I believe it was Drew Carey who famously said, "You don't like your job? There's a group for that. It's called EVERYBODY, and we meet at the bar at 5:00."

Imagine being a low level manager in such a company. Every time the Worker Happiness Metric drops below 98%
you'll need to produce an Action Plan to address the issue.

Big Boss:  HR, can we fire anybody who hits the blue button?
HR: Of course we can - Right to work state.

HR: Brilliant plan Big Boss, once we fire all those unhappy workers, we'll have a 100% happy work force. They write you up in the management books!

Mollari: I'm glad I'm not working anymore. I've been incandescent with blind and barbaric fury at work more than a couple of times ( I have a low tolerance for stupidity) though you wouldn't know it from my facial expression.  Not that it would mattrer anyway, I'm not foolish enough to hit the "I'm sad" button unless I have a offer in hand from another employer.

People are not going to self report honestly lest management see them as a crank.


I use the word "fark" like a comma at work.

Time to retire.

foo monkey: If I hit the sad button enough to get carpal tunnel syndrome, will I get workman's comp?


Nah.

Sad button won't do anything.
Happy button will increment once an hour no matter what you do.

Manager bonuses will be based on the happiness of their work group.
