The US is part of a very small club of nations that don’t require: Time off each week, paid annual leave and paid maternity leave -

motherjones:

Productivity has surged, but income and wages have stagnated for most  Americans. If the median household income had kept pace with the  economy since 1970, it would now be nearly $92,000, not $50,000.
Plus, 11 other charts that would really piss you off…if you had time to read them.

“Fuck you! Fuck all of you! I’m fucking through with this! I’VE HAD IT! I’ve been doing this for 28 fucking years and I can’t take it anymore. And for the fucking asshole who told me to fuck off: fuck you! That’s it! I’m done! Fuck you all!”

When I first heard about this story, I immediately thought, “What an idiot”.  But after reading more of the details (here), I’m surprised it took this long for him to snap and that his is probably the best corporate exit I’ve heard of in a very long time.  Of course he’s screwed for his next gig, well at least for awhile but I have no doubt he’ll land safely on the ground somewhere. ;) huh…

Tall people make more money »

Tall folks earn $789 more per inch per year, a figure that’s stayed steady for the past five decades in both the U.S. and U.K. And I found that much of it is behavioral. Tall people consistently display a few behaviors that are directly correlated to success, which can be mimicked by anyone. For example, sociologists find that coworkers tend to give tall people four feet of personal space, about the same amount they give to their bosses. And tall people are also more likely to be the “leader” in any group, whether choosing a lunch spot or a corporate takeover target, a habit that develops young, when other children naturally relate to tall kids as older peers.
