Would that we could. This used to happen...sigh. Then they busted most of our unions and left most of us out there to fend for ourselves. hey know there's strength in numbers, so this was a very clever plan. This makes it a lot tougher to organize...but look how they organized a revolution in the ME via FaceBook and Twitter! There was a UK-oriented thread about this a few days ago that was very interesting.

Worker burn out?
Is this the new politically correct term to define slavery?
Lol! Guess the masters are really peeing in their pants now and are attempting to downplay the issue out of fear of revolt, even terming it as a neurological mental issue. I guess it is indeed a mental issue, if a human willingly offers himself up as a slave instead of using his will and power to stand up to being tyrannised.

Worker burnout syndrome? Are you actualy kidding me? I can understand a steel worker getting arthritis from working long hours in industrial forges, and welders getting similar issues from the constant strain underwhich they operate. I can understand a postman getting osteoporosis from bad posture under the wieght of his heavy bag day in day out, and getting cramped up, mangled feet from the masses of mileage they go through every year, but non physical work shouldnt be able to burn a person out on its own! What kind of pathetic , weak nonsense is that?
Cops getting sick because they have been shot too many times in thier career, ok I see the problem. Carpenters getting RSI from sawing, totaly get it. But clerks just simply having a collapse of thier bodily health through stress? I think we must have forgotten how to raise strong people in this age of central heating and air conditioning. The natural excesses of our planet, extremes of cold and heat, used to empower us by survival of them. We used to have much tougher lives than we do now, and its only in a pampered and soft present day that any one just "burns out" . Back in times of yore, this species was the top predator on the planet, capable to a man of marching for miles and miles a day just in search of lunch, and capable of shoeing horses, weilding swords and using bows to hunt, and to kill his enemies.
What are we capable of now? What inspiration can be drawn from a people so pathetic that mere paperwork can be accused of being responsible for a persons failing health... what the hell happened to us?
