Seven out of 10 workers have "checked out" at work or are "actively disengaged," from LA times, quoting a Gallop Poll
I love that term, “actively disengaged.” Not only do they hate their job, they are actively hostile towards it.
Well duh. Anyone who's been in the working isn't surprised. People are treated like crap, used and abused by employers. No wonder so many are just putting in their time. You know where else people are doing time? Prison.
Give people a living wage, responsibility, control over their environment, rewards for doing well, reasonable work hours and maybe they'll be a bit more engaged.
The only logical response to companies that treat their employees like disposable commodities is hostility. After all, those companies are hostile to the workers.
