What happened to me when I was trying to fly home recently is no different than what happens to people every day. My flight from Memphis, Tenn., to San Diego was cancelled at the last minute. The airline assured me that they could get me home by noon the next day, fully 15 hours after they had promised to do when I bought the ticket. So I was no longer flying from Memphis to Dallas ...

Today's workers are obviously attached to their laptops, cell phones, Blackberries and pagers. Thirty-seven percent of employees, according to Yahoo! HotJobs' annual virtual workplace survey that questioned more than 1,465 participants, are more relaxed than stressed when carrying a wireless device to stay in contact with work. And 42 percent of workers feel indifferent toward their gadgets. Tom Musbach, managing editor of Yahoo! HotJobs, finds it interesting that most employees think it is normal to ... [full story]

It has always been a bit curious the way most employers treat part-time workers like second-class citizens. Part-time positions rarely pay well and most are at or just above the minimum wage. Even in jobs where full-time and part-time workers perform the same tasks, full-time workers are often paid more. Fifteen years ago, I spoke to a chief executive about his part-time workers. The head of this retail chain explained that he needed part-time workers ... [full story]

It seems that when the economy is sputtering like it is today, more people complain about their jobs. It's a pretty common affliction which is probably more representative of generational restlessness and employer attitudes than it is about soured jobs. Still, at times like this many workers feel like trapped animals, backed into a corner and looking for any way out. A bad economy captures everyone's attention. Managers pay closer attention to costs and productivity. ... [full story]

The average American male stands just a bit over 5 feet 9 inches. And, for every inch a man is taller than that, he can expect to earn $789 more per year. That means that someone who is 6-foot-2 typically earns $3,945 more per year than someone 5-foot-9, or $157,000 more over the course of a 40-year career. It is also true that exceptionally good-looking people are more likely to get hired for just about ... [full story]

Not all jobs will be affected by the weakening economy. Education, energy, health care and security are some industries that are expected to survive, or even prosper, according to Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc., an outplacement agency. "Certain industries are particularly vulnerable during recessions, including retail, manufacturing, the financial sector and technology," says John A. Challenger, chief executive officer. "However, there are always some areas that seems to be recession-resistant. These often change from recession ... [full story]

When I hear my friends complain about their work lives, the continuing theme I hear often is that they don't respect who they work for. Not many can articulate it that way. They just tell me they don't like their bosses. I've thought about that and come to the realization that workers often don't respect their bosses because their bosses don't respect them. Bruce Katcher, an organizational psychologist and president of the Discovery Systems consulting ... [full story]

For many years, I rode an elevator to work with a woman who looked like she was being ordered to walk a gangplank. I didn't know her at all, but I could tell she was not a happy camper. I saw her outside the office one day and she was laughing and enjoying herself. Obviously, this was someone who needed another job. It's like that sometimes, even when you don't realize it. Little annoyances about ... [full story]
