What would you do if you were told to accept 'holiday dismemberment'?

Post  precinct14 on Sun May 22, 2011 4:17 am

Bosses of a Shanghai company told their employees that they would have to work the May 2 bank holiday, but that there would be compensation in the form of two-minute micro- holidays distributed over the rest of the year. Some staff members, who suspected that 120 seconds of holiday would not, in this atomised form, make a substantial difference to their lives , are understood to have flown into a rage. I don't know, you offer the workforce leave, every day of the year, and that's all the thanks you get. What does ATU think about this visionary holiday scheme?

That doesn't sound much of a deal to me.

sorry to break it to you Eddie, God of all Knowledge......

but Chinese factories......where people are enslaved.....and often murdered against their will......heheheheheh

speech, speech.....

well, basically - I know it's tough for you Eddie, God of all Knowledge.......

but I wouldn't like you to mistake your sorry (but voluntary) lot for that of the ill-treated, tortured and forgotten Chinese factory worker.....

who dies young and poor - em, I have the statistics right here.....

maybe if you took a trip to Guangdong.....and had a turn on the production line......you might end your pathetic, distended rant against your employers......(which I'm sure is genuine, but gets a bit tedious after a while - why don't you get a different bloody job instead of this endless shit?)

I really like you a lot (I really do) - but instead of posting the awful experience of working for London Underground ad infinitum

why don't you bloody get another job - it's not rocket science

and as for comparing your lot to our poor Chinese friends - that's a bit of a stretch isn't it?

there's 'downtrodden' and 'downtrodden' Rolling Eyes

oh, yes.....I can be even more stupid.......

why don't you compare yourself to someone in Sudan for example or India.....surely your plight is more desperate than the sorriest half-human African or Indian (or possibly even Brazilian)

perhaps you go every day to the rubbish tip to find some foul, decayed food - that surely is similar to working for London Underground

in fact, I'm getting pretty sick of it......

fukking get another job, OK?

I tried to line you up with something but it didn't work.......so solly.......

you have a brain (obviously) - put it to use and get another job instead of this endless carping at your employer and your working conditions

and I was slightly offended when you compared yourself to a hopeless third world worker.......for whom, in the singular and in the multiple, I have a lot of genuine concern for........(and even more concern for people in the third world who have no work - so fukkin get over it)

as Doc would say, that was the straw........that fukked with my brain.....heheheh
