(p. 8) Would you change places with your grandfather? Would you want to work 11 brutal hours a day… in yesterday’s Bethlehem Steel mill, a Ford Motor Company factory circa 1935? Not me. Nor would I change places with my father … who labored in a whilte-collar sweatshop, at the same company, in the same building, for 41 l-o-n-g years.
A workplace revolution is under way. No sensible person expects to spend a lifetime in a single corporation anymore. Some call this shift the "end of corporate responsibility." I call it … the Beginning of Renewed Individual Responsibility. An extraordinary opportunity to take charge of our own lives.
