an update for the week of december 19, 2005
today's workplace: the employee rights blog
Peace and Good Will Towards Workers: It Starts at Home: It's the holiday season, where you can read all kinds of heart-warming stories designed to make you feel all warm, fuzzy, and generous inside. However, if you're an American worker, there isn't that much good news around right now: a New York City transit strike, massive corporate layoffs among former industry leaders, and an increasing willingness by employers generally to lay off workers during the holidays. But a couple of recent stories indicate that there are some executives out there keeping their workers' interests in mind. Why? These stories indicate it all starts at home.
