It is amazing to see how the economy has not only affected the employment rates but also the management/leadership's attitudes towards their employees. The sad trends highlighted in this article have become common in today's organizations for the past 5 years.

I know there are some who are afraid of the slippery slope - and I understand that. But if you think about it, we don't let 12 yo kids drive cars, we don't let 18 yo kids drink, and we don't allow blind people to drive. There are plenty of other good arguments for limiting certain activities to certain groups of people. Quite possibly, there are certain people who shouldn't be allowed to have super dangerous weapons.

This is so very true. There is a fast food taco chain restaurant in North Platte, Nebraska. The food is great and it sparks warm feeling in my Nebraska bred wife. But the bathroom is so filthy I can't bring myself to ever go there again. In fact, the tables are sticky, the floor is gross, and just about everything gives off an aura of filth. Too bad - the food is good.
