Employers checking Facebook: an unwarranted intrusion or a check on unwarranted behavior?

"Creeping" is a word used by some to describe those who scour through Facebook and examine other people's profiles. This is  commonly known and accepted by many Facebook users. But what if your employer had the right to "creep" on our Facebook accounts? We seem to have no problems when our Facebook friends do this, and many leave their profiles open for the whole world to see. But what if your boss has legitimate reasons for accessing your profile? If an employee is performing poorly or is consistently absent or late, an employer may have an interest in getting to the bottom of the  misconduct. Access to an employee Facebook page may accomplish this.   

More Money or More Problems: New Jersey Voters Raise the Minimum Wage

Last November, New Jersey voters amended the State Constitution to raise the minimum wage from $7.25 to $8.25. Business owners opposed the proposal and claimed that it would lead to job losses and undermine their ability to move past the lingering effects of the recession. On the other side, those in favor said that academic studies show that raising the minimum wage has only minor effects on employment and provides stimulus to the economy by putting more money in the hands of people most likely to spend it.
