    [–] Ausbildung in Deutschland - Die vielen Abbrecher sind eine gute Nachricht Quanttek 79 points ago in de

    In den nächsten Jahren werden manche Arbeitgeber den Fachkräftemangel auch dadurch zu bewältigen versuchen, dass sie selbst solchen jungen Menschen eine Chance geben, die sie bisher ignoriert haben. Andere werden sich hoffentlich und endlich nicht länger als Herrschaften gerieren, die vermeintlichen Nichtskönnern die Gnade einer Art Ausbildung gewähren - und sich dann wundern, dass die in Massen ihren Vertrag auflösen.

    Es sind ja immer dieselben Branchen, die davon betroffen sind und die scheinbar alarmierenden Abbrecherzahlen produzieren, vor allem die Gastronomie und das Sicherheitsgewerbe. Bezahlung schlecht, Arbeitsbedingungen sehr schlecht, Betriebsklima legendär schlecht - das ist nicht die attraktivste Kombination. Die jungen Menschen, die diese Betriebe fliehen, geben deshalb nicht das Ziel auf, sich ausbilden zu lassen.

    Die meisten wechseln einfach nur den Betrieb oder die Branche. Und sie ergreifen diese Gelegenheit immer dann leichten Herzens, wenn die Lage auf dem Ausbildungsmarkt für sie sehr gut ist. So wie eben jetzt.

    If you want to get a little more depressed, I recommend reading

    Mary L. Dudziak. Cold War Civil Rights: Race and the Image of American Democracy. Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press.

    or the shorter review named "The Diplomacy of Shame" by Micheal Krenn.

    She makes the argument that the Civil Rights movement could only see its success due to the Cold War and the international pressure. As 'leader of the free world' images of oppression and discrimination were America's Achilles' heel in the ideological battle against the USSR:

    she makes a convincing argument that no one can truly understand either the civil-rights movement or America’s Cold War foreign policy without grasping the very important interconnections between the two. According to Dudziak, “As presidents and secretaries of state from 1946 to the mid-1960s worried about the impact of race discrimination on U.S. prestige abroad, civil-rights reform came to be seen as crucial to U.S. foreign relations” (p. 6). So crucial, in fact, that Dudziak is led to conclude that “the Cold War helped motivate civil-rights reform” (p. 252)

    And further:

    As much as anything, the Cold War involved the United States “selling” the idea of the strength and benefits of American democracy to the rest of the world. The U.S. sales pitch involved a massive American propaganda effort utilizing the written word, film, radio, television, and other media. As Dudziak explains, however, that effort consistently ran into one particular obstacle: the widely held opinion that “racism was ‘a blot’ on the nation” (p. 23). Discrimination and violence against AfricanAmericans did not fit the story being offered to the world that portrayed the United States as a land of equality. Communists immediately seized on this weakness, and stories about the oppression of African-Americans became staples of Soviet propaganda. For U.S. officials, the conclusion was obvious: “Following World War II, anything that undermined the image of American democracy was seen as threatening world peace and aiding Soviet aspirations to dominate the world” (p. 27).

    She concludes:

    While the Cold War did help “motivate” civil-rights legislation, “it limited the field of vision to formal equality, to opening the doors of opportunity, and away from a broader critique of the American economic and political system” (p. 252)

    EDIT: 60%? Damn the post is controversial

    Ein Kind zu "abandon" ist nirgendswo positiv gesehen. Außerdem, geht es nicht darum, ob man ein Kind großziehen möchte, sondern es geht um das Recht auf körperliche Selbstbestimmung

    Instead of quietly removing the information or accepting the fine of 6,000 euros, or about $7,400, Dr. Hänel has challenged the ruling and is vowing to take it to the country’s highest court if needed. To raise awareness, she began a petition demanding a “right to information about abortion.” She pointed out that the law had been introduced by the Nazi Party in the 1930s to criminalize Jewish doctors.
