According to the infographic design, those who have worked remotely report longer work weeks, with 26 percent working 50 hours or more compared to only 10 percent of those who haven’t worked remotely. Despite that, 75 percent of remote workers say the ability to get their jobs done without coming in to the office has improved their lives.

Infographic Design: B+

The layout of the design works well the only issue I have is that for this being a Christmas infographic, the design does not reflect this. The images are Christmas images, but the colors black, blue and pink, are not at all Christmas colors.

Infographic Information: B

The information provides and interesting look into how a few managers feel about the holiday at work.

Business Growth in the UK

Business Growth in the UK

Small businesses are critical to the UK economy. Did you know that there are 4.9 million UK businesses that account for a total turnover of £3.3 billion? With 45% of SMEs planning to grow in the next 12 months, many business owners are ready, willing and able to grow but lack the funds to be able to do so. Many businesses have failed to acquire capital through traditional avenues and are turning to alternative finance options such as the small business loans from Boost Capital. This Infographic outlines the importance of business growth to Great Britain and uncovers accessible business financing options to help SMEs grow in the UK.

The Federal Minimum Wage: What’s Next?

The Federal Minimum Wage: What’s Next?

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), workers in the United States must be paid at least a minimum wage — currently set at $7.25 an hour. While states and municipalities have the power to establish higher wages — for example, Washington is $9.32 and San Francisco is $10.74 — the federal minimum wage creates a base level for most employees. The only exceptions to the rule are certain tipped employees, full-time students, youth workers and disabled workers.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 1.6 million hourly workers earned the federal minimum wage in 2012, with nearly 2 million more earning less than the minimum because they fell under one of the above exemptions. More than half of minimum wage employees work in the leisure and hospitality industry, followed by retail, education and health services.

How did we get to today’s rate of $7.25 an hour?Let’s take a closer look at the history of the minimum wage.

Infographic Review

Infographic Design: B+

If there is one thing that I love about an infographic, it is when they have good organization. That means that the information is laid out in an easy to read and follow design. This infographic uses a timeline design to help guide the reader through all of the information. The years are clearly labeled and designed to standout from the rest of the text. My only negative is that the top part is a little dull and should be more appealing to the eye to attract readers.

Infographic Information: B+

The information is interesting and helps shows how the federal minimum wage has changed over the years. I like the historical facts about the minimum wage. My pet peeve about infographics is that they should provide something valuable to the reader. This infographic shares facts but provides nothing for the reader to take away from the infographic.
