All work, no pay

Bosses love to praise workers who spend extra hours for the company and ask for no extra pay. They call them "team player" or "model employee", but there are other terms for someone who works long hours for no pay: "workaholic" if it's by choice and "slave" if not. These model employees are either sick or mentally enslaved by the company, neither of which sounds praiseworthy to me.

PS - Then there are those that are literally enslaved.
PPS - Which is, of course, much worse.

i dunno... if you're literally enslaved you don't have to worry about bills or nothin....

Yeah, just beatings, freezing to death sleeping on a concrete floor dressed in sackcloth, and constant hunger! But no bills! Yay(!)

I think I'll pass on that one. I'll pay the bills if it's the price of human rights and freedom.
