Axe Action

6 segments
Upon getting fired, your first reaction may be this: get mad, get even, get depressed. But it should be: get it in writing, get your files off your computer, get back to work asap. In the end, the decisions immediately after getting the axe can make all the difference between a new career and long-term unemployment. Also, how do you put a dollar value on a human life, and why is that number changing?

July is Photo Month! Our new challenge is to submit your pictures on the theme of "STRESS." What makes you stressed out? What makes you relax? Do you thrive on stress? Go out and take pictures that capture the stress (or lack thereof) in your life! Submit your shots to our Brian Lehrer Show Flickr Page now (more detailed instructions here) and we'll discuss the results on the air next week!
