And there was this in TheOnion ( http://www.theonion.com/ ) today:

"Woman With Shitty Job Her Own Boss

DEXTER, MI—Cynthia Rimler, self-employed for the past three months as a sales representative for RoyalAire Cosmetics, sets her own hours and answers to no one regarding her shitty job. "Nobody tells me what neighborhood to canvass or when," boasted Rimler, who earned $400 last month selling makeup door-to-door. "And if I decide I want a day off, hey, I'm the boss." Rimler added that she wouldn't be selling RoyalAire Cosmetics if the products weren't good enough for her own face.

This person deserves to be fired and beaten senseless. Well, he is already senseless, so maybe he should just be beaten.

People like this are absolute trash, and to some extent I blame the company.

But no decent person would ever do the sort of things he says.

We have a responsibility to our employers to give them value for their pay.

We have a responsibility to our employers to give them value for their pay.

There are two responsibilities in the employer-employee relationship:

(1) It is the employer's responsibility to milk as much work from the employee, for as little pay, as possible.

(2) It is the employee's responsibility to do as little as possible, for the highest possible pay.

The symmetry is so beautiful that it brings a tear to my eye.

Outstanding observation!

I'd add one corrallary to 1) and 2) above.

Employees should engage in no activity that goes unrewarded. Working for free (e.g., uncompensated overtime) is rarely productive.
