Debeo Summa Credo: Paying people to do nothing or to do something that is worth less than you are paying them is detrimental to the economy.
Carn: Holy fark! They let you sit there and surf all day? You still get paid? Do they not let you pee or something? I'm not seeing the downside here.
mediablitz: Egoy3k: Honestly it seems like all you labor theorists haven't actually worked in a real job and have no understanding of the fact that as unfortunate as it is sometimes people get laid off. Life happensMore often than not, the layoff has ZERO to do with how well the person was doing their job. Saying "hey, shiat happens!" shows the American mentality towards workers as sub-human. Easily tossed aside.But boy oh boy, leave a job with no notice, and what a horrible person you are, leaving the company stuck like that!It's amazing how well corporate America has brainwashed so many. And you hear the "older" generation biatching about how Gen X'ers don't have the "work ethic" anymore. That's because they have seen the crap stain that is "corporate honesty", and don't fall for the "be loyal to your company" bullshiat.
Silly_Sot: Anything else is childish naivete.

The Irresponsible Captain: So, write a book, read, and complain on Fark all day?What's the downside?
bdub77: "I won't leave," Mr. Tani said. "Companies aren't supposed to act this way. It's inhumane."The Holocaust is inhumane. North Korean prison camps are inhumane. You are simply irrelevant and don't wish to go out and find a new job. And that's cool, but not inhumane.
wildcardjack: Dude, you made magnetic tapes. Either you didn't read the writing on the wall or you ignored it, but about your mid 30's you should have seen the optical disk was going to completely chase you out of your job.
Nhojwolfe: Geesh a company being held accountable for the employees that helped them get where they are.We must get rid of this immediatly.
NutWrench: Carn: Holy fark! They let you sit there and surf all day? You still get paid? Do they not let you pee or something? I'm not seeing the downside here.I'm guessing it's a cultural thing where you're supposed to be deeply ashamed that you're not working your fingers to the bone every second of the day to contribute to the greater glory of the company or something.I wish they'd try that here in the U.S.
