    Re: Entitlement

    Here is a template of what I suggested to management in which I have received more negative than positive responses:
    EI
    Employee Involvement
    "This is the participation of employees discussing, brainstorming, and suggesting ideas for improvement, goal setting, and planning in order to help an organization fulfill its mission and meet its objectives. This involvement is based on the thinking that people involved in a process who know it best are more motivated to help themselves and the organization continuously improve."

    Why many employees feel devalued even in booming job market
    August 16, 2019

    ...For all the U.S. economy’s robust job growth, White and many people like him don’t feel much like beneficiaries of what is now the longest expansion on record. The kinds of jobs they once enjoyed — permanent positions, with stability, bonuses, pensions, benefits and opportunities to move up — are now rarer.

    “It’s not as easy as it was,” White says.

    White’s evolution from employee to contractor is emblematic of a trend in the American workplace a full decade after the recession ended: The economy keeps growing. Unemployment is at a half-century low. Yet many people feel their jobs have been devalued by employers that increasingly assign a higher priority to shareholders and customers.

    Economic research, government data and interviews with workers sketch a picture of lagging wages, eroding benefits and demands for employees to do more without more pay. The loyalty and security that many say they once felt from their employers have diminished, and with it some measure of their satisfaction.

    Experts point to a sea change in the American job experience that began decades ago but has grown more visible across a wider spectrum of jobs. They see a confluence of forces squeezing workers — from globalization and workplace automation to a decline of labor unions, fiercer price competition and a growing use of outside firms and contractors...

    In some cases, work is further outsourced to still other companies. Sometimes, workers are hired as contractors, who are technically self-employed yet often report to the same workplace as full-fledged employees.

    An example is the hotel industry. Weil’s research found that many major brands have sold nearly all their real estate and shifted to a franchise system. The properties — now owned by private equity firms, investor groups and real estate investment trusts — pay a franchise fee to brands such as Hilton, Marriott and Hyatt.

    They often then contract with a third-party management company to run the hotel. That company might hire staffing firms to provide housekeeping, maintenance and food service. In some cases, Weil said, it’s possible that not a single worker in a Hilton hotel is actually a Hilton employee, though they must adhere to Hilton’s standards.

    “You might have 10 different employers, sometimes with overlapping authority, all in that building,” he said.

    Uber and Instacart are other examples of the fissured workplace. So are universities that increasingly rely on adjunct professors and distribution centers that depend on independent contractors.

    Some workers, Weil said, aren’t even aware that their employer isn’t actually the company where they report to work every day. They might realize it only when they lose their job or are injured at work and learn that they aren’t protected by the employment rules and safety protections that traditional workers are...

    Scooby Doo suggests to the youth of America an alternative path for resistance against a greedy grown-up world, one achieved by outsmarting the enemy, rather than either fighting it or protesting it.

    Good news:

    Delta Airlines gives employees enormous bonus
    Jan 20th, 2020

    It’s a big company that turned huge profits, and executives decided to give every single employee an enormous bonus.

    CNN reports Delta Air Lines is sharing $1.6 billion with its 90,000 employees. Each one will receive a check for 16.6 percent of their annual salary, which adds up to about two-months’ pay.

    “Delta would be nothing without our 90,000 people,” CEO Ed Bastian commented on LinkedIn.

    And it’s not the first time Delta has forked over a piece of the profits to its workers.

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports this is actually the sixth year in a row – but Delta is not alone.

    According to CNN, a 2018 University of Chicago study found that 38 percent of American workers said their company shared profits with its employees.

    The average amount, however, worked out to about 5 percent of their annual pay.

    Opinion: The Hidden Depression Trump Isn't Helping -- NYTimes.com
    Feb. 8, 2020

    More Americans die every two weeks from drugs, alcohol and suicide -- "deaths of despair" -- than died in 18 years of war in Afghanistan and Iraq...

    Important new research finds that 20 million Americans, particularly those with low levels of education, describe all 30 of the last 30 days as "bad mental health days."

    ...It is these working-class Americans, white and black alike, who have seen earnings collapse, family structure disintegrate and mortality climb. These Americans are earning less on average, adjusted for inflation, than their counterparts back in the 1970s.

    "Our story of deaths of despair is essentially a long-run account of destruction of the working class," Deaton said.
