Jun 9th 2011 3:06PM firing is not easy but the person generally deserves it. Lay-offs are horrible because you have to dismiss someone who must lose their job through no fault of their own. Extremely painful for all. This is wht happens when jobs move offshore!
May 28th 2011 11:11AM When I was a kid it was a tradition that when you got to a birthday, you would get one smack on the butt for each year, one for good luck, and one to grow on. it was a joke and every kid I know of got one. OF course, there were not as many bloodsucking lawyers then!I I was not from Iowa, I was from Baltimore and your buddies gave you the same thing, only harder!!!!
May 27th 2011 12:43AM Oprah will not be back because she will be Obama's VP and Biden will get kicked under the bus. All you Oprah Stepford wives will now get stuff taken from you rather than given
Apr 26th 2011 8:08AM Who is getting married in the UK? I thought from the media it was Prince William and Princess Diana.
Apr 25th 2011 8:18AM Yes, Janet, I have a job, I probably support you and your family with my taxes!
Apr 23rd 2011 7:38AM When the dress code went out, interestingly, so did creativity. Why, I don't know, but perhaps it is because people don't think they are important now and don't have to create. Today, it is hard to tell a drug addict from an engineer, they all dress the same, don't shave, or don't use constructive makeup, and look like bums. A dress code gives a person a feeling of belonging, of empowerment, being civilized and givesd them respect and self respect. I wear a suit and have observed how customers will address me before they address my superiors who dress casual. If you want to get a point across, a dress code will always receive the respect and be heard. I also agree with Joe, the teachers, many of whom I have fired from jobs for lack of intelligence, capability, and smelling bad, have caused a lot of the attitude. Probably why our colleges are dropping off so bad.
Apr 18th 2011 4:32PM Is this the same Pickens whose father was going to save the world from energy problems and then teamed up with Gore to shear the sheeple??
Apr 10th 2011 8:58PM This is really, really important! Almost as important as whether we have enough toilet paper.
Mar 17th 2011 1:15PM As if the media is going to say ther is a productivity loss!? They need the exposure for business. Maybe the productivity isn't lost at the TV station!
Mar 2nd 2011 7:03AM E-mails are the bane of the era. They are ridiculous and waste time for the most part because there are so many sent that have no real importance. One person I work with sends thousands of e-mails and takes up the in box such that it takes hours to read it all, but you have to do so because it just might be important. In the old days when a person showed up at your des or work station or called on the phone, you knew it was important or relevant. Now, people send e-mails with no real indication of importance (they never flag it as such) so a lot may be lost if you don't read it.
The computer seems to be the biggest problem yet, these machines can crank out reports in many different forms and formats and the boss asks for all of it whether he/she uses it or not and everyon has to read it. Granted there is a difference in technology, but remember the Greatest Generation created the P-51 in 9 months from first paper to pencil to full production. The F-35 may never be ready and most aircraft take 10 years to create now even though they are an evolution, not a revolution. Why-lack of personal communication and computers being used incorrectly. We accomplished more creatativity before the computer. We can just keep records better now.
