You are the vice president of a beer company in a state which sets the legal drinking age at twenty-one. Your boss asks you to organize a lobbying effort to have the drinking age reduced to eighteen. What would you do?
First I would get a some people together to help push for the change of the drinking age. Secondly I would come up with a plan to present to the my boss on how we would go by pushing for the change. I would call up the state and let them know that we want to push to change the drinking age. I would tell my boss that will be hard to do ask him if he really knows what he is asking for. This will not be an easy task to do trying to get this pass into law. All sates have the drinking age at twenty—one not eighteen and it is for a reason. To get this change would be a big deal something that has never been done before. I will explain to the boss the impact have on the community the good and the bad. How having a person that is eighteen buying beer will probably have more violence increase. Then it may drive sales out of the roof and push for other states to change the drinking age. It will be hard for the company and it will take a lot of money to pay for this to get done.
You are an accountant in a large firm. Your boss tells you to use a controversial accounting practice, which will make the company’s profits seem higher. She tells you it is only to impress stockholders and will not be used in statements submitted to the IRS. What would you do?
I would tell her that I can’t do this practice. If she wants it done she will have to do it herself. I understand that this will not be turn in to the IRS but what it is does by some mistake than what. I would tell her that this is not right and I don’t believe in this doing things way. We could lose our jobs and the company will lose more money than just telling the stockholders the truth. I can understand some things to make the company look good but this is to far way too...
