SENEGAL, AFRICA – Hip Hop, Beats and Rhymes have become the language of youth in the politics of Senegal. The campaigns that took place last month, for presidential elections, witnessed a huge involvement of hip hop artists and rap beats. And the reason for that is Demographics.
The average age of Senegal person is around 19 years. And this age group comprises of mostly the rappers. In the last elections of 2012, country’s largest social movement took place. Rappers were among the major founders of this social movement. That is the reason why this year’s election also includes a lot of rappers. All the leading candidates are running their campaigns with at least one rapper by their side.
One of the professors at Vassar College, Zachariah Mampilly, shares, “Many young people turn to hip-hop artists as being kind of the voice of the streets and providing them with a way to think about politics. Especially in the most recent presidential election, the use of rappers was a remarkably cynical attempt by these politicians to gain popularity with youth.”
Hip Hop is being used as a powerful medium to influence the youth. And this kind of power is not just limited to politics.
Journal Rappé, a newscast for people of Senegal, raps the news to the beat. It does not produce any new information. Rather, it picks the news that is already shared on televisions and mix it with a taste of music to reach the youth in an entertaining manner. Initially started out through YouTube, it soon caught the attention of mainstream media, just with its talent to attract wide number of netizens. And that shows how important beats have become to the youth of Senegal.
Meathead Movers Announces a Raise in its Entry Level Pay to $15 per Hour
Meathead Movers, a San Luis Obispo-based moving company, has taken a decision to increase the entry level pay for all movers and packers. The company has announced its move after taking into consideration the struggles of student-athletes who work as movers for Meathead. In the 22-year history, this is the highest raise ($3 per hour) that has been witnessed by its employees. This move would not only encourage more student-athletes to join Meathead movers, but would also provide more employment opportunities for them. But the raise for the Fresno location will be in the paychecks of 70 out of the total 80 employees.
Aaron Steed, CEO of Meathead Movers, has said that it was a subject of worry for the company as its student employees had been having a tough time meeting their ends meet due to the high cost of living. In order to find the optimal solution to this problem, they decided to figure out the ways to make money without disturbing the schedules of athletes. He said that raising the pay was the possible solution to ensure stability in the lives of student-athletes. Along with the pay-rise of employees, Meathead Movers is also planning to introduce around 200 employees in its five branches before the commencement of its busy season. Similar to this company, Phoenix Movers has also made its name for updating its policies for the welfare of its employees.
Meathead Movers, who currently has over 700 employees, handles more than 20,000 local movers per annum. This is what makes it the largest independent moving company. According to Steed, after this pay raise move, more student-athletes would show their interest for movers and packers service. He also hints about the future target of the company to emerge as the highest earning company due to the highest ability of its employees.
