Although job cuts have grown slightly each month since hitting a low in April, CEO John Challenger doesn't think the increase is a sign that the economy is worsening. More

AOL Jobs    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Whenever I ride my road bike, I see all kinds of people getting exercise. I often try to guess what their goals are. Obviously, many are focused on weight loss.
