Working Wounded Blog: Gauging Price Gouging

"The first words of a syndicated story from The Washington Post on August 12, 2001, were, "European firms find American acquisitions a good starting place for cut backs." It is a consequence of our legal system that it is easier to fire people here than in most developed countries. This book is about why this is, why it's bad and why something should be done about it. It is also about what you can do about it now."

Working Wounded Mailbag

"The strangest job title I ever ran across was when I was in the U.S. Air Force. Sitting on the sergeant's desk in Roads & Grounds was the title "Chief Operator LMW5B". When asked what that meant, the sergeant stated, "Chief Operator of a Lawn Mower With 5 Blades."
