Tara Kimkee Tan had already had her share of problems at her job before the incident in April. Tan's attorney, William Keith Watanabe, told Yahoo! Shine that Tan was never offered any kind of maternity leave during her four years working as hotel manager for The Standard Hotel. In the months leading up to the incident in April, Tan claims the hotel repeatedly told her "she did not fit the culture of the hotel," one of the trendiest nightlife destinations in New York City.

On the evening of April 30, 2011, Tan went into labor at work. "She gave birth around 2:30 a.m. on a Saturday morning," her attorney explained. "As you can imagine, that's the busiest time in the hotel, when its bars and clubs are in full swing. So she's pl...Read More »

Unfortunately, most Americans put off planning for their future, and therefore end up working well into their golden years. If you prefer the idea of relaxing with your grandchildren to spending your old age working a retail job to cover the bills, we can help.
The best time to work on your nest egg is now.
Know Your Retirement Needs
Spend some time calculating how much money you think you'll need coming in each month after retirement. Will you be remaining in your current residence? Should you set aside money to move into a skilled care facility? Do you have any type of illness that will worsen with age? If you're unsure how much money you'll need during your retirement years, it may be wise to speak with a financial planner. They can help you come up with a target amount, so that you'll know how much you should be saving each year.

How much does it pay to be a cat holder-downer? Find out here.
Even people with jobs are depressed about the nation's unemployment statistics. The outlook is dire enough to make everyone check job boards, even if it's just to witness the miserly market.
Craigslist tends to be a first stop for people, and not just because they're hoping to waste time sifting through ads for Ikea castoffs and 1980s McDonald's drink ware. People are using Craigslist in their search for part-time gigs as well as full-time employment, and for good reason: More than 1 million job listings are posted on Craigslist every month.
Now that doesn't mean there are a million amazing job openings. In fact, Craigslist is riddled with ads for surrogate mothers, egg donors, sperm donors and unpaid interns.
But those are so yesterday when it comes to weirdness.
We have sorted through the endless job listings to find the 10 strangest Craigslist job ads. What's more, these are real opportunities -- well, as real as these types of jobs can be.

Eres makes the most beautiful and flattering bikini in the world. It's a French institution, like the YSL Muse bag or K Jacques sandals. But even if Eres is renown for coaxing impressive cleavage and bums from even the most, ahem, intractable figures, here in France, we are, like everyone else, in the midst of a bleak economic crisis. Unemployment hovers around 10 percent, and there are rumors of a double-dip recession. Sound familiar?
Earn, baby, earn!

That's the secret of the credit crunch in France: What you don't have in the bank, you sim...Read More »
