In charge: Despite the corporate restructurings that have turned many job paths upside down, workers are generally pretty optimistic about their ability to control their own careers. That's the finding of a survey conducted for the Lutheran Brotherhood, a financial services organization.

The survey, which queried 1,000 adults, found 69 percent said they have total or a lot of control over their careers. The respondents earning at least $50,000 a year are the most likely to believe they have a lot of control over their careers.

More hotel beds: There'll be a big surge in the hotel business this year, with 127,500 rooms being added, but the supply

increase doesn't mean rates will fall, reports Coopers & Lybrand. Demand for hotel rooms is expected to rise 2.3 percent this year and 2.2 percent in 1998, Coopers & Lybrand said. The average daily room price of $74.29 this year is expected to rise to $78.47 next year and to $82.59 in 1999.
