I think it's unfair for the employer or business to put people through hopes of getting a good job and maybe fair pay ( carrot on a stick ) and at the end of 3 grueling interviews, And possibly a written exam to find out that the pay and benefits are way less than what you Deem As acceptable I think it would be just fair and upfront to say what they are That way would actually save the employer and the Is possible future employee time and money #whatdoyouthink

My brother just brought this up with me, he got to the 3rd interview for a job he really liked, but then found out the salary was super low, with poor benefits.

Everyone has a minimum in mind when applying for jobs, and it just saves everyone time in applications. And it seems there's a growing number of people who are frustrated with job listings not including the salary range.

Do you think it's possible for pay info to be upfront? #watercooler #jobsearch #WhatDoYouThink

Target is taking a big step this year by permanently closing their stories on Turkey Day.

Should more companies do this for the benefit of their employees? #worklifebalance #WhatDoYOUthink?

I love that Target does that. But every business cannot close - like hospitals, pharmacies, gas stations and so on, because people need to be able to access their goods/services.

In the retail environment it makes no sense to open on certain holidays when historical sales don't justify employee expense.

It is both. Overtime when handled correctly can be a blessing. But people have gotten so used to overtime they take it for granted and then in walks upper management who removes OT and just like that bankruptcy cases ensue

Making jobs better means giving workers more power. This may mean providing all Americans with a guaranteed annual income. Do you think this will ever happen? #LivingWage #jobsearch #WhatDoYOUthink?
