This is a link to an essay on the job changing mentality that I hope to finish reading later: “The CEO of Me”. What caught my attention is the following excerpt…
“When employees are treated as short-term assets, they reinvent themselves as marketable goods, always ready to quit”
A highlight for the white collar worker: “[T]o keep stock prices high, companies not only have to pay their employees as little as possible, they must also have as temporary a workforce as their particular business can allow” (para. 8).
