  • We have long known that men have out-earned women for decades, but did you know that there are actually some fields in which women out-earn men? Check out this infographic to find out more. [PayScale]
  • Telecommuting is being strongly encouraged for London locals as the Olympics kick off. Could this make remote working mainstream? [PayScale]
  • The phrase "working like a dog" could take a literal turn if more businesses allow man's best friend to become a regular office visitor. [PayScale]
  • If this social media ad agency gets its way, the workweek will be moved to a 24-hour cycle. [PayScale]
  • Most of us know (or maybe some of us are) people who simply cannot put down their BlackBerry, so it's no surprise there are new warnings about technology addiction. [PayScale]
  • The next time you feel like complaining about your job, you might want to think of workers in Argentina. One of its cities is so underfunded that the mayor is actually holding raffles to determine when employees get paid. [PayScale]
