Government Fibs, No Need For H-1Bs and Recession Proof Jobs

[Original air date: 05.28.08] Jim is sleepy, but Karen is hyper as she rants about Government Fibs on the Labor Market. Guess where all the Recruiter jobs are? (At least those that are not in the USA) As much as you possibly can, spread the love to China (via the Red Cross). Why is Microsoft (and other big name brands) lobbying for more H-1Bs when there are so many Americans out of work? (What a debate that is.) | Find more great content at JimStroud.com

Government Fibs, No Need For H-1Bs and Recession Proof Jobs

Do we need a law to mandate work-life balance?

Do we need a law to mandate work-life balance? In this episode, I discuss the “Right to Disconnect” bill being debated in New York City. Essentially, it says workers should not be required to answer emails or respond to work-related texts after official business hours. I also share insights from similar laws and business processes from around the world. Is this the future of work for the United States? If so, how will reducing work hours affect the bottom line? Tune in for a very interesting episode!

TRL: Layoffs, Salaries and Sex in Second Life

In this "Retro Lounge" episode: Karen is all doom and gloom about the economy, while Jim looks for the silver lining for Recruiters suffering from the econoclypse (get it? like the apocolypse?); by referring them to different industries to recruit for. Or at least Jim tries to, Karen won’t let him speak. Plus, Jim and Karen discuss a rather bizarre, sad, but true story of sex in Second Life. It seems that even in a recession, there is at least one industry that is still doing well. (Guess which one it is.

If automation can eliminate certain tasks for a certain worker by X percent then, should that worker have his compensation reduced accordingly? I debate the issue in this episode. Resources related to this podcast can be found on JimStroud.com.

The Future of Food Service

The food automation trend of robots and automation taking your orders, creating your food and serving it in some futuristic fashion, promised a win-win scenario for customers and restaurant owners alike. So, what has been the ROI? I explore the realities and determine that robots and automation can boost productivity at restaurants but cost a company profits if not enough people are involved.

How many ways can you sue a recruiter?

I am substituting my regularly scheduled episode of "The Jim Stroud Podcast" for this special reunion episode. A little over a decade ago, I co-hosted "The Recruiters Lounge Podcast" with my pal - Karen Mattonen. It was very successful podcast at the time and in celebration of it, I have recently launched "The Retro Lounge" podcast which republishes the original episodes. Tune in and hear Karen and I discuss ethics in recruiting and what recruiters can learn from the real estate industry.
