Office Talk & Weight Obsession

Every single day, I sit in the kitchen and listen to conversations about weight, diets, health, etc. Something tells me I'm not the only one. It's become an office-wide obsession. We even have voluntary weight loss contests throughout the year, an office balance and special rebates if we join the local gym, etc. The social pressure... Continue Reading →

Anything under a living wage is slavery

Every business owner arguing that paying workers a living wage will dramatically affect their personal profits should be absolutely humiliated and ashamed to admit that all this time their profits came from paying people a poverty wage and are effectively finding excuses for slavery. If your business cannot earn enough to pay your employees a living wage...

Their job is both demanding physically and emotionally. They are... Continue Reading →

Office Party & Introverts

Most businesses I've worked at have had annual holiday parties and/or summer events. Some even encourage social outings throughout the year. This is a nightmare for introverted employees.

Is your point of view sexist?

There are numerous examples of double standards when it comes to men and women. Some are easier to see than others. Some points of views are so ingrained in our lives that we don't even notice them.
