In this paper I will present results of my research regarding domestic service in Germany. I will also provide the general information about domestic service, what it is used for and by whom, as well as include general points about cultural and economic issues.
Domestic service is generally referred to as the service provided by a domestic worker who can either live within the employer’s household or come to do the cleaning and other assigned task on particularly established days. Domestic service provide the families with opportunities for doing their own jobs, spending free time the way the want it, as well as create additional working places. Many families have a strong necessity in flexible support in their daily lives, and in Germany this domestic service market has a great potential for development due to mismatch of demand and supply. Thousands of working places can be possibly generated in the sector of domestic service, but only if there are right economic conditions and sufficient investments.
Currently the United States is the example of president elections performed indirectly with an electoral college. The Electoral College consists of 538 popularly elected representatives (“electors”) representing 50 states and one federal district (D.C.), who formally elect the President and Vice President of the United States.
Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution specifies number of electors entitled to every state (from 3 electors for small states up to 55 for California) and that each state is free to decide how its electors should be chosen. Number of a state’s entitled electors is equal to its total Congressional representation (in both houses); District of Columbia has three electors and non-state territories having zero electors. Normally, the electors cast all their votes for the candidate who won in the popular vote held in their respective states, however in some states there are no legal restrictions for that and, technically, electors can vote differently from the results of popular vote.
In May 2008, the same-sex marriages were allowed in California. However, after that there was a referendum in November 4, where fifty-two percent of pullers voted against new law. Thus, the majority supported so called Proposition 8. As the result, there was included correction that states that marriage is the union between man and woman. Nevertheless, many people still disagree with the Proposition 8 that, as I think, wrongfully reduces same-sex marriage legalization.
