Dignity at Work
Human dignity, the ability to establish a sense of self-worth and selfrespect and to enjoy the respect of others, is necessary for a fully realized life. Working with dignity is a fundamental part of achieving a life well-lived, yet the workplace often poses challenging obstacles because of mismanagement or managerial abuse. Defending dignity and realizing self-respect through work are key to workers’ well-being. Insuring the dignity of employees is equally important for organizations as they attempt to make effective use of their human capital.

U.S. Department of Labor reported today. These workers accounted for 55.5 percent of total employment.
About 2 of every 5 employed individuals connected to the Internet or used e-mail while on the job.
These proportions were slightly higher than those measured in the prior survey conducted in September
2001. (See table A.)
These findings are from a special supplement to the October 2003 Current Population Survey (CPS).
The stories in the corpus were chosen randomly and the only criterion for rejection was too large a percentage of quoted material. Only the first two hundred words or so of each story were included in the corpus in order to allow a greater samplin~ of reports. The discourse principles at work are fairly represented in an excerpt o ~ this length. The input to the DUMP program consists of a llst of hand-~6rsed sentences making up each story.
