American culture portrays the beliefs, traditions, and social norms of the United States. It is a country of immigrants. To me, American culture has various meanings, because the US is a very multicultural country, and all these cultures have a major influence on American culture.

 

I don’t think there is an American culture that isn’t shared or influenced by other cultures. Also American culture is so vast depending on cultural groups and what part of the country you’re in. I think the definition that you are looking for doesn’t exist. I do think this is the beauty of the country: its culture is diversity which is totally unique to any other country in the world.

American culture to me means that it is the culture of the entire nation of America but on the terms of the common things found. Since it is diverse in culture, it can not refer to one culture but things like thanksgiving, Christmas, memorial day… are aspects of American culture.

I think that women should be competing for men’s jobs because there is no gender difference in terms of qualities and we are all equal in front of the justice. However, some jobs might be easier for man like the ones that involve hard labor. So women should avoid this type of jobs.

I believe in equality. I think if women desires to get a “men’s job”, she should not be discriminated based on sex. I do see that everyday there is more women involved in politics, government, technology, etc, and back in the days such fields were only for men. However, when it comes to physical labor like road construction, I do not think that it is good for females to be employed in such field.

 

Since we unfortunately live in a male dominated society, women should not compete for men’s jobs because they will not receive the fair salary or priveleges that men do. So women should focus more on fields that are appropriate for women such as teaching, managing… and leave men’s jobs such as mechanical technicians for men.

One time I was going to the ATM to withdraw money. An old couple were infront of me, when the lady was putting her passcode on the screen her husband looked away. I was shocked of the respect to privacy and personal property in the American culture. In the arab culture, men have access to everything including women’s property

 

When I met my American friend once after a summer break, I was going to kiss them because that is a normal habit in our middle eastern culture. My friend backed up and was confused. I felt embarrassed and confused as well. Then he explained to me that guys here kisses only girls. With guys, they just hug.

 

When I first came to America, I was very confused by the way women dress. In a lot of places in the US you would see females wearing very revealing clothing, which totally exposes the body. Back home, such dressing manner for women is unacceptable.

Since this is a job related issue, I have to respect the standards and comply to the rules and morals. However, I do not want to screw my friends up. So I would ask her if I can warn the employees before I report them. Besides that, I do not want lose my friends so I will ask her if my name will be published as reporting for such moral issues. I will also ask about the penalties that they will receive. Lastly I will ask what I will benefit from this work ?

 

List of issues I will discuss:

1-      What will happen to those employees who are reported?

2-      Would I have to confront any of them in case they refused to take the responsibility?

3-      Why can not we stress the issues in a general meeting?

4-      Am I going to be held reliable on their actions ?

5-      Could I tell them that there are cameras and monitors installed in every room ?

 

  1. Is the report anonymous?
  2. Is such assignment included in my job description?
  3. What if the company will give a lecture on such subjects?
  4. Is there a possibility to hire a person for such work since my colleagues are my friends (it is very personal to me)?
  5. Could I give them warning before reporting ?
