The way we’re working isn’t working. Even if you’re lucky enough to have a job, work is a depleting, dispiriting experience, and in some obvious ways, it’s getting worse.


As if I needed someone to tell me.

I make better sales than my boss. I've been there a month and a half and I'm beating her and my coworker by about forty percent this month. She's been running the store for years and works way more hours than me.

Today she told me that the CEO has been watching the cameras and thinks I sit down too much. I never sit when customers are present, of course, but that didn't matter. She got rid of all the chairs and said she would check the security tapes on a daily basis to make sure I didn't sit on the drop safe instead.

I sat on the damn safe. I can't stand for six hours straight, and they haven't convinced me to try.

She asked me why I don't seem like I respect management. Ha.
