November 2012 Archives

In case you missed it, last Sunday's Dilbert comic skewered various of aspects of modern work:

Note the references to paper towels having a purpose (how many workers feel their work lacks purpose?), gross stuff getting to leave (how many workers feel trapped in their jobs?), and the juxtaposition of the organization thinking it values workers and treats them with dignity and respect while actually ignoring their views when it doesn't suit the organization's purpose. Great stuff! But unfortunately, all too real for too many workers.
