When you're a salaried professional, no, I don't think occasional "loafing" is stealing. In theory, a salaried employee is NOT paid by the amount of time he/she spends at the office. They are paid to do a certain job. And if they get it done and do it well -- in theory -- then it shouldn't matter whether they spend 30 or 60 hours at work in a week.In theory again, if I cyberslacked 30 hours a week but was 5 times more productive than other employees in my team, then in a 40-hour week I get 25% more work done as they would even if they worked hard for 40 hours. Seems to me that makes me worth at least as much -- and arguably 25% more -- than the others. [Note: this does not describe my personal situation.]Of course, in *reality*, even if you did more work in 30 hours than everyone else did in 60, you'd still be required to work at least 40 if not 60, picking up their slack. And *hopefully* your salary will reflect that.#29
