Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:The theory of compensating wage differentials

Explanation:

The theory of compensating wage differentials is theory that explains the differences that occurs in wages between people.

When everything else is the same a high rate pay may refer to the fact that the job may be less attractive so since the job may be undesirable a compensating wage may be used to make up for this in order to pursued people to accept the job or as an encouragement to change their mind and consider the offer that may seem unattractive.

A compensating differential can also occur in a desirable job but it won't be positive in this case because when a job is desirable a potential employee may willingly take the job even if it offers lower wages just because it is desirable

Working in a coal mine has many undesirable features that may not attract someone to it hence may have to explain the high wages and being a secretary may be attractive or may be a compromise for Jasmine in the lack of available jobs.

Answer:

The only US state to call its political subdivisions "parishes" is Louisiana.

Explanation:

Louisiana is one of the fifty states that, together with Washington D.C., form the United States of America. Its capital is Baton Rouge and its most populous city, New Orleans. It is located in the southern region of the country. It limits to the north with Arkansas, to the east with the Mississippi and Pearl rivers, which separate it from Mississippi, to the south with the Gulf of Mexico (Atlantic Ocean) and to the west with Texas (most of this border forms the Sabine River). It was admitted to the Union on April 30, 1812, as state number 18.  Other important cities are Lafayette and Shreveport. Louisiana is the only state in the country whose political subdivisions are called parishes, which are local governments equivalent to the counties of the other states. The most populous parish is the parish of East Baton Rouge, and the largest by area is the parish of Plaquemines.

One good reason to take a college visit is that it provides you with an opportunity to explore your options. There are so many types of colleges and campuses to consider it's a great idea to check at least one out to a feel for what your preferences may be when it comes to higher education.

Visiting a college campus can be extremely motivating. On campus everyone is driven toward better their future and becoming contributing members of society. Students really create a great environment to excite your own drive for success and desire to learn. You can explore all the different buildings on campus and consider where you might like to study, live, eat and hang out. Some colleges have really cool common areas where you can relax and meet up with friends or catch up on your reading, as a visitor you can try out these areas too.

Another interesting reason to visit a college to is learn who the alumni are (or people who graduated for that college are) . Often times you'll recognize some of the most famous alumni and it's interesting to see where these people got their start, learned their skills, and even where they ate their lunches! You really can have a lot of fun, get motivated, and gain some real life experience on a college visit.

Which best summarizes the increase in costs at public four year colleges over the past 30 years

Answers

More than thirty years later, enrollment in American colleges and universities continues to advance, much faster than inflation.

This fall, Harvard enrollment and annual fees (not including room and board) will cost more than 17 times the cost of 1971-72.

Not only do tuition costs at elite universities such as Harvard exceed the government's consumer price index. If the long-term trend is observed, university enrollment has increased almost six percent above the rate of inflation.

The average cost of tuition and fees of a private, non-profit, four-year university this school year was more than 17 times the cost in 1971-1972.

In four-year public schools, tuition and fees cost around 18 times the cost in 1971-1972, according to the College Board.

They have increased more than public two-year colleges but less than private four- year colleges.
