Happy Labor Day !

Time to reflect…

The unemployment rate is below 4%.

Thanks to all who do the work so that I can sit back and enjoy my retirement.

A recently reported study of 1,015 LinkedIn users “sought insights into how organizations attract, engage, motivate as well as retain workers and build the kind of workplace that employees promote.”

(a) Smiling is dictated by employer

(b) Fundamentally happy with job & pay

9 out of 10 answered to the affirmative.




Most of the violations were relatively minor – e.g. accepting tips.

But, some were doozies.
