Current Workplace Revolution Benefits Labor

(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.
