I have included the first Milestone Paper (and the corresponding Milestone 1 Rubric) for your reference. The professor did not like that I didn’t include 1-2 policies and debate them in this paper and apparently we are required to do this in each paper so I will need you to incorporate that into the Milestone 2 paper. Professor comments are: What is the policy being addressed in this paper? What is the governmental action in question? In all your papers, you should have an intro, body, and conclusion. This paper is about policy and policy implications or impact in business organizations. Thus, you should find 1-2 policies and debate them throughout the entire paper back and forth. Remember this is a policy paper – you need to find the policy and drive it throughout the paper. So I will need a couple of policies to be incorporated into the first paper I attached AND I will need the Milestone 2 paper in it’s entirety with at least 2 policies again…they can be the same as the first paper, but they need to be debated throughout. Starbucks is my chosen company.
