Working for Less: Why We Need Workplace Fairness: It's the time of year when everyone contemplates their past and their future, beginning a self-assessment process designed to make 2006 the best year ever, or at least free of 2005's mistakes. Is it a time for big changes in your life? Or has something validated that you're headed in the right direction? One look at a recent Chicago Tribune article has convinced me that there's more of a need for Workplace Fairness and our work than ever. If the story doesn't almost bring tears to your eyes, no matter how long that you've been involved with fairness issues in the workplace, then perhaps it's time for your own reassessment.
