Fighters Champions Nature gave us two. We must

treat all equally. Quiz Questions

1. Cryptocurrency is becoming a major topic in the finance and investment world. Which of the following is or was a real cryptocurrency?

A. Dogecoin - which got its name from the online series Homestar runner, base on the scene involving the character Strongbad completing his third quarter projection analysis spreadsheets when Homestar Runner interrupts him calling him his “D-O-G-E” to which Strongbad asked, what is a “doge” - a few years later the cryptocurrency Dogecoin was created. B. Catcoin - a cryptocurrency script based on the popular Bitcoin, but ultimately was “delisted” from cryptocurrency exchanges, largely due to bitter disagreements on Reddit between the users who couldn’t agree on the rules of the cryptocurrency. C. Coinye - A cryptocurrency formed in 2014, but ultimately closed down due to a copyright lawsuit by Kanye West. As billboard puts it, they were “sued into oblivion… You shined bright like a diamond for a few blissful months back in 2014.” D. These all were real cryptocurrencies.

Notes: Be careful with Cryptos, they are extremely risky - here are just 2 examples of coins that failed or aren’t working. 2. The Massachusetts Equal Pay Act went into effect on July 1, 2018. Differences in pay are only allowed under certain conditions. Which of the following are acceptable reasons to pay an employee differently:

Based on the number of Tabby cats that they currently have registered with their city or town - they give you a 2% bump in pay for each male cat and a 3% bump in pay for each female cat, effectively bridging the cat pay gap. B. Based on a seniority system and or a merit system. C. There are never any reasons to pay different salaries, regardless of the job or duties, or responsibilities.

Note: The act provides equal pay for comparable, regardless of gender. It makes it so employers can’t ask about your salary history before making a job offer, and protects your right to talk about your wages with your coworkers. 3.
