Perks and benefits go a long way to keep employees from leaving and working hard.After all, few if any businesses grow when managers are the kind of bosses that no one works for -- for very long.

This is also why minimum wage jobs need to be also a living wage. After  all, the less a person makes per hour the more hours they need to work for such luxuries as food  clothing and shelter, which also means no sick days off- no matter how sick a person is.

And then sometimes, we all just got to make the most out of a bad situation. I don't know about anyone else; but I confess that the only reason that I work is because of all the bills that I have to pay.

Interesting, maybe even I could become an Assistant Manager or Manager, even though I am not naturally a leader. I am a far better follower than leader, but then again, I am still learning to be me. I may be 50+ years old, but God is not done with me, yet--I am still a work in-progress.

Copenhagen, Denmark (CNN) -- Be prepared, the next big thing facing a green makeover might just be your closet.
Campaigning for sexy, sustainable fashionThe glitzy world of fashion and design doesn't typically conjure up images of sustainability and social consciousness, but if its up to Eva Kruse, CEO of the Danish Fashion Institute and Chairman of the Nordic Fashion Association, that's all going to change.
