Managers must rise to the challenge of ensuring that required hours are met and monitoring employee performance. However, overall, flexible arrangements allow for increased productivity due to reductions in absenteeism and tardiness. Permanent Part-Time Permanent part-time employees are hired on a permanent basis to work a part-time week. Unlike temporary part-time workers who are employed to fill short-term needs, permanent part-time employees enjoy the same benefits that full-time employees receive.

Preview: Preview Goal 2 Read the title and subtitle of the text Check out the author’s name Taking A First Puff: Cigarette Smoking Experiences Among Ethnically Diverse Adolescents Laura K. McCormick , Assistant Professor, Dept. of Health Promotion and Behavior, University of Georgia   According to the Surgeon General, cigarette smoking remains the single most preventable cause of premature death in the US. On average, more than 400,000 Americans die from smoking related diseases each year, a figure greater than the number of deaths due to AIDS, motor vehicle crashes, alcohol and other substances, and violence combined.   Smoking Rates among Adolescents After steady declines in cigarette smoking among high school students during the 1970s and 1980s, the trends appear to be on the increase. Recent findings from the Youth Risk Behavior Survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that overall smoking rates among high school students increased by a third between 1991 and 1997. Data from CDC surveys indicate that the proportion of 10th grade students who were daily smokers increased from 12.3% to 18.3% between 1992-96. Although 1997 MTF surveys suggest a leveling off in teen smoking rates, the increases in youth smoking during the 1990s are in sharp contrast with declines in adult smoking observed over the same time period.   Minority Adolescents and Smoking Not all adolescents are equally affected. African American youth tend to smoke at lower rates than do their Hispanic and European American counterparts. In 1997, approximately 40% of European American youth had smoked one or more times in the past 30 days as compared with 34% of Hispanic and about 23% of African American high school students. Although overall, female and male adolescent smoking rates are similar, for some ethnic groups, females smoke at higher rates than males (i.e. American Indians) while for others, the reverse seems to be true (i.e. Hispanics).   Friends: Social Approval versus Social Coercion Taken together, studies suggest that peers play complex and differential roles in the smoking experiences of adolescents from diverse ethnic backgrounds. Although adults tend to use the phrase 'peer pressure' in characterizing the role of other young people on smoking initiation by adolescents, very few of the teens described instances of peer pressure in their smoking narratives. For the most part, adolescents described social interactions coupled with a desire to be accepted that provided the reasons to try smoking.
