Considering a career move and worrying about your wallet? Fret no more. Thanks to a new federal rule, you can now know for sure how much money the median worker makes at a certain company.
As part of the recession-inspired Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, public companies now have to tell the Securities and Exchange Commission about the pay ratio between their median employee and chief executive officer.

Not that I particularly have a problem with Wally World, but it's a little scary to me when any one player controls such a large portion of the market.

In case being a fast-food employee wasn't hard enough, KFC is now putting its workers through a bizarre initiation rite: a creepy BioShock-esque virtual reality "escape room" replete with narration from an omnipresent, mildly demonic-sounding Colonel Sanders.

This guy from Portland, Oregon just lost his job at Home Depot for violating company policy, which doesn’t sound like such a big deal until you realize that the reason he broke the rules was because he was stopping a child from getting kidnapped!

Are you over 40? Do you have a nasty habit of working over 25 hours weekly because you like food and shelter? Well, you might be limiting your intelligence according to a study released in February by researchers for the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research in Australia.
You'd think that a sheepskin means more in the workplace but experience is the best teacher out there. If you're like me or this shlub, you've done your time in the food biz. Most of these lessons, you probably picked up on also.

As Danny Neilson lounges on a couch in the "chill room" of L.A.'s Laserium, after a Friday-night show last year, he takes a moment to pat himself on the back for a job well done. "We really have no competition with some of the effects we're doing in there," he says, gesturing toward the viewing room, where he's just guided a small audience through a 45-minutes laser journey set to the Pink Floyd classic, The Dark Side of the Moon. "We're trying to preserve the art form."
As "chief laserist," Neilson's art is bringing music alive by choreographing the movements of lasers - tens of thousands of dollars worth - like an orchestra conductor.
When my family's fortune suddenly went kaput, I discovered a talent for convincing unsuspecting saps that I can read the future. But when they started telling me their darkest fears, I was the one who got scared out of my mind.
Mindless slide after slide in your endless deck of slides. Somebody thinks that they are effectively getting their message across to coworkers, colleagues, or clients. They're just wasting time.

Here's an oldie but a goodie. Scott Adams (creator of Dilbert) probably has nothing to do with this aside from the one pertinent comic strip at the top of the page, but if you need a random B.S. phrase for your next staff meeting, here is a great place to start.

Scattered across the United States and Canada is a series of privately owned and operated family campgrounds, all called Jellystone Park. Every one of the 83 parks pays employees to put on a costume each day of the camping season and make the rounds as an overweight, 57-year-old anthropomorphic cartoon kleptomaniac named Yogi Bear. In one of those parks, in one of those costumes, I am that employee.
