As Uber undergoes an attempt to investigate the culture of sexual harassment within its company in the wake of an HR nightmare of a blog post written by a former employee, you’d think that they’d also consider the women that drive for them.
I bought the FitDesk 2.0 on a whim a couple of years ago, and was surprised both by how viable it was to work at, and how compact it gets when folded up. It fits easily into a closet, or opens up for use while working, gaming, or marathoning Netflix, and is particularly nice out on the balcony.
The past couple years have been something of a season of ironic disappointment for customers of modern, ostensibly feminist clothing companies, from Nasty Gal’s infamously nasty corporate culture to new allegations of sexual harassment against the CEO of period underwear maker Thinx. Now, current and former employees…
What’s that? It’s 9pm on a Sunday night and your boss just sent you an email, subject line “URGENT”?
Above is a tweet from the NYPD’s 6th Precinct that features Sgt. Balunas escorting Rihanna to a VMAs afterparty at Up & Down late Sunday night.
When Rihanna first dropped the song “Work,” you probably saw approximately one thousand tweets by people who thought they were being clever talking about how she wasn’t saying words. The lyrics were apparently so difficult to understand, as a matter of fact, that there was an entire genre of YouTubers, almost…
The American Time Use Survey (or ATUS) is a yearly report conducted by the U.S. Department of Labor that examines “the average amount of time per day in 2015 that individuals worked, did household activities, and engaged in leisure and sports activities.” The results for 2015 were released this week, and—based on the…
Recently, in response to Obama’s recently announced executive action on overtime, we asked readers working in creative industries affected to write in and tell us a little bit about how they stand to benefit (or not). We got a lot of submissions.
What would you think if a coworker or employee showed up to work in loose ripped jeans, scuzzy sneakers, the same shirt she wore yesterday, frizzy hair, dirty unpolished nails, and a band-aid hanging off her arm from a recent tetanus shot? Would you judge me? Should I buy new clothes? Probably?
I feel for Meghann Foye, author of the new book Meternity, about a woman who fakes a pregnancy so she can have take a break from work. When she talked to the New York Post about her book last week, I don’t think she was expecting to wade quite so dramatically into the highly opinionated no-chill zone that is the…
The only things I have done tonight are masturbate and scroll through Cardi B’s Instagram until my wrist hurt. I am wearing a promotional Sopranos T-shirt that reads, “I WANNA MADE MAN” [sic], but what I really want is to have a drink.
A new study finds that people love to hear about workplace diversity—just as long as it’s not coming from minorities or women. In fact, if you’re not a white male, you’re more likely to be punished for speaking up.
Earlier this month, the maybe evil online retailer Amazon found itself under pressure to release details of gender and pay within the company. Amazon’s recently released survey shows that the company pays women and men in the United States virtually the same.
The Brit Awards, which are approximately three thousand times more interesting to watch than the Grammys even despite the fact that they are as white as the Oscars, hosted Rihanna’s first live performance of her new material—“Consideration,” with SZA, and “Work”—and she brought out surprise guest Drake for the…
After teasing us with promises of dancehall nights, wildly flattering bobs and wining for days, Rihanna has released the video for “Work.”
Ladies, it’s time to lean the fuck in for some important business news. According to a new study Peterson Institute for International Economics and EY (formerly as Ernst & Young), corporations with women in leadership roles have a higher profit margin.
A newscaster for PressTV, Iran’s state-run, English-language TV station, has fled the country after revealing she was sexually harassed at work for years. Two of Sheena Shirani’s supervisors have been suspended after she shared an audio recording and dozens of messages on Facebook from one of them demanding sex from…
Anti is not our adult Santa, as we’ve come to fear; Anti may, in fact, be real, and at the very least “Work,” featuring Drake, is incredibly real, insofar that downloading something off Tidal for $1.29 after three attempts to pay is “real.” Never mind that, though: here’s a new freakin’ Rihanna song!
