Friday Morning Mix

today's action Save an Acre of the Whale Nursery
for Earth Day

We give gifts for holidays, birthdays and life celebrations. So why shouldn't we give gifts on Earth Day? NRDC has the perfect suggestion.

Every year, gray whales migrate thousands of miles to their pristine sanctuary: Laguna San Ignacio on Mexico's Baja Peninsula. But new threats are emerging that could despoil it forever.

NRDC is working to permanently protect the whale sanctuary by putting 500,000 acres around the lagoon off-limits to industrial development -- and your gift will protect one of those acres in the name of a loved one!

It is the Middle Class which is the True Backbone of Society.  The Middle Class with the Union Jobs--Unions that you are out to destroy, because you are too busy siding with 'Big Business' who would cut the pay of their workers without stopping to think that the more working poor there are--the fewer people who can afford to buy the things that they make, which leads to fewer costumers which lead to less Business.

Are you paid in compliments instead of raises?

(MoneyWatch) Dear Evil HR Lady,My reviews are glowing, my progress non-existent. I feel like I am getting paid in compliments and not in salary and/or title. I have been with this company for two y...

Warning!!!! Talk is Cheap!! If the worker really is as valuable as the boss saids then where is the action of  the pay raise, lest the boss losses such a valuable employee?!?!?!?
After all, I remember my former boss always gave complements instead of a pay raise and when a pay raise was asked for, then it was said that the complement went to the person's head, since the one and only person who was truly the only and only VIP was the boss, herself--everyone else was disposable.
