Comment maximising productivity = corporate greed (Score 1) 127

It's all about corporate profit at the expense of natural people.
Efficiencies allow reduced employment, but where do those people go ?
The corporations don't care.
It could be more people spending time improving society and general quality of life, arts, humanities, environment.
Superfluous people go on the scrap heap.

Comment Wrong decision Mercedes (Score 1) 367

The driver and passengers are protected by chassis and safety devices, the pedestrian is fully exposed.
Wrong decision Mercedes,
crash the car, you can buy another,
the occupants will probably be safe,
save the pedestrian
Does this make the programmer responsible for the pedestrians death?

Comment my worth (Score 1) 813

fuck knowledge transfers

I would and have walked away, my worth is my accumulated knowledge and abilities,
if you want me to do a job, I'll do it,
if you want someone else to do a job, they can do it,
never expect me to do someone else's work for them.

The sooner everyone stops passing on knowledge the harder it will be to get shafted.
The employer and contracting company will have the expense of running up a large number of new workers.
It could even blow up in their faces. The only thing companies understand is money.

Sounds like workers need to unite to have enough power to face up to the employers.
Sounds like union talk, well it's not.
Companies are well organised with industry groups which give them greater strength than they have as a single company.

Workers have been loosing ground for a few decades now, the middle class is in damage control. Personal debt is sky-rocketing.
