Giving Up Pay Raises and Other HR Articles

Got some good ones for your Thursday!
-From the AP/Yahoo! News: Lawmakers voted to give up pay raises in 2010. Not sure who the 24 people who voted against this are, but it's good to see politicians somewhat putting their money where their mouth is...
-Want to Twitter your way to a new job (or maybe it's Tweet your way to a new job...not sure)? Well has some suggestions on how to do so.
-The New York Times Freakonomics blog has an interesting suggestions on a way for potential employees to show employers what they can do before they get the job.
-Jim Stroud (you can follow him on Twitter @jimstroud) from The Recruiter's Lounge has an article talking about the intricacies of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
-News from this morning from Reuters that U.S. jobless claims are up and continued claims are at a record high. We just keep setting records we don't want to set.
-Lastly, an article from Workforce Management's blog, "The Business of Management", which talks about an issue we've covered on this blog: what to do when you overpay former workers.
