Why shouldn’t labor laws be universal?

No, the workplace, equal opportunity and anti discrimination laws in the USA, are over thirty years behind the rest of the world.

Outside the USA we don't have to march or protest for equal human and civil rights and freedoms from discrimination, because we already have them equally. Our wages, even the minimum wages are over three times more than US Americans are paid. Plus we get six weeks fully paid annual leave, fifteen days fully paid sick leave and many other benefits such as employer paid superannuation.

None of us have to work two jobs to make a decent wage, or are ever lowly paid by commission and live on tips, like millions of workers in the United States. There is no such thing as women's jobs nor men's jobs, it's all equal opportunity employment, wages and work conditions.

Unlike the USA we aren't forced to comply to anything or ever sign anything. Nor are are we gender discriminated at eighteen like a US American males are. Who are legally threatened by federal law, to sign up to the military select service system, or face five years imprisonment and loss of rights in the land of the free.

It's against the law and criminal offense in mine and many global country's to ever use any form of discrimination, or use written or drawn vilification to discriminate, other citizens. Regardless of there ethnicity, colour, gender, age, sexual orientation, non or visual disability or non or personal beliefs.

This is why it's unethical to make workplace laws universal, being our country's laws and freedoms from discrimination in our countries are different. We all have them, and US Americans don't within there workplace or society, in there land of the free country.

Best shoes to wear to an amusment park? (Universal Studios)?

Best shoes to wear to an amusment park? (Universal Studios)?

Well, you have a couple of options.

Sneakers are best, but none of these people are actually pointing out any alternatives to sneakers.

(And, I know the feeling! I went to Disney once and got them soaked in a MONSOON, and then had to try and dry them in the hotel dryer...)

I wore a pair of Tevas last week when I went to Disney, and I had no problems. They held up. Plus, they dry fairly quickly when they do get wet. One of the people I went with wore Teva Flip flops and she did fine in those for the entire trip.

I wore sandals with a strap around the ankle to make sure they stayed on. I like the ones that show my toenails since I usually have those painted an obnoxious color (right now it's glittery purple/blue).

Tevas are not ugly by any means. You can find plenty of pairs that are fairly stylish, or at least, are plain enough to wear and just use nail polish as an accent.

I think you're a little too concerned about fashion in this case. I suggest finding a pair of black Tevas or something.

They have some with pink accents. Those are close to what I had. They were super comfortable.

If you can do it, Crocs have some nice sandals, but I wouldn't recommend the plastic-strapped ones because they tend to rub and cause blisters... But I have a nice pair of Women's Capri Suede flip flops by Crocs in Hot Pink with black accents and they are the most comfy flip-flops I've ever owned... But flip flops are not the best choice.

You could also go with a standard leather/suede Birkenstock type sandal (i.e. Jesus sandals). But make sure you've got the soft footbed and not the hard footbed...

But, if you want to go with "stylish" flip-flops, then by all means, go ahead, but if you're in pain, that's your fault.

Brown v Board of Education:

Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote for the unanimous Court in Brown:

“ Today, education is perhaps the most important function of state and local governments. Compulsory school attendance laws and the great expenditures for education both demonstrate our recognition of the importance of education to our democratic society. It is required in the performance of our most basic public responsibilities, even service in the armed forces. It is the very foundation of good citizenship. Today it is a principal instrument in awakening the child to cultural values, in preparing him for later professional training, and in helping him to adjust normally to his environment. In these days, it is doubtful that any child may reasonably be expected to succeed in life if he is denied the opportunity of an education. Such an opportunity, where the state has undertaken to provide it, is a right which must be made available to all on equal terms

Women's suffrage

Women's suffrage has been granted (and been revoked) at various times in various countries throughout the world. In many countries women's suffrage was granted before universal suffrage, so women (and men) from certain races and social classes were still unable to vote.

The first women's suffrage (with the same property qualifications as for men) was accidentally granted (the word "people" was used instead of "men") in New Jersey in 1776 and rescinded in 1807. The Pitcairn Islands granted women's suffrage in 1838. Various countries and states granted restricted women's suffrage in the latter half of the nineteenth century, starting with South Australia in 1861. The 1871 Paris Commune granted voting rights to women, but they were taken away with the fall of the Commune and would only be granted again in July 1944 by Charles de Gaulle.

The first unrestricted women's suffrage in terms of voting rights (women were not initially permitted to stand for election) in a major country was granted in New Zealand. The women's suffrage bill was adopted mere weeks before the general election of 1893.

The first to grant universal suffrage and allow women to stand for parliament was South Australia, in 1894. The first European country to introduce women's suffrage was Finland, where women were granted the right both to vote (universal and equal suffrage) and to stand for election in 1906. The world's first female members of parliament were also in Finland, when in the 1907 parliamentary election 19 women were elected to Parliament of Finland.

In the years before the First World War, Norway (1913) and Denmark also gave women the vote, and it was extended throughout the remaining Australian states. Canada granted the right in 1917 (except in Quebec, where it was postponed until 1940), as did the Soviet Union. British women over 30 and all German and Polish women had the vote in 1918 and American women in states that had previously denied them suffrage were allowed the vote in 1920. Women in Turkey were granted voting rights in 1926. In 1928, suffrage was extended to all British women. One of the last jurisdictions to grant women equal voting rights was Liechtenstein in 1984. Since then only a handful of countries have not extended the franchise to women, usually on the basis of certain religious interpretations. Bhutan allows one vote per property, a policy that many claim in practice prevents women from voting.
