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…
Imagine you just started at a new job. You work remotely and have never met your boss in person. Nonetheless, on your first day of work, she asks you questions generally reserved for close friends: What was your family like growing up? Do you smoke weed? Do drugs? Enjoy casual sex? Have you ever had a threesome? Have…
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!
Rihanna is the most important millennial of our time. The Rihanna Rihport is where we chronicle the magnitude of her lived existence.
Most women experience unwanted attention from an early age—the second you hit puberty, a whole new world of stares, remarks, groping, or worse descends upon you. But there’s a particularly uncomfortable strain of attention that aligns specifically with entering the working world, and it can constitute its own brand of…
Welcome to cold and flu season, in which our bodies are attacked by germs and our emotions by guilt-mongering bosses and coworkers.
This evening I’m giving a talk to my daughter’s Girl Scouts troop about careers in technology. I’m going to tell them that women have done amazing things in tech. I’m going to tell them that they too can do anything they set their minds to in this arena. But I will be lying to them.
