And this will only increase with the coming generations, who are more inclined to take a job for less money if it offers better quality of life.

I know I would. I watched my dad bust his ass at a job he hates for 30+ years. I won't. Less dough for a more opportunities to live life? I'll take it in a heartbeat.

I'll say this: I'm already taking a job around 30% lower in salary than what I could get elsewhere but I tend to work around a 30 hour work week for a boss who is awesome in a relaxed company with a great corporate culture. Yes, I could make more money somewhere else but is it really worth the bullshiat? Is it really worth being pissed off, hating to go into work, not seeing my daughter in the evenings, being stressed out all the time?

Fark that! If I get 3 weeks, I will be sure to take it by the end of the year. If I had no defined limit, I will probably never use it because I am not worried about tracking it. How many things do you never get around to doing because you could do it at any time? Sometimes it is better to have restrictions.

jjwars1: whither_apophis: wildcardjack: Take as many days off as you want, whenever you want to take them, as long as you get your work done.

It's an excellent employee retention policy. Go read 4-hour Workweek and learn more about the ideas of separating work from the distractions of office. If you have work that can be done on a laptop from anywhere in the world you don't need an office.

I wouldn't be surprised if the future of most white collar work is to have a small office with a few meeting rooms and everyone works from home. An office is no longer a specialized space.

Won't happen until we get rid of useless managers; they have to manage somebody.

The managers would work from home too...


Maybe we hook up some wi-fi hot-spots on the B Ark?

/"Of course you'll be able to telecommute from on board sir, please keep moving up the ramp, that's a good assistant manager."
