FPR Blog 73: OverWorked, Under-Paid and Unappreciated. Story of an Employee.

People are working over 50 to 60 hours a week on average.

I’m not speaking of people who run their own business or love what they do. An equation with those two factors equals a labor of love. This means it’s not a job, it’s a lifestyle.

I’m speaking of those who do not enjoy what they do. Even those who might like their job don’t want to waste their life on it.

Working hard does not entail 60 plus hour work weeks. That’s just an abuse of one’s work ethics.

That person who never says “no” or “I can’t” or “won’t” is usually the one you see come early and stay late.

Those people that will come in on Sundays because they’ve been “asked” to by their bosses aren’t saying yes because they love the company. They are saying yes because they’re afraid to lose their jobs.
