The Work Ethic

Recommended Posts

The Work Ethic

Interesting Article about the relentless pressure put on people to hold on to their jobs, and how much power big corporate outfits have, and the working for free in your part time to climb up the career ladder, for limited rewards,

Students loaded with debts to make them good little debt ridden compliant employees,

Employers want unemployment so they have a pool of frightned employees who will do anything to hold on their jobs.

Core workers with long term secure jobs, plus other non core workers or contractors who can be fired at will.

There are few things more overrated than the work ethic. it's an virtue invented by those who wish to control. Arbeit macht frei.

As I've said time and time again. Corporations are the ultimate irony. Corporations are minature totalitarian states ironic as they are the backbones of most free societies.

Heh that time I worked for HSBC CCTV cameras everywhere in your work tables all over the ceiling in domes and they had these RFID chips which tracked you through the entire building drove everybody nuts!

This is also something I bang on and on about. Having worked for blue chip multinational engineering firm, it is scary - the goals/visions, the logos everywhere, the rules, the company 'values' and 'behaviours' the uniforms, the constant monitoring and evaluation......it's bizarre that many people don't seem to see the connection. We live in a 'free' society, yet for most, the majority of their life is as regulated as a prison.

I should take notes if I should ever decide to go to North Korea, its only $999 for a 6 day tour of NK and you can train or fly in via Beijing.

DUE TO BUDGET CUTS

THIS IS YOUR NEW OFFICE[/color]

EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER 1, 2010

NEW OFFICE POLICY

Dress Code:

1) You are advised to come to work dressed according to your salary.

2) If we see you wearing Prada shoes and carrying a Gucci bag, we will assume you are doing well financially and therefore do not need a raise.

3) If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money better, so that you may buy nicer clothes, and therefore you do not need a raise.

4) If you dress just right, you are right where you need to be and therefore you do not need a raise.

Sick Days:

We will no longer accept a doctor's statement as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.

Personal Days:

Each employee will receive 104 personal days a year. They are called Saturdays & Sundays.

Bereavement Leave:

This is no excuse for missing work. There is nothing you can do for dead friends, relatives or co-workers. Every effort should be made to have non-employees attend the funeral arrangements in your place. In rare cases where employee involvement is necessary, the funeral should be

scheduled in the late afternoon. We will be glad to allow you to work through your lunch hour and subsequently leave one hour early.

Bathroom Breaks:

Entirely too much time is being spent in the toilet. There is now a strict three-minute time limit in the stalls. At the end of three minutes, an alarm will sound, the toilet paper roll will retract, the stall door will open, and a picture will be taken. After your second offense, your picture will be posted on the company bulletin board under the 'Chronic Offenders' category. Anyone caught smiling in the picture will be sectioned under the company's mental health policy.

Lunch Break:

* Skinny people get 30 minutes for lunch, as they need to eat more, so that they can look healthy.

* Normal size people get 15 minutes for lunch to get a balanced meal to maintain their average figure.

* Chubby people get 5 minutes for lunch, because that's all the time needed to drink a Slim-Fast.

Thank you for your loyalty to our company. We are here to provide a positive employment experience. Therefore, all questions, comments, concerns, complaints, frustrations, irritations, aggravations, insinuations, allegations, accusations, contemplations, consternation and input should be directed elsewhere.

The Management

Pass this on to all who are employed

Yeah its odd that no one makes the connection with workplace - just how controlled and lacking in any autonomy they are. I blame it on the TV, films and are culture which tells us on one level everything is democratic, and we are all free to do anything we want, and get any job we want, and we will all get promoted to the top if we just work hard - but on another level reality confronts us everyday where every move you make is monitored, jobs are decided who gets them internally before being advertised, little in the way of active management or mentoring, backstabbers all around us, and constant distrust between people at work.

Never had great work work ethic - except when treated as competition with other people.

never understood people with fairly dull jobs, that spend endless hours trying to outwork their everyone else, and then claim to love it - I mean does it all just boil down to being over competitive?

Yeah, but you have to go with the flow, play them at their own game, tow the line....walk the walk and talk the talk...you know,they know and you know that they know........luckily the people you meet, the places you go, the laughs you have make up for it.....nothing lasts for life, make the most of it, and give as good as you get...in all large corporations all employees are in the same boat swimming the same circles ;)

"walk the walk and talk the talk"

That's when the 'corporate speak' takes over your life, sucks you into their Manic Matrix of Corporate Crud (bullshite, self reinforcing, internal "MILESTONE" manias) - makes you no better than 'them'!

Yes & no - it's highly developed brainwashing and peer (pressure) conformity (designed to cause you loads of 'stress' which you take back home - ultimately breaks down/splits families)

Human 'RESOURCE'

you are 'reduced' - like something 'they' dig out of a mountain!

Who did you work for?.....must make a note for future reference. :P

No, there must be companies that make it harder for people to work there....but I would go on to say there is no gain in making employees unhappy, most companies I would say like to keep their people in check complaint towing the party line and happy....it is not in their interests or benefit to cause unnecessary grief and upset unless they have ulterior motives.

Why do you think the Blitish/European inherent 'gene' pool of brilliant inventors has more or less disappeared over the decades - as our corporates went more GLOBAL and enforced USA - uni-invented Corporate Bullslight Brainwashing!

looks like more are starting to see they are controlled

The more the Global giants crack down thru conformity and fear

- the more INNovation is taken away from them by GOD - heh heh!

You can see the SATANIC STATE they are getting themselves into (of BIBLICAL Proportions!)

eg Parasitic (too big to fail) Lying, Cheating, One-way-fixing (to benefit themselves) in the Global City Financial Industries - the only way they are 'innovating'!
