  1. An employer has no right to ask an employee to use their own personal cell phone nor computer for their business. They need to pay for it all. The solution is the business phone is for business only, the employee has their own personal phone. If the employer wants to contact the employee, business phone, otherwise, don't bother calling the personal phone The employer has no right to see any of the employees personal phone records and the employee cannot use the business phone for any personal calls. Also, the employer has no right to ask the employee to use their home network for business purposes if they won't pay for it. Simply put, keep business on business devices, personal on personal devices and pretty much keep the employer out of the personal lives of the employee. This should be defined by the law and by legal, business processes and documents. For too long, employers have been creeping into peoples personal lives with computers, phones, networks, etc. and consuming, invading personal time. Unless absolultely necessary, the employers is only paying for time at work in the business environment and employees should draw the line on their personal lives and time. Once at home, it is of no concern to do the employers business even if salaried. Take back your lives and enforce employee demands on employers which means you don't own the employees time on a computer, cell phone 24 hours per day, laws should be passed to restrict work hours, hourly and salary. Salary means pretty much 40 hours per week, if you want more, pay overtime to salaried workers. Don't use it as an excuse to say you own the salaried workers time no matter what, no matter when. It is about time to put our foots down on this issue and tell them no. Retail abuses this more than anyone, working 50-60 hours per week and getting a diminishing marginal return on salary. Salary is a name to abuse the employees time and an excuse to say take it or leave it in the name of having a quote professional job. If that is the case, then pay overtime once 40 hours is reached. Should be a law written in the employees favor in this case. For far too long have employers exploited professionals and college degreed individuals saying a job is a career and being professional and salaried means working 40-60 or 70 hours per week. Lets put up the wall and tell the employers that work stops when we leave their business and if they want more, pay more, not an open check book to consume the employees life and home time. Too much 24 hour per day worrying and working for them. Didn't exist before cell phones, beepers, email, LinkedIn, netmeeting, etc. and when physical buildings were more prevalent for business. It was go to work, do 8 to 9 hours, go home and forget about work. We need to do this again, set up an employee code stating that once at work, only work, once at home, only family, friends, and home, no mixing the two. Take back your lives and refuse the grind that executives are demanding to dump all the work of shrinking workforces on fewer and fewer people. We should not have to take this and it should be a rule just like OSHA, worker safety, worker rights.

  2. I'm shocked (sarcasm)...not the first time nor the last time. Gov. Pence is career politician with a desire to be President, should we expect anything less?

  3. Interesting observation from Liz about whether or not the organization still needs to exist. I'm not sure I would call downtown "done" yet, but it does seem to be peaking in terms of all types of development. I can envision the organization making a meaningful contribution to build on this momentum, but perhaps scaling back, being folded into another entity, or retiring itself after a few more years.

  4. I hope no visitors to the city that may stay at the Crowne Plaza Hotel get hurt. This info could be bad for their business.
