an update for the week of march 6, 2006
today's workplace: the employee rights blog
Oscar-Nominated Films Tell Real-Life Workplace Stories: Now that the Academy Awards have all been awarded, the suspense has ended, as the movie Crash surprisingly took home Best Picture, and the eight-times nominated Brokeback Mountain earned its director, Ang Lee, the Best Director Oscar. This year was nonethless remarkable for the number of nominated movies that educated us about important social issues. As Workplace Fairness was most pleased to observe, the workplace was not excluded from Hollywood's lens this year, as the movies North Country and Brokeback Mountain both featured the kinds of stories that are all too real to far too many workers.
