WIRTW #460 (the “my favorite week of the year” edition)

This week is my favorite week of the year, because five nights from now I’ll be standing front and center at the Beachland Ballroom watching the Old 97’s. Yes, I know I’m a fanboy. And you know what? I don’t care. I’ve come to grips with it. I can’t wait to hear live for the first time most of their latest release, Graveyard Whistling, including this destined to be classic, “Jesus Loves You”.

Come see what all the fuss is about. Tickets are only $20, and, for now are still available, but will sell out before the lights dim Wednesday night. And, if you’re not in Cleveland, please support these guys by checking them out when they come through your town, this spring, summer, or beyond.

Update: Earlier this week, the House passed the Working Families Flexibility Act. Much of the press surrounding this bill frames it as a law that will take away overtime pay from employees. Click here to read why this spin is flat out wrong (hint: an employer cannot force comp time on any employee, and an employee must agree, in writing, to accept comp time in lieu of overtime pay).

Here’s what I read this week:



HR & Employee Relations

Wage & Hour


OSHA & Safety
