Long time no see! We were thinking about you while on vacation and have been looking forward to this day a great deal. Welcome back!

The United States and Japan pride themselves on being egalitarian societies in which “all men (and women) are created equal.” But things in the workplace don't always feel so balanced. Sometimes experience, rank, and age all work together to create a sort of corporate class system that can only be ignored at the risk of one's career.

Now the last thing we want is for any of our readers to risk their careers. So this week we're offering you a “class on class” that we think you'll find very informative!
