Quote from: Bisto on February 09, 2018, 05:25:11 amOoh, I know this one,....its the ever higher demands for greater productivity made by Directors and bean counters at the behest of shareholders, fund managers, stakeholders etc. looking to top up their no doubt already corpulent offshore retirement funds on the backs of already demoralized, unsupported and undervalued staff, increasingly dependent on working anything up to another 20-30 hours per week of underpaid overtime in order to make ends meet whilst suffering the constant low level straffing of brand dimishment, corporate takeover, government intransigence and interference, assest stripping, decapitalizing, financial restructuring, managerial reorganizing, Rationalizations, management thuggery and not forgetting the insistance, as if your very life depended on it, on staff reading every tedious email, and finding your self trying not to gibber hysterically/vomit/self combust at every farcical, smug, self congratulatory company success sharing story or state of the company address....and perhaps most importantly of all; the need to genuflect and be ever so thankfull and humble whilst completing the interminable and utterly pointless, time wasting, arse covering, box ticking lists, exercises and processes that are checked, collected, collated and offered up as a sacrifice to the god of productivity.....not forgetting the need to keep a constant self vigilence and an eye in the back of your head in case a once loyal colleague fecks you over and grasses you up for making a minor clerical error or taking a few minutes too long on your 20 minute lunch break. Meanwhile dispicable, misshapen, Dickensian caricutures passing for Local Union Reps sell out the workers in a never ending series of hidden, grubby backroom deals while the threat of imminent mass redundancies hangs heavy in the air like a corpses fart.

Good news that the economy is showing signs of recovery. Might help with huge levels of debt fuelled by 'free money' too. And, of course, we know the main driver for low wage growth.
