I was skeptical if the picture was real, but apparently it is as there are corroborating stories about it.

While it is unknown if the claims in the sign are true, it really is kind of immaterial.  Wet Seal has been sliding into bankruptcy for some time now and won't likely survive 2015.  Ultimately, these employees would have been let go eventually.

This store is in Seattle and it is likely unlawful for Wet Seal to withhold pay for unused vacation time.  No employer is required to pay for unused sick time typically unless it is grouped together with the vacation and holiday time as "Paid Time Off" days.  I kind of doubt that Wet Seal is purposefully breaking labor law in Washington state, but stranger things have happened.

I know I am far less distracted in my home office than in any open plan space. Hence, I only work away from home a day or so a week.
 
Perceptions of at home workers are shifting as 52 percent of people believe that those working from home are just as productive or more productive than those in the office.

There's a difference. 
 
They are different. The audience will put more value on: * Entertainment value ("stunning" slides, unusual props, presentation style) * Emotional connection to your business idea (not-for-profit ideas do well) * Emotional connection to the speaker (is she sympathetic, an underdog taking on big bad forces in the world) * Whether they actually remember you after a long morning of pitches (most of th...

I agree with Avinash on this completely. I don't see how it's going to be sorted any time soon. Especially since so much of the "sharing economy" banks on it. 
 
Four Charts That Defined the World in 2014.

1. Far more people got online. 2. The price of oil plummeted.  3. China’s economy both surpassed, and didn’t surpass, the U.S. economy.  4. The rich keep getting richer; the poor, poorer.

Which one do you think has the biggest long term implications?  I think it is #4. I worry a lot about this fundamental shift in power. It is not just purchasing power, it that blue line carries with it political power, agenda setting power, and so much more. If we don't fix it, there can be major upheaval.
