Forum Post: Working Class...Management by Stress

invented by Toyota "Management by Stress" is now used by American companies like UPS and Amazon to grind the working man and woman into half empty shells of healthy humans. The Japanese commit suicide in droves and American CEOs who make $$$14 million a year$$$ like UPS's CEO seem to think this is a great way to boost worker productivity here in our once hopeful thriving nation that used to be a beacon for all other countries because of our 'quality of life and standards of labor'.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Management by Stress technique is notorious for causing psychological breakdowns and health problems in workers. Todays CEO's choose to inflict harrassing and psychological mind games with our fellow Americans to "boost productivity" of the working people...the idea being to stress them so much their reaction to allieviate the fear and worry is to work harder and faster to make the abuse stop...they do but the abuse never stops ...the theory being to continue pushing their boundaries and window of tolerance to gain the highest peak of performance and keep upping the pressure and moving back the goalposts to make them work ever faster and harder...these are our people America. The time for our help and relief from worker abuse is now. Union labor is important to all labor but it is not enough these CEO's who embrace this lazy unimaginiative and innovatively dead and deadly way of leading need to go.

Without stopping this and setting standards for worker well being...companies will continue to hobble into the future on square wheels...and all labor will suffer and lose the beacon and innovation of union standards. Figuring out how to enrich workers alongside profits creates far more innovation. Companies that do are usually more successful with greater profits...Sears used this Stress Management model as well (i knkw since i experienced it)...where are they now? How much does a company make when their workers all become ill and disabled? How focused can they be on their jobs or customer service when they are too busy replaying mental mind games or being micromanaged and harrassed? Or spending all day worrying about their future and family who depends on them? What mistakes are they making as a result of not being able to focus that result in errors loss. What money is spent on psychologists and professional abusers rather than on real actual innovations that dont also have the hidden cost of health effects to workers and their families and spill out into society as a whole?... What is the overall effect of this on our society and population?....

This sets the model for all other greed driven CEO's...coming to your company soon...if it hasn't already. This is what happens when you work in the few remaining jobs that can't be outsourced. If they can't replace you with a robot...they enact Management by Stress...otherwise known as psychological abuse.

We must keep labor strong...we must Unionize or Co-op all chains and retail like Wal Mart. We must sue companies for knowingly and with this intent causing workers mental and physical stress...assaulting their health and happiness and the American standard and way of life as well as their families -who also feel the pains of financial fear from threats of firing every day for years from Management by Stress- even more so when that loved one becomes sick either physically or mentally it causes a chain reaction in that entire family perhaps affecting generations down the line.

Management by stress is immoral and should be illegal. We need to hold these Ceo's accountable with manslaughter charges or perhaps even premeditated murder charges ( since the plan is to cause as much stress as possible and we all know the deadly effects of stress on the human body) when workers become sick, anxiety ridden, and or die from the inflicted harm of 'Management by Stress'. Stress Kills. Any company practicing Management by Stress should face legal and monetary consequence. Here in America...we don't do 'death by labor. ' whatever nice term you want to label it...'Management by Stress...equals Death by Labor. '

This is profiting of the minds and backs of workers to an extreme degree. Bezos sits on his billions while his workers lives and health and psyches fall apart. Have American workers become as disposable tissue paper and boxes and the disposable wares being delivered? Instead of including workers in on the success they help create or imagining what happy and healthy workers can accomplish...this is all the dysfunctional desert brains of America's CEO's can come up with? Workers are destroyed and discarded (Which really represents these Narcissistic CEO's feel inside they can't envision the beauty humans are capable of ...sad). Shame on these Ceo's and shame on our politicians for enabling the abuse.

When humans nurture one another...greatness blossoms. Even plants decay... under stressful environments...nothing grows but the weeds. Wonder what happens if they actually looked a bit deeper at centuries of psychological outcomes instead of labor camp statistics and how to get people by on the least amount of rations while abusing them to death. Nurturing is the fundamental ingredient to all growth it is a fact...do the opposite...and it withers, implodes, decays...shrinks and goes extinct... Ups and Amazon will see... law of nature and balance. Science always evens the score...and injustice has a counterweight. Employees ...you know those who carry out the actual task...are sort of fundamental to profits. Nurture or decay...weeds or flowers? Give workers sustenance or strip off their identities and dignity? Who is going to stand up for you when it comes down to it? Workers who have been nurtured. Noone else can protect a company better. So toss your fundamental ally to the dirt...the company will join them there eventually.

Stress shortens telomeres and physically and irreversibly ages the body and organs. So if a company can't physically age like a human how is it still human...sort of an unfair fight having no telomeres but assaulting those of a worker (cuts down on pension costs when they die before they can even retire) -which banks and WS looove. This sounds like a murderous plan to me ...work them into a pulp, then watch them die...( like a death camp) so we aren't trying companies who practice Management by Stress for murder yet why???... Another argument for Move to Ammend corporate personhood.

Thanks...I have seen The Corporation. Its is really scary. The one percent want more and more. They lack any sense of humanity. They view people born without money as lesser beings...lab rats for their sickening social experiments. They are as bad as the Nazis perhaps worse because they have far more power than Hitler. They own every military...every government...every market...every media outlet. I see no way to fight their war on the 99 percent. About 500 people vs the world? Perhaps we need to individualize the fight publicly attach their faces to their misdeeds document them as paparazzi document celebrities? I mean it feels that opressive right? I feel we are becoming totally and completely opressed, farmed, leased, and controlled by people who want to shove their personality disordered ideas down the throats of all people and basically steal our money, labor, land, and upward mobility. They are common thieves, liars, as well as extremist in both ideas of culture and finances. They believe their way must be the way we all must live and they are forcing their psychotic absolutist ways of thinking on us all with their Heritage foundations and Super Pacs Alec. They are creating a New World Order and laughing as the 99 attempt to stop it. We are at war...absolutely we are at war already...and we all know it. The time for pleading and negotiations is ending. The people must rebel. The working class need a National Job Walk Off... Massive boycotts...no shopping months...cut their purse strings shut them down. This is where we do have some power. Also fuck republicans for ever...we can never again risk another Trump...nor Republican held congress. They are done. Young people rise...let's vote all these old fuckers 10 term cuetips out.

This Trumpian egg between your ass cheek game show hazing to keep your job was invented by Narcissists who have a classified psychological disorder. Any CEO embracing this is lazy and crafty as opposed to inspired and innovative, and is costing shareholders a hidden worker ticking health time bomb - that WILL very quickly bite their wallets in the ass.
