Employers Have No Compassion for Employees

Without trade unions...

Let's be honest ... Again?

Employers are horrible but we need them so they can do whatever they want.

The point: no employee should be expected to work a shift longer than 8 hours.

I'm in England.

I have worked 12-hour shifts and, even when the work is interesting, they shuck. The feeling of having no free time, me-time or them-time is soul destroying.

And (sorry) on minimum wage, which is 70 sutn % of the population, you get - after tax - around just 340 nuggets for working 5 days of 12 hour shifts - with the rest able to be 8 sleep - 2 life - 2 travel and transition - all in a place where rent, travel and bills for the week are about 340 nuggets.

"So you gotta work six..."

There are 24 hours in every day, humans are recommended to have about 8 hours sleep, what a great world it would be if we made it so that the other 16 hours were allowed to be evenly split between work and life.

Honestly, we're talking about thirds of our lives.

"8 hours a day maximum!.."

If employers had 8 hour shift regulations there would be more jobs. I don't want to get into the semantics of it all but, just think (if we shouldn't do). A 24 hour business-function would be split between 3 shifts: maybe 11-7, 7-3 and 3-11. Places that open at 7 and shut at 1 could have 6:30-2:30, 4-12 and 5:30-1:30 instead of 12 hour effin shifts.

"Why not?"

There are many ways to stack timeslots. 12 hour shifts should mean (if they Must exist), resulting from wondrous compassionate decency in salary and reliance, a four day working-week.

This bull is just one manifestation of employers' arsewholery.

Apologies for this one...
