The Power of Knowledge on Labor Laws
Knowledge is the perception of truth and facts. It is the accumulation of facts from different sources such as observation, the senses, experiments, studies, and experience. Knowledge is both constructive and destructive depending on the use and the user. It creates something out of nothing and destroys everything if unwisely used. A thing that is given to us necessary for survival, even animals have their own knowledge but not as developed as ours. Our knowledge is of the highest level, it distinguishes us from other creature. It allows us to adopt, think steps and handle situations perfectly. It also serves as our primary protection because it readily gives the basis for our judgment.
In this modern age, knowledge is of trade meaning it can be bought and sold and everyone has the access to this knowledge. The world change rapidly, that the battle shifted from bloody wars into information domination, where in those who have enough knowledge can rise up or survive while those who have none shall stay in the bottom and neglected.
One of the groups that need knowledge is the labor sector. The sector is composed of minimum wage workers, minors, and many more. These sectors frequently suffer from abuse and any forms of injustice. Often times they can’t do anything about it, especially if you don’t know what to do.
The state the protector of its people and the one, who promulgates the law, is also the greatest source of knowledge. The knowledge they possess are for the use of everyone especially to interpretation of the laws.
One of the tools used by Arizona officials to give knowledge is the State labor law posters, which contains the laws on employment and various rights of the employees contained in AZ labor law posters. This is to inform them about their rights under the law and the protection they may have in case of breach.
These posters give the employees the ability to fight back any form of injustice and discrimination that they experienced and noticed. It allows them speak for themselves without having to doubt that they would not make any difference or they would just be laughed at.
Knowledge is the tool to make any difference it gives the capacity to stand for what is right. The use of knowledge allowed the world to change and allowed us to be aware of everything around us. Its power is limitless, that one must exercise caution on using it for abusing it will lead to destruction.
