The Landscape
Editorial: Economic recovery hasn't brought robust wage growth
The decreasing unemployment rate is a positive sign for the economy, but wage growth is still weak, writes the editorial board of the Star Tribune of Minneapolis/St.Paul. "Hourly wages were up 9 cents in November to $24.66, but that's not nearly enough to make up for three decades of stagnation and barely enough to keep up with higher prices on many consumer items," the board writes.

Balancing Yourself
Saying "no" helps reduce stress and exhaustion
Being overworked is a common cause of workplace stress, exhaustion and even depression, writes Charu Sabnavis, noting "if you can't give your 100% to an assignment, it is better to refuse." When saying "no" to a project, remember that it is nothing personal and "you are rejecting the request, not the person," Sabnavis writes. LiveMint.com/The Wall Street Journal (India) (12/14)
