Tribune Columnist Rex Huppke: "I Just Work Here"

Meet Chicago Tribune writer Rex Huppke who pens a workplace column called “I Just Work Here.” It’s a humorous weekly foray into the world of work, examining everything from email etiquette and bad bosses to the more significant workplace issues of the day. After the Oak Park resident began writing the column, Huppke jokingly declared himself “America’s Most-Beloved Workplace Advice Columnist.” No one ever questioned that, so he has humbly embraced the title.
