I understand what you are talking about, but it is not always the employee mentality to blame.
When we lived in a world where you could work the same job your whole life, it wasn't as competitive. But now, a company will kick you off the second they get a chance.
With so much uncertainty, it changes the behavior. Employees can't be devoted to each other when employers no longer show what devotion is.
The bottom line is that if you don't like it, go back to being self-employed. There must have been some reason you took a job: better pay? More benefits? Steadier work? Working for someone else is always a trade-off between personal freedom and some sort of benefit. Perhaps you just needed a reminder of why you were self-employed in the first place. It's not as if you were in the Army. Your presence is not required. Quit. (And for fun, see my sig)

Learn to blame others...
You will be running the place in no time.
Unfortunately, I think you're right. Why is that do you think? Do people seriously not see through that?
