How long have you worked for your company? If you’ve reached the five-year mark, then you have already been with your employer longer than the average American stays with the same company. In this tough economy, tenure can be hard to reach. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 12 percent of Americans 16 years and older have been with their current employer for more than ten years.

Loyalty, the lost quality
Loyalty, it does no good once your marketable skills have gone to Asia, and the geniuses in charge can't figure out another line of business. Maybe you go back to school, maybe you just find another job, either way you start at the bottom again.
It does no good when some punk, fresh out of college will do your job for nothing. Never mind that it takes him twice as long for half the quality, working all those extra hours is seen as 'desire.' "You gotta want it!"
Sadly the new norm is to change companies in order to advance.
I hate looking for work!
OK I forgot those Student Unions
One place that I was conned into working is a big furniture place here where Unions are frowned upon. I watched as one guy picked up some cardboard to throw over some oil in the back of his ute and was created by the Police for stealing the contents of the Cardboard Box. Didn't matter that he was on Camera picking the box out of the rubbish he stole the contents and there was nothing that could be said that would be acceptable as far as the business was concerned he done it and they wanted him prosecuted. Another worker there had someone in management steal something from them and they where told to leave the premises. When they got into the Industrial Relations Court the Company a guy who wasn't on Site insisted that the person in question had quit and he couldn't understand why this action was being undertaken. Didn't matter that the Company Representative who was their witness didn't work at that site he knew it all. I'm just glad that I escaped that place all together it was a really Toxic Environment.
Then there was the Super Store selling Non Microsoft Computers which went broke owing thousands to their contractors/workers. Sure that was Bad Management more than anything else but they drove a extremely bad bargain even if they paid you, it just was much worse when they didn't.
I see professional organizations in the same light as Unions which they effectively are and there are good and bad in everything. As Mentioned above the Shop Assistances Union was a disaster where Management could do no wrong and the greedy workers where always wrong.
I've seen way too many instances where the companies have screwed the workers over and I just firmly believe if they refuse to have Unions in the place then it's not a place I want to work or have my staff exposed to. Some may be great but I've yet to see any of them.
