- What factors, such as legislation, may influence the inclusion of these stipulations?
- Can any of the terms you defined above be applied to either company based on other information you learned about them? Why, or why not?
Use the following terms in your discussion and include appropriate examples for each one:
- Glass walls
- Sticky floor
- Glass escalator
