Meeting Notes

Meeting Notes is a weekly feature. Here we will dish on tidbits, news, and important things we thinking Working Girls should know. So scroll down to hear what we think you should glean from this work week.
  • If you happen to have $14,000 lying around this note is for you! After seventeen bids, the a week-long "experience" at the Vogue offices is up for auction with the money going to charity (which charity I have no idea and I'm too lazy to Google it). Only two more days to bid so get on it Working Girls! [NY Mag]
  • Danish warehouse workers and drivers at Danish brewery Carlsberg went on strike last week so they could protest a company decision to limit beer drinking while at work to only lunch breaks. And yes, I wrote drivers before. Mull that one over. [Yahoo News]
  • A recent study in England revealed that women with blonde hair earn 7% more than women with other hair colors. To dig the knife even deeper, apparently the study also revealed that blondes tend to marry wealthier men. Awesome. [Telegraph UK]
  • Employees who saw their 401(k)'s cut and other perks fall by the wayside during the recession shouldn't expect them to come back any time soon. A survey conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management found that fringe benefits (stock options, family leave, etc.) have decreased steadily since 2005 and have shown little sign of coming back. [Wall Street Journal]

Can't believe I've recently dyed my hair dark brown. Hope it doesn't apply to Scotland :)
