Work with Marty Nemko, 1/11/18: Are neckties & high-heeled shoes ripe for the workplace trash?

On the Jan 11, 2018 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, Drs. Barbara and Marty Nemko debate whether those instruments of torture-- neckties and high-heeled shoes--belong in the dustbin of obsolete workplace attire

In the program's second segment, we debate how to handle an angry coworker and, if we have time, what a burned-out teacher should do?

As usual, we also invite listeners to call in for a Workover. Whatever career conundrum is besetting you or someone you care about, we can usually help.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Thursday from 7 to 8 PM on KALW 91.7  FM in San Francisco and worldwide on KALW.org.

The programs are archived on iTunes and in perpetuity on this webpage.
