Sklover’s Thought for the Work Week

Sklover Working Wisdom

This quote was provided by SkloverWorkingWisdom Member Dan of Detroit, Michigan. “Trust one who has tried.”. Virgil. At work, and especially during difficult times at work, pay close attention to the views of those who have “tried” and, thus, speak with the “voice of experience,” whether they have won or lost. On the flipside, don’t give much credence to the views of those who have never tried. By their never having tried they say, in effect, “Even I don’t have faith in my own words.”.

You Can Still Be Fired for Being LGBTQ in Some States, but Maybe the Supreme Court Will Fix That

Evil HR Lady

Michigan and Pennsylvania have similar protections, but they come through court rules or executive decree rather than legislative action. Discrimination against people for their sexual orientation is wrong, right? We should hire, promote, and pay people based on what they contribute to the business not on who they date (or don’t date). But, federal law isn’t clear and right now, LGBTQ people only have clear protections in place in some states.

Experiencing the excitement of something new is nice, but once we've failed in selecting anything - cars, food, etc - we tend to go with what we know.
