So what happens if we (the global we) just don't do it?
WHat happens when people leave the office, turn off the connectivity and just say not available after whatever-o-clock.
Would they really get fired?


Would they get fired? In a word, yes!
Of course, that all depends on where you work and for who.
We live right across the river from Wall Street. I know a guy who got laid off two years ago and will most likely never work in his field again because that field no longer exists. He is still young. Someone else who used to do what he did is now selling ice cream. He was able to buy a franchise. Makes a fraction of what he used to make but does this so he can survive.
It's terrifying!
