Mar 24th 2011 8:26AM From an employer perspective, there are several problems with flexible hours. Some people take advantage of them.

Americans appreciate your service, but few people are going to hire someone simply because he was a veteran. Persons over 40 do and do not get jobs depending upon their skills.

My in-laws were generous when my wife and I were first married so when my mother-in-law became ill, I let her stay for several years in our home.
Jul 14th 2010 11:09PM How does a casino go bankrupt. When players are unable to pay, criminal charges are brought in Nevada.

So not only can a casino sue you, but also the state can charge you for defaulting on markers and threaten you with prison time.).
Jul 5th 2010 4:45PM Great article. Let me summarize.
Be difficult and obnoxious, and tell your boss at least three times a day about the work you do and you will succeed. Hi, Mr. Gordon, I just wanted you to know that I did most of the work on that report, and Jan did very little.
Bosses love what you tell them how smart you are and knock other employees. Make sure you are not too passive.
1. Ever heard the saying, The squeaky wheel gets the grease? If you don't ask, you won't risk hearing no, but you also won't get what you want.
If you do average work, ask for a raise. Remember in a downturn, employers never terminate difficult, nasty, and unpleasant people; instead they are constantly promoted!
