“If you don’t like your job, you don’t strike. You just go in everyday and do it really half-assed. That’s the American way!” H.J. Simpson
I love the Simpsons & use that quote, but I disagree. (Homer is a lucky idiot after all.) You use your whole ass to affect change to make it better for all.
From what I've seen, strikes are much more popular in Europe.
Back in the 70s or 80s, it almost brought the Italian economy down. Especially strikes of ATCs hit the tourism industry.
I don't do anything half-assed. I've had jobs I didn't like...particularly this place that made industrial cardboard tubing. After the first day, I gave them my 2-week notice. I worked like a fiend 'till then, like I always do, and then skated.
If you don't like your job, my advice is to try and change it if you can (spearheading a Union vote is one good way), or find a different one if you can't or if it's not worth it to try.
You don’t like your job, you just quit and get a better one.
Submission is not the American way.
