Hotwire claims to give you a great deal on hotels. But that claim comes with a lot of baggage. With some hotel reservations, Hotwire claims you can cancel with no penalty if you do so in time. However canceling is not as easy as they make it sound.

A call centre worker in Brigend, UK had his pay docked because of toilet breaks at a company where drinking lots of water is encouraged. UK's Trade Union Congress says the law should clearly forbid pay deductions for toilet breaks.

Over 100 thousand have asked Walmart to label GMO corn in the past, and it still won't commit. Now that it's on the market and we know it's classified as a pesticide, there's no more waiting. Either Walmart rejects the corn, labels it or we don't buy any

The thought of shackling a woman during labor or delivery is so horrific, one would expect only the most uncivilized places to allow it. But currently those places include most of the US states. States that do have laws banning it often don't enforce them
