Prepare: Prior to beginning your reflection this week, complete all course readings and assigned videos, and the Discussion, “Policy and Your Life.”
Reflect: Once you have completed these assignments, think about how federalism and the U.S. Congress have or will affect your life. The federal structure ensures that there is a clear line between local, state, and federal government regulations, policies, and oversight—sometimes! Think about how federal statues affect your work or will affect your work in the future. Does Congress have oversight of any of the processes or products in your workplace? Do the government regulations, policies, and oversight sometimes conflict with local or state regulations, policies, and oversight?
Write: In your initial post of, based on your current or desired job, complete the following:
- Describe how a federal policy affects your current or desired workplace.
- Explain what role Congress has in establishing workplace conditions in your current or desired job.
Fully respond to all parts of the prompt and write your response in your own words. Your initial post should be 200 to 250 words. Support your position with APA citations from two or more of the assigned resources required for this discussion. Please be sure that you demonstrate understanding of these resources, integrate them into your argument, and cite them properly.
