Array ( [sid] => 187061 [catid] => 1 [aid] => mick [title] => IT/'/s a DAY/'/S WORK [time] => 2020-07-02 00:22:32 [hometext] => facts about our jobs... [bodytext] => Multitasking’s asking for problems that you keep.
The effects on us are equal to losing one nights sleep.

France’s average work week is an enviable way to thrive.
We work 40 hours; but they work 35.
The Netherlands does better – we would work less time.
Hollanders only slave away each week for 29!
They have 520 more free hours than we do...wow!.
But then they don’t get paid for them, like we do right now!
Time or money, whatta choice. We need both, somehow.

80% of Americans agree on one thing too...
they have a job that they don’t like but
can’t find one they do!

If we didn’t have to go to work,
we’d have 90, 000 hours to spare.
And we’d save 100 hours a year just getting there!

A seventy hour work week takes its toll on man.
That’s why dying at the work desk is common in Japan.
It’s called “karoshi” and they work so hard we hear,
10, 000 working Japanese fall prey to it each year.

Because their sleeping habits tend to be so poor,
nightshift workers will be injured over two times more.

Email, memos, phonecalls! We have a lot to say.
We each average over 200 messages each day.

Congratulations on the job! Statistically you’ve won.
For every 1400 resumes, they only hire ONE!

Procrastinating’s right for some. With much less time we see,
they have much better focus, and work more efficiently!

“Smartasset” is a dot com that will calculate your pay
and tell you how much money you will actually take away.

At the end of any URL type “?.jpg”
And you’ll can use an airport’s wifi absolutely free.

The average raise is 3% for every year we stay.
But changing jobs affords us 10-20% more pay.
Staying at one company may seem like the best,
but in a life time workers average 50% less.

Leonardo Da Vinci was a business man per se.
We can thank him for the way we interview today.
He is credited with writing the world’s first resume.

Lots of fun, thanks. Always entertaining to read your /'/did you know/'/ posts.

Multitasking leads to poorer work performance and is a total myth (we just switch back and forth between tasks till our brain is exhausted), so I/'/m not surprised it results in the equivalent of sleep deprivation. Open plan offices also reduce performance and raise stress - it took COVID-19 to show they are also major transmission vectors for all kinds of illness (like we didn/'/t know already). No more /'/soldiering on/'/, that/'/s for sure.

Once I calculated the time related to work not compensated for (travel, preparation, recovery, extra work), the cost (fares, petrol, clothes, meals), and the tax I was paying and not getting back, I walked away from a so-called lucrative office job. /'/Willing Slaves/'/ is a great book about the con job modern workplaces have inflicted on people. Time to rethink what real production and satisfaction is....
