Survey: Bosses impactworkers' happiness

NEW YORK -- Bosses have more control over employee happiness than productivity -- at least according to their staff, a recent survey found.

While 56 percent of American workers said that their supervisors have a direct impact on their work-life happiness, less than half believe their bosses influence productivity.

Baby boomers were more likely to report that bosses had a strong impact on their daily lives than their Generation Y counterparts, and men were more likely than females to say that bosses directly affect their work performance, said Addeco North America, a work-force solutions company.

YOUNGSTOWN -- Workers in the automotive industry in Ohio and four other states who have been laid off are eligible for a new federal training program. Career Advancement Accounts can be used for education and skill training. Workers are eligible to receive 3,000 a year for two years.

Ohio, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota and Missouri will receive 1.5 million in grants from the U.S. Department of Labor, but they have to come up with matching funds. More information is available at www.doleta.gov.
