Late Morning Reads – February 13, 2019

So… anyone else have an employee show up for 20 minutes, decide they didn’t want to do the job they were hired for, and left?

How are the comment sections? Seems to be a bit better?

In the case of the disappearing employee, you can see how it happened. We now have an full-employment environment, so the possible loss of a job doesn’t have the same consequences that you would have with 10% unemployment. And, with the current generation of young employees, there is a heightened sense of personal worth and expectations. I don’t picture DeepDark as being an 18th Century employer type, but in this day and time, you never know if the scale has slid a bit too far. And a lot of other enterprises have approached employees as being low-level interchangeable parts, viewed… Read more »

I’ll add that “ghosting” goes both ways. I’ve interviewed for a number of jobs only to hear absolutely nothing from the employer (good or bad) for months on end. Two years ago, the Seattle office of a big law firm interviewed me in DC, then flew me out to Seattle for follow-ups. Still haven’t heard back from them.

Sorry about the late post but sometimes my employer actually want me to do work for him.. This is a quote from a past UAW president by the name of Walter Reuther. Walter Reuther and Henry Ford II, CEO of Ford, toured a state-of-the-art engine plant in Cleveland. As they walked about the plant, Ford gestured to the cutting-edge, automated machines, saying, “Walter, how are you going to get these robots to pay union dues?” Without missing a beat, Reuther famously replied: “Henry, how are you going to get them to buy your cars?” The question about automation remains, when… Read more »

The site is acting strangely lately. Sometimes when I post a comment the screen doesn’t refresh. It looks like the comment was never submitted. I can correct it by refreshing the screen myself, but I thought I would mention it.
You probably needed something else to do anyway.

Lets say you have a board room for 100 people. That is going to require 1500 SF min. under the fire code. The building owner will cover the items that would put his Building into insurance related liability if not done correctly, like adding a second door, reversing door swings, new door hardware, new sprinkler layout, fire alarm and any updates to wall ratings. That is standard in a tenet remodel. This leaves new lighting – energy LED min. ($17 SF), new acoustical ceiling and grids ($5 SF), upgrading electrical – which as a board room under the new codes… Read more »

A single 35 year old has sex with a 17 year old – goes to jail. How is that same 35 year old and 17 year old having sex but being married, make it all better?

Make the law to get married 18. No exceptions.

This is the very definition of an abuse of power.

I logged in just to come and post this article.

Ugh. This absolutely sickens me. What an absolute abuse of power. And one that it seems people are just resigned to. Is there no on in the legislature or judiciary willing to take this guy on and stop this behaviour?

I hope whoever primaries Ralston next makes this a central focus of their campaign against him. It is the definition of disgusting.
