AFL-CIO: The umbrella organization for many labor unions in the United States, with AFL standing for American Federation of Labor, and CIO the abbreviation of Congress of Industrial Organizations. The AFL-CIO began as just the AFL in 1886 as a collection of craft unions representing skilled workers. It expanded to include semiskilled and unskilled workers represented by industrial unions. Differing interests among the two groups lead to a division of the original AFL in 1938 into two separate groups -- the AFL containing craft unions and CIO containing industrial unions. This rift was closed in 1955, when the AFL and CIO merged to form the AFL-CIO.

COMPANY:

An organization, usually consisting of more than one person, that combines resources for the production and supply of goods and services. The term company is generally used synonymously with other terms such as business, firm, and enterprise. If a distinction exists, company is used in reference to a group of people engaged in production (as opposed to a single person).
Company is a generic term for an organization engaged in production. It is usually applied to a profit-seeking business firm involving a group of people. However, as a synonymous term for business, it is also used in reference to a proprietorship.

A company provides the institutional structure used by entrepreneurship to organize the production. Entrepreneurship undertakes the risk of bringing together the other factors of production and engaging production. A company provides focus and often legal standing to this process.

  • The Wacky Willy Company is an one example of a company. This corporation was formed by William J. Wackowski, an aspiring entrepreneur who had the dream of putting a stuffed tarantula in every baby's crib. Mr. Wackowski (Wild Bill) formed The Wacky Willy Company to make this dream a reality. The Wacky Willy Company, is a relatively small operation, but it is the means used by Willy the Wackmeister to produce and distribute Stuffed Amigos, this company provides the mechanism he uses to combine labor, capital, and raw materials needed to produce Stuffed Amigos.

  • Another example of a company is the partnership operated by Sean and Sally Schrumpmeyer, Attorneys at Law. Sean and Sally use the Schrumpmeyer partnership as a means of combining the resources needed to provide legal services. They combine their own legal labor resources together with other labor, land, and capital to represent the infamous and the innocent, the prosperous and the poor, the anonymous and the aristocratic.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time strolling around a discount warehouse buying club wanting to buy either a wall poster commemorating Thor Heyerdahl's Pacific crossing aboard the Kon-Tiki or decorative garden figurines. Be on the lookout for celebrities who speak directly to you through your television.

This isn't me! What am I?

Francis Bacon (1561-1626), a champion of the scientific method, died when he caught a severe cold while attempting to preserve a chicken by filling it with snow.
"It is not the straining for great things that is most effective; it is the doing of the little things, the common duties, a little better and better."
