Default How work kills us

How work kills us
A book excerpt and interview with Jeffrey Pfeffer of Stanford University, author of “Dying for a Paycheck”

Quote:
The Economist: What are the main ways that work harms workers?

Jeffrey Pfeffer: Work harms employees in two fundamental ways. In the US, employment status and your employer determine your access to health-care—if you will have health insurance, how much you will pay, and who will care for you. Gallup reports that 33% of people said they had to forgo filling a prescription or seeing a doctor during the preceding year because of cost.

Second, employers affect the stress-inducing conditions of work: work-family conflict, long work hours, absence of control over one’s work environment, and economic insecurity. Stress makes people sick both directly and by inducing unhealthy individual behaviours such as smoking, drinking, and overeating.

Americans work too hard. Your life shouldn't be work, people should be identified by where they work. That is why I am not going to do it any longer than I have to. **** this ****. Work is for suckers

My work has very good medical, dental, vacations and overall environment. They treat us like family. It's too bad that not everyone gets that. When I was younger though i have crappy benefits. You just have to work hard and keep trying to move up.

Experimenting with a guaranteed basic income isn't a bad idea, ya know.

Healthcare need to be decoupled from employment. Most of America is apathetic and stuck in jobs for healthcare coverage... it’s stupid

You got that right.

It's a HORRIBLE IDEA in a city (and state) that is beyond bankrupt.

I wonder how many billions the city's corporations didn't have to pay in tax breaks so the uber wealthy scumbags who already own everything could get even more in their pockets at the expense of those who have very little in the last tax cut Rump did?

Wonder what kind of dent that could make in the city treasury?

Sweden actually put that up for a vote last year or the year before. It was voted down but as automation takes over there will be no other alternative.

Wait until 3 million truck drivers lose their job due to automation. That will be a game changer.

Do you douche?

Unless you have an infection, your vagina's flora and fauna are best left alone.

I mean there aren't enough studies to show that it works or doesn't yet and we need more and more cities to try it on larger scales. We are approaching a tipping point and we don't have an answer for what will happen when people don't have a way to make a living.

Ooh, there's the good old misogynistic gender attacks right on cue, and the usual liberal silence by those who claim they're against misogynistic gender attacks.

Do you also racially attack black conservatives? I bet you do.


And Wog? You didn't deny you aren't working.

Just make sure not to use a douche that's scented. Your vagina is delicate.

Yeah, so, I realize you haven't seen a p***Y since you ran out of money for Playboy, but you could resolve that by getting a job.

Just make sure that if you do douche, do so rarely and choose those with the gentlest ingredients.

Be nice to your vagina and it will be nice to you!

I realize you enjoy douche-related "insults," but you really should strive to be more original and creative.

Check out your local natural pharmacy. They often have feminine products that treat your genitals right.

No. Just, no.

Leave gender-specific insults out, please.

This warning applies to both sides of the political spectrum.

Thanks!

Perhaps if you stopped trolling and spamming the board, and actually brought something of value to the table, people wouldn't treat you with such total disregard? You get what you give. You abuse, you get abused. Is that some kind of mystery to you?

How is that an insult? It's merely good advice.

Over nyuKKK's head, because he's not really a she.
