Meeting Notes

Meeting Notes is a weekly feature. Here we will dish on tidbits, news, and important things we think you Working Girls should know. So scroll down to hear what we think you should glean from this work week. 
  • This past week Starbucks introduced the new "mini Starbucks" card to give all us caffeine obsessed, coffee addicts a more convenient way to buy coffee. This card can easily be put on your keychain or placed on a belt (Starbucks's suggestion not mine - a belt? Really Starbucks?). 

  • A slew of ex employees of the (in my opinion) overpriced chain boutique Scoop are in the process of filing a suit against the company for not paying them over-time. These employees are claiming that the store would promote employees to manager and assistant manager positions even though they didn't perform managerial duties. According to NY Mag, this was done in order to pay them weekly wages instead of hourly wages thereby paying them less. 
  • One of our fave WG's (and reality TV B-lister) Rachel Zoe is going to be expanding her empire by launching a new daily newsletter entitled "The Zoe Report". She claims it's going to be "bananas". No joke, it really says that on her site.

  • I wish they had had CEO Camp when I was a kid! This video report from the Wall Street Journal gives us a good look at what teenage Girl Scouts are learning from this camp program offered to them where they get mentored by female CEO's who assist them in figuring out what they would like to do when they grow up.

I'm interested in that Zoe report!

Esp if she's mentioning bananas...

(Hey.. any reason why you comment moderate AND do word verification? :D could you please do one or the other?)

I'm surprised people are still going to Starbucks in this economy...
And um, I'd like to go to that CEO camp NOW. Lol.

Um, this may be addressed on the Starbucks website, but how are you supposed to use this in the drive thru if its on your keys?
