's not actually what he said. What do you actually said was this. There's so many different parts of rural america that it's a misnomer to actually categorize all on one monolithic theme. Bend means is that rural. america is not one thing. It's more like a collection of rural communities each with different economies with different strengths and problems and different characteristics and binga says one of the best ways to see this is to look at the racial ethnic makeup of the people who live in each of these rural communities if for example throughout much of middle america including the big farming areas more than nine out of ten people are white and for all of rural america. Roughly eight out of ten people are white. Now that's definitely higher than the six out of ten people who were white in the us overall but bengals very point is these figures mask. A lot of demographic diversity in the individual rural communities for example here are some estimates from his own analysis. And so if you look at our break down just a regional breakdown. Americans in rural areas in northeast is only about two percent in the mid west. But what a half percent in west. It's even smaller. It's under one percents. But in the south it is sixteen point. Six percent so the population of african americans in the rural south is greater than it is in a national one. Benji says that's why this part of rural america in the south is often referred to as the black belt. There's also the rural parts of the great plains states that have a high share of native americans living in them like in new mexico and montana. Plus there is rural hispanic centers in south west and west like in arizona and california and in all three of these regions. There is a smaller share of white residents than there is in the us overall. And that's why banca says it's a myth that rural america is all white. The second myth that needs to go bunga says is it. The rural american economy is all about farming and the extraction of natural resources like mining. These are definitely still important sectors. But they're far from the biggest. So service sector. Employment is the largest sector in rural communities. And it's been like that for a long time. In most rural communities the combined services education and health care and social assistance employed the most people in fact these sectors employ roughly the same share of people throughout rural america as in the rest of the country about twenty three percent in a lot of rural counties. A local school system or the hospital for example is the single biggest employer and even in rural towns that originally depended on a different industry or on a different employer. These services naturally sprung up around those industries to complement them says banca bow meat packing plants and in the twentieth century. Early part of twentieth century. Me packing plants were prevalent in urban areas. But they start to move out into smaller towns to become kind of like that one employer to town. Another example is automobile industry Move from the north moving down south to mississippi and alabama. A lot of it is to take advantage of the low wage labor market and the lack of united nation and so this is actually has pushed these rural economies away from agriculture. To service sector. This is also why it's a big deal. When the one hospital in a rural town closes there might just not be many other employers left plus it means that residents of that town have to look further out to access healthcare. This is especially a problem in places like the black belt where there's been a huge increase in the number of hospitals that have closed over the last few decades and finally myth number three that needs busting bunga says is the idea that rural america is dying or destined for permanent decline but in fact some parts of rural america are thriving about one out of every three rural counties has enjoyed strong population growth in recent decades with their populations actually peaking as they headed into the last decade. That's according to the latest data. Unfortunately that's also roughly the same share of rural counties that are depopulating about one out of every three rural counties has lost more than twenty five percent of its population since nineteen fifty. The populations of these counties are aging partly because so many young adults of childbearing age are leaving for the cities and suburbs in search of job opportunities and for these counties this kind of fishes cycle consenting people leaving means there's less money for taxes and investment to provide the amenities and services that people want and so more people leave which means the tax base drops again and so on and this is one reason why incomes are lower and poverty rates are higher in rural america then in the rest of the country but nothing about this cycle is inevitable it can be slowed or even reversed and says even in some communities where the population looked like. It would be in permanent decline. There have been success stories especially in the places that have a lot of immigration as so you have a lot of people. Immigrants coming in to work meat. Meatpacking plant manufacturing places. The other thing is that a lot of immigration From other areas in terms of people coming to the us for becoming doctors lawyers things like that a higher education and income communities. So you think about the mid west. There's like a population of say vietnamese and brass or these areas or like the monk population in minnesota that these places do not struggle as much with population loss because they're welcoming immigrants and that helps them to not only just having people there but then these people start stores or start their own business. So we see a lot of that entrepeneurship self-employment that's helping to keep that area of vibrant. Finally bengals primary message here. Is that people who live in cities and suburbs should not think of rural america is a place that's in decline in needs help instead. They should be turning to rural america as a place that's experienced a wide diversity. Economic challenges and triumphs and therefore as a place to find ideas for how to address the big socio economic issues of the day like climate change trade immigration education healthcare. Pretty much. all of them

"And tumbled in families around the world things can get even more complicated when parents are divorced or separated some former spouses disagree about what social distancing and stay at home directive mean here's this weekend's Jennifer Katanga time are tough enough these days but if you're divorced and trying to manage children it's even more complicated Andrew Peterson of the Wall Street journal has written about some families who are struggling with the rules and joins us now and you could you talk to several couple of former couples actually people who are divorced or separated with children and you know now that the families of all kinds are finding it tough to navigate stay at home orders on social assistance saying that but it gets even more complicated and the family is that where is that parents are divorced or separated where there's two homes and oftentimes if parents who may not agree on a lot of things are not Nestle agreeing on what exactly a stay at home order means does that mean no playdates does that mean that yes on some days you know also issues of you know where to shelter in place in a farm actually I've talked a divorce lawyers and mediators you're saying I have a couple clients who have decided to your former spouses who decided to move back in together and all quarantine together which you know can raise its own issues and then other people are deciding you know it's it's safer for the kids to sort of remain and one home for the duration but if things also get a lot more complicated when you have blended family is and new partners who may have children of their own and also ex spouses so as one family one woman told me you know the idea of creating a circle around her and her children and her act was really difficult because you know there's there's a lot of other people sort of in the next act had a girlfriend who also had children and ex husband an elderly parents who had care giver coming going from their homes so I think that yeah I think get quite complicated entry are the couples trying to work these problems out to themselves or do they have someone they can turn to to help well that's the issue that parents are largely being left to hammer the is out of it you know these these sort of differences out on themselves without the help of the judicial system he'll cross the country many family courts are closed or they're only hearing I'm only considering emergency cases such as those involving domestic violence or the need for restraining orders so you know though I talked to the head of the American academy of matrimonial lawyers and she told me that you know most jurisdictions require that existing custody arrangements remain in place even when schools are closed so that's sort of the but but you know sometimes that's just not practical or maybe not state issue that she was saying is that you know the the biggest sort of differences people are having is fight there were times that children some parents wanting more or even all the time because they're concerned about potential exposure to the virus in the other parents home or others one last time you know there's some in some families where you know maybe one parent only had every other weekend but now you know the parents had majority of custody as were trying to work from home and the kids are home and so that anyone actually last time just so that he or she can get some work done we're speaking with anti Peterson the Wall Street journal like many other issues today I'm sure money is part of the problem if somebody loses a job or someone who's working extra that is got to add to the tension here right right yeah I mean I talked to some parents to know their entire income has dried up and they're very worried about you know and and their and their and their expenses income had dried up too so you know well that child support payment come well they be able to help people for people who are paying child support will they be able to continue to pay it so that is adding to the stress as well but I did talk to him one thing is that even though that the courts may be closed yes ma'am I can't get help from marriage and family therapist also from a professional mediators I talked to one mediator who said that he's actually seeing a real spike in the in calls to him from existing clients to try to help families hammer out differences about you know everything from how and when to home school their kids to you know whether or not take the kids on to hiking trails yes some parents are I had to have seen photos are very crowded hiking trails and are not keen on that so so that's because there are places where you know for the parents to turn and I click to another a couple counselor who is saying that you should actually I'm quite surprised even in couples where there has been quite a conflict that you see in this crisis really bring people together and that kind of focus on it yeah just trying to do what's best for that for the kids and again.

Or is it that they have mothers that drive them really hard, which is not a bad thing. I'm not saying it's bad at all. I'm just wondering I'm wondering is it a family thing? Probably both. Yeah. There's this expectation to succeed and perform and just go out there and slay it, isn't it interesting too that it is a cultural thing, I think and you look at the country of India. That is so poor. I mean, those people have no hope word, I mean, all the people who are successful and smart and pushing their kids they're all coming here. Exactly staying in their own country. You know, it's really really really interesting. I know some casualties the progress. You're right. God. I can't believe they're talking like that. Well, I'm not talking poorly of it. I'm actually talking very highly of it. It's admirable quality. I think there's something also just when you when you drive kids without driving them crazy. You know, you need to learn where to push in where to pull and where to hold back, but you can you can cause a kid to excel beyond what they would have excelled on their own. But you gotta be careful because you got also drive them crazy. You know, your parents push push push you could. But I think you can push too hard. Yeah. Definitely can push you hard. What's the name Todd, marina vicious, dad or right? Yeah. Yeah. I mean my. Yeah. That's okay. So you got that you got the profoundly gifted East Bay nine year old who's already in college. You got the fifteen year old math was at UC Berkeley. And then you've got people like this. Are you ready? Okay. Now, we go to this woman who was an internet sensation. Taiwanese woman known for posting pictures of herself in a bikini all over the world, she hikes, these incredible places and then selfie of her to bikini. Clearly, this is a person that wanted attention, right? Right. It's like, okay, great, you're hiking while these places that's enough take pictures as is. Wow. Look at she's in. She's on this mountain. She's on that mountain. So G G. Woo. Is her name thirty six Saturday falls into a gorge in this now national park in Taiwan calls for help via satellite phone after the fall. Of course, she's wearing a bikini. Emergency helpers can't get to her. Basically. She freezes it up. This is where the bikini thing backfired. Oh, no. If she would have been wearing proper clothing. She's taking a selfie bikini. Whoa. Crash fall. Bam. Seriously, if she would if she wasn't so focused on the bikini and she was wearing regular gear. Right. Should be fine. Little banged up. But she wouldn't be dead from hypothermia. This is I mean, what a cry for attention. And then get a tragic way Instagram culture that couple who seventy. Seventy selfie look at it as well. Have so many people that are passing away tragically for this selfie thing. That's going on right now. I am now. And she's in a bikini death by selfie. It's mine, man. It's not worth it. You get these people. I'm wondering if a selfie was involved here. This is in Jakarta. So there's a man who's at the zoo in Jakarta. And he decides he wants to get close up to the lions come on people. Nothing. Nothing can go wrong. No, no. We've got there are observation areas where you can get pretty close. But he wanted to get really close really close. So he decides to scale a twenty foot wall. They have big walls around the lion exhibits for g. And. Okay. So we're talking about the smart people in India just a moment ago because there are some incredibly, and then there were the dumb people. This is one of the dummies there have to be a couple of dummies out there. This is Indonesia that. Right. You said Jakarta. Well, okay. Yes. He was sorry. It was reported by the Jakarta Post. Okay. In India reported by the Jakarta Post, so yeah, he's in India. And he decides that he wants to get close. And of course. Two staffers her screams. Seen or heard enough stories similar to this to know better by now. Well, these are always it's kind of like socialism communism. Yeah. There are all these people think, you know. I can do this. Right. I know that it's been attempted. I what what are the statistics? Like one hundred million killed the last thing we can do better. We can do right? He's that guy. He's that guy. He's not. But it's not communism social assistance, the lion cage at other people have done this. And they all get killed. I'm gonna do it. Right. I can do this. I can do, you know interesting to the zoo zookeepers didn't shoot the lions like they would have here. You know? Yeah. They just let let the lions take let nature take its course nature.

"For people who want a flexible social assistance program but it has a more powerful lobbying coalition behind it that includes retailers includes farm state interests and because farm state interests particularly at least traditionally have had sway in the republican coalition snap has been bipartisan george w bush's administration increase snap eligibility as part of compassionate conservatism so this kind of lumbered forward as a way to help poor people that could get done and i think you know one of the big things you're seeing with this bill is not not that this is going to be enacted into law exactly as written but that that coalitionlogic has fallen apart and that there's no particular reason in the future for liberals to pursue the goal of helping poor people through the specific mechanics of food stamps as opposed to anything else that you might do that this is not like by artisan 'cause republicans on the agriculture committee want to make this program much stingy earn a lot of ways paul ryan wants to get the trump administration seems body and there's no there's nobody on the republican side who's standing up saying like no no no like food stamps are great like we should totally not cut that the whole conservative movement is bought into the theory that like this is more or less the same as cash welfare and we want to treat it more or less the same way yeah there is a really great article that marion nestle who's a can of food politics writer and professor at nyu she wrote about a few years ago she decided she was going to try and teach the twenty fourteen farm bill in a class and she thought this would be a great way for her students learn about agricultural policy and she immediately regrets this decision because the farmville has become such an amalgamation of things that really have very little to do with arms it's become.
